Raising Grades, Scores, and Confidence in ACT/SAT, Math, and Science

My ACT/SAT students have earned over $1,000,000 in scholarships and they consistently score 26-36 (ACT), 1200+ (SAT) & improve 2 letter grades in class. My 2016-2017 students earned ACT scores from 24 to 34 (these students earned a 34, 33, 33, 33, 30, 29, 29, 28, 27, 26, 26, 26, and 24 respectively; a range of 74th to 99th percentile) and SAT scores of 1150, 1290, 1400, 1580, and 1580. While I always recommend at least 10 lessons, I've had dozens of students make huge gains (3 to 6 ACT points... [more]


Algebra 1

I've been teaching Algebra I and II, as well as many other math subjects, for my entire tutoring career. It's the first subject I started teaching over 7 years ago and is one of my most popular subjects. I'm confident in all areas of algebra and can help you or your student get the results you're looking for. Most of my students earn A's in their algebra classes.


Algebra 2

I've been teaching Algebra I and II, as well as many other math subjects, for my entire tutoring career.

I'm confident in all areas of algebra and can help you or your student get the results you're looking for. Most of my students earn A's in their algebra classes.


Biology

I love teaching Biology and helping students navigate this broad topic. I have my Biochemistry B.S. degree and have always found biology fascinating. Most of my students earn A's in their Biology class when they work with me for most of the semester. I've also helped several students in their last couple weeks of class recover to B's and C's from failing grades.


Calculus

Calculus is by far my favorite subject to teach. One of the main reasons is because it has a reputation for being difficult -- but it can be made so simple! I enjoy making Calculus easy for students and am excited at every opportunity I have to tutor Calculus. Most of my students earn A's in their Calculus class when they work with me for most of the semester. I've also helped several students in their last couple weeks of class recover to B's and C's from failing grades.


Chemistry

Chemistry was the first subject I taught professionally as a tutor. I peer-taught students at the university I attended in Chemistry I, II, and Analytical Chemistry for 4 semesters. My students had an average increase of 1.5 letter grades and had a final grade up to 2 letter grades higher than their peers. Most of my students earn A's in their Chemistry classes.


Vocabulary


Grammar


Geometry

I've been teaching Geometry, as well as many other math subjects, for my entire tutoring career. I started teaching math over 7 years ago and it's one of my most popular subjects. I'm confident in all areas of Geometry. Most of my students earn A's in class or recover significantly from low grades.


Physics

I enjoy helping students understand Physics so they can start to see its incredible beauty. I've helped the majority of my students earn A's and several students bring their failing grades up to B's and C's.


Prealgebra

I'm confident in all areas of Algebra and can help you or your student get the results you're looking for. Most of my students earn A's in class or recover from low grades.


Precalculus

Pre-Calculus is by far my favorite subject to teach. One of the main reasons is because it has a reputation for being difficult -- but it can be made so simple! It's a great feeling to be able to make Pre-Calculus easy for students when they were feeling like it was the most difficult subject they've ever experienced.


Trigonometry

I've been teaching Trigonometry, as well as many other math subjects, for my entire tutoring career. I'm confident in all areas of Trigonometry and can help you or your student get the results you're looking for. Most of my students earn A's in class or recover significantly from low grades.

SAT Math

My students have earned over $700,000 in scholarships with their hard work and preparing for the SAT/ACT with me. I've tutored dozens of students to SAT scores over 1400, and many more who have increased their scores 100 - 500 points to scores of 1200+. Most of my students earn 700 or higher on the SAT Math section. Math is my strongest tutoring area, but I also love to teach all of the content and strategies for the SAT Writing and Reading.


GRE

I have a huge amount of respect for students who are looking to earn an advanced degree, and I really invest myself into helping them achieve this goal. Getting a great GRE score the first time is important for them to get to the next step as soon as possible, and that's where I come in. Together, we'll focus our test prep on high yield areas to improve scores and work through small details toward the final leg of test prep for an extra score boost.

I also love to teach SAT Math content because a well-rounded approach to the test is important for maximizing test scores.

ACT Reading

My students have earned over $700,000 in scholarships with their hard work and preparing for the ACT/SAT with me. I've tutored dozens of students to ACT scores over 30, and many more who have increased their scores 3-8 points to scores of 26+. I offer students personalized strategies for ACT Reading because there is no one-size-fits-all strategy. Once we identify the right strategy for them, my students generally boost their test scores 5 points after a few weeks of practice and tutoring.


ACT English

My students have earned over $700,000 in scholarships with their hard work and preparing for the ACT/SAT with me. I've tutored dozens of students to ACT scores over 30, and many more who have increased their scores 3-8 points to scores of 26+. ACT English tends to be the easiest section to improve scores on, so I always look forward to working with students who need help on it because I can generally boost scores 5 or more points in a matter of weeks.


ACT Math

My students have earned over $700,000 in scholarships with their hard work and preparing for the ACT/SAT with me. I've tutored dozens of students to ACT scores over 30, and many more who have increased their scores 3-8 points to scores of 26+.

I've tutored dozens of students to ACT scores over 30, and many more who have increased their scores 3-8 points to scores of 26+. The ACT Science section can be approached in a less intimidating way for students who are uncomfortable with science. I emphasize this approach in the Science strategy that I teach to students. The best improvement I've seen with this approach is 5 points in a single tutoring session. Aside from that, most students improve 3 to 8 points in a few weeks to a few months of tutoring.


Elementary Math

I've been teaching Algebra and many other math subjects for my entire tutoring career. It's the first subject I started teaching over 5 years ago and is one of my most popular subjects. I'm confident in all areas of algebra and can help you or your student get the results you're looking for.
