Hello students! My name is Marion; I am a retired certified public accountant and an experienced tutor. I can help you be successful in your SAT test preparation, Math, English, and Accounting subjects, or in your general study skills. I am fun and friendly, and I especially enjoy working with young people. I take your future success very seriously. I graduated summa cum laude from Boston University and Northeastern University. I look forward to meeting you!... [more]

I have tutored students individually and taught classes to prepare them for college entrance exams, such as ACT, for over 15 years. I truly enjoy and have been fortunate to have helped each student gain confidence in taking the ACT, improve their math section and composite scores, get into the school of their choice and meet their goals. I have tutored students at all levels and all abilities, from struggling to gifted, as well as those with special needs. I have worked with students accepted to MIT, Wellesley, UC Berkeley, BC, BU, Northeastern, UMass and UNH, to name a few. [more]

I have tutored both the ACT and the SAT multiple times. In January, Wyzant named its "Top 250 Tutors in 2015" and I am very proud to be on that list! It was such an honor to be recognized! The following vignette tells you almost everything you need to know about me and my methods and my success rate - While helping a student with calculus, she spontaneously exclaimed, "This is the most fun I've had in math all year!" This was coming from an average student whose goal was "don't fail math." But after working with her for a few months, she got an ... [more]

I have been tutoring for the past three years, and I have helped a number of students with all 5 sections of the ACT (English, Reading, Math, Science, and Writing). I have strong standardized test scores in math, so I am able to help students review basic skills and develop test-taking strategies. I enjoy helping students learn to tackle challenging problems and refine their math skills. I am particularly good at explaining problems in different ways to help students better understand abstract concepts. [more]

I am an experienced tutor in math, chemistry, and physics currently working for the Newton Public Schools. I am currently licensed to teach mathematics at the high school and middle school levels, and expect to obtain my certification to teach chemistry later this year. In addition to my experience teaching at the high school level, I also have prior experience teaching at the college level - first as a TA in graduate school in Colorado and later as a TA at Harvard. In both cases I taught cla... [more]

For ACT Math, I review with students the concepts they need to know for the test. We also discuss how to approach questions that they don't know how to do, using "backwards" strategies, learning how to make good estimations and eliminating answer choices. I am a Dartmouth College grad and current MBA student with 16 years of professional tutoring experience and outstanding student results. I've helped coach students to 300+ point improvements on the SAT, 5+ point improvements on the ACT and 25%+ improvements on the SSAT and ISEE. I have particular expertise with standardized tests such as the [more]

Unlike the SAT Mathematics section, the ACT Math section covers a larger amount of content but does not require the level of sophisticated problem-solving that the SAT math does. The ACT Math covers a student's knowledge of the following topics in the following percentages: 23% pre-algebra (basic arithmetic calculations, exponents, fractions/ratios/proportions, very basic probability and statistics), 17% elementary algebra (such as algebraic equation solution through substitution, square roots and exponents, solution of quadratic equations through factoring), 15% intermediate algebra (quadrat [more]

As a former SAT Math instructor for the Princeton Review, I have been tutoring for standardized tests since 2010. I focus my ACT math instruction on a two tier approach: content and strategy. Students will typically have already learned the content they need to know for the ACT by the time they take the test, but they may be out of practice, and may have even forgotten some of the topics. In addition, the ACT math section is designed to be tricky, so students may have never been exposed to the types of questions or the specific ways the questions are asked. For this reason, I review the academ [more]

As a math education specialist, I work well with many different types of students from middle school through adult. I also bring an energy and love of my subject that helps students connect with their work. My creativity and an ability to connect math to real world applications, and dedication to my students are some of the things that set me apart as a teacher. I have my masters plus extensive additional coursework. With over 15 years experience teaching math, and science I am well verse... [more]

I have a BA in Mathematics. I have been specifically trained by tutoring specialists to tutor the ACT, and I have seven semesters of teaching experience at the undergraduate college level. I offer science and math teaching for under-challenged, over-challenged, home schooled, twice-exceptional, interrupted, and other non-traditional learners. I have ten years of experience as a teacher, and have been a dedicated private tutor since 2013. I've worked with many wonderful students who are constantly teaching me that there's a different "best teaching strategy" for every learner. The modern cla [more]
