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]

As a professional ACT tutor, I focus on the moment-by-moment experience my students have while doing each specific type of problem this test offers. By noticing where they get in their own way, my students develop their own techniques and learn how to teach themselves. I fully expect you to discover, for example, that within the Math section, you need to write out every step! I serve merely as a guide for this self-discovery and have seen phenomenal results with this approach.

Hi, I'm Alex! I majored in math at the University of Chicago, and recently obtained my PhD in pure math from UC Berkeley. Learning and teaching math have always been huge passions of mine- I love when I can get a student to engage with and explore an interesting math problem. I have experience working with students from 6th grade to seniors in college. I have tutored algebra 1 and geometry, and have TA'd for upper level math courses including calculus and linear algebra. I've also led sess... [more]

In 2010 I received a composite ACT score of 34 out of 36. My ACT Math score was 35. I have first-hand knowledge of ACT preparation and practice testing, as I studied for six months to prepare for the ACT. Math is a subject very dear to me. As an engineering major, I have used math as a tool to solve complex engineering problems that apply to every day life. In my current technical operations job I am counted on to make accurate calculations on a daily basis. Math is an important topic that applies to multiple facets of life, and my aim in tutoring ACT Math is to better prepare students for l [more]

Content of ACT is taken from students' high school math classes with problems that are more sophisticated than those in the textbooks. The key to scoring high on ACT is to have a thorough understanding of the math courses and apply students' knowledge to ACT. Quick reviews, prior to the test, can refresh students' memory on formulas needed for the test. Having strategies to approach test items, and knowing the format of the test are also helpful to the mastery of this test. I am a graduate of the University of Miami, Florida, achieving a B.S. and a M.S. degree, majoring in math. I have been tu [more]

ACT Math is a race against time. Students often tell me that they could do almost every problem on the test if the time limit didn't exist. Paradoxically, the time crunch can work in your favor. Almost everyone feels rushed, so ACT Math often has a lenient grading scale. If you increase your speed a little bit, your score will go up dramatically. Because the ACT is a standardized test, it has to use the same kinds of tricky questions over and over. After some practice, the test will seem more familiar, and you'll be able to work faster. Every ACT Math question is multiple-choice, and you ca [more]

I have a PhD in chemical engineering. I have 3 years experience tutoring students in college and currently am teaching Math in college. Mathematics is a language. I know this language pretty good and having a PhD in engineering major makes me excellent at all subjects in math. Chemical engineering is my major and I have been in engineering school studying it for 12 years. So, I would say I am an experienced chemical engineer with extensive knowledge mainly in Thermodynamics, Fluid mechanics ... [more]

I have helped students pass courses and standardized tests for the past 10 years, tutoring suburban private middle school students, urban public high school students, Ivy League college students, and everyone in between. I have been teaching middle and high school math and science full-time for 9 years, and before grad school, I taught in Bolivia as a Peace Corps Volunteer. If you are concerned about passing a test or a course in any of the following subjects, or would just like some extra ... [more]
