I have tutored three of my children on TAKS exams since moving to Texas in 2007. Each of them received COMMENDED in two or more subjects. My focus is on the math portion of the exam, which is being replaced with the new STAAR exam. I have tutored hundreds of students in math, science, and engineering over the past 25 years. I worked in the BYU Math Lab to pay my way through college where I earned a Master of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a minor in mathematics. I have even published a book and software package used by several universities in numerical analysis an [more]

I have always made high scores on standardized tests, and teach test preparation for them, including question/problem decoding, question types and elimination by the Socratic method, as well as logical essay-question construction. My own children have received TAKS scores that are consistently in the Commended range, some of which demonstrate complete mastery through a perfect TAKS score. While growing up, and as an adult, I have worked with children and adults of many ability and disability levels. My parents adopted 14 special needs children with various disabilities, and as the oldest daug [more]

I have specifically worked in TAKS tutoring as an extension of my certified high school math teaching for the FWISD. Although my primary tutoring for the FWISD was in math and accounting, I also had to support the reading/writing testing program, particularly for my Language Center and Transition students. I have also tutored privately for TAKS math and ELA for the last several years. All tutored students ultimately passed the TAKS exams. I am a certified secondary math teacher (State of Texas) who also had a long, successful career in business administration with an emphasis on finance and ac [more]

I am a 26 year veteran teacher who has worked extensively in the core subjects with children who have difficulty learning and are considered at risk. My experience and degrees are in the areas of Learning Disabilities, Autism, and Reading. I have extensive expertise in the areas of reading, math and the process of learning, and the development of language acquisition. Since I grew up in a mathematical household (my father being on of the top 10 engineers in the country) I have developed the a... [more]

The intent of the TAKS exam is to test some but not of the subject content objectives. My content area is math. I would utilize some of the released math TAKS exams to determine specific content knowledge and to determine where more reinforcement is needed. The goal would be to determine how to tackle specific content type problems and to review specific TAKS testing techniques in order to improve the probability of success. I have been a math tutor for five years. I also worked as a middle school math teacher in a high needs school for one year. I believe in the UPS - check method of solv [more]

I started teaching 13 years ago and the TAKS test has been around almost as long. I assisted in conducting Saturday TAKS tutorial as well as after school tutorials during my first 7 years. During my next three years of teaching I initiated and conducted Saturday TAKS tutorials at another district. The past three years I have taught TAKS prep to students during pull-outs at a local high school. I have also tutored students privately to assist them in being successful on the TAKS test. I recently helped a senior that took the test this past October that previously had missed passing by two [more]

I have given the TAKS test for many years to high school students. I understand the objectives and structure of the test. I teach high school and enjoy students of that age. I also have experience with teaching students with learning differences and have worked with ESL students. I have more than 2 decades of experience (K-highschool)in the classroom and tutoring (general education and special ed). I enjoy teaching students of all ages (including college age). I believe that math should be meaningful and will help my students see how math connects to the real world. My focus is always on [more]

I have been a high school English teacher in the state of Texas for 17 years. I have successfully tutored TAKS students for the entirety of my time as a teacher in the state. I have had up to 100% of my students pass the TAKS test. All of these things make me highly qualified to tutor in this field. I am a Master teacher who has taught all levels of High school English. I specialize in working with reluctant learners, especially writers. In my 17 years as a teacher, I have never met a student who could not write. The majority of the time, a student's only problem is their own lack of confid [more]

I specialize in preparing students for the TAKS test. I utilize previous test questions and implement strategic techniques to ensure students' comprehension of the material. I focus on illustrating the certain "traps" and "pitfalls" that students can fall into. I do this so that students can recognize these incorrect answer and avoid them. I implement mock tests to try to simulate the environment and also deal with test issues such as anxiety or lack of confidence. I currently have a number of students that I am working with in their math course along with preparation for TAKS. [more]

During the last five years I have taught several hundred students, TAKS examination material. Dear Prospective Student and Parent: My goal before I retire is to obtain for my students >$30,000,000 dollars in scholarships. I am continuously looking for students in Engineering, Science, Mathematics, with a smaller number of selective students in Medicine for 7 year medical programs. I attended advanced institutes for 11 years of education and have collaborated with most of the major pharmaceutical companies on a variety of projects. I am looking for college students who would ... [more]
