About Erica L. Meltzer
After scoring an 800 Verbal in high school, Erica Meltzer assumed she was done with the SAT for good. That changed in 2007, when she answered a Craigslist ad for an SAT tutor and inadvertently found herself in the high-pressure world of Manhattan test prep. Concerned by the lack of accurate, high-quality commercial SAT prep material, she began writing her own. Her first book, "The Ultimate Guide to SAT Grammar," has been widely praised as the most effective source of SAT grammar preparation and is currently used by tutoring companies across the United States.
A native of Brookline, Massachusetts and a graduate of Brookline High School (where she was required to memorize Strunk and White's "The Elements of Style" as a freshman), she holds a B.A. from Wellesley College and has also studied at Harvard, Columbia, and the Sorbonne. She lives and works in New York City, and you can visit her website at http://www.thecriticalreader.com.
