**Maximize ACT Math****looks like the perfect guide to improve your math score. What can you tell us about it?**

** **

There is no book like it. It teaches students how to master every standardized math concept, specifically, the Math ACT. In the front is a one-page formula/cheat sheet that covers every formula needed to ace the test. The book is broken down into 8 overall topics (units) with 51 subtopics (Chapters). Each chapter question is rated by level of difficulty from 1-10 by color. The book has detailed color coded solutions.

**How long did it take you to write Maximize ACT Math?**

** **

15 years. Way too many hours.

**What inspired you when writing Maximize ACT Math?**

** **

I actually didn’t plan to write the book at first. I was putting together hand-written packets of different topics to help my students ace their standardized math tests. I kept adding new packets and decided at some point to make it a book.

**What will readers get out of your book?**

** **

This is a one of a kind book that covers every important topic on the ACT Math. Each topic is taught in detail. Students will maximize their ACT Math Score.

**What is some of the feedback you are getting from readers?**

** **

They love how they can learn the test by learning one concept at a time. They like that each question has different difficulty levels, and they love the color. Not the ordinary black and white books they usually read for standardized test taking.

**How did you come up with the ideas and match problems in Maximize ACT Math?**

** **

I love making up my own questions. Sometimes, they may be a little funny. In one question in the book, a smiley face is rotated 180 degrees. One of the answer choices has a sad face. This happened by accident, when I tried to rotate the figure, I accidentally changed the smiley face to sad and had to keep it. Also, I included my student’s names, some funny names, and some names of my friends and family in the questions. I used a bit of alliteration just because.

**Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Maximize ACT Math?**

** **

I kept changing the topics, the names, adding, subtracting. Word was a monster to use when drawing diagrams. I would move one thing and everything else would move with it. Formatting was horrible. Also, I was writing an SAT book originally but in midstream they changed the SAT. I had too much invested at that point so I converted the book into an ACT Math book.

**Can you tell us a little about your background?**

** **

My education is from The University of Florida. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Statistics and an Interdisciplinary Certificate in Actuarial Science. I founded the original SAT/ACT Boot Camp with the City of Coral Springs, Florida in 2004. I have been a full-time math tutor for over 20 years. I have helped my students get into the most prestigious schools in the country.

**Where can readers find out more about your work?**

** **

I have a website. Not much info about the book yet on there. Besides my intro in my book, this is the most I’ve written about it. I probably need to
