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 will 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 t... [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]

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.

I have taught all levels on the ACT other than Trigonometry. A student I tutored increased from a score of 21 to 29 on the math section of the ACT. I am well versed in all areas tested on the ACT and prepared to work with students of all levels, from those that need to work on the fundamentals of Algebra and Geometry to those going for top scores. I am an experienced math teacher and tutor with 4 years teaching experience (1 high school including Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II, and 3 middle school including Pre-Algebra and Algebra I) and 7 years tutoring math (grade 1 - 6, Pre-Algebra, Alg [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...

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]

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]

A friend once commented to me that my success as a tutor is due to the fact that I am, "a Renaissance man in the age of specialization." In other words, I can tutor most subjects K-12, I speak French and Portuguese fluently and have an intermediate Spanish level, and I am highly experienced with SSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and TOEFL prep, among many other standardized tests. My students have told me that I'm, "funny, smart, and cool," but more importantly, I have many years of experience helpi... [more]
