Randle Moore has been tutoring my daughter in pre-calculus and my son in Algebra 1. He is very good at explaining the concepts so that they understand and can then apply them in their work. He is also very flexible in scheduling with us and is prompt and reliable. I would not hesitate in recommending Randle Moore to anyone who is looking for a math tutor.

    Janelle helped my complete an essay for school. It was a really tough subject and I was having difficulty even starting it. I reached out for help when I was running out of time and Janelle came through. She was able to sit with me and explain the best way to outline my thoughts so the essay would be easy to write. I got an A on my paper, some great tips on how to write essays, AND now I have someone I can call in case I'm having trouble and its crunch time! Janelle was easy to talk to, easy to meet with, and hands down the best tutor I've had!!!

    About

    Do you have a hard time understanding math concepts? Is your math instructor unable to explain things in enough detail for you to comprehend? A professional mathematician, I have been equipped in the most effective techniques for teaching math. I am trained in customizing instruction specifically to your needs and making the most hard math topics easy to understand. My focus is providing you the knowledge needed to do the homework problems yourself. I can teach you the required skill set to assist you in passing your math courses. Also, I am experienced in preparing students for different tests, such as the TAKS, SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, etc. I have discovered that majority of students are perfectly capable of learning math. The big problem I see is inadequate self-confidence in math. My tutoring sessions are created to enhance the student's self confidence in a non-threatening and calm environment. Gentle encouragement is the reward given to student progress. Students are never reprimanded or criticized for showing a lack of understanding or asking questions. In fact, I encourage questions, and I regard mistakes as a learning opportunity. Nothing makes me happier than watching the light bulb switch on when a student finally understands a concept they thought was incomprehensible. I provide professional tutoring services in all topics in mathematics, including algebra, basic arithmetic, geometry, calculus and trigonometry to students of any age. I have a master's degree in math and am a college instructor in mathematics. For more than 15 years, I have been tutoring and teaching students in an extensive variety of math classes at the college level. I have consistently gotten excellent ratings from both peers and students on my teaching style. I have been educated in strategic tutoring technique. Traditional tutoring styles only offer assistance on specific assignments designated by their teacher as homework. Strategic tutoring makes the student learn how to master the learning strategies required for the specific subject, thus, in time, doing away with the need for a tutor. I can travel to your home to assist with studying for exams, homework, etc. I have a flexible schedule and charge $50 per hour. There is no charge for cancellations or mileage. There are no long-term commitments or contracts. Once you become my student, I won't charge rate increases for you.

    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.
