My expertise in tutoring mathematics results from me being a life- long math learner. My qualifications include a BS degree in Mathematics from City University of New York, a MEd degree in Math/ Education from Cambridge College, and a Teacher's Certificate in Education from Mico Teachers' College. Additionally, I am a Florida State certified K-12 Math teacher.

I specialize in tutoring math for success in school, colllege, and on the SAT, GED, GRE, GMAT, and the FCAT exams. My goal is to make math concepts as simple and interesting as possible so that my students will gain confidence, acquire math skills, and thereby improve their grades. Each lesson will involve explanation, reading and analyzing, translating word problems, guided solutions, and then reinforcement of the covered material by quizzes.

I have over 40 years of experience in teaching and tutoring mathematics to students of all ages. My students achieve success because each student's learning style is being taken into consideration and addressed. I tutor students in the setting most convenient for them whether it is in their homes or at a public place.

For better learning outcomes, I do ask for feedback. I will never bill for a lesson for which the student or parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring. While I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, I do offer make up classes.

I look forward to hearing from you, and to help you to achieve success in your studies.

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 taught Algebra 1 for many years. My Algebra 1 students do achieve excellent grades. I strive to get the students to think and to reason in concrete terms rather than in the abstraction of Algebra.

Algebra 2

I strive to help students overcome their difficulties in translating word problems into algebraic expressions and sentences. I have the students analyze the given algebra problem in order for them to understand what is given, and what is being asked for, and then to look for given clues that will aid in the solution of the problem. Quizzes are given to reinforce the lessons taught. Homework is assigned at the end of each lesson.

Differential Equations

I have a BS degree in Mathematics and a MEd in Math/ Education. I have taken courses in Differential Equations covering Equations of Order One, Linear Differential Equations, Linear Equations with Constant Coefficients, Nonhomogeneous Equations, The Laplace Transforms, and Inverse Transforms. For many years, I have both taught and tutored Differential Equations.

Geometry

With a BS degree in mathematics and a MEd in math/education, I am well qualified to teach and tutor geometry courses both at the high school and college levels. I have taught and tutored geometry for more than 40 years. During my years of teaching and tutoring this subject, I patiently helped my students to have a better understanding of the various geometry concepts.

Linear Algebra

I have a BS in mathematics and a MEd in math/education. In my math studies, I covered extensive course work in matrices, vectors, inner product spaces, linear transformations, bases, eigenvectors, eigenvalues, and diagonalization. I have taught and tutored linear algebra to many satisfied college students.

Logic

I have a BS in mathematics and a MEd in math/education. Symbolic Logic is a component of the curricula for liberal arts math 1, and liberal arts math 2; both of which I have taught and tutored for many years. I have helped my students to apply the rules of Logic to evaluate whether arguments are valid or invalid.

Prealgebra

I have two degrees in mathematics. For many years, I have taught and tutored prealgebra to students with different learning styles. In order to help students to master the basic concepts of prealgebra, I engage them in discussions, guided solutions, application through practice, and quizzes.

Precalculus

I have a BS degree in Mathematics and a MEd in Math/ Education. I am also a certified Florida K-12 math teacher. I both teach and tutor Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and Trigonometry which are the components of the Precalculus Curriculum.

Statistics

With a BS in Mathematics and an MEd in Math/ Education, I am qualified to teach Statistics. I have taught and tutored Statistics for many years. During my years of teaching and tutoring this subject, I have helped my students to understand the underlying principles, concepts, and applicable formulas of this seemingly difficult subject.

Trigonometry

With a BS in mathematics and a MEd in Math/Education, I am well qualified to teach and tutor trigonometry. I have taught and tutored trigonometry for many years. I have taught trigonometry both as an independent course, and as a component of calculus and precalculus.
