ACT 
This is one of my top subjects!
Proficiency: Expert

I work with many high school juniors  including athletes  that often score a composite of 30 or above the very first time they take the ACT after completing ACT prep with me. I prepare students for all four sections of the new, STEMfocused ACT. Several of my students have earned full ride scholarships to their chosen college based on their ACT scores.
I am KY and TN certified in middle school math. I have been designing and teaching ACT prep courses, with great success, since 1997. I tutor in person and online using the Wyzant platform.

I'm great at explaining basic Algebra concepts in multiple ways, so students can fully grasp the concepts. 
Algebra II

I tutor middle and high school students who need assistance with Algebra. I coach future college students who need to review Algebra coursework to excel in the math section of the ACT. 
American History 
Proficiency: Expert

I love American history. I read nonfiction constantly. I won the Woodmen of the World American history award as a senior in high school. I have a 4.0 average in every history course that I have ever studied at the high school and college level. I would be thrilled to help your student excel in and enjoy American history. 
Biology 
Proficiency: Expert

I have a biology minor from Austin Peay State University with a 4.0 average in every college biology course that I have ever studied. As a test prep coach, I tutor biology on a regular basis as many of my clients are hoping to attend nursing school or are competing for admission to college. I love studying and teaching the interrelationships between biology, chemistry, and physics. 
Literature 
Proficiency: Expert

I prep students for the AP English literature exam. All of my students achieved a score of 5 when they received their scores earlier this month. 
Praxis Exam 
This is one of my top subjects!
Proficiency: Expert

I am KY and TN state certified in middle school math. I prepare students for all three sections of the Praxis core (reading, writing, and math). My students pass their core exams on their next attempt after working with me. I also prepare students for the Praxis 5001 (elementary education multiple subjects) and Praxis 5018 (elementary education content knowledge).
I also, during the past two years, have successfully prepared students for the Praxis math content exams. This includes prepping future teachers for math content 5169. My average student has failed his/her math Praxis exam four times before hiring me. Students benefit greatly from math reviews (including math formulas), drills, strategy, and time management techniques. 
PreAlgebra 
Proficiency: Expert

I am KY and TN state certified in middle school math. I taught developmental math and college math at two year colleges. As a test prep coach, I tutor math on a daily basis. This almost always involves some degree of preAlgebra as students often need a review of the basics before moving on to more difficult mathematical concepts. I'm great at explaining basic math concepts in multiple ways, so students can fully grasp those concepts.
