About Michael

I've tutored a handful of students for the ACT test, and I used to score the written tests for ACT. I helped a student improve his score by two points, which qualified him for a scholarship, and recently helped another student score a 32 on the science portion of the site.

I'm a former newspaper reporter and editor, so writing and editing are things I've done for many year. I currently work for the University of Colorado.

I was in all honors math classes in high school and took AP Calculus as a senior.

I was in all honors science classes in high school and have helped a student score a 32 on the science portion of the test.

I was in all honors English classes in high school. I'm a former newspaper reporter and editor, so writing and editing are things I've done for many year. My past job was at the University of Notre Dame and I currently work for the University of Colorado.

I have created cheat sheets for all sections of the ACT test and whether we have one tutoring session or a handful, I can successfully help you prepare for the ACT test.

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 Reading

I have worked as an editor for over 12 years for numerous newspapers and two of the top universities in the nation -- the University of Notre Dame and the University of Colorado.

In the ACT Reading text, the test questions ask you to derive meaning from several texts by referring to what is explicitly stated and using reason to determine implicit meaning.

Specifically, questions will ask you to use referring and reasoning skills to:

determine main ideas
locate and interpret significant details
understand sequences of events
make comparisons
comprehend cause-effect relationships
determine the meaning of context-dependent words, phrases, and statements
draw generalizations
analyze the author's or narrator's voice and method
