About Anthony

The English portion on the ACT is so important because all five sections involve rhetoric, reading, and articulation skills. The English, Reading, and the Written sections focus on skills learned in high school English and Science and even Math questions involve reading comprehension that can set up a mediocre reader for failure. With 14 years of high school English Teaching and ACT Preparedness experience, I try to stay one step ahead of the ACT and dissect each question.

I also have detailed experience with helping guide a student through the college application process, including most importantly: the college essay. My teaching style makes it easy to relate to all students. I have 4 kids and coach three high schools sports and my energy, intelligence, and motivational tactics have proven fruitful: My son has a full ride leadership/academic scholarship to Marquette in 2016, and niece used our tutoring sessions to improve from a 28 to a 32 in 4 weeks. I would love to work with any high school student who has ambition to go to the high school of their choice, or any student that has trouble with English and Reading.

I'm the teacher that compares Macbeth to Sponge Bob and helps students grasp the subject material.
It's about critical thinking, memory tactics, and having the ambition and confidence to succeed--anyone can do it with the right motivator!
