Ivy Grad - Flexible, Friendly, Gets Results (10+ Years Experience)

I went to Princeton University and majored in molecular biology. I've been tutoring continuously since high school, both as a private tutor and as a volunteer, in subjects all across the board.

Experienced ACT/SAT tutor, Certified Teacher, Math and English

I truly enjoy helping students to master the Reading portion of the ACT test. These passages often seem very different, even obscure, to students - based upon what they are used to reading in high school. I help students to break the passages down into understandable parts, and how to approach the often subtle, and nuanced questions - where often two answers can both seem completely correct! I am a certified teacher with 16 years of teaching experience and nearly seven years of tutoring experience, specializing in preparing students for the ACT and SAT. I have a solid history of results with s [more]

As a result, I know what your professors will be looking for! The classes themselves have been philosophy, literature, and writing courses, which all involve critical reading and writing, so I have been teaching those skills as part of those classes for just as...
