Need better grades? Ellen - Certified: Math, English, Test prep.

I have tutored students individually and taught classes to prepare them for college entrance exams, such as ACT, for over 15 years. I truly enjoy and have been fortunate to have helped each student gain confidence in taking the ACT, improve their English section and composite scores, get into the school of their choice and meet their goals. I have tutored students at all levels and all abilities, from struggling to gifted, as well as those with special needs. I have worked with students accepted to MIT, Wellesley, UC Berkeley, BC, BU, Northeastern, UMass and UNH, to name a few [more]

Experienced teacher supports student success in skill building

I am a certified high school English teacher and have worked with students for many years helping them understand the rules of punctuation, grasp grammar and usage, detect and rewrite awkward sentences, avoid redundancy, and maintain relevancy. The English section of the ACT focuses on those writing skills, and through practice and careful explanation when needed, the student gains mastery and confidence. I have supplemental material for all aspects of the ACT English, and we work together to check off all the areas as mastery is accomplished. [more]

Learning should be fun! (2015 Top Tutor!)

I have tutored both the ACT and the SAT multiple times. In January, Wyzant named its "Top 250 Tutors in 2015" and I am very proud to be on that list! It was such an honor to be recognized! The following vignette tells you almost everything you need to know about me and my methods and my success rate - While helping a student with calculus, she spontaneously exclaimed, "This is the most fun I've had in math all year!" This was coming from an average student whose goal was "don't fail math." But after working with her for a few months, she got an ... [more]

Ivy League test prep tutor - SAT/ACT/GRE/SSAT/ISEE

I teach students the grammar issues they are tested on in the English section and provide them with a framework as to how to approach the questions. For the essay, we talk about the components of a good essay, how to argue a point, and how to provide the detailed, relevant examples to back up their point of view. I am a Dartmouth College grad and current MBA student with 16 years of professional tutoring experience and outstanding student results. I've helped coach students to 300+ point improvements on the SAT, 5+ point improvements on the ACT and 25%+ improvements on the SSAT and ISEE. I hav [more]

Harvard 2X Test Expert: Top Scores on LSAT, SAT, ACT, GMAT, and GRE

This is a test where speed and accuracy count. By practicing and locating where you make the most incorrect decisions, you can focus your attention on quickly improving your score. By strengthening your understanding of grammar, punctuation, and spelling, I can help you do much better with relatively little effort. One of my most recent students earned a 35 on this part of the ACT. Many people don't think they can learn grammar, punctuation, and spelling if they aren't native speakers. I helped a recent student improve by 8 points who is not a native speaker. [more]

Harvard Grad, SAT, College App Essays, Elementary (K-8) Teacher

My system for teaching the ACT English section is strategic and rigorous. Unlike the SAT Verbal section, the ACT English section does not require the memorization of a large number of advanced vocab words. Rather, the ACT English section tests one's knowledge of English grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, style, organization, and writing strategy. The 45 minute section test includes a total of 75 questions which fall into two separate categories: Usage/Mechanics and Rhetorical Skills. The test has 5 passages with two question formats--underlines and boxes--throughout. My students ga [more]
