    About Owen

    A native of New England, Owen graduated as valedictorian from the Williston Northampton School, where he was awarded the Joseph Sawyer prize for outstanding contributions to the intellectual and community life of the school. He went on to attend the University of Pennsylvania, majoring in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE). While at Penn, he completed independent research on the evolution and universality of ethics. He also served as a teaching assistant in a variety of game theory classes and as an editor for Student Perspectives on Institutions, Choices, and Ethics, the PPE department’s undergraduate journal, along with studying French, Italian, and Arabic.

    After graduating from Penn, Owen moved to the west coast to work full time in the test-prep industry. He has tutored students in a variety of subjects including the SAT, ACT, PSAT, LSAT, TOEFL, mathematics, and physics. He has also overseen the hiring and training of tutors and participated in the development of innovative curricula that address the changing formats of major standardized tests in the past several years. Owen has traveled around the world; while currently based in Europe, he has tutored students—face-to-face—on five different continents.

     “About a month before the next SAT test date, I decided that I wanted to take the Physics Subject Test. I took Physics at school, but there were several topics covered in the Subject Test that we hadn’t learned at school. So I decided to ask ArborBridge for help, after having already had a great experience with their ACT prep program. In the short time period of just over a month, we covered all of the unfamiliar topics on the Subject Test, with homework assignments and practice tests along the way to test my learning. My tutor Owen was friendly, knowledgeable and was really flexible with his timings, which was great because my schedule was often subject to change. With a score of 630 before any prep, I got a 760 on the actual test, which speaks volumes about the quality of ArborBridge’s tutoring.”
