About Reimsky

I am a young college student in Miami, Computer Engineering major at FIU. I am skilled and mostly experienced in Mathematics. I also teach languages. Besides English, I speak, read, and write French, as well as (Haitian) Creole. And as a decently fluent speaker I can provide great help in academic Spanish (for a class).

After spending only 4 months in High School at North Miami Senior, I scored a 730/800 on SAT Subject test Spanish; A perfect 800/800 in French, as well as a perfect 5/5 in AP French.
I graduated from with a 3.77 unweighted GPA.

Before moving to the US, I attended the renown Institution Saint-Louis de Gonzague in my country Haiti for 6 years.

Besides math, I am also genuinely able to provide significant help in many other areas of study, such as essay writing.

I tutor people of all ages and of different backgrounds. I have been able to relate to anyone and guide to success. I am a reasonably patient person. All a student needs with me is willingness to work, learn and get better. I take pride in helping people of all ages and with different levels of knowledge get over academic obstacles. I enjoy the process of learning and getting better. I go deep into concepts and definitions to increase the understanding level. My goal is to make the student understand the concept for himself/herself.

I have helped people get satisfactory to great scores in ACT, SAT, TEAS, EOC, FLVS and significantly raise their grades in class that they were failing or barely passing. Online help is available.

Students I work with appreciate my enthusiasm, patience, professionalism, sense of commitment, my encouragement and trust of them, and how I consciously share the burden with them. These allow me to connect better with the student, in a unique way for each different, unique student. A good connection and cooperation lead my students to be more motivated to show effort, and be more eager to learn.

My schedule is very flexible.

My teaching/tutoring experience is large and dates back from even before I entered WyzAnt, but my college degree is a work in progress. Therefore, I go below the average and charge only $35 per hour. Feel free to reach out to me about anything, including rate and payments, or how the website works. In my effort to help a student as best as possible and my desire to always be on the same page as the client or parent, I am open to discussion.

I inform the student/parent before charging (only for completed lessons) so that we are always on the same page. I don't charge for a lesson unless there is reasonable agreement in place.

The first hour of lesson is free in order for the student/parent to be able to evaluate me. It is a free-of-charge opportunity to estimate how the fit is, and for me to evaluate how much I will be able to help, and assess the connection with and response of the student. No long-term commitment is required after the first lesson.

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.

ACT Math

Back in High School, I realized, and experienced the often stressful nature of ACT and SAT. Nevertheless, after taking these, I realized that it's all a matter of preparation. Many times, students are just not well enough prepared, academically and mentally, to take those tests, which are so important in their education. I thank the strong preparation that I received over years, particularly at my school in my native country Haiti, "Institution Saint Louis de Gonzague", for my success in those tests. And I want to pass on those good academic habits that I received there to my fellow young people in Miami who are trying to make those mandatory Math scores and get in college. Those habits that make you so much more efficient, that make you work and be faster, which is critical for those tests. I know how hard it can be, I experienced it and thrived through it, and I strongly believe I can help others make the same. I have done it before, I have helped several friends get over those tests and be able to get accepted in college. I want to continue to do the same because it is something I enjoy doing, and something that has always been the subject of satisfaction and appreciation for those for whom I do it.

ACT Math is one of the toughest challenges for students. But it is doable with the proper preparation. In effect, I do a lot of practice with my students, practice of ACT exercises, form different ACT guides. Also, in order to work faster – for quickness is key in ACT Math – my student will also need a bit of studying, for instance memorizing several formulas and theorems, because, as everyone knows, there is no reference sheet in the test. I also limit the use of calculator, which intends to stimulate my student’s mental calculation skills, again in order to work faster

My students also appreciate the fact that I am a young, passionate, yet experienced tutor (just in my second year of college). This, I have noticed, allows them to relate to and connect with me better, and encourages them to make effort, because they never feel that I am just another teacher. Instead they see me as the helper, the friend who will take them past the burden of college admission tests like ACT and SAT.

Algebra 1

One of my main points of emphasis in tutoring Algebra is the step-by-step process. I show my student how a good result must be gotten progressively, however fast that process might be, and also how one result leads to another. Also I try to make my students Math-savvy, by providing them with multiple ways to reach a result. This allows the student to easily get out of trouble, limits mistakes, and makes the student able to always have an alternative when a certain method taught in school is not working, or seems not to work. Also I make my students self-reflective, I encourage them to stimulate their brain. For instance, at times I like to explain to my student how a certain mathematical theory was defined, and make my student understand what led to the definition of that theory. I want my student to be smart, to feel smart, by understanding what is being done, why, how, and for what purpose. This also is a back up for the student, for it limits the opportunity to get lost. As well, this method of being practical will surely arouse the student's interest in Mathematics. I tutor the student to make Algebra make sense.

