Harvey Mudd Grad Coaches Mindful Learning in All Subjects

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 in the Reading section, you need to nail down the Main Idea of the passage. I serve merely as a guide for this self-discovery and have seen phenomenal results with this approach. Kathryn is a professional private tutor who spends her life helping students understand tough concept [more]

Patient Math/Language Tutor with Engineering Background

In 2010 I received a composite ACT score of 34 out of 36. My ACT Reading score was 33. I have first-hand knowledge of ACT preparation and practice testing, as I studied for six months to prepare for the ACT. Tutoring sessions would involve test-taking practice, practice ACT tests and evaluation, and general knowledge practice. Depending on the first day of tutoring and the day of ACT testing, a modified tutoring schedule will be adapted to fit the student's needs. I am a process engineer in the biotech industry with degrees in Mandarin Chinese and chemical engineering. I thoroughly enjoy imp [more]

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]
