“**He really helped my son with ACT prep**”

I have 2 years of previous tutoring experience and I enjoy trying to get a student to understand a subject such that they can solve a problem regardless of how it is worded or set-up. Such that the understanding goes beyond what is gained by repetition.

Repetition can be useful of course but without a better basis repetition can be

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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 is fun and I enjoy helping students to develop multiple tools to solve problems even if they don't understand how to directly solve the problem. Using elimination to get rid of answers that could not be right for instance. Speed is really the key in making it through this test and understanding what pace is acceptable.

By working through examples and helping students to read what is there and not infer what is not there is key to this section. As is carefully reading the questions such that foolish mistakes are not made. Looking for key words, understanding the examples and learning to read the section quickly but carefully are important for doing well in this section.

I have taken and tutor advanced math courses. Right now most of my students are in high school algebra 2 so I have a great deal of experience explaining how to solve these problems.

I had calculus in college and went on to apply it to solve engineering problems. I have a degree in chemical engineering. I tutored my classmates when I took the course in undergrad. I enjoy helping people to understand this useful and interesting subject.

I have been tutoring math and chemistry for 6th months and use math regularly to compre loans etc.

As with all these standardized tests I like to work off of a problem book that we can get at the library. I like to get the student to understand the section, how it is scored and how quickly they are expected to solve problems. When first solving problems I want them to understand the various types of problems they will see and work through many examples. We can speed up as understanding is gained as well as learn how to eliminate answers that do not make sense.
