For over two years, I've been helping students achieve the scores they need to get into their dream schools. Test prep can be stressful for students and families, so I always bring patience and enthusiasm to each session, as well as the proven techniques that I've used to help dozens of students significantly improve their performance. I carry a engineering physics degree and masters in materials science. Striving for an top-notch test score, or mastering math and physics classes, can be daunting and frustrating. Sometimes a teacher doesn?t explain the material well, or abstract concepts don?t [more]

Every time I open a scientific journal, I have the same feeling you probably get with ACT Science: "What am I supposed to do with all these charts and tables? How am I supposed to get through this article in a reasonable amount of time?" The fact that an M.S. from Stanford feels this way should encourage you. ACT Science passages are taken from cutting-edge research that even tenured professors have to work to understand. Everyone feels challenged, even students who get perfect scores. Small improvements in speed will eventually put you in front of the crowd and within reach of the scores you [more]

Many students are intimidated by the Science section of the ACT either because there is no equivalent on the SAT (or PSAT) or because science is not their best subject. However, the Science section is more about reading--in particular, reading charts, tables, graphs, and figures. I have developed a strategy that allows students to understand and analyze these "images" quickly, allowing them to finish the section in the limited time allowed. 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, Engl [more]

I have 15 years of experience with tutoring, teaching, and training. As a result, I am comfortable interacting with many audiences (including students from primary to university levels, parents, teachers and professors, and candidates for public office) on many subjects (such as math, critical reading, essay composition, data analysis, public policy, and political economy). I worked for several years as a standardized test and academic subject instructor in private, small group, and classro... [more]

I have been preparing students for the Mathematics and Science Tests of the ACT exam since 2003. I am very experienced and knowledgeable about these tests, having helped many students get their highest scores on them. I will teach you specific strategies that are very useful for the Science Test. These include proper pacing, how to read the information in graphs, diagrams, and tables, identifying the trends in the data, and specific strategies for each of the three types of passages found on the Science Test. There are other strategies that are applicable to you individually - I will help you [more]
