Graduating in 2005 from The St. Mark's School of Texas and then the University of Texas at Dallas, I have always been trained and excelled in critical thinking and mathematics. My success is largely through an education which focuses on process rather than solution. In the same way you can give a man a fish you can cram for a test. However, in the same way you can TEACH him to fish, you can give a deeper understanding of a subject that will provide for continued success.

While my specialities lie in mathematics, I am also able to help with reading comprehension and English related matters.

Regarding standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, etc. there is no substitution for practice, however, a guiding hand can definitely make the difference between average and outstanding. With a 34 on the ACT and a 1520 SAT (old style out of 1600), I can provide that helping hand.
