About Rachel

I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Miami with a BS in Psychology, a BA in Computer Science, and minors in math and theatre. While in college, I was trained by Kaplan Test Prep and became one of their top SAT and ACT tutors, helping students to achieve score increases of up to 650 SAT points and 8 ACT points.

In Atlanta, Miami, and now Los Angeles, I have been working as a tutor for nearly a decade, specializing in both test prep (ACT/SAT/ISEE - all levels/CHSPE) and elementary, middle, and high school academic subjects (Math: Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trig, Pre-Calc, & Calc AB; Science: Biology, Chemistry; English).

I've been tutoring the ISEE at each level for several years now, and every client I've had has been completely satisfied! I have developed various-step strategies for each of the four sections, and over the course of our sessions, I teach it to my students! It's tried and tested, so please feel free to ask me any questions you have about it.

I use my psychology background to tailor my strategies, approach, and curricula to each student's strengths, weaknesses, and overall needs. For example, if a student has a higher energy level and is excited to learn, then I'm very energetic! If a student is calmer and needs more time with problems, I can be very encouraging and relaxed with him or her. I pride myself on being patient with all of my students, regardless of their needs and experience.

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.

ACT Math

I've been tutoring the ACT essentially since I took it! Nearly a decade. I was initially trained by Kaplan Test Prep, and I now use The Real ACT Prep Guide to tutor my students.

Algebra 2

I've been tutoring Algebra 2 for nearly 7 years! And I specialize in tutoring Math on the ISEE, SAT, and ACT, all of which contain quite a lot of Algebra 2.
