I have been preparing students for the Mathematics and Science Tests of the ACT exam since 2003. I am very experienced and knowledgeable about these tests, having helped many students get their highest scores on them. I will teach you specific strategies that are very useful for the Mathematics Test. These include proper pacing, strategies for utilizing the answer choices, and the most efficient approach to answering each question, among others. I will help you review the underlying math concepts, and teach you effective ways of using the calculator. For practice I use the actual ACT exams, [more]

To help me help you: 1. Please, be sure to have payment information on file. I will not respond to you otherwise. 2.

I have over 30 years of experience as a tutor and lecturer in mathematics and physics, both before and after I completed my physics & biology BA at UC Berkeley and my physics PhD at the University of Illinois. I am available for tutoring at middle school, high school, and college levels. My students feel comfortable telling me what they didn't get in class or from their textbook, and so we are able to address those issues right away. I like to first establish the knowledge base of my stud... [more]

I'm an expert in working with students to develop skills and to understand concepts. My expertise is especially strong in problem solving, and applying concepts to real world situations. I enjoy working with students. When my son was in college, we used to problem solve on the phone and via email. His classmates wanted him to "rent me out". I'm a 25-year veteran of Silicon Valley with multiple degrees in Engineering. I am currently an Adjunct Professor at the Golden Gate University Schoo... [more]

My name is Megan. I am a graduate from the University of Miami. I received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) in May 2016 with a dual major in Accounting and Computer Information Systems, and a minor in mathematics. In December 2016, I received my Master's in Accounting (Macc) from the University of Miami as well. I graduated cum laude, with As in all the subjects I tutor. Additionally I passed the 4 parts of the CPA exam. I currently have a full time job but can genera... [more]

When I began tutoring a few years ago, I firmly believed that anyone could do well in mathematics, all the way through Calculus, provided you are relatively fluent in a few formulas and make time for regular problem sets. My experience over that time has only confirmed my suspicions, and its has been a great pleasure to work with many of my students. I have always found joy in getting to the point of a big concept and keeping the focus on the purposeful real-world applications that many of ... [more]

Hello! I am a PhD from the department of Rhetoric at UC Berkeley who has 15+ years of tutoring and teaching experience. In addition to several years teaching at UC Berkeley, I have privately tutored and taught Kaplan courses for the following tests: SSAT, ACT, SAT, LSAT, and GRE. I have also worked with clients on reading and writing skills, aided students with college and grad school applications, and I have done targeted work with youth (high school and middle school). My core area of inte... [more]

The standard approach of tutoring ACT Math seems to be reviewing math topics and working on as many problems as possible from an ACT practice book. This type of preparation is time consuming and has limited success. My proven method is very different. I believe students benefit more from an individualized approach targeting their weaknesses. I teach students various strategies to find the correct answer even if they don't know how to solve the problem directly. For students who struggle with making careless mistakes, I teach them effective techniques they can use to minimize these costly mista [more]

I've coached MATHCOUNTS teams in the past, and I found that a lot of the problem solving skills needed for these competitions make it easy to do well on the math portions of the SAT and ACT. In addition, as part of my job as a researcher, I have had to teach undergraduate students the basics of working in a lab, as well as the underlying science background and concepts needed to understand the ongoing projects in the lab. Over the years, I've learned the best when my teachers encouraged me... [more]
