I have limited tutoring availability during this summer (2014). I reside in East Elmhurst, Queens and prefer to tutor within a few miles. Please do not contact me about tutoring if you live significantly far from East Elmhurst.
I began tutoring in spring of 2010 and mainly tutored students in high school algebra
and algebra 2
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 graduated from Hunter College with a master's degree in mathematics
education. I am currently a high school math teacher 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.

I am planning to become a math teacher and absolutely love the subject. If you need help, please...
