The ACT Reading section consists of four passages, three of which can be effectively skimmed for content. I teach your student how to ask "SO WHAT?" while reading which will allow them to quickly and reliably determine the author's message. I also show them how to abuse the author's punctuation to get a faster sense of the purpose of a paragraph. When they read in this manner, they are more prepared to answer the questions and spend less time searching for the necessary information. Each student is given a binder which will archive all of the exams taken and catalog the errors they've made with specific notes about the topic like "primary purpose" or "rhetorical goal of a paragraph" instead of broad generalizations made by many other tutoring companies. Lessons are given on the topics with which they struggle most and additional assignments are provided to ensure they retain and can use the information they've been given. Their progress can be tracked over time, and their score progression can be a very rewarding sign of their progress!
Emily, Irvington, NY When my son met Daniel, he was considering dropping his math honors class since he had been struggling with some of the work, but shortly after Daniel started the sessions (maybe 4 or 5) my son regained his confidence and continued in his honors Algebra 2 & Trig. class achieving an A average!! My son is totally convinced that Daniel has made all the difference. Also, I'm very impressed with the way Daniel was able to recognize my son's weaknesses and help him overcome them. He is passionate about teaching and truly cares about his students. I am very pleased with his commitment and professionalism. Thank you Daniel for all your amazing help!!
