Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Reading tutors in Tucson, AZ
"I’m currently working on my thesis for an M.F.A. in nonfiction writing at Columbia University, but I started off as a field biologist, studying birds in Alaska. As a tutor, I draw on a wide range of tools, from organizational and time-management skills to interpersonal finesse and a strong knowledge base in English, writing, science, and high-school-level math. To my early education and five years working in the field of biology I have added years of work as an editor and writer."

Having lived in Argentina for six months, I'm fluent in Spanish and have also taught German to middle school students during college.

"This is true both of the college students and of the high- and middle-schoolers I have taught. When I ran the test-prep program in Missouri, numerous students experienced high levels of success in improving not only their test scores, but also the skills these tests measure. I taught students who started at 25 on the ACT and ended up at 34, but at least as satisfying were those students who started at 14 and eventually achieved 19. More important than such external measurements, however, is the individual student's knowledge that he or she has come into possession of, and internalized, a set of tools useful for further learning. I've edited ...

"As a longtime Tucson native, I decided to come back home to Tucson after graduation and am currently in the process of applying to medical schools. Having taken several standardized tests throughout the years, including the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, and a variety of different courses as an Economics major, pre-medicine student, I feel I can help in many different subject areas. I've served in a variety of tutoring roles over the years, but the one I am most proud of was when I helped a 9th grader in algebra a few years ago.
