For over 10 years, I’ve tutored many high school students in ACT test prep. I use different techniques to approach each section so they can score high. The ACT Math section is similar to the SAT math section but with a visible focus on geometry and trigonometry concepts; it also has a more diversified mixture of advanced math problems and a tighter time limit. Out of all the ACT sections, I have worked the most on ACT Math. Students first go through a complete concept review based on their performance in practice material. Then we work on concept-specific practice questions to ensure that they avoid past mistakes and raise their scores. The ACT English section tests grammar usage, mechanics, and rhetoric. Students need to understand and recognize correct grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure to score well in this section. I have helped many students with ACT English, targeting concept knowledge and skill application as part of their test prep. They continue to study outside of lessons through a customized test prep routine. For the ACT Writing section, I coach how to write a strong, descriptive, and succinct essay response within the time limit. Since the ACT Reading section has four passages always set in four predetermined topic areas, I drill students through key question types and testing strategies to strengthen their reading comprehension, analytical skills, and time management. In addition to working through practice tests with me and on their own, they also complete practice homework outside of lessons. Students who committed to their study plans always raised their scores and felt confident about this section. I always emphasize ACT Science does not require extensive scientific knowledge or skills. It tests high school students' analytical skills, ability to correctly interpret graphs and data, and form conclusions. I help them maximize their reading comprehension skills to glean necessary information and “translate” it into simple instructions that help them find the right answer to a question in less than a minute. Since the ACT Science time limit is the most formidable in the entire test, I also walk students through practice tests to confront any mistakes immediately and correct them so they can learn from the process and be better prepared.
About Natalie G.

For more than 11 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I help students learn more and make progress in their studies. I don't just teach them how to count, read, and write: I show them how to build on their skills and reach their true potential. I know from my own experience how hard it is to learn any subject and how much harder it is to find the right teacher. Now I explain the same concepts I've mastered to countless children and adults who need my help. For every student I work with, I customize our online lessons to fit their needs. I also provide homework, online resources and enrichment learning. Contact me today to set up a risk-free first lesson and let me guide you to successful learning!

Natalie took her time to understand my kids needs and create lessons to fill gaps in their math knowledge and build from there. She gave some homework throughout the week to help my kids catch up in basic math. Natalie was great at communicating with me after every session. She always gave a detailed summary and the plan for next week. Thank you!

Excellent! She explained the trig concepts in a simple manner so it was easy to understand. Very knowledgeable and patient tutor. Wish we would have met her long ago. She was very organized and subject oriented.
