I have tutored Algebra II students for the past three years. This past year I helped a student raise his grade from a C to a B- and another student score a 94 on his spring final.
I've helped students understand inverses, transformations of graphs, inequalities, graphing systems of equations, imaginary numbers, factoring, absolute value, quadratics with complex roots, polynomials, exponential growth and decay, logarithms, and long division.
I have different approaches to explaining each concept and will adjust my teaching style to best fit your child.
I've tutored AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC students this past year. I took AP Calculus BC and scored a 5. I've helped students understand limits, derivatives, integrals, related rates, Chain Rule, techniques of differentiation (Power Rule, Quotient Rule, etc.), implicit functions, inverse functions, second derivatives, L'Hopital's Rule, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, the First Derivative Test, the Second Derivative Test, antidifferentiation, Riemann sums, Taylor Series, and the Ratio Test.
I have different methods of teaching these concepts and will tailor my teaching style to best fit your child's needs.
I took AP Macroeconomics this year and received a 5 on the exam. I have three years of tutoring experience, and I can help you learn basic economics concepts; e.g. opportunity costs, PPC (production possibilities curve), comparative v. absolute advantage, specialization, exchange rates, supply & demand, equilibrium, the business cycle, unemployment, inflation, growth, GDP, nominal v. real GDP/inflation, the loanable funds market, monetary v. fiscal policy, the Philips Curve, balance of payments accounts, imports, exports, currency appreciation & depreciation, and the foreign exchange market.
I worked as a Teacher's Assistant (TA) for 1st graders for a year. I know how to communicate with young children and keep them engaged in the material. I'm patient and encouraging, and I can help them learn a range of material, including but not limited to math (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, percentages), English (reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary), science, and social studies.

I'm patient and encouraging, and have taught elementary schoolers addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, percentages, and negative numbers.
English was my favorite subject in high school. I have a passion for literature--I've read Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, Jane Eyre, and Moby-Dick, to name a few.
I was our school newspaper's Managing Editor, meaning I was in charge of our Writer's Manual and for teaching new writers the art of journalism. I love grammar, reading, and writing, and I have multiple approaches to learning vocabulary and writing.
I have tutored Precalculus for the past two years. I've helped students understand horizontal and vertical asymptotes, parametric equations, complex numbers, conics, domain and range, inverse functions, trigonometry, vectors, graphing polynomials, absolute value, factoring, exponents, and logarithms.
I have different approaches to these concepts and will tailor my teaching to best fit your child's learning style.
Reading Comprehension is difficult but not impossible to learn. Over the years I've been honing my reading skills, so now I know how to approach standardized test questions, from identifying cause and effect to main ideas.
I received an 800 on the Math II Subject Test and a 760 on the Math section of the SATs.
I received an 800 on the Reading Section of the SATs, taken in January 2012.
I received a 790 on the Writing Section of the SATs.
Learning vocabulary is always challenging, but there are ways to learn it quickly and effectively. Having studied countless vocab words myself in preparation for the SAT, I have different methods to memorizing words and a large collection of vocab books. With patience and practice, you'll be stunned by our progress.
