I am a full-time professional licensed math teacher and tutor with proven results.

The majority of my SAT students have improved scores by over 20%, a statistic which is over double the national average results of SAT tutors. I have expertise in all levels of math from SAT, Integrated Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calc AB and BC, and college calculus. My rates are very affordable compared to local tutoring agencies, and I have a proven track record to back it up.

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.
