Craig Taylor

28+ years of experience w/out the boring teacher personality!

Brooklyn, NY


Shortly after graduating from Duke University in 1990, Craig joined The Princeton Review, where he was a star tutor for more than twenty-five years. Having tutored over 2000 students during his career, with unparalleled results, he is thrilled to currently be a part of Noodle Pros.

Focusing exclusively on private tutoring for the last twenty years, the last ten of which were executed predominantly online, Craig possesses a breadth of experience in both test prep and distance learning that gives him the unique ability to quickly pinpoint, analyze, and diagnose areas of weakness and design approaches specifically tailored to each student. Whether it is the highest scoring graduate level students (Craig scored in the rarefied 99.6%ile on the LSAT) or students with learning differences, test anxiety, or are just “too cool for school,” Craig has the experience and expertise to achieve the highest score improvements possible.

He has also helped hundreds of students prepare both undergraduate and graduate school essays and applications, guiding candidates through successful admission to Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, Columbia, Yale, Duke, Cornell, Brown, London Business School, IMD plus pretty much every Top 20 Undergraduate, Law, and Business program on the planet.

Craig also has extensive experience with international students from Great Britain, Japan, Germany, Mexico, China, Spain, France, Canada, Korea, Italy, Russia, India, Bangladesh, Hong Kong, and the Czech Republic.

He has led in-house GMAT programs for Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan, among other corporations, as well as pro bono SAT programs for students in Harlem.

An accomplished musician, songwriter, and manager, Craig’s bands sold over 50,000 albums and shared the stage with acts such as Skrillex, Stone Temple Pilots, Incubus, Dr. John, and Rebirth Brass Band. He has also run multiple fundraising events & festivals, including The Great Big Bacon Picnic and A Midsummer Night’s Jam for the People.

One conversation with Craig will convince you that he is uniquely qualified to help you achieve the best possible scores and admission results.
