My minor from Texas A&M University (1991, Cum Laude) is in Accounting. I love working with numbers! As Valedictorian of my high school class, I excelled in math, receiving A's in every math class through Calculus. I have tutored in ACT Math, as well as arithmetic through Algebra 1, and I have helped students with strategies to score more points. You might point out to me that the ACT has lots of Geometry, but that's OK, because, though I detest proofs, I love working with angles and triangles and other shapes to solve problems. Since the ACT Math section requires solving 60 problems in 60 m [more]

The Math section of the ACT Exam is extremely complex, as it involves material from multiple different math subject areas. I focus my ACT Math lessons on two things: 1) completing the problems on the page and ensuring an understanding of necessary steps to complete for each type of problem. 2) rebuilding essential fundamental skills that make up the problems, ensuring students have all necessary skill sets to execute more complicated problems Developing fundamental and advanced skill sets for execution of the ACT leads to improved test scores, as well as a more comprehensive understanding [more]

Outside of math, I also have strong analytic essay writing skills and can help with grammar, thesis statements, and organization of ideas in essays. These same analytical skills also translate to excellent standardized test prep - ... [more]

My own experience with being a math student is that math teachers focus too much on the subject matter and are satisfied if their presentations are logical, clear, and complete. Trouble is, even a "perfect" presentation is wasted if the student isn't ready for it. I start from the student. What do you already know? What do you bring to the table? My lessons aren't jewels of pure reason floating somewhere off in the sky; they are new branches growing on the tree of your existing comprehen... [more]

Dear prospective student, Solving the problems is just half of the objective of a tutoring session.

If you have problems in Biology, General Chemistry, General Physics, Algebra, Precalculus, Calculus I and II, I could be a resource for you. G... [more]
