I am a Rutgers graduate (PhD Mathematics), with over five years teaching/tutoring experience. I can tutor both high school and college level math classes. I am available afternoons, evenings, and most weekends.

I have good communication skills as well as teaching skills by building up through my graduate program as a Research Assistant as well as Teaching Assistant. I am willing to help high schools students as well as undergraduate students in some subjects, that I am experienced, including: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Calculus, Geometry, Analysis, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra.

My method is followed by the quote of Josef Albers "Good Teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of RIGHT answers."

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.

Linear Algebra

Linear algebra is the branch of mathematics concerning vector spaces and linear mappings between such spaces. Such an investigation is initially motivated by a system of linear equations containing unknowns. Such equations are naturally represented using the formalism of matrices and vectors. Linear algebra is central to both pure and applied mathematics. Being a third year math graduate student, a teaching assistant, and researching assistant, I am good at linear algebra. Moreover, I passed the written qualifying exam for PhD requirement two years ago, and linear algebra is one of topics of the exam.
