If the student will meet me at my house the rate will be $50 per hour. If there are 3 or more students the rate will be $25 per student per hour.
Paul used a number of tools to quickly zero in on my son's weaknesses and develop a plan to strengthen those weaknesses while developing additional skills required for the SAT test. He's working one-on-one with my son and he has given great advice on ways to assist him and make the lessons more productive. My son has given positive feedback as to how the lessons are progressing, and I can monitor much of his progress and limitations in the online tools Paul uses. He's easy to communicate with and goes the extra mile to make sure the parent knows what is happening with the sessions and the student's progress.
Paul has been great. We were in a unique position where my daughter was in danger of being dropped from her class due to her grade and he jumped right in and got to work. He has been supportive and there when we needed him. I would highly recommend him to anyone. She has a B in the class now and moving up.
My 15 year old son had been struggling in Algebra all year and was showing signs of giving up. Within minutes, Paul was able to determine the best way to approach and connect with my son. By the end of our first session, Paul had identified his weaknesses and discussed a plan to get him back on track. I'm feeling encouraged for the first time in a long time.
Paul is dependable, available on short notice and loves tutoring, which shows in his work. My kids clicked with him and he is great tutor.
Coach M. has been an excellent tutor for my daughter! He is not just tutoring math, but also showing her how it all ties in to her future goals. Despite the difficult personality of a 16 year old girl, he has been nothing but patient. He encourages her to challenge herself. We look forward to continuing to work with him.
We find Paul to be an exceptional tutor. He is patient, thorough, and enthusiastic about the subject matter. We are very happy with the relationship.
Great one-on-one tutor. Explains concepts in great detail and worked on my weaknesses. Provides me with testing material to identify concepts that I am strong or weak in.
Paul is nothing but helpful. He gives great advice, is punctual, and determined to help you learn! Very highly recommended. He provides you with work throughout the week and he follows up with you to make sure it gets done. He is patient and gives you the time needed to figure out the problems.
Paul has been very professional since I started working with him. He returned my message the same evening I wrote him about starting tutoring and we met for our first session just a few days later. He's always on time and prepared with materials to go over, he clearly preps for his lessons and takes the time to look at the areas that you need work on. He also uses a great online program, this has been awesome for me, allowing me to work on it when I can and providing me with tools for when I get stuck, such as instructional videos. I think Paul has been the most help for me as he is giving the materials and subjects that I need to focus on, instead of me blindly studying in a higgledy piggledy manner.
I've had such an amazing experience with Paul. He is absolutely wonderful at what he does. I have learned so much with him in the time he has been tutoring me so far. He is patient and understanding. I can tell he really cares whether I understand something or not and will adjust his teaching approach in a way that I can understand it, which is a great help.
My daughter had been having problems with her college math. Fortunately, we met Paul, and we were extremely happy with his professionalism. He is by far the best math tutor my daughter had ever had. His teaching techniques makes the subject easy to understand. If you are interested in someone who is an excellent tutor, who will dedicate every single minute to your child's learning. I strongly recommend Paul.
Paul has been an amazing resource for geometry. He is able to integrate more than one resource to teach. It is extremely convenient to have an online tutoring session versus meeting at a designated location. This makes a session incredibly flexible time wise.
When not tutoring directly online with my son, he is also able to coach and hand out assignments and further teach and review work. My son has found him to be able to explain clearly and with patience. We have been very fortunate to find Paul.
Paul is a great coach he keeps my son involved and focused. He also keeps me informed with emails and text messages. I appreciate his help greatly.
Paul has been tutoring my son for the ASVAB and he is already seeing improvements in his scores just after two lessons. Paul went to great lengths to emphasize the importance of repetition of problems outside of tutor time and helped my son learn to pick out key words in the questions. He is tutoring in core subject knowledge but also teaches test taking skills which is equally important. This is a skill many tutors ignore yet affects 50% of test grade! Great tutor --- highly recommended!!
Paul is an excellent tutor. Not only he know the subject very well, but he also knows about the exam requirements and procedures. He is genuinely interested in you succeeding at your set goals by close monitoring your work online and sending you emails and texts to get going! Highly recommended!!!
Coach M. is an excellent instructor. He has a plan of action, sets realistic goals, and encourages while providing a strategic lesson plan. My son has had two sessions and so far he has been comfortable with Coach M.'s approach. He has patience which is a must with tutoring. We look forward to continue with Coach M. I am sure that he will rebuild my son's confidence level academically.
