I have helped students who needed to heavily review for the ACT math test, as well as students who only needed help with the hardest problems on the test. I scored a 36 on the ACT in high school and was on my high school math team. I will troubleshoot your child's problem areas, fill knowledge gaps, and teach problem solving skills. I have over 8 years of experience tutoring high school and college math and physics. I have tutored physics (including regular, honors and AP), prealgebra, algebra I, geometry, algebra II, precalculus, trigonometry, calculus, GRE math, ACT math, SAT math, math e [more]

I'm an expert in working with students to develop skills and to understand concepts. My expertise is especially strong in problem solving, and applying concepts to real world situations. I enjoy working with students. When my son was in college, we used to problem solve on the phone and via email. His classmates wanted him to "rent me out". I'm a 25-year veteran of Silicon Valley with multiple degrees in Engineering. I am currently an Adjunct Professor at the Golden Gate University Schoo... [more]

I have taken the ACT test numerous times and have done well on the ACT math section. Specifically, I have received a 34 a few times and have once received a 36 on the ACT Math section (I have test result records if you need proof). From my experience, you have to take a lot of practice tests and also time yourself during the test to gauge your results with real-time conditions. But I will also be able to help with finding easy tactics to find answers quickly by taking advantage of the multiple choice options. The key to succeeding this portion of the exam is to find answers quickly and recogni [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]

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]

My name is Laura N., I am a graduate student at UC Berkeley studying biochemistry. In addition to spending much of my time in the lab working on research, I have spent three semesters as a graduate student instructor for classes in biochemistry, biophysics, and organic chemistry. I discovered early on that teaching was something I really enjoyed. It started with swim lessons and a bit of math and science tutoring while in high school. I realized that inspiring students to work hard at a ne... [more]
