I am driven by the challenge of helping every student to succeed. Most recently I have done this at the secondary level as a public charter school teacher. Prior to that, alongside my own doctoral work in mathematics, I taught and assistant-taught college-level math classes, from remedial Calculus to Multivariate Calculus.

Because my GRE scores are in the 98-99th percentile (170/170), and because I have had school-level success on national high school math competitions, I am further challenged to help students of all backgrounds deepen their understanding of math and English.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Advanced algebra was one of my favorite subjects in graduate school, where I earned an "A" in at least three or four such courses. The same concepts are in elementary algebra, and I have a good amount of experience tutoring at this level. I like to find the right balance between identifying patterns through the repetition of a given category of problem, and asking more conceptual questions.

Advanced algebra was one of my favorite subjects in graduate school, where I earned an "A" in at least three or four such courses. The same concepts are in elementary algebra, and I have a good amount of experience tutoring at this level.

As a doctoral student I assistant-taught several semesters of Calculus, and taught summer courses myself on a few occasions. For both, I held well-attended office hours in which I did small-group and one-on-one tutoring. Calculus is about a beautiful connection between symbolic manipulation and geometric interpretation, and I enjoy helping students of all levels to see that with practice it is not so difficult.

I have a BA and an MA in mathematics. In both degrees the focus was on discrete math, logic, and algebra. I also taught a course in discrete math, held office hours, and worked in a tutoring office that covered this subject.

I have a BA in philosophy, which included a two-year "great books" program. Together this comprised an extensive amount of reading, analyzing texts, developing theses, and putting ideas into words. I have extensive experience tutoring as well, and score in the 99th percentile on standardized tests like the GRE in English.

I have a BA and MA in mathematics. This included coursework in logic, discrete math, algebra, and computer science. I worked in a tutorial office tutoring these subjects.

I majored in philosophy and mathematics, which has given me a broad exposure to the kinds of material on a high school equivalency test. I also enjoy helping others to master different types of questions. I have several years part-time experience holding office hours and working in a tutorial office. I have worked with students who are taking the GED specifically.

I enjoy helping others understand the logic and rules that govern our writing, interpretation, and speech. I have almost six months' experience tutoring in English half-time, including grammar.

I do well on standardized tests and scored perfect on the Verbal and Quantitative sections of the GRE in 2013. I also enjoy helping others to master different types of questions. I have several years part-time experience holding office hours and working in a tutorial office.

I have an MA and BA degree in mathematics. As part of graduate coursework I assistant taught math courses, including linear algebra. I worked in an undergraduate tutorial office for one year as a tutor for subjects including linear algebra.

I was enrolled for two years in a math graduate program in logic. As an undergraduate I majored in philosophy, with an emphasis on logic. I scored perfect on the GRE quantitative reasoning test.

I have passed the MTEL in English. I also passed the MTEL with very high scores in math. I work hard to make the subject accessible to students. I believe these tests can be passed, with patient tutoring and hard work on the part of the student.

I have a masters degree in math, but have not lost sight of the difficulties encountered in elementary math. Through getting a grade of "A" in at least four or five college courses I bring a good understanding of the deeper principles that algebra grapples with, and I enjoy tutoring the subject at all levels.

I have a masters degree in math, which included student teaching several elementary undergraduate math classes. I have worked half-time for nearly six months tutoring high school math (advanced algebra and pre-calc). While I have studied math at a high level, I have not lost sight of the importance of pedagogy, and I enjoy helping students of all levels to succeed.

I do well (99th percentile) on standardized tests in both math and English. I enjoy helping others to master the different types of questions on the SAT and the PSAT. I have several years part-time experience holding office hours and working in a tutorial office.

My BA involved reading and interpreting writing of all sorts. I enjoy helping others to reason through their ideas about a given text. I received a perfect score on the GRE general test verbal portion, and have extensive experience tutoring and working one-on-one with students.

I do well on standardized tests (I scored a perfect 170 on the GRE general test quantitative section). However, I also understand what makes SAT questions difficult. I have ample experience tutoring math, both as a graduate instructor of basic math courses, and as a high school tutor. I have tutored a dozen students in SAT math specifically.

As an undergraduate I read extensively in philosophy, literature, and sociology. I have also worked in an undergraduate tutorial office for a year, and tutored high school students in English Language Arts (ELA).

I have a BA in philosophy, and do well on standardized test. As an undergraduate I did a lot of writing, and was published in the school's journal. I read abundantly on my own, and enjoy helping students to develop as writers.

I read avidly in my spare time and have a BA in philosophy. My vocabulary skills enable me to score in the 99th percentile on standardized tests. I enjoy helping others to master vocabulary, whether through games or discussing the different roots, suffixes, and prefixes in a word.

I have a BA in philosophy, which included a two-year "great books" program, and a sizable writing component. I enjoy helping others to reason through their ideas and develop a writing style.
