I am one of very few tutors in the world who has received a perfect 36 on the ACT and a 2400 on the SAT. In addition to the fact that I sit for each official ACT and SAT exam (13 times a year). Unlike most classroom programs, I work with students so that they can learn the foundations of why and how the test is structured so that they can gain a deeper understanding of the test prep that will not only be helpful for test day, but also for college.

About Joyee

My primary career is as an educational consultant. I devote over fifty hours a week to help my students succeed in high school and college through academic coaching, test preparation services, and college admissions counseling. When not teaching, I spend my 'work time' on curriculum design, lesson planning, visiting colleges, networking with college admissions officers. In fact, I am a member of the two largest national organizations of college admissions counselors.

Great ACT Tutor!

Joyee is a great ACT tutor. He is patient, encouraging, and has deep insight into the type questions the current ACT tests include.

We engaged Joyee to help my daughter with her ACT - focusing on Science and Maths. Her initial diagnostic test results were decent - 33 out of 36. After two months of Joyee’s help, my daughter proceeded to take her ACT in September. She received the perfect score - 36 out of 36. We are very happy with her results and she couldn’t have gotten the perfect score in such short period of time had we not engaged Joyee.

Joyee: job well done!

This past summer, I was in search of a tutor to assist my brother with his preparation for the ACT. A number of conversations with local tutors proved fruitless, as they were either too expensive or had rigid schedules. After doing some research online, I came across Joyee’s profile on Wyzant. I was particularly impressed by his extensive background in ACT tutoring having worked for some well-regarded test preparation companies. In addition, his rates were extremely fair. I enlisted Joyee’s tutoring services via skype, and my experience was remarkable. In spite of the three hour time difference between the east coast and west coast, Joyee remained a consummate professional with regard to his scheduling and punctuality. Most importantly, he is fully invested in his students, demonstrating patience and understanding whilst pushing them to achieve their full potential. Prior to working with Joyee, my brother had an initial diagnostic score of 27. After six weeks of tutoring with Joyee my brother scored a 35 on the September 2015 ACT. I highly recommend Joyee, his tutoring services are the perfect complement for any motivated high school student seeking help with test preparation.

Joyee Lin of Thinque has been nothing short of amazing. Professional with results to show. My daughter started working with Joyee a couple of months ago. Within six lessons, my daughter's composite ACT score went from a 28 prior to working with Joyee to a 32. Amazingly, her science score went from a 25 to a 32.
Those numbers are the end result of Joyee's professional approach to teaching. During the lesson, Joyee utilizes a number of methods to present the material. It must be said that my daughter took his instruction seriously and worked hard on the material which was provided to her. The result was a good example of team work in which my daughter could receive, in addition to immediate instruction, quick review and understanding after working through the material.
Joyee makes it easy to work around a busy lifestyle as he schedules and responds to correspondence promptly. We can't offer him enough praise. Joyee is offering an amazing service and we were so glad to have been referred to him.

Studying is serious business. We will write essays. We will analyze passages. We will laugh in the face of all that is boring about standardized tests.

Ultimately, my paradigm as a teacher will be to make myself progressively unnecessary.

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 respectively), though I too had to work hard to get there, so I know what it's like when you're just starting out.

Over the years, I've worked with students suffering from ADD, autism, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, speech disorders, and depression; I personally grew up inured to social anxiety, so I can always empathize.

Some tutors will tell you that they know all the tricks and shortcuts. But really, there are no tricks. No shortcuts. Just hard work and sleepless nights and talking to yourself while brushing your teeth in the morning

trying to remember the quadratics formula.

*****************************************************

I have a decade of experience and a vast collection of study materials that I can share with you for free. I've had the privilege to help hundreds of students with everything from college applications and essays to Creative Writing and Calculus, not to mention the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, ASVAB, and AP and SAT II subject tests, like Literature, Statistics, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry as well.

I absolutely love writing, of course, so I can teach you how to write an action scene or listen to a poem.

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.

Simon has somehow inspired my granddaughter to work really hard to prepare for her SATs. She is finding studying fun again, but more importantly, she is once again more confident about her intelligence and her ability to learn. His style and quirky humor is a perfect match for my granddaughter.

I have been teaching the ACT subjects for a long time now and when you take classes with me we will start with a practice test to get an idea of where your needs are. From there we will begin working on the highest subject area needs and work from there to get everything ready for the exam.

About Matt

I went to Pensacola Catholic High and graduated in 2003. I then attended and Auburn University, where I became a Christian, and graduated in 2007. Once I finished, I went overseas to teach English and do missions. I taught in Thailand from 2003-2007 and then in China from 2012-2016. I have been teaching since that time and am back home now to get my Master's degree in TESOL. I enjoy teaching people and watching their confidence grow as they learn new skills and develop new abilities. My teaching style is relaxing but challenging; as much as possible, I encourage and motivate students to have a love of learning, not just of this subject but of learning in general.

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.

I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

I have tutored for more than 300 families in the Greater Atlanta area and overseas. My students generally see substantial improvement in their scores. Preparation works in a big way! I isolate the problem areas, and my students and I spend time working on the tough ones. We also - just as crucially - spend time making certain that we are acquiring as many points as we can on the easy and medium difficulty problems for the student. We engage in 1) developing test-taking strategies, 2) learning the level of difficulty of the test, 3) review all content and concepts, and 4) practice, practice, practice!

About Robert

I have tutored part-time and full-time for more than 10 years in the Atlanta area. I have taught students online from as far flung as Hong Kong. I tutor in-person and online. I meet my students either at their homes, at a Starbucks, or at a library. I have had great success in standardized test preparation and subject tutoring for core subjects such as language arts and math. I enjoy what I do, and I create a wonderful learning environment for my students. I am open to small group tutoring also - that is a great way to learn also. Please inquire so I can provide you with my website address where you can learn all about me and the services I provide and the successes I have had with students. I hope to have the opportunity to work with your child.

"We were given Matthews name from a friend that used him for her two sons ACT tests and were happy with the results. My daughter studied with him multiple
times at a mutual site preparing for her ACT test. He would not only explain why she missed a problem on a practice test but then teach her so she understood the concept. He was very diligent, professional and thorough in his tutoring. My daughter went up 4 points on her ACT! Couldn’t be happier and HIGHLY recommend Matthew."

"As you can see I’ve written a review for Matthew regarding my daughters success (her test was last year) so I’d like to write one for my son also. My son
was not driving at the time and Matthew agreed to drive to our home and teach him for an additional nominal fee. My son also took multiple tutoring sessions with Matthew and learned something new every time. He felt confident going into the test, confident in his ability to complete the exam and do well on it. Matthew takes his time with each individual and works with their specific needs. My children needed help in different areas of the ACT and Matthew was more than capable of helping them in those areas. My sons ACT score also went up 4 points after working with Matthew! I can’t say enough how professional, kind and thorough he is."

"Matt is a patient, creative and effective tutor for all subjects and all cities. In addition to teaching for public schools, he currently teaches 20+ priv
ate sessions each week, K-12th grade, as well as college students and business professionals. Matt teaches in person in Ohio, as well as online in all US time zones and abroad. He is available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University where he earned a Provost Scholarship. His tutoring specialties include test prep for the ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, HSPT, ISEE and ASTB, as well as math and English. I highly recommend Matt if you need a private tutor."
