ACT Math

ACT Math is a very different test from SAT Math requiring different skills and strategies. Better scores can be achieved by reviewing skills and practice. Lessons on ACT Math involve cataloging skills and practice tests.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is the critical course for building skills that you will need for everything that follows, including Geometry. When I tutor Algebra 1 students, I focus on how to study math and how to prepare for math tests.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is difficult for many students because this is the course that accelerates the pace in math. Lots of new concepts are thrown at a student and they must all be mastered without the extended time and practice that a student has seen on concepts in lower level courses. This is the course in which a student must learn how to teach himself math, rather than depending on an instructor.

Calculus

Calculus, in itself, is relatively simple. What makes a calculus course tough is that the student must be able to pull together a wide range of math knowledge, particularly precalculus and trigonometry, and apply it in this new context. There are ways to make this easier and I can show them to you.

Geometry

Having difficulty with Geometry? I did. I got an A in Algebra 1 and really struggled with Geometry. The basics of Geometry are different from Algebra and I can help you get over that hump. In addition, I've learned a number tricks that can be used to help cement your knowledge of difficult topics.

Precalculus

Precalc is Algebra 2 on steroids. Lots of topics and concepts, lots of methods, lots of tough problem solving. Any weakness that a student has in Algebra will be exposed here and must be addressed to succeed in this course. Success with this course will make Calculus a lot easier.

SAT Math

There are proven methods of preparation and practice that will significantly improve you SAT score. What are the formulas that must be memorized? What kind of questions do they ask? What tips are there for test taking? We review all these to get your math skills up and get you ready for the test.

Statistics

I particularly tutor students who are taking STA 2023. I have many worked out examples and worked out exam reviews.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry combines Algebra and Geometry in an entirely new way. This can be a fun course if you know how to approach it. I got an A in Trig and there is definitely a method that will ensure your success with it.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
