Simeon’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
The ACT English section will test your ability to write, to read, and to detect subtle errors in various passages. You will need to master both common writing conventions (such as proper use of the comma and semicolon, etc.) and more advanced grammatical concepts (who vs whom, irregular past participles, etc.)
The ACT reading section is very similar to that of the SAT, with the exception that it doesn't rely as heavily on vocab, and that its time constraints are much stiffer.
I have all the necessary study materials, including half a dozen actual ACT tests, so you will not need to purchase extra books.
The ACT science section covers basic chemistry, physics, and biology. Although technically, you don't actually need to know much about these subjects to be successful on the test.
Every clue you need to solve a problem is provided in the question, and some clever sleuthing is often all you need to get the answer.
An introduction to algebra includes topics such as linear equations, ratios, quadratic equations, special factorizations, complex numbers, graphing linear and quadratic equations, linear and quadratic inequalities, functions, polynomials, exponents and logarithms, absolute value, sequences and series, and more!
In addition to the standard Algebra 2 and Precalculus curriculums, I tutor advanced topics, such as problem solving strategies for success on the AMC and AIME competitions.
My favorite subject. I've personally read over 1300 books and written more essays than I care to remember.
I tutor geometry topics such as quadrilaterals, polygons, circles, funky areas, powers of a point, three-dimensional geometry, transformations, introductory trigonometry, etc.
The dreaded GMAT. I've scored nearly perfect on this test, which is significantly tougher than the SAT.
Grammar is the math of words; the rules that underlie every conversation; the underpinnings of language itself.
My favorite standardized test. I think it's quite fun, actually! Logic, reasoning, and instinct go into solving every problem.
The MCAT is by far the toughest standardized test you'll ever take. Over the years, I've accumulated a vast collection of study materials, including the complete ExamCrackers guides, and over 20 complete MCAT (including 7 previously administered tests), which I am happy to share.
I think taking the MCAT can actually be quite fun.
The SAT Reading section is deceptively straightforward, yet subtle. There are tropes of questions that appear again and again, which can be mastered with basic reading and comprehension strategies.
I have all the study materials you would ever need, including half a dozen actual, previously administered SAT tests, so you shouldn't need to purchase extra books.
The SAT Reading section is something of a specialty of mine. I've consistently scored 800 taking the test, often without a single error.
The SAT Writing section will test your ability to read, write, and detect subtle errors in various passages.
You will need to master both common writing conventions (such as proper use of the comma and semicolon, etc.) and more advanced grammatical concepts (subjunctive voice, irregular past participles, etc.)
I have all the necessary study materials, including a dozen actual, previously administered SAT tests, so you will not need to purchase extra books.
The SAT Writing section is my favorite component of the test. I've consistently scored 800, often without a single error.
As Mark Twain said, "The difference between the right word and the almost-right word is the difference between the lightning and the lightning-bug."
Though I go to school and teach for a living, I'm also a writer. Last year I published my first novel. Creative and analytical writing appeal to me especially, not to mention fiction.
