STEPHEN LOBO Stephen Lobo has been teaching standardized test preparation for roughly two decades and have taught or tutored in various capacities for close to thirty years. He teaches the ACT, GRE and GMAT preparation classes for the University of Utah's Test Preparation program. His background is in biomedical engineering and has worked in medical research, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology.
"I've really enjoyed teaching for the Test Prep program. It gives me a chance to share some of my strategies and tips for academic success. There,s nothing more satisfying than being able to help students learn a new concept or master a technique. Over the years, I've been able to refine my curriculum to concentrate on those strategies that have proven to increase test scores."
Furthermore, Stephen claims that "Ultimately, students drive their own success. My approach is to coach them on useful test techniques. The only way to internalize these techniques is to rigorously practice them. My role is as an advisor and a coach; I can help guide and influence students to follow approaches which I have found successful, but they must ultimately discover their own best path to success. It is extremely rewarding to see students who are able to achieve their goals. I look forward to helping you reach your potential!"
