The Complete ACT Course (part I: Pre-Algebra)
This series ended on October 12, 2023. All 1:1 and group chats related to this series are disabled 7 days after the last session.
This course is designed specifically for students planning to take the ACT test and want to work on the math skills they need for it. However, students who need to revise some topics for school or are planning to take the SAT can also benefit from the course. Over the next few months, we will meet weekly to discuss all of the important math concepts and strategies you need to do well on the ACT. In every session, we will tackle a few topics. We will revise them and solve some practice questions. I will also be taking any math questions you might have throughout the session. I plan to adapt the course and the time allocated to each topic based on the needs of the students. _____________________________________________ The course will be divided into parts; each part will be placed in its corresponding subworld: 1. Pre-Algebra 2. Algebra 1 3. Geometry 4. Statistics & Probability 5. Algebra 2 6. Pre-calculus _____________________________________________ RESOURCES i USE: -The Ultimate Guide to ACT Math (1 and 2) - The Official ACT Prep Guide 2022-2023 - 500 ACT Math Questions to Know by Test Day, 3rd Edition, Geometry Common Core. - The Official ACT Mathematics Guide (This list is subject to change as I get to learn what the students need more of.) _____________________________________________ QUALIFICATIONS I got a 36 on the math ACT section in July of 2022. I have a GPA of 4.0 in pre-algebra, algebra one, geometry, and algebra 2, and calculus. I am taking AP Calculus AB this year. I am certified in geometry, pre-algebra, and algebra 1. I am gaining certification in any other relevant math topics. I have already taught this course twice before and gained experience in teaching the material and insight on how to improve it. (I also used the courses of Princeton Review, Prepscholar, and Kaplan in preparing for ACT math, in addition to books like the Ultimate Guide to ACT Math, so I have a comprehensive understanding of all the topics that should be covered.) _____________________________________________ FEEDBACK Some of the feedback I got on my previous ACT Math courses: "The practice questions were just what I needed, also the tutor was very engaging." "Thanks for making it interactive and you were really dedicated." "Very good and thorough explanations." part of a peer-review: "Excellent explanations! You went over each concept in detail and thoroughly explained how to solve the problems. You not only explained how to find the correct answer but also why a certain approach makes sense. "

About the Tutor
I am a rising senior who values education and enjoys learning and teaching! I am Jordanian, but I attend an International School in Saudi Arabia. My favorite subject at school is biology though chemistry and math are close seconds. I had a GPA of 4.0 in my junior year including an A+ in Math, which included Algebra II and Calculus. I ranked second in my junior year (my school had over 200 junior students). I have taken the ACT test twice and scored a 34 in the first trial and a 35 in the second. I have a super score of 36! I also self-studied AP Biology in 2022 and scored a 5 on the AP Biology test. However, when my school started a 2-year AP Biology program last year, I joined it because of my love for biology (and it was the most challenging biology course being offered at my school). In 2023, I took an AP Chemistry course offered by Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth because my school does not offer AP Chemistry. I received an A in the course and a 5 on the AP test! I have also taken an "Introduction to Epidemiology" course offered by UC San Diego in which I received an A+ and am currently working on a research project with the IRI of North Carolina. As to English proficiency, in addition to attending international schools since kindergarten, I have scored 119/120 on the TOEFL test in 2023. I have been tutoring at Schoolhouse for about a year now and have enjoyed tutoring and learned greatly from my experience. I hope to continue sharing my knowledge and helping others during my senior year.
