I will teach students the approaches they need in order to master the English and Reading portions of the ACT exams.

After serious study and practice, I was able to score a 36 in English and 35 in Reading on my own ACT test. I am now able to distill the techniques I learned and employed for others, tailoring them to suit their own individual needs.

I have several years of experience tutoring with a focus on reading and writing. Further details can be worked out via messaging.

About Mark

I studied music and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a city with a thriving music scene. Shortly thereafter, I left for another city with a thriving music scene: Chicago. I play primarily within jazz and improvised music contexts, but have also perfor

I stress understanding (geometrically/analytically) rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn test taking skills whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 8 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

With an experience of 5 years, I make Math fun, which makes it easy for the student. I have studied myself Math from different angles and I know exactly what to teach, and what to not so they do not get confuse. I make the student believe that he is able to do it himself and by pushing him a little forward, they are able to excel in concepts and are able to understand and do things they found impossible to do before. Teaching is all I want to do and I do it with passion.

"Mr Guy is a super talented and passionate teacher, he will never give up on the student until success, by success I mean 95s and above. History can be a hard class as there is a lot of timelines and events that have happened, especially world history. After having him as a teacher I have never stopped thinking about the timelines and the events, and the best part of Guy as a teacher, he will make sure that you understand both sides of the story, such as from an American side, and German side. This opens my mind up to an international viewpoint, and I have been able to have conversations with historians about for example WW2 and I have managed to surprise them with my knowledge, only because of Mr Guy.
Never have I ever met such a passionate teacher in my entire life, and I would even want him to private tutor me if I was still taking History."

"My son just graduated VH High school with high gpa score. He is accepted to a University of his choice in Honors college. We are very happy with the academic scholarships he has received.
I can't thank Julia enough for the help and guidance she provided for Brian. He was struggling until grade 7 or 8, but after getting additional help from Julia he was able to cruise later on his own.
I would highly recommended her if anybody is considering tutor for they child."
