ACT Test guru. I don't give you a fish; I teach you to fish. Success in the ACT is all about strategy. I am a master of teaching strategy. My ''tutees'' have improved their cumulative scores up t

Methodology

I hold an earned doctorate, and have recently retired from four decades of teaching everything from emotionally disturbed Kindergarteners through graduate school, and everything in between.

I am a member of Mensa, the high-IQ society. Since 2010 I have served as a judge at the Ohio State Science fair.

My Masters is in what used to be called Learning Disabilities, and is now known as ADD/AHHD.

My special interest is in what is known as ''twice-exceptional,'' children who are highly gifted in one area but score very low in another.

Background

I've been tutoring for the ACT test since 2014, with superior results.

Several dozen of my students have performed admirably on the ACT test. Several ''tutees'' have raised their composite scores by six points.

I teach strategy, not ''fact cramming.''

Four decades of teaching have given me an outstanding foundation for helping young people to achieve their goals.
