Janet is fun and energetic! She has been a great help to my son who struggled in math. She was also a great help in preparing for the SAT and ACT tests.
My first day of math class I sat at my computer and literally cried because I had no idea what I was doing. I was hesitant to pay for a tutor because as a college student money is already tight but failing my class is not an option I've meet with him once and he is awesome and believe me when I say this because the only time I give reviews is to warn people not to waste their time or money however Alfonso is worth every penny
Arbor Tutors hooked me up with a team of tutors who were able to help assess my gaps and arrange a game plan and I did very well on my SAT. I wish I could give them 1 million stars.
Teresa was an excellent tutor. I am a senior about to take another SAT because I wanted a higher score. She narrowed down my strengths and weaknesses and focused on my subjects I needed help with. Overall, it was a great experience and I recommend her to anybody looking to strengthen their intellectual/academic knowledge.

Michealangelo was an awesome online tutor! He worked very hard to fix a lot of technical difficulties and went above and beyond to make sure she still learned the material. He was patient, upbeat and very positive. I would highly recommend him for SAT prep!
My daughter finds Mathnasium of Leaguecity a friendly welcoming place to improve her math skills. She is frequently greeted by name and all the math instructors are knowledgable, helpful and pleasant.

The SAT is just one factor in the admissions' decision. Schools also consider your high school GPA, academic transcript, letters of recommendation, interviews and personal essays. The weight placed on SAT scores varies from school to school. Most colleges and universities will accept the ACT in lieu of the SAT. For more specific information on the importance of SAT scores at the schools you're interested in, contact the admissions offices directly. What specifically is the SAT? There are 3 SAT sections: math, critical reading, and writing. The writing section includes an essay, which, unlike the ACT, is not optional. From start to finish, the test will take you 3 hours and 45 minutes. Should I take the SAT or the ACT? Is one harder? Is one better, more prestigious, or more useful? If only it were that simple. More information about the SAT vs. the ACT will depend on your school of choice. How is the SAT scored? Each section is scored on a 200 to 800-point scale, making the perfect score 2400. How do I know if my score is good enough to get me into my dream school? Good question. Check out the admissions department at the university you wish to attend by either searching their website or by setting up an appointment. How do I register? SAT registration deadlines fall approximately 5 weeks before each test date. Ask your guidance counselors for test dates, and applications are available in every high schools. How can I prepare? Practice all three sections, and take each practice test seriously. Get a one-on-one tutoring or help to secure a better or higher score. The GED is a high school equivalency examination. You need a total of 2250 points and a basic score of 400 on each test in order to pass. The scores are derived from a special scoring system that isn't based on percentage or rank. If you fail any of the individual tests, you'll have to take that test over again. If necessary, you can take each test up to three times in the span of one year. The following comprise GED's five-part structure: * The GED Writing Skills Test - This measures your ability to use standard English in writing in two ways. Multiple-choice questions test your knowledge in sentence structure, usage, punctuation, capitalization and your ability to organize sentences. The second part is a 250 to 300-word essay in which the student is asked to demonstrate an ability to organize thoughts and express them clearly. Two hours are allotted for this section of the GED. * The GED Social Studies Test - This is 80 minutes in length and tests knowledge of US geography, history, political science, behavioral science and economics. The student reads articles and essays on social science topics and answers questions about maps, charts and related graphs. Students are expected to understand broad concepts and trends in US history and politics. * The GED Science Test - This covers life and physical sciences and includes formats such as short essays, diagrams and charts. Students are expected to understand the context of the readings and answer questions based on a solid knowledge of science. 80 minutes are allotted for this section. * The GED Literature and Arts Test - This includes excerpts from short stories, poetry and novels. Students are asked to understand and describe the themes, meaning, tone and mood of the pieces, expressing themselves in clear and concise English. This section is comprised of 40 questions and takes approximately 65 minutes. * The GED Mathematics Test - This covers knowledge of arithmetic, algebra and geometry. Questions are posed as sentence problems that cover a variety of mathematical concepts. A calculator (provided by the test administrator) can be used for the first half of the math test, but not during the second half. There are 50 questions in total, and a 90-minute period is given to complete them.

I am a University of Houston/Houston Community College graduate in chemical engineering. During my sophomore year in college, I was in a car crash that left me in a coma for one month. Upon waking up, I was a completely different person, and had to re-learn everything. I have been able to recover and finished out my degree with a 4.0 at HCC. I excel in math and science, but I am also able to do SAT test prep. Through re-learning all the subjects I needed to after my crash, I am very fresh on any subject I offer. I love working with kids of all ages, and strive to motivate them in an encouraging way. If my students are succeeding, then I am doing my job, and I always make sure that I do my job! Through my chemical engineering course study and all the re-learning of subjects due to my coma, I am very confident in all subjects I offer. I have gained a mastery of many academic courses through learning the material twice. This has resulted in a strong personal confidence that I can teach anyone these subjects from multiple perspectives of learning. I have recent experience teaching my four-year old daughter reading and basic math skills, and this is how I have found that I love helping others learn. Tutoring is something that I have grown to be very passionate about, and I believe that I bring a very unique way to teaching because of my experiences. I was given a second chance at life the moment I woke up from my coma. Now I'm looking to give my students another chance at learning!
