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]

So, I would say I am an experienced chemical engineer with extensive knowledge mainly in Thermodynamics, Fluid mechanics ... [more]

For over two years, I've been helping students achieve the scores they need to get into their dream schools. Test prep can be stressful for students and families, so I always bring patience and enthusiasm to each session, as well as the proven techniques that I've used to help dozens of students significantly improve their performance. In 2015 and 2016 I worked with an elite California tutoring agency with a reputation for producing top marks in standardized tests. Striving for an top-notch test score, or mastering math and physics classes, can be daunting and frustrating. Sometimes a teacher [more]

I graduated with honors from UC Davis with double major in Psychology and Statistics and minor in Education. I earned a 3.97 GPA and received two outstanding performance awards for being one of the top students in each major. Additionally, I scored a 5 on the AP Literature test, AP Calculus AB test, and AP Psychology test, as well as an 800 on the SAT Math II test. On the Graduate Records Exam I scored in the 97th percentile on math, 92nd percentile on reading, and 93rd percentile on writing.... [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]

In 1985, I left one career and began another. I moved from a clerical career to a teaching career.
