Math, science, and test prep tutor fresh out of Stanford

For over two years, I've been helping students achieve the scores they need to get into their dream schools. Test prep can be stressful for students and families, so I always bring patience and enthusiasm to each session, as well as the proven techniques that I've used to help dozens of students significantly improve their performance. In 2015 and 2016 I worked with an elite California tutoring agency. Striving for an top-notch test score, or mastering math and physics classes, can be daunting and frustrating. Sometimes a teacher doesn?t explain the material well, or abstract concepts don?t qu [more]

Perfect Scores: SAT 1600, ACT 36, GRE Quant 170, Chemistry/MathL2 800

ACT English requires two skills: punctuation and vocabulary. It's similar to SAT Writing, but it doesn't have any vocabulary questions, and you get less time per problem. Punctuation is straightforward to learn. The ACT recycles the same kinds of English questions over and over again, and if you practice the rules, you'll eventually get all of the questions right. You'll need to bring in your ACT Reading skills to do questions involving adding/deleting sentences, modifying phrases to make them more relevant, and putting sentences in order. ACT Reading is easier than SAT Reading, so you migh [more]

Academic Tutor Extraordinaire

The ACT English section is somewhat-- but not entirely-- equivalent to the SAT Writing section. Both require knowledge of basic writing rules (such as correct modifier placement, subject/verb agreement, correct pronoun usage, etc.), but the ACT has a LOT more questions on punctuation, for which I have developed a handout that is clear, thorough, and on point. Motivated students have increased their English scores by as much as nine points (where the top score is 36) and there is not a single student who hasn't seen a substantial increase. I work with student solely on the areas they need to l [more]
