ACT Math

I taught SAT, ACT, PSAT, and GRE test preparation classes, tutored one-on-one for these tests, as well as for PSAE, SSAT, and SAT subject tests for chemistry, math, literature, and biology, and was an ACT trainer for new teachers. I began working for TPR in 1994, quit for a few years while I taught in two different secondary schools, then returned to the company. Over the years, I have led many teacher development workshops in schools in the Chicago area and have both edited and written for company publications.

College Counseling

I am fortunate to have a mentor who is one of the foremost college counselors in southern California. He has worked on the admissions staff at some of the most selective universities in the country including USC, Claremont McKenna, UCLA, among others. We meet on a regular basis to discuss trends going on in the college admissions process. So what is it that I can help you with then? 1. Crafting an incredible essay that will grab the eyes of your reader. 2. Teaching you how to position yourself so that you are not seen as a "normal" student. 3. Helping you find colleges that you may not have considered before. 4. Career counseling: Just because you go to a great college does not mean that you'll be on the right path to career success.

Grateful for Mary

I met Mary a few years ago when my older son was preparing for the ACT. She provided excellent service. I contacted her again recently to help for my second, and she is just as great as before. She is worth every penny.
