Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT English tutors
"...I worked as a teaching assistant and tutor for a physics course for two semesters my senior year. I am currently applying to medical schools in the Chicago area. I began tutoring while home on breaks from college by helping my younger sisters with their high school courses and by helping them prepare for the ACT and SAT tests. I didn't become a formal tutor until my senior year of college when my physics professor from the previous year asked me to take up a position as a teaching assistant because of my performance in the class and social nature..."

"...While mathematics and the sciences are my academic passions, I never let them keep me from fencing, rowing with the CU Crew team, or adopting interesting engineering projects with my friends (this summer we created a self-balancing skateboard, but we still need to work out some problems before it is safe enough to ride). I graduated from Lakewood High School, where I was enrolled in the local International Baccalaureate program; I also took several Advanced Placement courses. Throughout high school I worked as a graduate assistant for the Colorado Children's Chorale, where I taught music and performance skills to children of elementary to middle-school ages..."

"...I loved my time with these two programs because I was able to help K-8th graders with their task of learning fundamental concepts that would help them acquire new knowledge for the rest of their lives. I've also had some experience in helping classmates with subjects such as Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry. I strongly believe in the idea that, if a tutee does not understand a concept, it is my fault for not having conveyed the concept effectively and in concrete terms..."

"... Often I have been enlisted to assist others with studying math at all levels and occasionally other subjects. In general I find that the best aspect of tutoring is that the typical one-to-one nature is the ultimate in small class size, allowing for full attention to be given to the individual. In part because of my set of eclectic interests, I find all interests to be equally valuable and play some role in society, small however it may be. (There is some intrigue in just about everything!) For standardized tests like the SAT and ACT, knowing the strategies for the test is often as important as being able to determine the answer..."
