mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-latin; color: #222222; background: white;">Nina recognizes that every student has different strengths and weaknesses based on which the challenges posed by each test varies. She, therefore, ensures that students are equipped to do their best by providing them with simple tools, the right materials and techniques, and additional support to cater to their individual needs. Nina’s techniques are as simple as being able to recognize patterns and learning a few easier methods to solve math problems, or reading the blurb at the beginning of each passage of the Reading section more closely.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span style="mso-bidi-font-family: Calibri; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-latin; color: #222222; background: white;"> </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span style="mso-bidi-font-family: Calibri; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-latin; color: #222222; background: white;">Nina was born and raised in Long Island, NY, and was a high achiever in school. She won medals at numerous interscholastic mathematics competitions, such as Mathletes and Math Olympiads. At the age of 13, she was identified as a talented youth by Johns Hopkins University. For this distinction, she had to take the SAT, which is an integral standardized test for college admissions in the United States, at the age of 12 instead of 16 (the usual age at which the test is taken).</span></p>