Coach Paul is everything a tutor should be - knowledgeable, always prepared, encouraging, and motivating. He truly teaches and cares about my son's success. What I appreciate most is that he provides supplemental material for extra practice, and he monitors progress. I wish I had found him sooner!
Paul was hired to work with my client who has learning disabilities, The student likes Paul and is encouraged to perform his tasks. I would recommend Paul to any parent or prospective student.
We have been very impressed with Paul's teaching style. Paul is well versed in various methods to gain better comprehension. My daughter's grades have improved significantly under Paul's tutelage. He is a very positive person and creates a learning environment to not just do well on tests but to truly understand the subject matter. I would strongly endorse Paul as a tutor.
Paul was a good tutor. He was very helpful, and sincerely concerned with my success. He followed up with me and provided me with extra material to help me study and understand the subject.
Coach Paul M. is Great, he cares a lot. He motivates you to be better. He's not the kind that's here just for the money, he's not a clock Watcher. Yesterday was my first day working with him and I starts to see a lot of changes on me with my Math Skills. He knows what my weakness are and he works on it so I can be better. He gives you homework to make you improve. He has a lot of skills with Asvab. Coach Paul M. is the BEST.
My son had a "D" average after completing approximately 1/3 of his College Algebra 1 class. It became apparent to me that without immediate assistance he would fail the course.
Fortunately, we were able to hire Paul, who proved to be an outstanding tutor. Paul was able to effectively teach the concepts that my son had difficulty grasping in class. He provided problems and homework that properly prepared by son for his upcoming tests. Most importantly, Paul was an effective coach, instilling confidence in my son and motivating him to succeed.
My son made "A"s on almost every quiz and test he took after he started working with Paul and finished with a high "B" average for the course. I am certain that if Paul had started working with him just one week sooner, my son would have made an "A".
I plan to hire Paul again should my son need assistance with any of his future college math courses.
As the title says, Paul truly is a great tutor. From before we even had our first session he was already trying his best to gather information so that he could accurately assist me in my tutoring session. I am being tutored in Discrete Math which is a very difficult course but Paul has been great at trying to help me understand the material (such as sending me helpful links and providing me with helpful PowerPoint slides with notes) I would totally recommend Paul as a tutor as you will definitely get your moneys worth and have a helpful tutor who truly cares and wants you to understand the material.
Coach M. has been an incredible tutor, I'm amazed by the way he personalizes the work specifically for my individual needs, he goes above and beyond in one hour of teaching. He uses innovative methods that makes difficult work seem very easy.
He has excellent asvab knowledge. With his effective way of teaching he has inspired me to study, And work harder towards my goal.
It's too early to see any performance changes with my son but I have to say that this tutor is probably the most professional one I've ever hired for my son. I think his method of using a third party to track progress of my son's math skills improvement versus just giving a subjective analysis is great. He's on time, communicates and is serious about getting the work done. Not necessarily a clock watcher. Although he is more expensive than most tutors on here, I'm from the school that you get what you pay for and so far I'm liking what I see. Definitely worth your initial interview.
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.
I have a course for a student who just wants test taking tips and that is 3 weeks at 3 times per week. This is for the student who needs a little math review and more on standardized test taking skills review.
For the student who needs more math review I have a 6 - 12 week program at 3 times per week. The total time each week should be 3 hours per week. As the testing deadline approaches we will meet less but each meeting will be for a longer duration.
Factoring is the main emphasis after Prealgebra concerns. Prerequisites include solving 1 and 2 step linear equations; adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers; combining like terms; the Order of Operations.
Prerequisites include factoring; solving 1 and 2 step linear equations; adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers; combining like terms; the order of operations.
Algebra 2 success requires the mastery of solving quadratics by 3 methods: factoring, complete the square, and the quadratic formula
The most difficult area for students is Conic Sections and this is where the knowledge of solving quadratics by factoring and completing the square becomes most important. Mastery of radicals and complex numbers is the final step to Algebra success and successful SAT preparation
For the student who needs more math review I have a 6 week program at 3 times per week. The ASVAB math portion isn't particularly long but the entire test will take 3+ hours. We will practice longer if scheduling permits.
