Enrichment? Homework? Prep-work? You're speaking my language!

Before starting with Wyzant, I managed a private learning center for three years, working with students of all ages in test prep; homework support; remedial work; and enrichment in math, English, reading, and writing. I take pride in explaining concepts clearly, providing relevant examples, and seeing my students light up when they finally get it! Having tutored ACT/SAT/GRE/ASVAB for years, I am familiar with all concepts for all subjects, and I know how to explain the necessary skills & st... [more]

ACT Science

For over three years I have been helping students improve their scores on the ACT science section. ACT science prep primarily involves...reading! The ACT science section does not test science knowledge; instead, it measures your ability to read scientific literature, connect the dots in a logical way, and apply the scientific method to the experiments presented in the passage.


Elementary Math

With twin boys in elementary school, I am familiar with the math taught at every elementary grade level (and I passed the Minnesota Teacher Licensing Exams for math with a perfect score on my very first attempt!). Since math is a cumulative subject, younger students will not progress simply by parroting algorithms; instead, new skills are facilitated only through deep understanding and mastery of prior skills. My approach is to teach the students so well that they can turn around and teach the newly learned skills to others.


MTLE

I passed the MTLE Basic Skills test with a perfect score of 300 in math, and near perfect scores of 295 and 294 in reading and writing, respectively.