Algebra 2

I always keep in mind that if a student is seeking tutoring in Mathematics, it is because additional assistance is needed but also it might be because a different approach is needed, compared to that of the classroom, for the student to understand the subject. Therefore I emphasize certain points

1. Skills development:
I lead the student to practice, and developing math habits. That means adopting a certain approach for a certain area or problem - an approach that the student can ideally fully understand - and using that approach for every other similar problem. Algebra 2 is a relatively advanced class, and to succeed through it, the student will have to develop and improve skills.

2. Working on the concept
My ways go beyond the usual question and answer scheme of doing things. At an Algebra 2 level, it is important for the student to understand why a certain question is being answered a certain way, not just knowing how to answer. I spend a good deal of time looking at mathematical theories with students, going to the root of things. This is critical because when the student might be coming short in calculation, reasoning will be key.

3. Interactive and down-to-earth learning
In the same idea of making things practical, I try my best to apply mathematical notions to reality, and to engage the student into those applications. I lead the student to make Algebra useful.

4. Breaking down the complexity
One of the reasons why student often give up on Algebra 2 is because it seems too complex, too many things to process. I break down that complexity. For instance, if the student is struggling with equation of the second degree, I make sure equation of the first degree is mastered. This is the best way for a student to catch up, by taking the time to review the basics, not by rushing.

5. Explaining everything.
I try my best not to let the student move on in an Algebra problem, or an Algebraic notion in general without having understood every step. Many students fall behind in Algebra 2 because they came into that class with fundamental gaps. Therefore I make the subject is well circled.

6. Study involved
In order to compete, the student needs good fundamentals, know several formulas by heart, know alternative ways of solving problems, know measures etc. There will be a good part of memorization involved. It is also key.

ESL/ESOL

Being the product of ESL/ESOL education, I have come to figure out so many things about this type of education: the system, the educators, and the students. I have come to realize what the teacher could do more to develop the student but does not do, and what, so often, the student desperately needs from the teacher, but doesn’t receive in knowledge, this leading to the student falling short of success. And this I can assess because I can easily say that I worked my own way to success as an ESL/ESOL student, and out of that ESL/ESOL system. Above all, it is a psychological game where the “O” (which stands for “other”) in ESOL seems to taunt the student, making the mastering of the English language something unreachable, or something only within the reach of native English speakers. Or, else, there is the fact that the teachers sometimes, sadly, are themselves ESOL-minded individuals. Or again the fact that many teachers ignore or deny that a language already possessed can indeed help acquire another, this was true for me and for many people I know.
Therefore, I believe that my own experience will already put my potential tutee in a state of mind of success, which is key to overcome ESOL education. Also my knowledge of three other languages – French, Haitian Creole, and Spanish – gives me the possibility of working with students of diverse ethnic groups and backgrounds.

French

I am a natural French speaker. But I don't only master the speaking aspect of that beautiful and nifty language, I have also studied its reading and writing at the highest level. Having attended "Institut La Seve" for nine years and "Institution St. Louis de Gonzague" for six years and having always been one of the top students in French in all my years at those schools - which are two of the very best in my native country Haiti - I needed no more to thrive through tests such as SAT Subject Test French and AP French, where I respectively obtained scores of 800/800 and 5/5.

Moreover, I also contend that I can easily pass on that language to someone else because I have myself been subject to the learning of a foreign language, and through this process, I have detected many common difficulties in learning that new language, whether it's for personal or academic reasons.

Geometry

I see Geometry as the part where a student finally applies the many notions learned in other fields of mathematics. Therefore it is important first that the student be sound enough in algebra in order to succeed in Geometry. If the algebra base is not there, or is shaky, I will work with the student in developing those skills, which will allow success in geometry.

Once those calculation skills are there, or in progress, then we can focus on making sense of geometry, and going deeper into the matter. It is very important for me that the student understands why we are using this or that method to resolve a Geometry problem.

When someone actually understands why this or that is being done, this is like a safety box in case something theoretical is forgotten. I will take the student to the point where he or she fully understands what's happening in geometry, in order to go beyond the status of just applying formulas.

Grammar

My objective in grammar is to make my student adopt good habits and generate valuable knowledge and skills by following rules, which will lead to academic success. This requires regular and rigorous practice, and willingness to know, and respect those rules, and also an understanding that applying those rules will make the student better and bring much better results in school. I have valuable experienced tutoring grammar and I can guarantee that having the first days of those rigorous practices, the student will come to accept those habits and rules as if they were second nature and appreciate how better they make him or her. And "second nature" means that this goes beyond writing, and beyond school environment.

Microsoft Windows

I am very able to help with Windows 7. I can teach how to save files properly, how to create and organize folders, how to monitor and control what is on the computer. I can teach you how to keep a Windows 7 computer safe without having to spend extra money. I can teach you how to browse the internet efficiently and safely and how to avoid viruses and other internet hacks.

