Approaching Each Test

We will use the same study techniques that helped me consistently score in the top 1 percentile on standardized tests of English language skills. Whether you are taking the SATs, MCAs, or ACTs, I will teach you how to master the grammar, punctuation, usage and vocabulary portions of these tests and help prepare you for taking the test itself.
I use past tests and custom-built question banks, specifically designed for the ACT Math test. After completing a diagnostic pretest, you will be assigned a prescriptive course of study based on your results. You will have unlimited access to the software programs for as long as we continue to prepare together. I also tutor high school math up to twenty hours each week, having amassed hundreds of hours over the past three years. I tutor everything from algebra to calculus. I can teach you how to master every skill expected of you for each portion of each math test and help prepare you for taking the test itself.
Some pointers are helpful, but the primary tool here is practice and repetition.
(ACT) Science
The ACT Science test is essentially a reading test with science content. If you score well on reading tests and have an adequate mastery of science vocabulary, you should be able to read the charts and graphs without too much difficulty. Your science scores will be significantly higher if you practice a few basic techniques and learn to recognize the various types of questions commonly used in the science tests.
We focus on identifying keywords in the prompt, quickly developing a strategy for treating the response, executing a few topic sentences as phrases, then summarizing these in a thesis statement and introducing the essay itself by framing your response.

Student Feedback

“Professional and Knowledgeable”
– Mai, Edina, MN on 1/23/14 Thomas is extremely knowledgeable, especially when it comes to English, reading, and writing, but also in math. He’s also easy to reach and very flexible with rescheduling. We enjoyed working with him.
“Focused, Efficient Test Prep”
– Gayathri, Chanhassen, 6/23/14 My son reached his target score on the ACT, a perfect 36, with the right guidance and a good study plan. Thomas was also very helpful in preparing for the written portion of the test.
“Very thorough”
– Kristen, Wayzata, MN on 7/2/14 Thomas worked with our son to identify the areas of the ACT he wanted to focus on, then developed a customized plan to improve those scores. As a result, our son achieved his target scores on his most recent test, and learned key strategies that helped him improve on all sections. He really enjoyed working with Thomas!
“Exactly the Test Prep I Needed”
– Orestes H., Osseo, 4/28/14 I was doing fine on the Math and Science sections of the ACT and the Quantitative part of the SAT, but needed help on the verbal. We went through a lot of rules about grammar and sentence structure, strategies and helpful tips; I ended up hitting my target scores on both tests.
“Great Results”
– Rosey, Hopkins, MN on 6/23/14 I researched many options for how to approach a tutor/study group for the ACT. I realized I needed the attention and focus of working 1-1 with another adult and that’s exactly what I got. Thomas was able to meet with me on a regular basis and had a nice range of time periods to meet. He was able to help me increase my score by 4 points by giving me lots of practice tests and sites to practice with. Overall a great choice.
