Experienced Educator Specializing in Test Prep and Enrichment

I have had much success increasing a student's ACT reading score considerably. I teach students proven reading comprehension strategies and techniques that can be used for the rest of their lives (not only for the ACT). I strive to help my students engage analytically and critically when reading a passage. It takes a high level of focus when reading a dense, complex passage but I guide my students through it. Ultimately, my students improve their reading comprehension through hard work and guidance. [more]

I scored a 36 on the ACT Reading Test by learning how to anticipate what the test maker would ask about each passage. I help students learn how to read actively, and provide concrete strategies for correctly identifying the main ideas and key details that are likely to come up in the questions. Active reading is essential to doing well, and the good news is anyone can learn how to be an active reader! If you're looking for expert instruction from a tutor who genuinely cares, I'm your guy. I scored in the 99th percentile on all the tests I teach, and, perhaps more importantly, I have many years [more]

I can not only teach strategies to help you move quickly through the test, but I can teach the concepts this part of the test is based on. The questions include identifying the main idea, drawing conclusions, making inferences, understanding the logic of organization, or explaining words from the context. I can significantly improve your comprehension and vocabulary. I am a professional writer of commentary and literary essays.

Yale grad focused on helping top students pursue top SAT/ACT scores.

It has taken me many years to develop some incredibly powerful teaching strategies on the ACT reading section. The ACT has a certain style, and a great reader, if unaware of that style, can still struggle on this test; at least 37 of the 40 questions can be answered simply by locating quotes throughout the passage that answer each of those particular questions. Scanning quickly through the passage requires some getting used to, but is incredibly easy to do once you're used to it (you don't have to be an amazing reader to do this... remember, you've been reading almost your whole life).
