I have six years of experience in tutoring. My past students have been accepted to these schools:
UC Berkeley, OU, UCLA, NYU--the list goes on.
My specialty is in the ACT, as I have extensive experience both studying for and tutoring in it. I have finished writing a study guide for the ACT for students wishing to make drastic improvements within a short amount of time, as many test preps are far too exhaustive for students to be engaged. I am currently in the process of getting the study guide published.
One of my recent students was able to increase his score on the ACT from a 24 to 30 upon taking it twice.
Along with building a business in ACT test prep, I am currently studying programming and preparing for my second exam (Exam FM) for a career in Actuarial Science.
HobbiesI enjoy running, reading, writing, playing basketball, playing guitar, and listening to music. Having recently moved here to Philly, I plan on continuing my weekly jogs and finding some clubs (boxing, writing, etc.) through which to get involved in the community.
I have developed a specialized approach to each section within the ACT, as each section requires its own philosophy and repertoire. This process has truly been a challenge but I followed through, understanding that creating a great product would resonate with high school students.

My son worked with Samuel to try to increase his ACT score. Samuel worked with him for 2 hours every week. I was very impressed with him and his knowledge of how to prep for the ACT. He was also good with advice for my son about classes he should takes last year of high school and colleges that he should look at (my son tends to listen to people that he looks up to better than me). Samuel never cancelled and was always on time. He was also a great communicator with me (the mom). I only have great things to say about him! My son hasn't taken the ACT again yet so I don't know how he will do but I feel like Samuel has definitely helped him in getting ready to take it. I definitely recommend hiring him.
