UCLA Grad Accepting Serious Test Prep Students for ACT & SAT

I have been teaching ACT reading and other standardized reading tests for over ten years, both as a self-employed private tutor and for a highly regarded test prep company. I also have ten years of experience teaching reading and vocabulary at schools such as Shepherd University and Language Systems, International. However, the results I help my students achieve are what truly qualify me as an ACT reading tutor. As just one example, my most improved student on the December, 2015 ACT increased her ACT reading score 7 points (from 20 to 27) after two months of weekly online tutoring with me. [more]

Exceptional and Efficient Writing, AP Lang, ACT, SAT, and GRE Tutor

I am a speed-reader, and avidly devour books in my personal life. My approach to reading on the ACT teaches students how to digest as they go and retain information under time pressure, as I teach students study habits that will aid them when studying in college. Many students struggle with speed, but I have extensive experience identifying the cause of such issues and addressing them. Adaptable, I do not believe a one-size-fits-all approach works when it comes to test prep, and I strive to meet the needs and learning styles of each individual student. [more]

Attentive and experienced tutor focused on personalized education

I earned a perfect score of 36 on the ACT, and since then I've spent years helping students maximize their Reading scores. I can help interpret dense passages, discuss themes and literary devices, and teach strategies to answer test questions efficiently. I have been teaching students from elementary school through adulthood since I was twelve years old. My mother, a teacher herself, showed me that students learn best when they are active participants in every stage of the learning process. Thus, I focus on understanding each student's educational background and learning style, so as to break [more]

Harvey Mudd/Cornell grad; multi-subject, empathetic tutor

I have tutored several students in ACT across all four subjects. My experience has been that students tend to find the English and Reading portions slightly easier than the corresponding sections on the SAT. However, despite its name, the science section tests quick reasoning and data interpretation, not scientific knowledge per se. Most students, even those with a strong science background, experience the most time pressure on that subject. I've also advised students and parents regarding the different approaches schools take with regard to accepting scores. Many schools superscore the SAT, [more]

Mastery of the English Language is Key to All Great Success

Passion and enthusiasm are essential to learning. No matter how smart you are--and especially if you're smarter than most--unless a teacher can explain a subject in a way that you can fully understand and assimilate, you may learn that subject but you will never master it. The teachers from whom I learned the most had the ability to explain a complicated subject in terms I could understand; in other words, they tailored their teaching to individual needs. Unfortunately, our educational system... [more]

Patient, effective tutor for your most difficult subject

I am certified in ACT English, Math, Reading and Science as well as in SAT reading, writing and math. I am also certified in GMAT, GRE, MCAT, and LSAT. I have scored above the 95th percentile on every standardized test I have taken. I know the subject matter, but more important, I know what to do to get the highest score possible on these tests, and I can quickly teach these tips and techniques to you. I cherish every student, but I don?t necessarily want to build a long-term relationship with them. At the cost of tutoring, that is not a good deal for everyone. I will quickly fill in th [more]