I am a very successful basketball coach with college and high school experience. My areas of expertise for individual development include shooting and ball handling. I have worked with over 5000 young people in the last 15 years and have helped make the top players in Dade and Broward County better.
The topics that most students need help on are LHopitals, Limits, and The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. I will make those subjects simpler so that they can progress to the Derivatives and Integrals of advanced calculus.
Discrete Math is the study of math concepts that apply to non continuous functions. I have taught the entire course at school and I have taught all of the Discrete Math Courses separately for more than 10 years.
The following are the topics most often found in Discrete Math Text Books: Set theory, Graph theory, Probability, Number theory, Algebra, Calculus of finite differences, discrete calculus or discrete analysis, Geometry, Topology, Game theory, decision theory, utility theory, and social choice theory.
With all of the interesting topics this is one the more "fun" math courses.
I have extensive knowledge in math but I am well versed in reading and writing through grade 6. My specialty is motivating younger children to work at math until the success becomes contagious. My program for elementary combines math with exercise and sports. I have had success with all levels of students who have participated. I call this program the MRS (Math. Reading. Sports Program.). The summer is a great time to get caught up to or get ahead of grade level.
The emphasis on grades through 2nd is add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers. Speed will be a factor in mastery of 1 and 2 column whole numbers. Mastery is considered 95% accuracy with the required speed.
Grades 3 - 5 the emphasis will be on catching up to those skills and mastering new skills that include fractions, decimals, and the order of operations. Mastery is considered 95%.
Finite math is very similar to Math modelling which is the act of creating functions or equations that describe a given application or situation. Finite Math also has Matrix Algebra, Probability, Statistics, and logic. I have taught or tutored these disciplines for 15 years. I am expert in all of these areas and look forward to tutoring students in these math topics.
I was a fitness instructor in the US Marines for 4 years. After my discharge, I developed a civilian exercise program based on US Marine Corps Fitness standards. I have since developed a S.P.E.A.D. program for elite athletes. I have successfully trained young athletes who have developed in collegiate and professional athletes.
The basics of an education can be achieved by anyone eager to succeed in life. Arithmetic and grammar are the first building blocks. Algebra and vocabulary are next on the list. To get to the level needed to pass the GED we will need a minimum of 3 solid weeks either face to face or on line.
Plane Euclidean Geometry is best described as a following directions course. If you don't understand the directions, ask the question again and again until you understand the direction. Euclidean Geometry is also a logic course that forces one to think logically. The emphasis will be on understanding the logic components of geometry and applying the theorems/postulates/corollaries to real world problems.
The GRE will be the next step for your professional development. With Preparation, Organization, and Practice we will ensure our success on the exam. My expertise is in math but I am also proficient in the Verbal and Analytical Writing portions. Let's get together and map out your plan for success.
Prealgebra concerns include the quick and accurate application of arithmetic to real numbers. Topics for Prealgebra include Solving 1 and 2 Step Linear equations; adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers; combining like terms; The Order of Operations.
My PSAT student preparation success has a track record of success that is 8 years long. I have worked with students of differing abilities and I have helped account for a 17% increase in math on the average in com[paring practice test results with actual PSAT performance. The last component for PSAT success is the practice. I have developed several strategies and procedures that will allow any parent a quick follow up and follow through. This follow through will help improve the veracity and the tenacity of the practice.
My SAT preparation success is derived from three parts. Preparation is the first part. This includes but is not limited to showing up on time. Organization is the next part, without the organizational skills needed to prepare for the test makes it very challenging for a student to score their best. Last is practice. I have a slew of remedies and quick follow up procedures that will help improve the veracity and the tenacity of the practice.
My name is Paul M. I graduated from college in 3 years with a double major in Math and Psychology. I was a Magna Cum Laude graduate as an undergrad while playing basketball for an NCAA National Champion. My oldest son graduated in the top 1% of his class while being a 4 year starter in basketball at the varsity level. He is on track to have his undergraduate degree in 3 years and his Master's in 4. I have the ability to achieve and the knowledge to teach others how to learn.
I have been working with athletes for 15 years to help them improve their running and jumping abilities. I started a program called the S.P.E.A.D. S stands for speed; P is for power; E is for explosiveness; A is for acceleration; D is for discipline. The summer is the time we make athletes better. My program combines weight lifting, plyometrics, and sprint training. Come join us for a workout.
