Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I am a very experienced tutor for ACT Math. I am an expert at identifying and addressing weaknesses in content, helping students learn alternate (and faster) methods to answering questions, and familiarizing students with classic ACT Math questions that show up time and time again. All my students have improved their ACT Math scores, from 3-6 points, depending on how much time they've spent with me.

ACT Science

I am a very experienced tutor for ACT Science. I teach content (basic biology, chemistry, physics) in conjunction with strategy specific to ACT Science, such as identifying different types of passages (data representation, research summary, conflicting viewpoints), and how to treat them differently, especially the conflicting viewpoints passage. I emphasize time management, and understanding how to rapidly glean important information from graphs and tables. Most of my students improve 3-5 points on their ACT Science score.

Passed NCLEX on first try!

Jacob tutored me for the NCLEX test. He listens to what you want to go over, and does a very good content review of the material. He also gives you extra materials to help you study. I was able to pass with 75 questions on my first try. Would definitely recommend him.
