Unfortunately, my availability to take on students to tutor during this time is very limited, due to my current summer schedule. I will not be able to tutor any students at this time, but I will update this status if or when it changes.
I live in East Elmhurst, Queens, and may consider tutoring a student in math if he or she lives fairly close to this area, and can have tutoring once a week on Saturdays for up to two hours or three hours at most. Other days are not suitable due to my school schedule, but I would be willing to help students who have Saturdays free and need help in the math subjects mentioned below.
I began tutoring in spring of 2010 and mainly tutored students in high school in 9th grade algebra and 11th grade algebra 2 and trigonometry during the academic year. I have some experience tutoring in 6th, 7th and 8th grade math as well. I do not have a great comfort level with 10th grade geometry (including constructions), but am knowledgeable of a good amount of the subject. Also, I do not tutor in PSAT or SAT math because I am not qualified to do so.
I am currently a graduate student at Hunter College working to receive my master's degree in mathematics education. I am in the process of working to receive certification as a high school math teacher in New York state. I also have experience teaching high school students at a public high school in Queens, and have used various strategies in an effort to help students become successful in math.
I absolutely love math and view it as a universal subject that can be applied to many life situations. Many students struggle with this subject, and I have a great desire to help students understand and excel in it for the goal of succeeding not only in school but also for post-secondary pursuits. Based on my tutoring experiences, it brings me great joy for someone to benefit academically because I have helped him or her, and when a student understands a subject, he or she can truly enjoy and appreciate it as something that is valued more than just as a simple requirement to receive a passing grade in school.
For elementary and high school students who need help in the subjects mentioned above, I am very passionate and willing to put in my absolute best effort to help them understand the material and succeed in school. Learning requires hard work, and I am willing to do everything possible to help a student achieve his or her academic goals.
