I have been a tutor for more than 11 years and thoroughly enjoy it! My specialties are SAT and ACT prep, as well as algebra and geometry. I have experience working with homeschool students from pre-K to college in a variety of subjects. I also have experience with college applications and essay writing. I enjoy helping kids overcome their fear of math and realize that they can do it! My students tell me that I have a way of making math seem easy for them. It makes my day when students bring home an A or achieve a super high SAT or ACT score. I have two degrees in Business/Computer Information Systems, and I am a lifelong learner.
I left the corporate world after 20 years to stay home with my three children when they were young. Then, I found my calling as a tutor and have since become a certified professional Florida educator (math grades 5-9 and 6-12).

ACT English

I have been teaching ACT prep for 10 years to individual students and small groups. The good thing about the ACT English section is that it tests only about 10-15 grammar rules, so students can get very good at spotting the errors with some practice and guidance. For example, there are a few words to avoid at all cost. With prep, students usually find it easier to increase their scores in the English section than in other sections.
ACT Reading,

ACT Reading

I have been teaching ACT prep for 10 years to individual students and small groups. I have accumulated a large number of tricks and techniques for all sections of the ACT test to help students attain their highest scores possible. Many of my students have seen increases of 5 to 10 points on their ACT composite scores which translate to a 400+ point gain on the SAT. Some have even higher gains. For example, one of my students just took the December 2014 ACT test and her superscore increased from a 16 to a 29 ---equivalent to a 780 point gain on the SAT!

I have been teaching ACT prep for 10 years to individual students and small groups. I have accumulated a large number of tricks and techniques for all sections of the ACT test to help students attain their highest scores possible. The ACT math section covers concepts taught in middle school math all the way up to trigonometry. However, that should not scare students away from trying the ACT. In fact, learning and practicing SOHCAHTOA will get the student through most of the trigonometry questions on the ACT.

College Counseling

College Counseling

As an SAT and ACT tutor for the past 10 years, I have had many questions from students and parents about college counseling. I have been hired by several parents to walk their students through the process of choosing which schools to apply to, meeting application deadlines, proofreading and advising on application essays, and completing financial aid forms. The process of college counseling goes hand in hand with taking college entrance exams, as the ultimate goal of both is to help students attain acceptance to their schools of choice.

Science

As an ACT tutor for 10 years, I have accumulated a large number of tricks and techniques for all sections of the ACT test to help students attain their highest scores possible. The ACT Science section is often the most intimidating for my students, but it does not have to be. Did you know that it is possible to achieve higher than average scores on the science section without Biology and Chemistry knowledge? My ACT tutoring will take the fear out of the science section, giving many students the confidence to give the ACT a try.
