I have a PhD in Biology and I have taught and tutored Sciences for 9 years. I have a PhD in Neuroscience and more than decade long scientific career in past, which yielded in publication of several papers in peer-reviewed journals. I started to tutor and teach for private schools as a science teacher 9 years ago. I like my students to succeed and be confident and happy. I tutor Algebra 1 Common Core and Geometry Common Core for Regents examinations of state of NY on a regular basis. My students have very good success rate at these exams. I am certified in an...

I am a math and science tutor with a high rate of success in improving my students' academic performance. I have a fresh, reliable approach to math and science education, based on identifying individual strengths and weaknesses and tailoring custom programs that make these concepts accessible. I have a degree in physics and I currently work as a control systems engineer. I have tutored high-school and undergraduate physics, chemistry, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, G... [more]

The ACT Science test evaluates scientific reasoning skills and comprehension. In graduate school (biology) I took a reading course individually with a professor, where you had to explain every diagram in a tall stack of scientific papers. Analyzing scientific information relies on understanding graphical representations of data, logic and critical thinking. I can explain the concepts clearly and help students spot key points and inconsistencies. I have 2 Master's degrees in Genetics, Molecular, Cell and Developmental biology, and did lab research for many years. [more]

I have been trained by a tutoring company in NYC to prepare students for the ACT. Interestingly enough, the science section on the ACT does not require any outside knowledge of science. It tests students' ability to read graphs, infer conclusions, evaluate experimental evidence, and apply the scientific method. There isn't a lot of time on these sections, so efficiency is the primary goal. I have access to a deep library of preparatory materials and prepare students using time-management techniques that have proven effective. [more]

When I took the ACT, I got a 35 out of 36 on the Science section (a 34 composite score). That score helped me get into Columbia University, where I majored in psychology. I have been tutoring for the ACT for the past five years and have helped my students achieve up to an 8 point increase in this section. The science section is the most difficult section because it's basically a reading comprehension test and not enough time to read everything! The secret to the science section is finding the pertinent information in the overwhelming chaos of the graphs and tables, and realizing that there are [more]

Ever since I was a little kid, I've always had a passion for learning. I graduated Magna cum Laude from the University of Maine with a degree in Chemical Engineering and a Mathematics minor. During that time, I was a private tutor and a TA in Chemistry. My areas of expertise are Algebra through Calculus II, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Physics, SAT Math, and ACT Math/Science. I am willing to either be a tutor for a current class or teach a new subject. I'm usually available between 8 AM... [more]

I'm a full-time high school science and math teacher and can help you or your child focus on test-taking strategies as well as solidifying understanding of the material itself. The science covered on the test relies less on memorization of terms and more on being able to think logically about the material presented in the questions themselves, so the key is to focus on habits of mind and speed when working through problems. I find nothing more rewarding than helping students to deeply understand how things work and to watch them grow more and more confident in their own abilities. I am a full- [more]

I'm exclusively an SAT/ACT tutor. I provide value to parents by consistently outperforming even the highest-priced tutors. I draw on both years of experience as a course instructor for a premier test prep company and my background in cognitive psychology to personalize my approach for each new student. I weave cutting-edge test-taking strategies into individualized lessons. With every student, I begin by carefully observing how the student naturally proceeds as a test-taker. I then tailor my...
