I've found one-on-one sessions as the most effective way to learn math. I can diagnose and address deficiencies that would otherwise go undetected in a standard classroom environment. I explain the material so the student can learn through understanding. No short cuts required - if it makes sense, the student will learn it.

I have a math degree from MIT and taught math at Rutgers University for 10 years. I don't just know the material; I know the student as well.

####
Physics

I performed well in my physics courses as an MIT student. I have tutored students in classic mechanics, electricity, and magnetism. I can offer help in both non-Calculus and Calculus based courses. My emphasis is on using physics principles to set up problems so that the remaining math becomes straightforward.

####
Precalculus

A full Precalculus contains a great deal of material and is often a daunting task for the student. I have taught at the University level as the professor for Precalculus. I take the topics in Algebra, Exponentials, Logarithms, Trigonometry, and make them easier to understand. Once my students begin to understand the material, positive results usually follow.

####
Statistics

I have taught a course involving statistics and concentrated in several stats courses at the PhD level. Statistics offers many new concepts which, depending how it's taught, can be overwhelming at times. I have experience taking topics in statistics which students find challenging or intimidating and placing them in an easier to understand context.

####
SAT Math

I have taught math for an SAT prep company. I teach the necessary concepts in order to obtain the answers and also how to use more efficient and quicker methods. SAT preparation requires lots of practice and I offer a study schedule based on the amount of time which remains until the exam and my assessment of the student's level. Increased scores should follow.

####
Differential Equations

I completed and received an 'A' in a course in Differential Equation while at MIT (Cambridge, MA). I also taught a course in Differential Equation at Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ).

####
Linear Algebra

I have tutored linear algebra and received an A in a course at MIT. I have helped students to better understand systems of linear equations, determinants, eigenvectors and eigenvalues, diagonalization, and vector spaces among other topics.
