I am getting a Masters of Ed for Secondary Education, and plan on teaching high school math next year.

Math and Physics Subject Tutoring:
I have a lot of experience in subject tutoring for high school math, college math (including advanced), and physics. I also have experience in elementary and middle school math. I can help explain concepts, give homework and exam preparation help, and try to provoke deeper understanding. I enjoy subject tutoring at any level: its fun and rewarding!

Test Prep Tutoring:
I've a lot of experience tutoring all subjects of the ACT and SAT. I personally scored well on those tests, and have scored perfect scores in each test. When I tutor the ACT, I generally see score improvements of 3-7 points, but have tutored 10+ point bumps before. It depends on the time commitment and determination of the students, where in that range they can improve. I work as a full-time tutor in the Academic Success Center at Depaul University, where I tutor test prep for ACT and the TAP test. (teaching licensure test)

Great tutor!

I contacted Spencer to help my 7th grade daughter improve her math grade to increase her chances of getting into a selective enrollment high school. It was our first time using a tutor, but right from the start of the session, my daughter felt as ease. Spencer assisted her with her homework, explained concepts and math "vocabulary", and gave her helpful tips. We plan on having another session soon. I feel good that I picked the right tutor!

Outstanding 1st TAP Math Session

Spencer wasted no time. He was well prepared with the materials I need to study for the Math, TAP exam. He did an excellent job, assessing my skills and teaching me important math fundamentals, for the Illinois TAP Math test. I look forward to another session. Mark. C.

Great to work with

Spencer is very prompt and is making my daughter comfortable with areas tested on the ACT as well as strategies for taking the exam. She is confident his help will increase her score.

Great Tutor!

Spencer is helping my daughter in her Senior year prepare for ACT. She said he was great and she learned so much and is feeling confident on the section she learned. We look forward to future lessons, he clearly is our set tutor!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My daughter said that Spencer was patient and able to easily answer her questions for her algebra 2 class and was the best tutor she ever work. She would recommend him.
