Patient, creative and equipped to tutor homeschooled, middle school, and high-school students, as well as college students who just need a little remedial math help to facilitate their college mathematics.

Adept at helping your understanding of geometry. Geometry is the branch of mathematics concerned with shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space.

With over 20 years of development, design and manufacturing engineering, a masters degree in Engineering and Applied Sciences from the University of Rochester, and certified to teach 6-12 mathematics with ESOL endorsement, I continue my success in improving my students’ knowledge and understanding of mathematics.

My first successful career was built on an application of the math and science theories that I studied during my undergraduate and graduate studies. Now with my deep understanding and proof of math and science, I am able to enrich my students with this integration of the theory and application of math.

My success has opened many doors for me, allow me to help you in experiencing even greater successes.

Test Preparation:
ACT Math,
SAT Math

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.

ACT Math

How ready are you for the ACT Mathematics Test? There are three sub-scores that are based on six content areas: pre-algebra (23%), elementary algebra (17%), intermediate algebra (15%), coordinate geometry (15%), plane geometry (23%), and trigonometry (17%).

Request Mr H, with any area of need, and he will get you ready.

Algebra 1

In Algebra 1 "Mr H" will help you to better understand how to use the rules of arithmetic to solve a variety of equations. You will learn how to draw graphs of straight lines and parabolas. You will learn about the shapes of graphs for many types of equations. Algebra 1 also includes some statistics and probability and a small amount of geometry.
Here are the modules for which you may need my support:
-Expressions
-Positive and Negative Numbers
-Solving equations
-Solving inequalities
-Relations and functions
-Linear equations
-Polynomials
-Factoring
-Systems of equations
-Data analysis
-Radicals
Please let me know.

Algebra 2

Studying Algebra II, with “Mr H” will make math come alive with its many intriguing examples of algebra in the world around you, from sports to theater lighting to space exploration. You are going to boost your understanding about Numbers, Polynomials, Inequalities, Sequences and Sums, many types of Functions, and how to solve them.
With your new skills you will be able to ace your Algebra II exams. Here are topics for which you may want to hone your skills:
-Equations and inequalities
-Linear equations and functions
-System of linear equations and inequalities
-Matrices and Determinants
-Quadratic functions
-Polynomials and polynomial functions
-Powers roots and radicals
-Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
-Rational Equations and Functions
-Quadratic Relations and Conic Sections
-Analytical Geometry
-Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
-Sequence and Series
-Probability and statistics
-Trigonometric ratios, functions, graphs, identities and equations
How may I help you?

Geometry

Geometry (… shapes and their properties)
If you can draw you can do geometry, if not “Mr H” will teach you.

Analytic geometry is just a fancy name for graphing. You probably did plenty of it in algebra. It is a handy way to deal with equations.

Plane Euclidean Geometry is all about shapes like lines, circles and triangles ... shapes that can be drawn on a flat surface called a Plane (it is like on an endless piece of paper).

If you know the coordinates of two or more points “Mr H” will show you how to:
-Determine the distance between them
-Find the midpoint, slope and equation of a line segment
-Determine if lines are parallel or perpendicular
-Find the area and perimeter of a polygon defined by the points
-Transform a shape by moving, rotating and reflecting it
-Define the equations of curves, circles and ellipses

Solid geometry is the geometry of three-dimensional space, the kind of space we live in. Examples of 3D are cubes, poly-hydra, prisms and pyramids.

If you need to be better at any of these topics:
-Essentials or Basics of Geometry
-Reasoning and Proof
-Segments and Angles
-Parallel and Perpendicular Lines
-Triangle Relationships
-Congruent Triangles
-Properties of Triangles
-Quadrilaterals
-Similarity
-Transformations
-Polygons and Area
-Surface Area and Volume
-Right Triangles and Trigonometry
-Circles
-Area of Polygons and Circles
-Surface Area and Volume
Tell“Mr H” and he will bring relief

SAT Math

Choosing “Mr H” as your private tutor is the right choice for your SAT
- exceptional instruction
- targeted tutoring to your specific need
- flexible and convenient evening and weekend meeting times
- no distractions
- facilitate student motivation in achieving success
SAT Math tests
- 54 questions (44 multiple choice and 10 grind-in)
- 70 minutes (two 25 minutes sections and one 20 minute section)
- basic arithmetic, algebra 1 & II, and geometry

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is the measuring of angles and sides of triangles.
“Mr H” will lead you through the challenges of trigonometry, by assessing your needs and then using the various real-world applications of trig to facilitate your understanding for success. Whether you need is for college, high school or middle school, astronomy, geography, engineering, physics, chemistry or just mathematics (calculus, linear algebra or statistics).
Contact "Mr H" for help with your Trig need:
•Use right triangles to side lengths and angle measures, dimensions that are otherwise difficult to measure. One example might be measuring heights of mountains and trees by using similar triangles.
•Trigonometric ratios, functions, graphs, identities and equations
•Describe angles in terms of vertex, terminal side, and initial side.
•Convert between decimal degrees and degrees, minutes and seconds.
•Convert between degree and radian measure
•Identify angles that are co-terminal with given angles.
•Find the values of trigonometric ratios for acute angles of right triangles.
•Find trig functions of any angle up to 360 degrees.
•Explore and evaluate trigonometric functions using the unit circle.
•Use a calculator to evaluate trigonometric functions.
•Use domain and period to evaluate sine and cosine functions.
•Solve real life problems involving right triangles.
•Use the Law of Sines to solve oblique triangles.
•Sketch the graphs of basic sine and cosine functions using pencil and paper and a graphing calculator.
•Identify and use Pythagorean identities, reciprocal identities, quotient identities, and negative angle identities to simplify trigonometric expressions.
•Definitions of Trigonometric Functions
•Reciprocal Identities
•Pythagorean Identities
•Negative-Angle Identities (also called Even/Odd Identities)
