Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have extensive experience helping students master the foundations of algebra. I work with students using a variety of approaches, including concrete work with manipulatives or pictoral representations when needed to explain the symbolic reasoning involved.

Algebra 2

I enjoy helping students develop a strong understanding of algebra. I try to make things as visual as possible, particularly when working with linear and quadratic equations. I also help students understand the differences between quadratic and exponential equations.

Geometry

I have a lot of experience teaching and tutoring geometry. I like making the topics as visual as possible. I also help students make the connections between geometry and algebra when needed.

Prealgebra

I have extensive classroom experience teaching pre-algebra. I know how to break a topic down into smaller steps and concepts and to figure out which elements the student does and doesn't understand. I also have experience using concrete manipulatives and pictoral representations when helpful.

Precalculus

I have experience helping students master concepts such as factoring, imaginary numbers, and exponential equations. I am able to break things down and to figure out where exactly a student is struggling. I am able to make connections where needed between algebra, geometry, and trigonometry.

Reading

As a classroom teacher, I have seen how important literacy is in all subjects. I have experience separating decoding issues from struggles with vocabulary and comprehension. I have attended numerous Teachers College training sessions on teaching reading and have had experience implementing these ideas in my classroom.

Spanish

I am fluent in Spanish and spent part of my undergraduate years living and studying in Latin America. My senior thesis involved conducting interviews entirely in Spanish in Nicaragua.

Trigonometry

I have students reconstruct the unit circle so they fully understand it. I also use a lot of visual models to show the relationships between the sides and angles of a triangle and the trigonometric identities. Finally, I help students make connections between algebra and solving trigonometric equations.
