9 Years of Tutoring for the ACT, SAT, LSAT, GMAT, GRE, & MCAT Tests
Bobby Hood is an online tutor for the ACT, SAT, LSAT, GMAT, GRE, and MCAT (CARS) tests. He focuses on critical thinking and a mindful approach to standardized testing that helps students quickly and efficiently move to their highest potential scores.
Bobby was the valedictorian of Lake Highlands High School, in Dallas, Texas, and was a National Merit Finalist, scoring 800 Math and 790 Verbal on the SAT and 35 on the ACT. He attended TCU in Fort Worth, Texas, on a full-tuition scholarship.
In college, Bobby earned a bachelor’s degree in Accounting. After graduating, Bobby worked for two years as a C.P.A., then attended The University of Texas School of Law on a full-tuition scholarship. Bobby practiced municipal bond law for over ten years, with a focus on sports facilities (including the financing of Cowboys Stadium, Yankee Stadium, and the Jets/Giants Stadium).
In 2011, Bobby returned to his original passion for teaching, and now tutors students for the SAT, ACT, LSAT, GMAT, GRE, and MCAT CARS (Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills) tests. Most of his tutoring is done online (even his local Austin students typically choose to do sessions online, perhaps due to Bobby’s mellifluous radio voice?).
