Steeven is great at teaching Spanish. He involves the different cultures from Latin America and it is exciting to learn Spanish like that. He also tutors my daughters for math and I can see the difference since they started being tutored.

About

I am tutoring and specializing in Math. I am excellent at helping break that Math fear barrier. I am certified by tutor.com in Calculus.

About

I can build a bond with any student in a month that would take many people a full year. This is not due to me being so amazing in of myself that people flock to me, but I strongly believe as an educator they do. This is simply due to the fact that my clients know I care. They are not a paycheck to me. Knowledge is too serious for that. My students are literally the future, but they are living in confusingly distracted lives, and I help them find the wonder in just learning that many have lost. My students see how much time I spend getting to know them, so that I can teach them in a way that is suited to their individual interests, talents, and learning styles, all while slowly bringing up the areas where they need work. I believe in consistency, honesty, and fairness, but I think learning also HAS to be made fun. I am also patient enough to listen and adjust my method as many times as it takes for a student to grasp something without getting frustrated. I am genuine in how much I love what I do, so even if someone hates the subject I help them with, they usually end up making gains they assumed were impossible, or not worth the effort, and that leads to a gained confidence and curiosity about what else is possible or interesting. I am happy and satisfied if I feel I've helped someone find the joy and power that comes with knowledge and the ability to connect ideas and disciplines that seem separate.

About

I have taught high school Physics for 8 years and enjoy helping student one-on-one to succeed. Physics requires students to apply geometry, trigonometry, algebra and analysis and creative problem-solving skills which I am able to help them (re) learn and then apply to science challenges.

About

I worked with students who had situations in the normal school setting; they needed help with their reading and subjects I assisted students who were still enrolled and some students who had been expelled. My work was through the Juvenile Justice System. Some students were worked with so they would not get behind, in lessons, during their suspension or expulsion. Additionally, I worked with several students towards their GED. Also, I tutored an Elementary student, during the summer. The areas we worked on, together, involved: Reading, Writing, Vocabulary, Creative Writing, Grammar, and Fluency when reading. The student responded to the tutoring and they appeared to gain knowledge towards their upcoming school year.

About

I can help your child in math, reading, comprehension, and grammar. I have a master's degree in elementary education and have been tutoring students for the last 15 years. Previously, I served as the education coordinator for Buehler Planetarium at Broward College for 13 years, along with being an adjunct professor at Broward College for the last 7 years. So, I am proficient in working with all age groups. My specialty is reading. The schools use phonics which (according to their own research) is only 68% effective. Our high dropout rate is a result of this. Now the schools are using another research program, CORE, to teach reading. I have taught numerous students how to read and improved the reading skills of many others. I do not use phonics but a method called Phono-Graphix, which has been around for more than 20 years. It is nearly 100% effective and even works well with dyslexic and LD students. It also teaches reading 10 times faster than phonics and creates excellent spellers. You may check the Internet to verify my statements. All of my students have excelled in both reading and spelling. They regularly test two or 3 grades above their peers. One of my second graders (age 7) was complaining that I didn't have any books that were too hard for her to read. After she successfully read parts from several of my elementary school books, I finally opened a 6th grade social studies book, handed it to her, and said, "Here, read this." She looked at it and was silent for a few seconds. I thought I had finally found something too hard for her to read. Suddenly she reads, "In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania." I was shocked and so proud of her. I can do this for you, too! I am proficient in standard elementary math and also the new Singapore math that is taught in some schools. Singapore seems to be superior since the student tends to think math even after school, i.e., my first grader asked what time it was after we had gone on a local field trip. I told him it was 3:15. We had left at 2:00. He looked at me and said, "We were only gone for an hour and fifteen minutes." No one asked him to do that math. It just came naturally. I also recently increased one math student's comprehension and math ability by two to three grades. I also worked this winter with a 14-year-old student who had been homeschooled with online teachers and was only at a third grade math level. (It was her own fault. She was lazy.) In a few months, I raised her math levels to fifth and sixth grade ability. I can certainly help your child in math. I am a caring and understanding person, and children like me. I work at their speed. I don't push them to do what they can't, but I do challenge them to do their best. I'm sure you will be happy with the results.

I am a very patient mathematics tutor, and my goal is to help students through the difficult parts of learning mathematics. Sometimes it takes time to figure things out, so I am never going to rush through the learning process, nor do I think students should be rushed through learning the building blocks of their future education.

I can see why my student is having difficulty with the subject matter and will take the time to sharpen his or her understanding of prerequisite knowledge in order to proceed with his current studies. My students generally struggle because their fundamentals are weak. I help them to gain a strong foundation upon which to build.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is ACT test prep?

