I am a highly qualified tutor for all ages and levels of Math.

Here are my credentials:

I have earned an M.B.A. (graduating with honors) from Drexel University. I have recent experience as an Adjunct Professor of Statistics and Intermediate Algebra. I have specific experience of tutoring and preparing students (prospective teachers) to pass both the Praxis I and Praxis II math standardized test. I currently conduct SAT math preparation classes (group sessions) as well as SAT math prep on a one-to-one basis.

I am adept in teaching NJCCCS including:

1. Number and numerical operations;

2. Geometry and measurement;

3. Patterns and algebra;

4. Data analysis, probability and discrete mathematics;

5. Mathematical processes;

I am a provider of experienced, professional one-on-one attention. I have the ability to present math concepts in a simple, step-by-step approach that those who are "math averse" can understand. I am patient with students and have tutored students ranging from elementary school age through PhD candidates. I am flexible and will work around the student's schedule. I have successfully tutored statistics over the telephone with no visual stimulus.

ASVAB

The following four sections are the only sections that contribute to your AFQT (Armed Forces Qualification Test) score, and your AFQT score determines if you are eligible to enlist in the Armed Forces.

1, Arithmetic Reasoning

2. Mathematics Knowledge

3. Word Knowledge

4. Paragraph Comprehension

I am currently tutoring others who are preparing to pass the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test. I am a math specialist who is adept at breaking...

Biostatistics

I recently was Adjunct Professor at a local community college having taught Introduction to Statistics for two years.

I recently tutored a very worried graduate (Masters Program) student (in a nursing program) to success in an on-line Bio-Statistics course project. She earned a "A" for the course.

Also, earlier this year, I helped an Anesthesiology Nursing Graduate Student in her on-line Biostatistics course and the result was that she scored the highest overall average...

Logic

Mathematical logic is a subfield of mathematics. This includes, but is not limited to, set theory, proofs (such as in geometry) and model theory. Much of the SAT test includes testing the students' reasoning and logic skills. Over the past 7 years, I have tutored many hundreds of students in developing these skills. I incorporate many math "tricks" and test taking techniques that I have developed through my extensive tutoring experience.

####
Praxis

I have recently tutored students for the math portion of Praxis I and Praxis II in elementary, middle school and high school test versions. I have techniques of breaking down concepts in very simple, easy-to-understand terms for those "math-averse" students. In one situation, I helped a student pass after failing four times prior to working with me.

####
Probability

I have taught Introduction to Statistics which includes Probability for two years at the community college level. Through hundreds of hours of teaching and tutoring this subject, I have developed ways of communicating these concepts in easy-to-understand methods. Concepts I am especially adept at communicating include the following: sample space (decision tree), "AND" (intersection) versus "OR" (union), Venn Diagram and conditional probability.

####
PSAT

I currently tutor groups of students to prepare them for taking the math portion of the SAT test. I have techniques of breaking down concepts in very simple, easy-to-understand terms for those "math-averse" students. I can translate that skill set to the preliminary SAT test (PSAT).
