"Math and Chemistry Tutor. Test Prep: SAT/ACT, Praxis, ISEE and more!"
Beyond understanding the required math, scoring well on the ACT has to do conquering those careless errors, because there is no partial credit on the ACT, - and being able to read and understand word problems. I can help on both fronts. I review the math covered by the ACT - algebra, geometry, data and statistics, and some trig/advanced alg 2. Even for those who have not yet had alg 2/trig, the ACT is very predictable, so we can prepare a student for the types of questions the ACT asks in those areas. More importantly, I teach a method to read word problems and quickly and confidently write do ... More

I have tried several tutors for my son for calculus. Daniel should have been my first choice. My son felt very comfortable with him and Daniel's knowledge of calculus enabled my son to succeed in his class. I highly recommend him.

I went to Faith last year for help with organic chemistry II. I needed the help BADLY and she was able to provide that for me. Without her help, I don't know if I would have been able to pass the course. She was available, even on weekend mornings, to sit down with me and help me through my struggles. Faith is a very patient tutor, and was able to break down the material into terms that I could understand. When I would get a test back, we would go over it together in order for me to improve for the next test. I highly recommend Faith to anyone who needs help in any chemistry course (especially organic chem!) She saved me from having to retake that course!
