Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Math tutors
"I love algebra because it's so neat and there's always a right answer, and I enjoy helping students realize that it's more straightforward than it seems. I learned Spanish as a second language, and becoming fluent was one of the most exciting things I have ever done. Helping beginners to feel comfortable with the language is very rewarding. Last, I have worked with so many students who have great ideas, but struggle to write them down effectively in the ways that teachers, tests and colleges require."

"I love it so much that when I feel stressed out I work on Algebra problems to calm me down. I have been tutoring for a long time; I even used to get extra credit in high school for tutoring my peers. I am fluent in Spanish, and I have tutored in that as well. In my free time, I like to going on hikes, read good books, work out, and spend time with my family and friends."

" Soon after, in the fall of 2009, I began working with Varsity Tutors in St. Louis. Through both these tutoring roles, I had the opportunity to help students ranging from middle school aged kids to graduate students in a wide array of subjects. Though the types of students I have tutored are varied, the common theme in my tutoring experience has been empowering the student to truly learn concepts through problem solving. Based on my personal experience as both a tutor and a student, I have seen that thinking, working, and solving problems helps solidify a concept much more than simply hearing someone lecture about it." ...

"I focus on what the students feel is their weakest area. I like to develop study guides with the student to help them pinpoint key topics and through the process engage in comprehensive review of the material. I let the students lead the direction of the sessions through their questions rather than lecturing. I am accessible and flexible with scheduling. I aim to relate the concepts to the student by explaining the information in everyday contexts and develop tricks and mnemonics to best grasp the material."
