As a former middle/high school math teacher, I am very effective helping struggling students to succeed in math. My expertise ranges from students just learning how to multiply and divide to those who struggle with algebra concepts or are preparing to take the SAT. My master's degree is in Math Education. My doctorate is in Quantitative Research Methods (e.g., statistics, SPSS). While there is role for memorization, I believe in focusing on working with students to develop an understanding of...

As a former SAT Math instructor for the Princeton Review, I have been tutoring for standardized tests since 2010. I focus my ACT math instruction on a two tier approach: content and strategy. Students will typically have already learned the content they need to know for the ACT by the time they take the test, but they may be out of practice, and may have even forgotten some of the topics. In addition, the ACT math section is designed to be tricky, so students may have never been exposed to the types of questions or the specific ways the questions are asked. For this reason, I review the academ [more]

I am a math nerd. My eyes actually light up when I see an intriguing math problem. When I teach ACT Mathematics, I make sure my students know what types of topics are covered on the test and how the test creators generally tests those topics. I also show my students how to get inside the minds of the test creators. That empowers students with the confidence and insight they require to attack every problem correctly. Teaching is one of my passions. As a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, I treasure education. In fact, I agree with Benjamin Franklin, the founder of the Universit [more]

I have been tutoring for the past three years, and I have helped a number of students with all 5 sections of the ACT (English, Reading, Math, Science, and Writing). I have strong standardized test scores in math, so I am able to help students review basic skills and develop test-taking strategies. I enjoy helping students learn to tackle challenging problems and refine their math skills. I am particularly good at explaining problems in different ways to help students better understand abstract concepts. [more]

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]

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 math 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]

Unlike the SAT Mathematics section, the ACT Math section covers a larger amount of content but does not require the level of sophisticated problem-solving that the SAT math does. The ACT Math covers a student's knowledge of the following topics in the following percentages: 23% pre-algebra (basic arithmetic calculations, exponents, fractions/ratios/proportions, very basic probability and statistics), 17% elementary algebra (such as algebraic equation solution through substitution, square roots and exponents, solution of quadratic equations through factoring), 15% intermediate algebra (quadrat [more]

I have a BA in Mathematics. I have been specifically trained by tutoring specialists to tutor the ACT, and I have seven semesters of teaching experience at the undergraduate college level. 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 cla [more]

Hi! I'd like to be of service. A professional writer and high school/college English writer, editor, and teacher, I now hold now Massachusetts Teaching Credential in ELA 8-12 and ESL 5-12. Prior to last year, I lived in Southern California where I held a CLEAR in ELA K-12 and Adult. (I relocated to the Boston Metro West Area in August 2016 to be close to my family here.) I have decades of professional experience as an editor, journalist, ghostwriter, and private and public charter school t... [more]

I'm a fourth-year mechanical engineering student at Boston University. My interests include sustainable energy and aerospace design. I have a solid background in math and physics, and have tutored college-level students in both fields. I can tutor subjects at all levels from middle school through college. I am available to help junior high, high school or college students with algebra, precalculus, calculus, geometry, physics, and any other related subjects. I can work with you step-by-step ...
