Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Reading tutors
"I am tutoring a variety of subjects, and I first started tutoring in high school for middle and high school students in my school district. My favorite subject in high school was history, but in college I became interested in psychology and biology. Thus, I have a lot of academic interests and can help out in subjects ranging from the humanities to math and science! I have also had plenty of experience with standardized test taking, and I can help you figure out the best strategy to be confident on the test and succeed. I am easygoing and patient and will personalize my tutoring style so that I can help each student to the best of my ability." ...

" I recently relocated to Chicago from Cincinnati, OH, where I was a preferred Latin tutor at a high school that consistently ranks in U.S. News' and Newsweek's lists of top 100 high schools in the nation. In Cincinnati, I worked with Latin students at all levels. My beginning Latin students saw particularly outstanding results, because I was able to teach them the English grammar and mechanics they needed to transition from English to Latin."

"I genuinely love to educate myself and others, and have successfully managed to apply this enthusiasm for learning and teaching to tutoring at the elementary, high school, and college levels. As a tutor, I prefer to address students for the unique people they are. This interpersonal approach allows me to assess and evaluate students’ academic strengths and weaknesses vis-à-vis their own personalities, interests, and most importantly, learning needs. I do not simply seek to impart or prepare, but rather to take advantage of the opportunity to form a substantive, intimate bond with individual students and help them to assimilate ...

"I started by tutoring French and teaching flute to younger students. I realized how much fun it is to teach and continued tutoring when I was in college.

" I was born and raised here in San Diego. I graduated with honors from UCSB with a BA in Psychology and a minor in US History. For the past 3 years, I've taught ESL (English as a Second Language) abroad in Japan and Chile. I love working with students and helping them grasp concepts that they have struggled with in school. I enjoy building up their confidence in the subject matter, and then watching them be able to use their knowledge to solve problems on their own."

"I have extensive experience tutoring and working with youth in general. I have tutored fourth- and fifth-graders in math and peer-edited countless peers' college essays; I have directed youth sports camps and provided support to severely emotionally disturbed high-schoolers. It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture."

"I have taught business classes at the post secondary level in the UK, and have also tutored a wide variety of subjects to students at various skill levels back here in Chicago.

" My passion for warm temperatures brought me to Arizona last year to work and live with my extended family. I am currently also doing another passion of mine—coaching soccer—while I tutor and look for a good doctoral program to attend. My plans are to continue in the field of education one day as a professor of either history or education. With my vast classroom experience I am very good at assessing student needs and responding accordingly. I believe each person learns in a unique style, and it is the responsibility of the teacher/tutor to identify that style and make accommodations in his/her instructional approach." ...

" Both of my parents taught high school social studies, so you might say teaching runs in the family! I believe that every student has the capability to achieve academically, but that, sometimes, traditional classroom instruction isn't quite enough to lead each student to his or her potential. Working one-on-one with a student allows me to target areas of weakness, while increasing his confidence in his ability to achieve. Standardized testing isn't particularly fun, but getting into the college of your dreams is, and conquering the SAT and/or the ACT is an important step in the process. Tutoring sessions don't have to be unpleasant or ...
