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.

Tammy C.
Great!! She does a great job with breaking down information to make it easier to understand and learn the content. She wants you to be successful in learning the material. If there is something you do not understand,she will go over it until you comprehend the information. Janalee is a true teacher because she is very patient and understanding when it comes to your learning style.
August 11, 2015
I must say Janalee is a phenomenal tutor. Her lesson plans are well structured and well thought out. Before studying under her tutelage , I was extremely nervous about taking my GRE. Not only did I pass my exam, I surpassed my own expectations.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

Simeon S.


Bgcheck Background Checked

In addition to the standard Algebra 2 and Precalculus curriculums, I tutor advanced topics, such as problem solving strategies for the American Mathematics Competition.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 re

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.

Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .

Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.
