Carolina was very sweet with my son for his 1st tutoring session. He was shy at first but I saw how she eased him into doing the work she had planned for him. She gave me good feedback on what my son will need in order to get him ready for the upcoming school year. I am glad we made the decision to go with her and look forward to having her help my child succeed over the summer.

My daughter was doing well academically, but I was concerned about standardized test scores and poor reading fluency. After just a few sessions with Smart Cookie tutoring her scores have gone up and her reading is much improved! The independently tailored and structured reading curriculum provided by Smart Cookie has helped my daughter make great gains. Most importantly my daughter looks forward to her sessions!

Approximately once a week, a 30 minute session was scheduled. Since I am in AP Seminar, each session involved the discussion on how to further improve my paper, fix my line of reasoning, and provide proper explanations and evidence. At the beginning of the writing process, the paper was pretty rough, but with the help of Dr. Bates, my paper was in great condition. Every time we had peer review in class, my paper was barely ever commented on because Dr. Bates had prepared me to cover all the points necessary to possibly receive a high in each category of the rubric. Everything about the process of the tutoring sessions went very well and the advice and aid provided was extremely helpful. If there was one thing that did not go smoothly was the planning according to my schedule as there were always things coming up, but Dr. Bates did an amazing job of accommodating for these instances and ensuring that proper guidance was offered.

About

Hello, all! My name is Richard and I have been a math interventionist at a middle school for the past three years now. Initially, I started out tutoring my nephew who was struggling with math. Just recently, he received a "3" on his elementary FCat Math last year. This year, he is in the 5th grade; and I fully expect him to receive a "5" on the FCat Math because his comprehension and understanding has increased tremendously. I coached three sports at my middle school (wrestling, basketball and track) this year, and part of the eligibility requirement is a 2.0 grade point average (GPA). In the past, the team has struggled to keep its best athletes eligible, so I mandated tutoring for all the guys and girls who wanted to participate in the above-mentioned sports. This was a huge success. The extra help with homework, class assignments and test preparation kept the majority of my athletes eligible and able to play the sports they love. The scholastic achievement gained through understanding also cut down on classroom interruption and increased participation, which had an unintended effect on their conduct grades. As far as methodology is concerned, my process is simple: I break problems down to their simplest form and teach students step-by-step how to solve them. Different children struggle for different reasons; so it is imperative for me to solve each problem step-by-step so they know how to organize their work, making it easier for me to diagnose their struggles. There are no shortcuts to math, but there are different ways of attacking a problem. It can be tedious at times, but I require students to show all their work. As a teacher, it is my job to check your process -- not your right or wrong answer. A person can guess on multiple choice questions and get them right 25% of the time. Ensuring that you thoroughly understand the process of solving problems is what I check for, and this method has served me well over the years. I specialize in math tutoring for FCat, SAT, ACT, Algebra 1 EOC, and all middle school math disciplines. Whether you are in high school trying to pass your EOC, or in middle school trying to improve FCat scores or overall math competence, I am the tutor you are looking for. I utilize a variety of online learning tools such as Khan Academy and Tenmarks to assist with the educational process. This is the technology age, and all standardized testing will eventually be computerized, so getting kids use to learning and testing using technology is paramount. I look forward to hearing from you. Good luck with your studies!

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.
