Experienced teacher supports student success in skill building

I am a certified high school English teacher, who has taught both literature/composition classes and reading courses. I take a systematic approach to the ACT Reading test, focusing on the organization and development of passages, the role of signal language, and contextual clues to vocabulary. We work together, so the student masters identifying detail that answers the question, pulls information together to draw inferences and steps back to see the overarching idea presented in the passage. My experience has been that students quickly improve their scores on practice tests as they become more [more]

Certified Tutor in Most Subjects:SAT/ACT/GRE/SSAT/ISEE Test Prep, Math

Most students, no matter how bright, approach the ACT Reading Section with fear and trepidation. The reading section of the ACT is a heavily vocabulary-driven test, so I work with students to improve their vocabulary. I also provide students with strategies they can use to identify the best answer to every question. I show them how to approach the questions so that the correct answers are virtually as quantifiable as the correct answers to math questions are. The correct answer to the passage-based reading questions are not subject to individual interpretation. With the right approach, s [more]

Need better grades? Ellen - Certified: Math, English, Test prep.

I have tutored students individually and taught classes to prepare them for college entrance exams, such as ACT, for over 15 years. I truly enjoy and have been fortunate to have helped each student gain confidence in taking the ACT, improve their reading section and composite scores, get into the school of their choice and meet their goals. I have tutored students at all levels and all abilities, from struggling to gifted, as well as those with special needs. I have worked with students accepted to MIT, Wellesley, UC Berkeley, BC, BU, Northeastern, UMass and UNH, to name a few. [more]

Harvard 2X Test Expert: Top Scores on LSAT, SAT, ACT, GMAT, and GRE

ACT Reading calls for making judgments about what authors are trying to accomplish and what their words mean. You'll focus more on the big picture than the little one, a quality that can frustrate some people who like to make fine distinctions. Work with me, and you'll know just how to characterize these reading questions. One of my recent students earned a 34 on this part of the ACT. Many students find it hard to read and answer the questions in the time allowed. I have helped several students to increase their speed in reading and accurately answering questions by more than 100 percent. Even [more]

Science and Math for the Non-Traditional Student

I offer science and math teaching for under-challenged, over-challenged, home schooled, twice-exceptional, interrupted, and other non-traditional learners. I have ten years of experience as a teacher, and have been a dedicated private tutor since 2013. I've worked with many wonderful students who are constantly teaching me that there's a different "best teaching strategy" for every learner. The modern classroom doesn't serve the needs of all students. Too many students believe that they ar... [more]

Ivy League test prep tutor - SAT/ACT/GRE/SSAT/ISEE

ACT Reading is typically the section that students have the most difficulty with time-wise. I teach students a fast and efficient way to read passages and stay on track. I then teach them a method to attack the questions that is faster and more accurate than the way most students typically approach reading questions. I also frequently time students to make sure they are able to complete the section in the required amount of time. I am a Dartmouth College grad and current MBA student with 16 years of professional tutoring experience and outstanding student results. I've helped coach students to [more]
