About Isaac


Bio

I am a current Mechanical Engineering undergraduate at the University of Calfornia, San Diego. I took the ACT 3 times throughout my junior year of high school and scored 35, 36, 36 (36/36 ACT is a perfect score). Since then, I have worked over 500 hours as a part-time tutor/mentor. Simply put, I know the ACT inside out and genuinely enjoy tutoring, and I would love to use my study approach, test strategies, and experience to help you achieve success on this step of your college-prep...

I am a current Mechanical Engineering undergraduate at the University of Calfornia, San Diego. I took the ACT 3 times throughout my junior year of high school and scored 35, 36, 36 (36/36 ACT is a perfect score). Since then, I have worked over 500 hours as a part-time tutor/mentor. Simply put, I know the ACT inside out and genuinely enjoy tutoring, and I would love to use my study approach, test strategies, and experience to help you achieve success on this step of your college-prep journey!

For each student I tutor, I devise lessons that are tailored specifically to your needs and provide adaptable support to aid you to reach your highest potential. The core components of my ACT tutoring approach are as follows:

Large-Return Content Teaching: Studying for the ACT can be rather intimidating because of the huge range of topics covered and the limited time you have to solve questions, but over time I’ve become familiar with the topics for each subject that always seem to be on the tests. My lessons for these types of questions will definitely help to lay the groundwork for your new foundational knowledge for success.

Repetition-centered Growth Strategy: This is the BIGGEST reason as to why my students and I are able to achieve high scores on the ACT — learning content details and test-taking strategies are only so effective when they are learned IN CONTEXT. Solving loads of test questions and therefore constantly applying what you learn fully enables you to able to approach every passage and every problem with confidence. As someone who himself has taken nearly 150 FULL-LENGTH practice tests, I will not only guide you thoroughly through a large number of problems, I will also help you to create a schedule that is both effective and efficient, based on practice-central approach. In addition, we will hold sessions where we review your completed practice tests problem by problem, where I will share my own tips and tricks I have learned through my extensive past of test-taking experiences. This, in my opinion, is m

Currently a Junior at UCSD -- Prior to the virus, I played regularly on the club competitive team, and I coached on campus as an on-site coaching staff. In high school, I was the varsity captain for all 4 years of high school, and in lieu of our absent coach frequently coached all members of the team, whether it be the proper fundamentals to more advanced techniques (mental toughness, competitive strategy, stamina management, advanced footwork and balance, etc.)
