I am an experienced professional tutor who has been tutoring for over 20 years. In addition, I recently worked for five years for a private company that specialized in ACT and SAT tutoring. I have experience in-person and online; and teaching small groups, and 1-on-1. In addition to all portions of the GRE, GMAT, ACT and the SAT (including the newest versions), I have experience tutoring high-school level Spanish, Economics, Business, Finance, Algebra, Geometry, Literature, History, and AP Classes, and most subjects for students in preschool through 8th grade. I even have experience with students with special needs and IEPs.
My students' scores increase, on average, 2-4 points in all subjects of the ACT, and/or 50-150 points in all subjects of the SAT.

I love working with students and have over 15 years of tutoring experience. I graduated withmy Doctorate in Educational Leadership from St. Thomas University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My teaching approach is individualized to each student but always includes positive motivational techniques. I truly love tutoring and would like to discuss if I would be a good fit for your needs. I hope to hear from you soon!
