Howdy, I'm Bobby! I would love the opportunity to make a difference in your student's life through the ACT. I love what I do, and I am blessed to be very good at it.

I am the only full time ACT prep tutor in Knoxville. I love what I do, and I happen to be really good at it. I have been tutoring it for 3 1/2 years now, and I consistently get better results than any other program in town.

I then provide accountability to the students by having them email me their goals every day so I can keep up with their progress. I also meet with them once a week to to teach them a different skill to focus on for the week, and tutor them in any areas we find gaps. I was trained in tutoring by TRiO student support services - I was trained in motivation by the Southwestern Company - I have been working on a college campus for more than 8 years now.
I have been tutoring the SSAT and ISEE for the past year now. I have used the offical SSAT prep book, the Princeton Review prep book, and the Kaplan Prep book, as well as numerous websites. I have also memorized the 300 most common SSAT/ISEE words, and have created a system to teach them to my students. I would love the opportunity to help your student get into the private school of their choice!
I made an almost perfect 100 in my Linear Algebra class in college. I was then employed by my college to tutor this math class along with others. I now tutor full time as a professional tutor.
