Perfect Scores: SAT 1600, ACT 36, GRE Quant 170, Chemistry/MathL2 800

I regularly see students get large, quick score gains on the Reading section. The passages are all eighth-grade level, unlike the SAT's historical-document passages, and the questions themselves are also easier. The problem with ACT Reading, as with the other sections of the ACT, is limited time. Fortunately, everyone else is struggling with the same problem, so if you practice to increase your speed and accuracy, your score will go up faster than you think. Obtaining background knowledge is another way to read faster. A passage about Louis Armstrong will be much easier to work with if you k [more]

Experienced tutor and PhD candidate tutors all verbal subjects

I am qualified to tutor ACT Reading because I have a strong background in English. I took AP English in High School, and several English courses in college (including analytic writing and composition). I have tutored Language Arts for about two years. I have TESOL certification, which included background in grammar and composition. I am moderately familiar with the ACT, and would study the test in more detail to become extremely familiar with it if I was to tutor it. I scored in the 90th percentile on both the SAT and GRE verbal sections. [more]

Academic Tutor Extraordinaire

The ACT Reading section is the hardest section on this test to tutor. However, with my many years of experience teaching this test (and getting outstanding results), I have developed many ACT-specific strategies that will help you improve your score. My goal is to teach my students *how* to learn so they no longer need to rely on me. In addition to three Clear California Teaching Credentials (Math, English, and Multiple Subject), I have many years of experience as a teacher. My primary love is language, but I consider that to include math. As Mrs. B., my high school algebra teacher said, "Ma [more]
