Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Reading tutors in Spring, TX
"Growing up in Houston, I left home after freshman year of high school to attend the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science, from where I graduated high school early with two years of college credits. While I tutor many subjects, math and science are easily my favorites. I have always enjoyed tutoring others because it allows me to contribute to one’s success. Since the beginning of middle school, I've worked with students from sixth grade to college. I enjoy teaching math, but I am also experienced in SAT/ACT preparation, chemistry, biology, physics, mandarin Chinese, grammar, and writing." ...

" I'm a little unusual because after graduating from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in History (concentration in European History), I spent two years doing a Post-Bacc in Biology at the University of Houston. However, I think that my experience in two vastly different fields is a positive because it makes me better able to tutor a wide variety of subjects. In my free time, I love reading, cooking (I’m currently working on the perfect chocolate soufflé), yoga, and traveling (Costa Rica and Amsterdam are the plan for this summer). I have been tutoring since 2002 and my experience encompasses a wide range of clients, from middle-school ...

" While I tutor a variety of subjects, math is easily my favorite. I love algebra, calculus, and everything in between, and it shows in my work. My mom tutors, and I picked up my first client from her in ninth grade. Since then, I've worked with students from eighth grade to adults returning to the classroom, students struggling to pass to students wanting to attend (and getting into!) Ivy League schools. Most students come to me for math, but I've also worked with standardized test preparation, chemistry, biology, Spanish, grammar and writing, economics, statistics, and time management." ...

" Because of my major, I have taken a lot of Math and Science courses at the college level, so I understand which skills and concepts are critical to have a firm grasp on in order to tackle more advanced concepts. My tutoring style for each problem or concept is to define the goal and break down the process (which is often initially confusing) into steps towards that goal. This works whether we're working with graphing an equation, learning photosynthesis, or writing an essay. Since I attended high school here in Houston, I understand how challenging the courses can be. But in my opinion, every subject gets to be a lot easier when it's broken down ...

"My high school in Kearney, NE did not have an established tutoring program, but I extended a hand to my teachers and peers to help them with subjects such as Spanish, math, and English. Through these informal tutoring sessions, I realized that the most important goal for a tutor is not merely doing the work for the student, but for the tutor to gently guide the student through the process of dissecting and analyzing problems until the student builds enough confidence in his skills to tackle the problem head-on by himself the next time he confronts it; in some sense, a tutor's goal is to make his job own obsolete. While I will not promise that I ...

"I live in Houston, Texas, and intend to attend Medical school while here in Houston. While an undergraduate student at BYU I helped teach General College Chemistry for seven semesters. I taught in a large lecture setting, small classroom setting, and one-on-one in a tutor setting. After graduation, I worked as a private math and science tutor for students ranging from college senior to sixth grade. I love sports and playing music. I like to play Ultimate Frisbee, soccer, tennis, volleyball, and diving."

"I am originally from North Carolina, but I am learning to love the change of pace that Houston allows. I enjoy tutoring a wide variety of subjects, but I particularly like reading and writing. I have had experience with private tutoring in several math subjects and have previously taught a chemistry class at a summer enrichment program in my hometown. My past experience has been primarily with middle school and high school aged students, but having younger siblings has equipped me with the skills to relate to students at any age."

" Consequently, it was no surprise that I chose to go to Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. Here, I majored in International Culture and Politics where I was able to become proficient in writing, political science, and economics. I also obtained my certification of French proficiency during a language immersion program while I studied abroad in Tours, France. As a result, I enjoy tutoring in many of these same subject areas, with writing and government being the two areas I most enthusiastic about."
