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]

My experience as an ACT teacher and tutor has shown me what concepts and skills you need to get your best score, including for the Math section. I give an assessment, identify gaps, and reteach those concepts. Most students increase their score 4+ points! Want to improve your SAT math score by 100+ points? Your ACT Math score by 4+ points? My goal is to make you successful and I invest in you so we reach your goals together. My experience over the years in a private school and in 1:1 tutoring has shown me the simplest ways to break down concepts so they make sense to you. This results in inc [more]

I have over 10 years of experience tutoring various subjects and have worked at least five years preparing students for the Math portion of various entrance exams, ranging from SAT and ACT to GRE and ISEE. Instead of simply teaching students how to "trick" the test, I teach the concepts that are integral to a good score and success once admitted into the intended program of study. I find myself teaching concepts like equations of circles, Trigonometry, matrices, word problem recognition, and many others! [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]

At Sylvan Learning Center, I tutor high school students weekly to prepare for the ACT. There are several different subjects involved in the math portion of the exam. The content breakdown for ACT math is Pre-Algebra (20-25%), Elementary Algebra (15-20%), Intermediate Algebra (15-20%), Coordinate Geometry (15-20%), Plane Geometry (20-25%), and Trigonometry (5-10%), each of which I have mastered while obtaining my degree in mathematics. My name is Katrina and I received my mathematics degree from the University of North Texas in May 2015. While at the university, I took classes that allowed me t [more]

I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a minor in Psychology when I was 18. I went on to obtain a Master's in Biomedical science at the same university, finishing just after turning 20. I am currently in the process of applying to medical schools, since I recently took the MCAT and obtained a score in the 99th percentile. Because of this, I would like to pass on my study strategies to other students, as well as provide the help and motivation need... [more]

I am experienced in ACT test prep. I have 15 years of experience in Math tutoring. My passion is mathematics; I love solving problems.I worked as an AVID tutor in Plano ISD. I got my BS degree from UT Dallas and completed Education course work at UNT. So far all my students have made straight A's. They got selected in gifted programs and AP classes. I am very fluent with mental math and encourage students to use their brains rather than the calculator. I am very flexible with tutor time and am available weekday mornings, even... [more]

I majored in engineering and minored in math. My career was in telecom/computers with extensive mathematical analytics. I tutor almost any college and high school math course. I get a thrill in watching the light turn on students' heads when they see how easy math can be once it's explained properly to them. I hear "My child has this or that learning problem..." but I've not met one yet that can't improve. I instill a lot of CONFIDENCE IN MATH in them. I've always tutored my 2 daughters... [more]
