Stellar results require stellar instruction. 

Orion Taraban, M.A., Psy.D. has sixteen years of teaching experience and a perfect score on the GRE. After working for several major test prep companies, he became convinced that more efficient routes to mastery were possible than were commercially available. Utilizing a unique blend of erudition, humor, and common sense, Orion has refined his techniques on thousands of students, allowing his approach to evolve organically over time. The result is an original system of strategies, easy to use and simple to understand, that has become the basis of StellarGRE. In the field of education, Orion has worked as a professor of mathematics at the City University of New York, as the executive director of the non-profit Saturday School in Brooklyn, and as the master teacher of the quantitative section of the GRE for Barron's Test Prep, which continues to carry his line of instructional videos to this day. 

Orion earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drama from New York University's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts and both a master's and a doctorate in clinical psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology. He is a licensed psychologist and serves on the faculty of psychology departments throughout the Bay Area. When not teaching, he works as a psychotherapist in private practice in San Francisco and Menlo Park. He loves what he does.
