Howard have been tutoring my two daughters so that they could increase there SAT/ACT scores. He slso tutors me in Pre-Cal Math and English Literature. He is an excellent tutor that knows the material he is teaching. He is always willing to go above and beyond. He makes sure we understands the material. I was surprised when after just 3 weeks working with my daughter, she was able to raise her SAT scores by 90 points. My daughter has an A in Math now all because of Howard. Myself was failing Math in College. I had a D in the class and now I have a B. My first test I got 46%, and after working with Howard within two weeks I got a 94% on my next test. I don’t know how he know these stuff. It just comes naturally to him. If you want your child or even you has an adult going back to colkege like myself; Howard his the guy you need. My daughters are not the easiest kids to teach, but everytime Howard leaves my home they have more confidence in themselves and they grades have increase. So I know he’s doing a grest job.I recommend him with a 110%.

Dana is patient and is a great teacher. I speak English with a Spanish accent due to being originally born and raised in a Hispanic culture. She helped me pronounce the words better so people can understand me better when I communicate. She helped a lot with my English grammar skills, vocabulary and editing. I highly recommend her. She is an excellent tutor.

My daughter has been going to Mathnasium for quite a while. She was really behind in math, she hated it, in fact. She was in 9th grade but working from a 4th grade level. Mr. King and his crew at Mathnasium of Garner were able to work with her 1 on 1 and she actually is working on grade level in grade 10 now, or Math 2 as they call it in HS. She is not afraid of math anymore, in fact she gets 100's on some of her tests and quizzes . I can't believe the difference. She goes willingly to tutoring, she likes math. I really can't say enough good things. There really is no price you can put on the changes I see in her improvement.

    Mrs. Chapman is an excellent teacher and tutor certified in the Wilson Reading Program. She tutored our child, who had been diagnosed with dyseidetic dyslexia at the age of 6, for three years. Thanks to Mrs. Chapman, our child never fell behind in school. In fact, she has excelled in reading without any school intervention. Mrs. Chapman is very knowledgeable about reading programs, highly reliable and conscientious, communicates well with parents, and earns her students' trust. She is very caring and encouraging. Mrs. Chapman is definitely one of the best teachers my child has ever had.

    Krithika is an excellent tutor. She knows all the conventions, rules, expectations, and online resources for topics of high school writing such as critical thinking, literary analysis, research papers, SAT prompts, and college admissions. Like her profile says, she brings passion to the subject. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious, so not only has my son’s writing improved, but so has his interest in the subject. She’s an excellent communicator who can connect with the student as well as mediate with the parent. I am sure her advice and guidance are going benefit my son for the rest of his life.

      Very patient and courteous. Always on time. Works well with the children. The children have shown growth & improvement thanks to Stephanie.


      I am teaching mathematics and statistics course to high school students. I also do consulting mathematics and statistics projects.


      As a college student at UNC Pembroke, I specialize in a variety of skills, skills that I will be able to help you with. From Photography to tutoring, I will be there to help!


      What makes me different? I tutor professionally full time rather than as a hobby or side job. I absolutely LOVE my job, and it shows in the quality of my work. When I take on a student I am invested in giving them everything I can to help them succeed. That often means I stay a few minutes extra or go out of my way to squeeze someone in my schedule for the day. I am patient and give constructive as well as positive feedback. I'm young and can better relate to my students. I am very flexible and do my best to accommodate whenever possible. Over the years I have developed unique strategies for explaining steps in ways that students can remember. I focus less on the proper vocabulary, if necessary, and use common language that the student will understand. I feel it is the teacher's job to explain the why of math and teach vocabulary, but my job as a tutor is to make sure the students can do the work.


      I am pretty flexible when it comes to this area. The most popular services I offer are tutoring, mentoring and writing papers or essays. I tutor in all areas including the following: * Math: early education, pre-algebra, algebra, college algebra, statistics, logic, trigonometry and high school geometry * English: early education, spelling, grammar, reading, literature, writing and poetry * Science: early education, earth science, physical science, chemistry (high school level) and college biology. I have a full lab and love running experiments and doing things hands-on. * Test Prep: SAT, ACT, ASVAB, EOG or just any upcoming test * Computer: basic computer skills for Microsoft, Chrome and Apple including setup, operating, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook), Windows XP, Windows 8.1 and RT, typing, settings, applications, basic javascript, the internet, clouds, etc. * Social Media: anything and everything * Cellphones: set up, applications, settings, operating, texting, calling, etc. (android, Windows or Apple) I also mentor young adults. I am great when it comes to getting along with today's children and youth even (especially) the troubled ones as I myself fit into that category during high school. I am a positive role model and know how to gain trust and friendship. I write papers and essays for high school and college students. The paper's I write are completely written by me. I will never plagiarize or copy. I understand the consequences. I know how to format and cite papers correctly and can write anything from a creative story, public speech, history paper, narratives, rhetorical papers and even science research papers. If there is something you need done that isn't mentioned above, please just ask me. It is impossible to list everything that I have done and am capable of doing. I am an honest person and any work I do for you will be done with integrity. I do good business and will not associate with anything that sounds shady.


      I am a tutor with over 10 years' experience in helping students succeed in various areas of mathematics. I started as a math tutor in my first year as an undergrad and have continued ever since. I've received numerous personal achievement awards in mathematics and I would be happy to share items from my CV with prospective clients. If you're struggling with math, ask for Zack!


      I am a current Economics graduate student and teaching assistant at NC State. I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Theoretical Economics, Mathematical Finance, and Business Administration with a minor in Mathematics at Trinity University in San Antonio. While attending school in Texas, I worked part time as a ACT/SAT Tutor and Classroom Instructor for Kaplan Test Prep. I have experience teaching classes and tutoring students of all ages, having taught high school SAT/ACT prep classes as well as giving undergraduate-level economics lectures and tutoring. My schedule is very flexible: I will have classes for about 12 hours a week for the next 2 weeks (ending at 2:45 each day), and then I will be available at all times after May 5th, until classes resume in August.


      I can tutor in multiple areas of engineering, IT. I have a BS in electrical engineering and masters in computer engineering. I have taught engineering and IT since 2003. I specialize in CCNA and CCNP level knowledge.


      I offer one-on-one tutoring and have teaching experience in Algebra I and II, Geometry, General Math. I worked for 23 years, doing college teaching (counseling psychology).


      I work with a variety of students and children ages 2-18 on writing, history, and grammar to ensure they can write papers, emails, letters, and other writing materials. I provide a professional, yet friendly, service to students who are in need of a little extra help.


      I have tutored high school students in the past for the SAT and have received positive feedback, so I am well-experienced. I am a college student so I have recently taken the SAT and can teach test-taking tips that have worked from me.

      • 10 years in business

      I have used many formal and informal methods to achieve student success. I also am very comfortable working in any type of setting. I have had many students go through college and graduate school.


      I have a Ph.D. in French and have been a teacher for 15+ years.

      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.
