Jonathan’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
I took the ACTs twice and the section I had my best success in was in math. I also took courses like algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and trigonometry in high school; so I have good understanding of the material that will be on the ACTs.
I took Algebra 1 freshman year of high school. It was one of my favorite courses. In Algebra one, you solve for the variable in the equation. For example 80= 5x +20, where x would equal 12.
I took algebra 2 in my junior year of high school. Algebra 2 is more advanced than algebra 1, but the problems are still about solving for the missing variable.
I took biology junior year of high school. Biology is a science based on memorization, when I took biology I had to read and re-read the text book.
I am currently a junior majoring in Chemical Engineering at UMass Lowell. I took a few main courses like Energy Balances and Intro to Thermodynamics, Material Balances, and Fundamentals of Electricity.
I took economics my senior year of high school and as a freshman in college. In economics, you learn how the business works. The main things you need to know are profit and efficiency.
I took geometry in my sophomore year of high school. In geometry, you need to know how to solve the area, angle, and length of given the shape.
I took physical science in middle school and a little bit in high school. Physical science has a little of every science combined in one. I also use to be tutor students in physics, chemistry and biology in Lowell High School two years ago.
I have taken physics in both freshman year of high school and college. Physics is the science that is based on mathematics and a little memorization. You have to know certain laws like Newton's law for example. Also you need to know the formulas so that you can be able to solve problems.
I took prealgebra in eighth grade. Prealgebra is just learning the basics before getting into algebra. For example, 20= 10-5 + x.
I have taken precalculus a little in high school and calculus I freshman year of college. In precalculus, you solve problems by using derivatives.
I have taken the SAT twice. Mathematics was the section I scored the highest out of the three. Even though every SAT is different, the material is still the same. The mathematics section has algebra and geometry. I will help the students by teaching how to solve the problem and also by process of elimination (since SAT are all multiple choice).
I have taken Trigonometry in my senior year of high school. In trigonometry you need to know how to interpret graph and finding the limits on the graphs.
