Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Reading tutors
"For the majority of my professional career I worked for Pearson Education, the largest Educational publisher in the country. There I worked alongside teachers and professors to help write and develop some of today's most cutting edge educational texts and technology. While working at Pearson, I continued to consistently tutor after working hours and on the weekends, and continued to do so after leaving Pearson. I have experience tutoring in all areas of the English language, including ESL, essay writing, SAT reading and writing sections, general reading comprehension and all facets of the writing process.." ...

" There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments. I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in math and science. I have an informal, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN ...

"I am from Manhattan but have been living in the Chicago area for almost 5 years. Ever since I was a little girl, I've had a passion for teaching and for school. I used to line my stuffed animals up and teach them lessons on various books or history on my white board. Fifteen years later, I get to do the real thing. My credentials: I graduated in the top 5 of my high school class and took numerous AP classes as well as the SAT, ACT, and SATII."

I am about to wrap up my 3rd year as an English teacher at a local high school. I've also interned for the LOGOS therapeutic school and subbed at various local schools. Recently, I've been volunteering for a mentoring foundation. I strive to make my tutoring sessions exciting, fresh, and effective." ...

"I'm drawn to that period because it was the start of English literature as we know it--the printing press was just beginning to take off, commercial theaters were opening for the first time, and suddenly there was a huge demand for fiction. Authors hadn't written on this scale before, and so they were incredibly inventive (and more than a little strange)--they could mix fantasy, romance, serious religious allegory, political satire, and crude humor, for example, into one very entertaining book. I've been tutoring high school students for the past three years. My goal in tutoring is for my students to learn what questions they need to ask ...

"I have been tutoring a wide variety of subjects since middle school. My approach to teaching is to cater to the learning style of the individual student. 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."
