Are you preparing to take the ACT? I'd love to help you. After you take a practice test with me, we'll identify what concepts need to be reviewed to prepare you for the big day. My only goal is for you to succeed! Concepts in Mathematics: Measurements – time, length, weight, volume, area Place Value Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division Order of Operations Decimals Fractions Equations Inequalities Properties – Commutative, Associative, Distributive, Identity Concepts in Algebra: Simplifying - Distributive, FOIL Exponents Polynomials Negatives Substitution Method Angles Graphs & Graphing Slope of a Line Factoring Square Roots and Radicals Probability & Statistics Geometry Word problems I’m also a devotee of grammar and proofreading skills. I have been hired be several published authors to proofread their novels prior to publications. So if you need assistance with improving your Writing Skills, I am available for this as well – two tutors for the “price” of one.

I have taught 30+ students in ACT Math, English/Reading/Writing and Science. Using my broad teaching expertise and coursework in mathematics (algebra, geometry, trigonometry) English (reading, writing, grammar) and Science (biology, chemistry, physics), I have helped prospective university students (juniors, seniors and even sophomores) get the scores they need to gain acceptance to their top school choices. Let me show you how successful you or your child can be. A recent success story from one of my students was an increase of 4 points on her ACT, for a composite of 30. That's 16 individual points within four subjects!

For over 12 years, I’ve tutored many high school students in ACT test prep. I use different techniques to approach each section so they can score high. The ACT Math section is similar to the SAT math section but with a visible focus on geometry and trigonometry concepts; it also has a more diversified mixture of advanced math problems and a tighter time limit. Out of all the ACT sections, I have worked the most on ACT Math. Students first go through a complete concept review based on their performance in practice material. Then we work on concept-specific practice questions to ensure that they avoid past mistakes and raise their scores. The ACT English section tests grammar usage, mechanics, and rhetoric. Students need to understand and recognize correct grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure to score well in this section. I have helped many students with ACT English, targeting concept knowledge and skill application as part of their test prep. They continue to study outside of lessons through a customized test prep routine. For the ACT Writing section, I coach how to write a strong, descriptive, and succinct essay response within the time limit. Since the ACT Reading section has four passages always set in four predetermined topic areas, I drill students through key question types and testing strategies to strengthen their reading comprehension, analytical skills, and time management. In addition to working through practice tests with me and on their own, they also complete practice homework outside of lessons. Students who committed to their study plans always raised their scores and felt confident about this section. I always emphasize ACT Science does not require extensive scientific knowledge or skills. It tests high school students' analytical skills, ability to correctly interpret graphs and data, and form conclusions. I help them maximize their reading comprehension skills to glean necessary information and “translate” it into simple instructions that help them find the right answer to a question in less than a minute. Since the ACT Science time limit is the most formidable in the entire test, I also walk students through practice tests to confront any mistakes immediately and correct them so they can learn from the process and be better prepared.
