Each person I have tutored has improved reading skill up to his or her class level. Building confidence and a love of reading is my focus.
I have tutored students who are prepping for the TEAS. My focus is on the math, English, and reading sections. I have a TEAS prep book to use during tutoring sessions.
I have experience tutoring many students for the ACT math section. I myself scored the highest ACT score anyone in my high school had ever achieved. I love helping people understand math.
