Keith is the best tutor anyone could ever ask for. He is so understanding and considerate and really genuinely wants you to do well in your course and in life. If I was late to our tutor session at my house he would sit in his car and wait for me. He would always be so pleasant and kind. Every course he has taught me in college and highschool, I have gotten an A in. He shows you that you can do it and he gives you the confidence by encouraging you. I would have never thought that I would be able to do math like I am now and it's all because of Keith. He really made me realize that I can do anything and that I can do very difficult math. With Keith you will be able to go above and beyond your goals and he will be right there with you telling you that you can do it. I really am blessed to have him in my life and he is the best tutor I have ever had. Because of him my GPA is amazing and I am not even worried about the classes he tutors me in even though they are very difficult classes. He is the best tutor you will ever find! Hands down! -Sam McCarthy

Tutor Revolution is absolutely fantastic!!! I have worked with Ashley and her team for about 5 years. Ashley has helped both of my sons during high school and still today for various reasons—STAAR, ACT, College Writing, Science. The success my boys have received from her academically has been phenomenal but the long-lasting confidence she has instilled in both has been life changing. I even have one child who is extremely dyslexic and after researching many programs and tutors, my son could not have received more outstanding results especially with standardized tests and STAAR! As a parent, Ashley has always valued and respected my input as well as willing to try new things and make adjustments for what is best for my sons’ learning. Tutor Revolution is the best of the best with making a difference and is by far the best for children.

My son took up Chem AP in 11th grade along with other challenging AP & Honors courses. He soon realised that AP Chem was well beyond what he imagined it to be & started failing in the subject. It soon cascaded into his other subjects due to lack of confidence. I used other tutors but to no effect. I found Sandeep on Thumbtack & tried one last shot at a tutor before asking my son to give up his AP & Honors courses, in order to maintain his remaining grades & our sanity. Sandeep came as a God sent gift. My son not only started scoring well within the first few weeks both in Chem & Math but regained his lost confidence. He managed to stay on in all his AP & Honors classes. That in turn helped with helped improve his scores in all his other subjects & his practice SAT scores. Sandeep instilled great study values & work ethics. He’s a hard task master with a gentle hand. My son has found a mentor & friend in Sandeep. My son who had given up hope of getting into any good college, today has the confidence that he will succeed.

Mr. Keith is a very good math instructor because he helps me easily understand difficult math topics. He has a more engaging and fun tone than other teachers that makes me want to learn math and works through the problems at our own pace. He also has methods that are simple to remember but really help us solve a problem quick and easy without and hesitation. I would very much recommend Mr. Keith as a math tutor.

My daughter always seemed to have panic attacks leading up to tests. I was desperate to find a way for her to be comfortable especially as SATs were coming up. All I can say is after a few weeks with the tutors and life coaches at Chelsea International Education, my daughter’s confidence level went up a lot. She was not only prepared to take her SATs but her core academic skills have improved tremendously, which has helped her with her AP exams. The fact that all of the Chelsea tutors are fully qualified teachers, I think makes a major difference and really sets them apart. It really is a quality service and I am very happy to recommend them to anyone.

About

Our Tutors only tutor in subjects they teach or have taught. We won't have a Spanish teacher tutoring your child in math!

About

I provide tutoring services for children and adults, either online or in person. If in person, I prefer a public location. I would prefer in person, rather than online, as I feel that the medium allows for a better connection. I have almost 4 years' experience as a teaching assistant, worked as a writing consultant in the Writing Center at the University of Texas at Dallas, have previous experience tutoring children and adults, and have worked as an SAT (English) and ACT teacher. I have my BA and MA in psychology and am currently working on my PhD in arts and humanities. I'm very patient, and with my psychology background, I have worked in mental health and have experience with individuals with psychological diagnoses, learning disorders, and emotional issues. I specialize in English -- writing, reading, editing, as well as study skills, organization, the social sciences, and humanities. I'm well-versed in a multitude of topics. If you're looking for a tutor for a specific subject, just ask!

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.
