"Learn With A Tutor Who Has Consistently Aced the ACT"
I have tutored in various settings and to many different types of students. I am currently a college student, and so I closely recall the stresses and pressures of taking these standardized tests that can determine the course of a student's entire life. Although I am a student, this is not just some side gig. I take tutoring very seriously and I am well-versed in the tests themselves, the subject matter, and the methods of learning and studying required to bring out a student's full potential... ... More
