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 may not respond to you otherwise. 2. Know that messages sent during holidays do not receive responses until the next business day. 3. Know that diagnostic exams are given to everyone at the regular hourly rate. No exceptions. 4. Submit serious inquiries only. Be ready to state and honor a definite start date. Be ready to see your program through 'til the end. 5. Understand that I don't take a fast food approach to... [more]

I am a highly successful high school physics and earth science teacher and tutor since 1996. I have been certified to teach physics and earth science/geosciences in three states including California. Courses that I have taught include Conceptual Physics, General Physics, Honors Physics, Advanced Placement Physics (both Calculus and non-Calculus based), Advanced Topics in Physics, Astronomy, Earth Science/Geoscience, Meteorology, Oceanography, Algebra Readiness, Algebra I, Algebra II and Pre...

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]

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]

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've had 20+ past SAT and ACT students. I've helped with test prep tutoring training at Compass education. I have a double major in Economics and Statistics, and a minor in Mathematics from UC Berkeley. I've had over 10 years' experience working with college students and very much enjoy working in the subjects I tutor. I've received and eventually provided extensive training and tutoring at UC Berkeley for the Athletic Study Center (located at the Caesar Chavez building) from 2008 until 2011. My perspective of education is complemented from being a workshop leader (discussion section instru [more]

WHAT SETS ME APART AS A TUTOR? 1. Content knowledge-- I am thoroughly familiar with the entire sequence of American school mathematics, from middle school math through calculus and differential equations. I also have a strong knowledge base in other areas, including social sciences, academic writing, and AP-level history and science. My academic and research background in math means that I know the WHY of each topic, not just the WHAT! 2. Direct experience-- I have years of experience tea... [more]

Hi! I am a passionate tutor with qualifications including: a UC Berkeley Law degree (J.D.), a 4.0 weighted undergrad GPA (Summa Cum Laude) from UCSB, an award from Xerox for innovation in information technology, several merit-based scholarships, guest lecturing experience at the college level, and access to over a hundred books on education and tutoring. My relevant experience includes working with a wide variety of students. I've helped students with learning disabilities, gifted students... [more]
