My minor from Texas A&M University (1991, Cum Laude) is in Accounting. I love working with numbers! As Valedictorian of my high school class, I excelled in math, receiving A's in every math class through Calculus. I have tutored in ACT Math, as well as arithmetic through Algebra 1, and I have helped students with strategies to score more points. You might point out to me that the ACT has lots of Geometry, but that's OK, because, though I detest proofs, I love working with angles and triangles and other shapes to solve problems. Since the ACT Math section requires solving 60 problems in 60 m [more]

The ACT math test requires you to answer 60 questions in 60 minutes or less. To be successful you need both math knowledge and reasoning skills. This can be much easier if you: master a few testing strategies; have the ability to recognize a dozen common types of problems given on every ACT; and are comfortable with basic algebra and geometry concepts. I focus on these three areas in each tutoring session I deliver. I am a former business school professor with a PhD in management science and additional degrees in mathematics and computer science. I provide personal tutoring to students from m [more]

I love learning - and firmly believe that while few things are more frustrating than failing to "get it", the fastest way to gain knowledge and understanding of a concept is to talk to a person who knows what you want to know and understands what you want to understand - and then apply that knowledge and understanding by doing something with it. I love helping people "get it"! I have tutored students from many grade levels - from grade school students with basic math to college students with ... [more]

All tutoring is tailored to the individual with great emphasis placed on the student?s long and short-te... [more]

I am a former high school math teacher that relocated to the Dallas area for a Ph.D. program in education research. I am also attending school for my masters in statistics. Tutoring is fun because it allows me to obtain an individual understanding of how students learn. I like to make math relevant but also make connections between non-mathematical content. What can you expect: Friendly and knowledgeable help regarding your specific needs. If the way you are being taught doesn't work fo... [more]

The Math section of the ACT Exam is extremely complex, as it involves material from multiple different math subject areas. I focus my ACT Math lessons on two things: 1) completing the problems on the page and ensuring an understanding of necessary steps to complete for each type of problem. 2) rebuilding essential fundamental skills that make up the problems, ensuring students have all necessary skill sets to execute more complicated problems Developing fundamental and advanced skill sets for execution of the ACT leads to improved test scores, as well as a more comprehensive understanding [more]

I have always had a strong passion for math and music and I love to share that passion with other students. One of my goals as a tutor is to help each student acquire a stronger grasp on the concepts associated with each subject so that he or she can use those building blocks to understand higher level concepts in the future. I also try to develop a relationship with each student so that we can work as a team to find the best method of teaching for him or her. In the 2015-16 school year, I ... [more]
