SAT, ACT Tutoring and College Resume and Admissions Help. Cornell University Graduate. Pompano Beach, Florida

Methodology

I am a Cornell University graduate who specializes in helping students with ACT and SAT Prep as well as college admissions essays and resumes. I have previously worked as a tutor for ACT/SAT prep and as a resume builder for both students and professionals. I am extremely compassionate and work with students to reach their highest potential in any way I can. My method is teaching test taking strategies first, then diving deeper into problematic areas for students.

Background

I have been giving lessons to students since April 2016 and have tutored over 35 students, with an average score raise of 4 points on the ACT and 100 points per section on the SAT. While at Cornell University, I was a tour guide who gave over 90 tours to prospective students and parents, giving them information about the University and answering any questions they had.

I scored a 2120 on the SATs (out of 2400 with a 1460 composite) an 800 on the US History SAT II, 790 on World History SAT II, 720 on the Biology SAT II and 710 on the Math SAT II. I was an AP scholar with distinction and I have a lot of experience with standardized tests.

Zachary's resume

I have a Bachelors in Science in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University. While at Cornell, I wrote for the Cornell Daily Sun (the #1 college newspaper in the country) and won the Rookie Writer of the Year award for my contributions. I also had the pleasure of being a tour guide (a position with a 5-8% acceptance rate) and gave over 90 tours to prospective students and parents. I mentored younger tour guides in this position and was the direct point of contact for everyone who reached out to the University.

Regarding my SAT/ACT experience, I have tutored over 35 students who saw a marked increase from their previous scores. I try to teach test taking strategies first and then go deeper into subject material after properly diagnosing problem areas. I have also worked with plenty of students and professionals on their resume, with the intention of getting them into a top-tier school or vocation.
