Isaac is a math expert. He’s scored perfectly on the SATs and ACTs, several times over (we make him take it every year just for fun). Isaac has a rare talent for simplifying and explaining uber-complex math and science concepts in a way that high school students can understand. Throughout the last 9 years of teaching summer boot camps, Isaac has helped hundreds of students improve their ACT score by 5 points or more. Isaac is a masterful BC Calculus and Math IIC tutor, but he is absolutely THE MAN when it comes to ACT prep. Ask anyone in town!
