English, ACT, Writing, Anatomy/Physiology, Algebra 1, Geometry

I have taught ACT prep for over 15 years (in both group and private setting), and I am a former high school English teacher.

Though I have successfully worked with students trying to increase their ACT by one point to achieve a perfect score, I specialize in working with struggling/reluctant students and athletes trying to maintain a required GPA. While teaching high school English, my focus w [more]

The day is still clear in my mind as I was about to take a big step on the path leading to college and beyond. Suffice it to say I did fine. Not having seen an ACT test since then, my mind flashed back to that day when I took Wyzant's qualifying test. Once again, it all came flooding back and reinforced that what I had been doing as an English teacher at the middle school level for thirty years was contributing to success a few years later on my students' ACT day.
