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]

Oberlin grad & expert SAT/ACT, PSAT, SSAT, ADHD, study skills

Hi folks! I?m coming back to Wyzant after a few years working for a test prep company in the Boston area, so please forgive the newness of my profile! First, a bit about me. I graduated from Oberlin College in 2010 and completed a fellowship in political organizing at Harvard University's EJ Safra Center for Ethics in 2015. My tutoring background is in test prep and study skills. Tutoring and coaching teenagers is an enduring passion of mine that I've now returned to full-time. I help my st... [more]

Science and Math for the Non-Traditional Student

I offer science and math teaching for under-challenged, over-challenged, home schooled, twice-exceptional, interrupted, and other non-traditional learners. I have ten years of experience as a teacher, and have been a dedicated private tutor since 2013. I've worked with many wonderful students who are constantly teaching me that there's a different "best teaching strategy" for every learner. The modern classroom doesn't serve the needs of all students. Too many students believe that they ar... [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 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]

Certified Tutor in Most Subjects:SAT/ACT/GRE/SSAT/ISEE Test Prep, Math

As an author, an English minor, and a communications devotee, I absolutely love the ACT English section. The English section is comprised of multiple choice questions. An essay is optional. Students who work hard and study the grammar, usage, and mechanics review I give them, can look forward to improving their writing score a great deal. We focus on the areas of standard written English that are most frequently tested in the ACT English section, such as subject-verb agreement, ambiguous pronouns, parallel construction, dangling modifiers, coordination and subordination, etc. It?s simple a [more]
