Hi, I'm Montana! I am a passionate high school teacher in Memphis with seven years of teaching experience. With a liberal arts background from The College of William and Mary, I bring a strong love of learning to all of my classes and tutoring experiences. I firmly believe that all learning, even test prep, can and should be engaging for students! More recently, I earned my Masters of Science in Education from Johns Hopkins University. This experience gave me a more formal background in education and has helped me drastically improve outcomes for students. I believe that all students can improve and achieve at high levels, and I am dedicated to constantly refining my skills as a teacher so that I can best help students.

As a high school teacher, I have taught a variety of subjects including environmental science, computer literacy, and ACT prep to all high school grade levels. For the past 5 years, I have taught an ACT prep course that addresses all four content areas of the ACT. I have a deep familiarity with all aspects of the ACT, and have guided each of my classes to dramatic ACT growth. This year, my students on average increased their composite scores an average of 3 points. I love seeing the satisfaction that students feel from unlocking the secrets of the ACT, developing strategies that work for their learning and test-taking styles, and ultimately seeing improvement.

On an individual basis, I am responsive to student needs. Students might need help in one or multiple ACT subjects, and I am always ready with resources, strategies, and supplemental information to support students in their desired areas of growth. I strive to make each tutoring session feel personalized.

I have taught ACT Math content in a classroom setting for three years, and have tutored dozens of students individually in ACT Math as well. My students average a two point gain on the ACT Math section.

ACT Science is my favorite section, and I personally earned a 35 on the Science section when I took the ACT as a student. My students
