Description

Half price for first two-hour lesson! Money back if you don't want a second lesson! Most of my students want to raise their scores on standardized tests like the LSAT, GRE, GMAT, SAT, and ASVAB, but I tutor other subjects such as math, history, and reading and writing skills. Why I should be your tutor The experiences of my most successful students can help you determine whether I am the best tutor for you. A good number confess that they had not previously done particularly well in school....

Subjects

  • ACT English

    The English section of the ACT contains some tough passages, and it asks students to identify and correct a number of common writing errors. Although good writing is partly a matter of art, the ACT almost entirely ignores that fact and focuses instead on the “mechanical” skills of writing, such as spotting dangling modifiers or pronouns with an ambiguous antecedents. Whether you want to raise your score dramatically, or just figure out how to eke out a few more points, I'll help. Not only have I taught these skills to hundreds of high-school and adult students, I've also published a book and several articles.

  • ACT Math

  • ACT Reading

    Everyone who makes it to high school knows how read, but few people understand that standardized tests like the ACT assess skills beyond what one learns in school. My students become outstanding ACT readers (including natural science passages) because I teach them two things: First, reading matter on the test contains signals that help us take control of the text, rather than just react to it. Second, the ACT has predictably asked the same kinds of questions for several decades. I'm a great reader myself, but I take special pride in my many students who learned how to read as well as I do.

  • ACT Science

    My own ACT science passage score, when I was in high school, was nearly perfect. I have a BS in engineering, and a Ph.D. in the history of science of technology, so I am considerably familiar with how to navigate science-oriented writing.

  • algebra 1

    I am an electronic engineer, so I know much more math than what is tested on algebra tests. I also have more than twenty years of teaching and tutoring experience.

  • algebra 2

    I am an electronic engineer, so I know much more math than what is tested on algebra tests. But doing well on tests alone does not qualify me to teach. I also have more than twenty years of teaching and tutoring experience.

  • American history

    I have a Ph.D. in history from the University of North Carolina--Chapel Hill. I have several years of teaching college-level American history, and have authored a book and several articles about American history.

  • ASVAB

    20% discount from normal hourly rate (i.e., $40 per hour) Everyone who desires to enlist in the U.S. armed forces must earn a minimum score on the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery). I teach the following sections of the test: * Word Knowledge (WK) * Arithmetic Reasoning (AR) * Mechanical Comprehension (MC) * Electronics Information (EI) * Mathematics Knowledge (MK) * General Science (GS) * Paragraph Comprehension (PC) * Verbal Expression (VE) Please note, however, that recruiters use about half of the ASVAB's sections only to assess specialized areas of knowledge such as automotive mechanics or electronics. So your scores on those sections don't really matter if you aren't already an expert. Far more important is your "general knowledge" performance. After you complete basic training, your scores in the following four sections will essentially determine whether you qualify for certain schools and other training: * Word Knowledge (WK) * Arithmetic Reasoning (AR) * Mathematics Knowledge (MK) * Paragraph Comprehension (PC) If you are struggling with the ASVAB, please write me. I'm a veteran myself, and can help.

  • ESL/ESOL

  • European history

  • geometry

    I am an electronic engineer and have been teaching geometry for nearly twenty years.

  • GMAT

    I've been teaching and tutoring the GMAT for more than fifteen years and know that most students tend to sell themselves short. They see themselves as "bad at tests." But most need only to brush up on verbal or math skills, and learn a few new test-taking methods to master the GMAT. I don't promise overnight miracles; I'll figure out what you need to know, and if you follow my guidance and put in the time and work, you'll achieve almost any score you want.

  • grammar

  • GRE

    I've been teaching and tutoring the GRE for more than fifteen years and know that most students tend to sell themselves short. They see themselves as "bad at tests." But most need only to brush up on verbal or math skills, and learn a few new test-taking methods to master the GRE. I don't promise overnight miracles; I'll figure out what you need to know, and if you follow my guidance and put in the time and work, you'll achieve almost any score you want.

  • LSAT

    Online and live tutoring available! Nothing determines the start of your law career more than your law school. And nothing determines which law school you get into more than your LSAT score. I've been an professional LSAT specialist for more than a decade, and know the test inside out. No matter what you have scored before, I can help. My students typically improve their scores by AT LEAST 30 PERCENTILE POINTS. The LSAT lends itself especially well to online tutoring. In fact, for many students--perhaps even most--online tutoring is by far the best way to go! Please write me if you have any questions.

  • prealgebra

  • proofreading

    I have more than twenty years of proofreading experience, primarily with scholarly texts, but also with articles targeted for the general public. I've taught writing classes, and have edited everything from personal statements to master's theses to book manuscripts. I have degrees in both engineering and the humanities, so I am comfortable with almost any subject matter. Much of what I know as a proofreader I learned from the talented editors who have proofread the book and many articles I've published myself, so I know what writers want. Try me out! I'll not only improve your writing, I'll also help you become a clearer and better organized writer.

  • PSAT

  • reading

    Here are a few under-appreciated facts about reading: First, it ranks among the important skills in life. Indeed, it's perhaps THE most important determinant of success in school or one's career. Second, a surprisingly large number of people—of all ages—do not read nearly as well as they should or could. Third, contrary to common belief, the ability to read well isn't something one is born with; it's entirely learned. There's no “reading gene” in our DNA, any more than there's one for operating a computer or driving a car. Teaching students how to beef up their reading skills is one of the most gratifying parts of my work. I have a long track record of helping motivated persons to improve their reading skills in as little time as a few weeks. I'm disciplined, but patient, and I'll show you the secrets of how to process quickly even the most difficult text. I'm proud of the fact that most of my students end up reading as well as I do.

  • SAT math

  • SAT reading

  • SAT writing

    I have taught writing at the college level for more than twenty years, and I am intimately familiar with the expectations of SAT graders. I have published a book and several articles, and I have edited a considerable amount of writing by students and colleagues.

  • TOEFL

  • vocabulary

  • world history

  • writing

  • Common Core

    I teach common-core math in geometry, algebra, and trigonometry. I took five years of math courses when earning a B.S. in electronic engineering, and I have been tutoring in math for about twenty years.
