About

Hi! I'm Jacob and I'm a graduate of the University of Texas with a degree in Economics. If you're looking for ACT/SAT prep, I help students understand their strengths, develop their weaknesses, and prepare through test day. I used the strategies I teach to go from a slightly above average baseline, to scoring in the top 2% on the ACT, helping me get into the selective colleges I applied to.

Depending on your timeline, I recommend one session a week (3+ months before test day) and two sessions if it's closer to crunch time. As I currently work full time in finance, I'm available after 6:30pm Monday-Friday and at your convenience Saturday or Sunday to help you or your student succeed.

    Frequently asked questions

    When working with a new student, I like to either have the student take a baseline or share their previous test results, then help them understand which types of questions they struggle with and why.  After the initial session or two, students will have practice problems that address the areas they need work in, and we'll review the best ways for them to address the problems and arrive at the answers.

    I have a BA from the University of Texas in Economics, with a minor in Government, and recieved a 32 on the ACT after using the strategies I teach.  

    My pricing system is $50 for an initial 45 minute-1 hour session, then $50/hour for review and prep sessions after.  Typically I recommend 1 session a week, with the remaining time between sessions dedicated to practice problems.

    I would advise students, no matter who they hire, to look for a teacher that will help them with strategies for test taking as well as have the knowledge and expertise to guide them through addressing the problems.
