I have deep experience tutoring all sections of the ACT exam, as well as improving general literacy skills. Some of my students' results include:

- A 1.7 point increase in ACT composite score in a class of 18 high school students over a single semester, including a 2.1 increase on the ACT Math section
- A 1.5 year average increase in reading level for over 120 students in a single school year
- A 27% increase in passing scores on Mississippi's end-of-year English II assessment in a single school year

I've moreover provided exceptional value as a resume and college/fellowship application counselor, including facilitating a successful Fulbright English Teaching Assistant award in the Netherlands for 2019-2020.
