About Holt

I have extensive experience as a student tutor, helping three different students weekly for the last 4 years. I am available for ACT and SAT prep and the highest composite score I have achieved on the ACT was a 32. This composite score can be further broken down to a 35 in English, a 29 in Mathematics, a 30 in Reading and a 34 in Science. I am currently pursuing my undergraduate studies in neuroscience at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas. I will be conducting online tutoring full time this summer.

I have compiled a test bank consisting of 30+ unique previously administered ACT exams during my own ACT practice, therefore I will be able to provide your student with as much practice as he/she desires. I also have numerous ACT and SAT prep books, one in particular that I believe was instrumental in helping me raise my score significantly to a 32. It is my own personal belief that any child has the potential to score 30 or higher on the ACT examination with adequate preparation!

I strongly believe in my multi faceted approach to test prep which includes advanced methods to identify weaknesses and extensive and varied preparatory material usage in those areas. I constantly monitor and report scoring and development throughout our sessions and present reports to parents periodically ,detailing the student's strengths and weaknesses. I am constantly monitoring new teaching styles and developments in test prep tutoring and I will find the approach that works best with your child! I have went through this process myself and I know all of the stressors and traps that these exams present. With my perspective as a successful ACT and SAT test taker who has been through the rigors of high school education, I am able to provide a modern perspective on test prep for younger children and relate with the myriad of issues a modern high school student faces better than an adult with similar materials.

I have tutored both Geometry and Algebra I and I provided assistance for a tutoring client who needed help with ACT Math prep. This student raised her score and met her college objective. I will gladly help with any math class of any grade level, as I have gone through each of them myself through AP Calculus.

Please contact me with any further questions that you may have! I look forward to hearing from you and helping you reach your academic goals in the future!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have worked twice a week with two different students for over a year developing customized algebra study plans and preparing the students for future assignments. I believe the education of each child should be individualized, as no two individuals learn in the same way. Therefore, I will customize my approach to your child. I am confident that I can help your child achieve academic success in Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

As stated before, I have worked weekly with a student in Algebra 2 for the last year and a half. He has had great success and currently is making a high A in the course. I also took the class myself with an A. I would love to work with your son and help him make an excellent grade in the course!

Geometry

I strongly believe in my multi faceted approach to course prep which includes advanced methods to identify weaknesses and extensive and varied preparatory material usage in those areas. I constantly monitor and report scoring and development throughout our sessions and present reports periodically detailing each student's strengths and weaknesses in detail. I am very open to new teaching styles and developments in Geometry tutoring and I will find the approach that works best with your child! I have went through this class myself and I know all of the stressors and traps that these courses present. With my unique perspective as a recently successful high school student, I am able to provide a modern perspective on Geometry prep for younger children and relate with the myriad of issues a modern high school student faces better than an adult with similar materials. I hope to have the opportunity to help your daughter achieve her testing goals! Please send me a message through the Wyzant mail system if you have any other questions or concerns or if you would like to schedule a tutoring session!

Great Tutor

Nia is more confident than I've ever seen her. She is prepping for the ACT this weekend. We are both confident, as a result of the work she has done with Holt that she will exceed expectations. Holt is knowledgeable, relevant, and patience which really makes a difference to a student who has always resisted asking for help.