My overall goal is to put the owner of the computer in control of the computer. You will know what files and programs are on it and know how to use them efficiently (without losing much time completing commands).

I can also teach you how to monitor different accounts on the computer, how to install connected devices and connect the computer to other devices, how to personalize the computer and make it feel yours. etc.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is constant discovery, discovery of how more efficient and faster one can get time and time again, with formatting text and even other content. And I have been discovering for years now. It is a program that I am much passionate about and for which I have very decent knowledge and skills. In using Word, skill is one of the most important things to work faster and better. What I call "skills" are those little tricks that can only been figured out with certain experience, and just mere exploration. I have plenty of these and want to pass them on to others, if anyone ever needs help in that program.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is one of my subjects of excellence, probably because Middle School students are the ones I am most accustomed to as of today.

Studying Prealgebra is the point where nothing must be rushed, made complicated, or mystified. On the contrary, everything must be decoded and simplified, made practical. A certain way, it must look, or at least feel easy for the student. Because when Prealgebra does not feel easy, then Algebra will feel hard. The way to make it feel easy, instead of out of reach, is by developing good habits, by following small academic principles, adopting behaviors that will bring much better improvement. For instance, one thing that I fight a lot is unnecessary use of calculator. Prealgebra is the point where the student has to maximize his or her brain activity, which, added to solid and steady practice, will develop great skills, which in turn will lead my student to function much faster and more efficiently. It is the point where the student has to become Math-savvy, in order to be ready for Algebra, and make Algebra itself look easy.

Proofreading

There is no writing without proofreading. It is just that essential. One non-common, yet very effective way that I practice proofreading with my student is by making the student proofread the first time by himself and herself, and develop the habit of proofreading, or having a proofreading attitude, as he or she is writing. The best way to improve is by finding and recognized one's own mistakes. It is something that student very often fail to do, and that I assist them well in doing, for when they do it, they get so much better. Thereafter, I proofread alongside them, always alongside them, using my own writing skills and experience, and making sure that my student understands well every correction that is made, and incorporate it as an element of palpable improvement.

SAT Math

I realized, and experienced the often stressful nature of ACT and SAT. Nevertheless, after taking these, I realized that it's all a matter of preparation. Many times, students are just not well enough prepared, academically and mentally, to take those tests, which are so important in their education. In order to deal with that, I want to pass on those good academic habits that I received over my scholastic career to fellow young people in Miami and the surroundings who are trying to make the leap and get those scores. These are habits that make you much more efficient, that make you work and be faster, which is critical for those tests. I know how hard it can be, I experienced it and thrived through it, and I strongly believe I can help others do the same. I have done it before, I have helped many get over those tests and be able to get accepted in college. I want to continue to do the same because it is something I enjoy doing, and something that has always been the subject of satisfaction and appreciation for those for whom I do it.

My students also appreciate the fact that I am a young, passionate, yet experienced tutor. This, I have noticed, allows them to relate to and connect with me better, and encourages more them to make effort, because they never feel that I am just another teacher. Instead they see me as the helper, the friend who will take them past the burden of college admission tests like ACT and SAT.

Spanish

I have studied Spanish for five years, during which my instructors have always put much emphasis on the very complex, yet stylish, syntax of the language, as well as its reading and writing. It is such unwavering basis that allowed me to get a score of 730/800 in SAT Subject Test - Spanish, which surprised many people, especially my many Hispanic friends in Miami for such score, even among natural speakers of the language - including those who even immigrated to the US from a Hispanic country - is not common. This proves how important a good education and preparation on the grammar of Spanish is, especially for a student taking a Spanish class. I believe, then, that I am more than suitable to assist someone taking Spanish classes in school.

Spelling

I have experience in working on word spelling with kids. And thanks to my experience and my familiarity with elementary and middle school students, I have developed my own tactics, which, as of today, have only made my students better, and led them to make progress much faster.

Vocabulary

Proper vocabulary is an inevitable factor to good writing and respectable speaking. With me as an assistant, the student will be able to practice this, until it becomes second nature. The student will be able to establish similarity, familiarity, opposition and differences between words and phrases, and know what to use when. My tutoring experience, familiarity with difficulties students often encounter in Vocabulary assignments, and over solid academic performance, will ease my student to success.

Writing

Competent writing is one of those tasks that a well prepared student has to be able to do and whose lack can cause a lot of trouble, regardless of that student's subjects of emphasis. Writing is a process and sample, a simple sample. And it is with the regular practice of following that sample that a student gets a better, progressively, but also with paying attention to little details. It starts from a word to a sentence to a paragraph to a text. This is how top quality writing is obtained, and it is at the reach of everybody. I will be more than happy to make them realize that.