The ACT is a college entrance exam taken by students (typically in their junior year of high school) to determine admission eligibility and merit-based scholarship eligibility. The test may be taken as many times as desired and is not limited to high school juniors. Originally the acronym stood for American College Testing, but now ACT is the stand-alone name. ACT prep is a way for students to strategically prepare for test-taking. ACT prep helps students improve scores, practice taking the test, learn test-taking strategies, and improve material comprehension. Students can get help with ACT prep tutors in one-on-one sessions, via group tutoring lessons, in online self-study programs, or online with a tutor in video calls. The ACT test covers:

  • English
  • Science understanding and reasoning
  • Math
  • Reading
  • Writing essay (optional)

How do you prepare for the ACT?

The ACT is a universally accepted college readiness exam. There are multiple ways to prepare for the exam. One-on-one ACT prep tutoring is one of the most effective ways for students to ready themselves for the test. A tutor who specializes in ACT prep will coach the student on the type of material they can expect while also working specifically with topics that are more challenging for that particular student. Group tutoring sessions are a more cost-effective way to reap the benefits of an ACT prep instructor; a suggestion is to gather a group of four friends or classmates to share the cost. Professional tutors often recommend that test prep begin approximately three months prior to the exam. Cramming — unfortunately — doesn’t provide the same score results as consistent study, test-related homework, and practice exams do. Weekly two-hour learning sessions are what many pro tutors suggest for their college exam prep students. For top test-taking performance, tutors usually provide work throughout the week and the weekly session is used to cement knowledge and address weak areas. Math is a hard topic for most students, so plan accordingly.

What is on the ACT?

The ACT is made up of a variety of multi-choice questions under four main subject areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. There is also the option for a written essay. For ACT prep, it’s important to study each subject. Each subject area is broken down into multiple parts to provide a comprehensive snapshot of the student’s understanding of the material. ACT prep provides an opportunity to prepare for the subject matter in each area.

ACT English:

  • Production of writing: 29 percent-32 percent of English score. These questions focus on topic development and organization, unity, and cohesion.
  • Knowledge of language: 13 percent-19 percent of English score. This section examines the student’s use of vocabulary and effective language use.
  • Conventions of standard English: 51 percent-56 percent of English score. These questions address sentence structure and formation, punctuation and grammar, and recognition of grammatical errors and how to improve.

 

ACT Math:

  • Preparing for higher math: 57 percent-60 percent of mathematics score. These questions cover number and quantity, algebra, functions, geometry, and statistics and probability.
  • Integrating essential skills: 40 percent-43 percent of mathematics score. These questions address comprehension of math learned prior to and after 8th grade.
  • Modeling: less than 25 percent of mathematics score. These questions examine how students use modeling skills in all math topics.

 

ACT Reading:

  • Key ideas and details: 55 percent-60 percent of reading score. The questions test students’ ability to summarize information, draw conclusions, and grasp central themes.
  • Craft and structure: 25-30 percent of reading score. These questions examine students’ ability to understand an author’s word choice and meaning and analyze various points of view.
  • Integration of knowledge and ideas: 13-18 percent of reading score. These questions examine students’ ability to understand facts and opinions and make connections between texts that share similar themes.

 

ACT Science:

  • Interpretation of data: 45–55 percent of science score. Students will need to analyze and manipulate scientific data presented in various formats.
  • Scientific investigation: 20–30 percent of science score. These questions will test students’ understanding of experimental tools, procedures and design.
  • Evaluation of models, inferences, and experimental results: 25–35 percent of science score.

 

ACT Writing:

  • This is a 40-minute written essay that examines students’ competence with ideas and analysis, development and support, organization, and language use and conventions.

What are the subjects on the ACT?

English, mathematics, reading, and science are the four main subjects on the ACT. Writing is an optional subject students can select when they register to take the test. The subjects were determined as a way to test the sum total of knowledge and comprehension that the students have accumulated up until the start of their senior year of high school. ACT prep breaks down each subject of the ACT test so the student understands what type of questions they will encounter and to provide them with strategies for answering questions. Doing well on the ACT is not only about academic smarts. Learning the nuances of taking a standardized test can greatly improve a student’s test scores. On the ACT, each of the four subjects is broken into subsections to test the students’ understanding in that area. The official ACT website provides free online ACT prep tools for each section, including English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing.

How many questions are on the ACT test?

There are 215 total questions on the ACT test. The ACT covers four academic areas and students have 175 minutes total to complete the test. For students who opt to take the ACT writing test, there will be a written essay (in addition to the standard ACT topics), which students will have 40 minutes to complete. For ACT prep, it’s wise to study the material that will be covered within each academic category and take practice tests to become comfortable with the format.

The English test has 75 questions that must be completed within 45 minutes. The math test has 60 questions with a 60-minute time limit. The reading test has 40 questions and 35 minutes total. The science test has 40 questions that must be completed in 35 minutes. Tutors may recommend taking the test more than once as part of the ACT prep training, with the goal of improving your overall score each time. Official ACT recommendations urge students to answer each question on test day, even if it is a guess, as there is no penalty for guessing.
