We will prepare for the ACT by studying the following subjects: Pre-Algebra, Elementary Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Plane Geometry, and Trigonometry. We will also cover matrices. In addition, we will put together a weekly study program to increase the score. I believe students should be confident in their math skills. By getting good grades in school, their options in life (e.g. jobs, career paths) are kept open. I gauge where the student is at in knowing the concepts by having him/her work out the problems. Every problem has two parts: the first is recognizing wh [more]

For the past seven years, I have been developing my craft as an educator with a wide range of students. After graduating from Yale University and receiving a Masters in Fine Art from the University of Chicago, I have had the privilege of working alongside very experienced teachers in New York and Philadelphia. From my start as an assistant elementary school teacher to my most recent position as the director of a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) program for middle and h... [more]

I have been tutoring both ACT and SAT Math for over 10 years. I have 20+ years as a math and science subject tutor and 10 years as an ACT/SAT math/science tutor. As a working engineer I use these math principles almost every day. I bring real world examples of just how practical these math skills can be and enjoy helping students enjoy learning math. I began tutoring by helping other students in my high school classes. In college, I worked as a private math and physics tutor starting with my own fraternity brothers and branching out. Subjects ranged... [more]

The ACT math, unlike the SAT, isn?t really that tricky - it?s just that it?s a lot more time pressured as you have to make it through 60 questions. In the 5 years that I?ve been tutoring for the ACT, I?ve determined that the key is to blow through the first 20 (which rarely feature tricks) so that you have time for those last 10 that get pretty sticky. We?ll hit all the details you need (remember Alternate Interior Angles from geometry? They?re about to make a cameo here!) while not wasting our time on things that don?t show up. We?ll learn the black arts of picking numbers (an incredibly usef [more]

I got a scholarship out of taking the ACT exam. I can help your student excel in the ACT as well as the SAT exam, and learn strategies to improve scores. I will be happy to help your student succeed! I have an undergraduate degree from CSU Fullerton in Mathematics and Statistics with a Finance Cognate. I helped run the Math tutoring lab for almost 5 years, and have been tutoring for longer than that, having worked for 3 different companies before I started my own business. Having tutored many students in mathematics, I have covered subjects including Algebra and Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calcul [more]

Hi folks! My name is Ryan. I'm a full-time tutor and former physicist/astronomer with an excellent background in math, science, economics, and English composition. I have considerable teaching and tutoring experience at high school and college undergraduate levels. My primary subjects are physics, math (from Algebra 1 to Calc II), English writing, and SAT/ACT test prep. I also do some chemistry and economics. Availability Update: I will be out of town until Aug. 10, and Aug. 18-20. I've re... [more]

My best performing ACT Math pupil scored a 35 (99th percentile) on the ACT Math. The ACT Math, unlike the SAT Math, is a curriculum-based examination, and, as such, appears to be very much like other mathematics examinations administered at school. In this context, the ACT Math is straightforward and familiar. Recently, I myself scored an ACT Composite score of a 32 (98th percentile) on a formal examination, which I can provide official documentation of upon request. My best performing ACT pupil scored a Composite score of 33 (99th percentile). And, my best improved ACT pupil increased his Com [more]

Unlike many other people who are here, I've not had a really long experience tutoring; however, one thing I know we all can relate with is the idea and existence of that one person that every single person in the class would unanimously go to rather than the teacher. I have been that person for a while, and I would love to be that person to you, and possibly make you that person in your class in as little time or as much time as you want. I love tutoring math and I have been doing that sin... [more]

I have a strong grasp of the math and sciences, with a major in biochemistry and a minor in psychology. Additionally, I have significant experience working with the Department of Chemistry at Washington University in St. Louis in teaching General Chemistry and Upper-level Biochemistry. With a strong foundation in the sciences as well as my own personal experience in taking the ACT?receiving an overall score of 35 (a 99th percentile score!)?I am well-equipped to help my students conquer math and science for the ACT.

I have worked with many students over the years to get them ready for ACT Math portion. In general, ACT Math is an easier test compared with SAT Math; it's being accepted by more colleges now and consequently has gained more popularity with the students and parents in the past few years. ACT Math is not as tricky as SAT Math, however, the questions are still being worded in ways that are very different from what you usually see in your high school math courses. With this understanding, I focus on "translating" the math problems into English for my students. Once you get comfortable with comp [more]
