I have been tutoring on a part-time basis for years and am very proud that 3 of my students achieved perfect math scores on their SAT. I start by explaining how to prepare for the test, review the math concepts and time management, and explain substitution techniques to make complex problems easy. One of the best compliments that I have received was that I made math fun, understandable and enjoyable. Bottom line is that I build math confidence and improve math scores.

I held a teaching assistantship while studying for my MA and have always enjoyed teaching. My full-time career is in financial services, which means I present (or explain) new systems to corporations and I have to be good at it. I pride myself on being able to communicate and I can present concepts in understandable terms. This ability enables me to prepare students for their SAT, ACT Math tests and help them understand Algebra, Geometry, and basic math.

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.

Chess

I started playing chess in high-school and was president of the chess club and class champion. I have continued to play for fun, relaxation and mental stimulation. I both enjoy and love the game.

Logic

As a Math major at Rutgers University; logic was part of my diploma requirements. I enjoyed this course and did very well. I also found that the logic course provided me with a solid base for other subjects, as well as for business because logical thinking is a requirement for making good decisions. I have the experience, the patience, and the knowledge to effectively tutor this subject.

Praxis

I hold a BA in Mathematics from Rutgers University and have been a successful one-on-one tutor for many years. One of my areas of specialization is preparing students to take standardized tests.
I am a very patient tutor who will help prepare you for the Praxis Test by reviewing sample test problems, teaching time management and problem-solving and checking techniques, and by building math confidence.

Great tutor. — Simon was extremely patient and worked step by step with me on each problem. He taught me how to break problems down and approach them in much more systematic way. I saw a huge improvement after working with him. ...
