UCLA Grad Accepting Serious Test Prep Students for ACT & SAT

A whopping 65% of the ACT English section tests a relatively small handful of grammar points. For an ACT tutor to help students increase their scores, the tutor must be intimately familiar with these grammar issues. Just as important, the tutor must be skilled in explaining and reinforcing the grammar in simple terms that students can quickly grasp and apply to the test. My 10 years experience teaching both test prep and ESL has enabled me not only to master the grammar, but also to become adept at breaking it down into small, easily digestible bites. (Before becoming a full-time test prep tu [more]

Experienced Test-Prep and AP History Tutor

A lot of people are overwhelmed by this section since there are so many questions! (ACT English has 75 questions, more than any other section on the ACT or SAT.) But it's easier to get through one you learn the right approach. First, you have to learn all the rules of grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure that you likely never learned (or forgot from middle school). Then, you have to zoom out and look at passages holistically--What's the best way to phrase this sentence? Which sentence fits best within the entire passage? Where should I put this paragraph? These are useful skills if you [more]

Experienced English and Writing Tutor: Essays, SAT, ACT, AP, and More!

The ACT English section, like the SAT Writing Skills section, focuses on a limited set of grammatical rules. I teach my students these rules, how to quickly run through a mental checklist to identify the most common errors, and how to avoid any traps. The ACT English section focuses more on punctuation than does the SAT Writing Skills section, so I make sure my students solidly understand how to use a comma! Similar rhetoric-based questions are present on the ACT as are on the SAT, so I teach techniques to quickly search for and identify clues that make the correct answer obvious. The ACT ess [more]

Math Expert|Masters in Electrical Engineering|7 Years Experience

I took the ACT very recently and got a 34 on the English section and a 35 overall composite score, so I have a complete understanding of every difficulty type of ACT English question available. I have successfully tutored students to achieve similar levels of ACT success. My teaching strategy centers around testing to find areas of strength and weakness, to aggressively attack the weaknesses through regular practice, and to give detailed answers to any confusing or difficult questions. Ah Mathematics. The bane of existence for many a child. The mighty struggle of all struggles. Math can be con [more]

During the last 6 years of teaching at Top Prep companies in the Los Angeles Area, I specialized in the English portion of the ACT. I have helped students to raise their scores by 5 or 10 points in just a few short months of preparation. I am familiar with a wide variety of test prep strategies and have adapted my approach to students with a broad range of individual needs. Also, I have a PhD and so I have excellent reading and writing skills and have used those expertise to teach ACT, PSAT, ISEE, CAT, and SAT Test Prep at top test prep companies for the last six years.
