I am a certified high school math teacher that LOVES math! My goal is to pass this love of math around to students thru remediation, coaching, homework help or anything else that may fit your child's mathematical needs.
Over the past ten years I have worked with students in varying capacities from volunteering, tutoring, and teaching summer courses, to full time teaching. My experience working with students has been in various private, public as well as charter schools.
Growing up in south Texas as a young Indian girl, I spent much of my time competing and preparing for extracurricular math competitions throughout the academic year as well as during the summers. The other part of my life was dedicated to reading, as I believe reading is the key to learning.
I look to create a positive environment where I can help motivate students to engage in both analytical and critical thinking in mathematics. I believe that working with students 1-on-1 and in small group settings can allow students to get their questions asked and not feel intimidated or worry about the pace of the class.
I truly believe that my students' success is my success. I invest in each and every one of my students and try to be flexible, accommodating and available. My goal is for each of my students to not only feel successful but BE successful.
Feel free to read my regular blog posts on math education.
One of the biggest differences between the ACT and the SAT is that the ACT also has some trigonometry included in the test, which usually students do not see until their junior year. Some students may see it a little earlier.
Algebra 2 is my favorite subject. This course allows you to truly explore your understanding of functions. Whether they are linear, quadratic, rational, polynomial or exponential. Depending on the course, many teachers also include trigonometry. Algebra 2 is one of the most challenging courses students will take, honors or non-honors. It is important that students keep up with the work level and keep up with practicing. I have found that when students don't keep up with the work load they tend to fall behind quickly, and it becomes increasingly difficult to keep up with the course.
Performing well on exams like the SAT is partially about the mathematics and partially about the strategies needed to do well. The SAT includes math equations that range all the way to Algebra 2. There are some difficult questions about functions, usually linear and quadratic. There are also quite a few Geometry questions. It is important students practice so that they have the formulas they need memorized and they have some strategies in place. See my blog about some basic strategies.
Trigonometry is all about triangles, that's why I love it! The difficulty lies in the fact that there is so much rote memorization early on with the different trig functions, their graphs, working with degrees or radians as well as all the different angle values. It is formula heavy and requires more memorization than the previous year of Algebra 2.
Wonderful Tutor! — Neemisha has been working with my middle school aged child for several months now and we couldn't be happier. My child's confidence has blossomed under her tutelage and her participation in class and grades have improved as a result. Neemisha is very patient and really wants to know and understand how she learns best. As an added bonus, she strives to be flexible with her schedule so that if an un ...
