EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION is at the heart of teaching. A deep knowledge of the subject matter must be there BUT if all you are is good in math you're not a teacher!

I am a retired math teacher from the Rochester, New York area. I have taught at the middle school, high school and college level. My strength is being able to explain the concepts of math in everyday terms. People tell me all the time "Why didn't they just say that??".

I have taught everything from adding fractions to calculus II. At the local community college in Rochester, I was always at the top of the student surveys. One year 100% of my college students recommended me. If I accept you as a pupil, I am willing to GUARANTEE you will see an improvement in your grade.

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

Algebra 1 is the foundation for the math courses that follow. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts presented not merely “get the answer.” I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 delves deeper into the concepts and skills introduced in Algebra 1 as well as introducing analytical geometry. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts presented not merely “get the answer.” I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!

Calculus

Calculus I is primarily concerned with understanding the idea of a derivative, techniques of derivation and applications of derivatives. Calculus 2 covers integration in the same manner. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts presented not merely “get the answer.” I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!

Geometry

Geometry uses some different skills from those used in algebra. Some of those skills are memorization and presenting concise arguments. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts presented not merely “get the answer.” I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!

Prealgebra

Pre-Algebra is a basic skills course which includes factoring and set theory. I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!

Precalculus

Precalculus reviews concepts and skills introduced in Algebra 2 and introduces students to exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences, and series. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts presented not merely “get the answer.” I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!

Trigonometry

Trigonometry requires familiarity with the unit circle along with skills used in algebra. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts presented not merely “get the answer.” I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!
