Test Preparation:
ACT Math

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

More and more colleges are accepting ACT scores each year. Make sure you have the same advantages as every other applicant. Take the ACT.

Algebra 1

Algebra is the basis for all higher level math. I can help you feel more comfortable and understand "why" it works.

Geometry

By far, my personal favorite math subject! Geometry is logical. Let me show you why and how it works.

Prealgebra

I am a full-time high school math teacher of algebra, geometry, and advanced algebra/trigonometry. Having pre-algebra skills is key to being successful in future math courses.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is what I consider your first "big kid" math. You need to be serious and dedicate yourself to study and practice. I love trigonometry, and I think I can help, but you MUST do your part. It's worth it!.
