If you are planning to attend a university after high school graduation, be aware that most, if not all universities, require a minimum score on the math portion of the ACT in order to enter into college algebra. If your ACT Math score doesn't meet the requirement, you will most likely have the option to take and pass an exam before entering into the regular college algebra course. If you are unable to pass this exam, you must first take an introductory or refresher course in math (pass/fail only, non-credit course) before you are allowed to enroll in college algebra. The same holds true for enrollment in basic English courses. For this reason, you will want to do as well as possible on these portions of the ACT to avoid having to pay for additional entry exams or lose valuable class time taking refresher courses.
Mastery of the information and skills presented in an Algebra I course is critical for students in general, but especially for those who are college-bound. Math classes are like stepping stones in that before a student can successfully complete a Trigonometry course, for example, the student must first possess a strong foundation and understanding of Algebra and Geometry. In the state of Louisiana, Algebra I is required (with a passing grade) in order to earn a high school diploma.
I have been a certified and registered substitute teacher for Bossier Parish which required me to pass an exam. I am currently a registered substitute teacher in Caddo Parish (my college credentials permit to substitute in any Caddo Parish school). I am a Psychology major at LSU in Shreveport and have completed courses in Child, Adolescent, and Lifespan Psychology. I have worked with ECE, elementary, and middle school students - through substitute teaching and private tutoring - since 2002.
Mastery of basic math skills is essential for progression throughout school from start to finish. Math classes work like building blocks: a student must have a firm grasp on the mathematical concepts in the current grade to be prepared to understand and master the math skills which will be presented in subsequent grades. It is critical that any difficulties in mathematics be addressed and corrected sooner, rather than later. The higher the grade level for a student with math difficulties, the more difficult it is to catch up and get on track with classmates at the current grade level.
On average, high school graduates have significantly higher annual incomes than non-graduates. Getting your GED can increase your earning potential and help prepare you to enter a community or technical college.
I have superior reading, writing, comprehension, and public speaking skills. I completed my minor in English at LSU in Shreveport with a 3.9 GPA. I have completed a Linguistics course and achieved excellence in public speaking and communications. Effective communication skills are essential; and strong writing skills begin with proper grammar.
As a former English Education major, I was exempt from the PRAXIS I exams because my ACT scores exceeded the minimum scores required for exemption. I currently tutor PRAXIS prep and have access to valuable preparation resources which are used during exam prep lessons. For students who need that extra individual guidance in preparation for these major exams, lessons from an experienced tutor will likely be much more beneficial to the student as opposed to using group preparation in classroom settings. Additionally, I have teaching experience and am certified in ACT Reading and Science, GRE, and SAT Math, Reading, and Writing. Furthermore, these exams contain very similar material to the material presented in the PRAXIS exams.
Psychology is simply the study of the human mind. Psychology appears in so many areas of our daily lives and is critical in understanding and appreciating how interaction occurs between individuals as well as larger populations. Psychology also influences so many simple things in society. I've been fascinated with Psychology since I was in the sixth grade and am completing my Psychology degree at LSU in Shreveport.
I spent about ten years in Advanced and Honor Choir - this experience enabled me to become a very articulate speaker. I completed a public speaking course at LSU in Shreveport, and earned an A in the course. I have, at the personal request of the Debate Coordinator at LSU in Shreveport, judged the regional debate tournament held at LSU in Shreveport for two consecutive years. Additionally, I have held offices in both the Biology and Writer's Clubs at LSU in Shreveport and have given many oral presentations for those organizations in addition to oral presentations given for 300 and 400 level English courses. Furthermore, I have performed in front of audiences consisting of 300 or more people on multiple occasions.
I spent ten years in advanced chorus working to perfect my vocal skills in articulation, diction, and pronunciation. I have a minor degree in English from LSU in Shreveport and have completed Linguistics and Public Speaking courses, earning a high A in those courses. Additionally, I have several years experience working with students to master reading and phonics, and have worked with students who have/had minor-to-moderate speech difficulties. My educational experiences in English and Literary coursework, as well as the skills mastered in honor and advanced chorus, have enabled me with the skills to pass on the skill and confidence needed to speak publicly with pride and confidence.
I have superior reading, writing, comprehension, and public speaking skills. I completed my minor in English at LSU in Shreveport with a 3.9 GPA. Both written and oral communication skills are essential. A strong and broad vocabulary is a critical component in all areas of communication and provides a sturdy foundation for improved standardized test scores.
