Adam "...Aside from the ACT, I love to teach economics, both micro and macro, business, algebra 1 and algebra 2.

Outside of academia, my hobbies include playing table top RPG’s, video games, and playing the guitar..."

Owen "Hi. I'm Owen, and I've recently retired after a 26-year teaching career. I'm a language specialist who has worked with student and adult clients from kindergarten to post-tertiary level, specializing in English, Spanish, and ESL. I have worked with adults and children from more than twenty countries, from all parts of the world. I have helped hundreds of students write (and re-write) college application essays. I have worked with AP English students as we discuss the duality of Raskalnikov's Napoleon / cleaning lady personality. I have worked with beginning adult Spanish students, moving from basic beginner to functional language usage. I have helped pre-kindergarten students learn the letter B by coloring the Brown Bear's Belly Button Blue.
