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.

Fernando was fantastic with my 14 year old son. He asked what type of music he wanted to play to keep him engaged. He had a great 45 minute lesson with him. Fernando is passionate about violin and it shows. Looking forward to continuing with Fernando! Highly recommend him!

My daughter was doing well but short of excelling in math. I sent her to Julia for that extra push and confidence that she needed. She really helped her have confidence and made her thorough with her concepts. She been doing really great ever since!

Julia is a highly knowledgeable, professional and personable teacher. My son has been tutored by her since the age of 4 and is now 13. His MAP and PARCC scores are off the charts and he just received his placements for Stevenson High School with the recommendations for the highest math classes offered to incoming freshmen. Julia taught him to love and be passionate about mathematics. Her primary goal is to make sure that the students learn in a stress-free environment and with that strategy she is able to accomplish brilliant results. I recommend Julia highly. She is very approachable and patient, loves children and loves what she does.

He was very patent despite the fact that I did not know very much going into his tutoring sessions. When I got out of his tutoring sessions I knew much more and felt more confident in my abilities. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for help in precalclus."
