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.

ACT Math

The Act Math exam covers a multitude of math topics that the studet has taken through the 11th Grade. Having graduated from The Bronx High School of Science, and then earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from St. John's University with an overall GPA of 3.47, I am familiar with the wide range of topics and its applications which the Math Act exam tests. I am thorough, patient, and knowledgeable, and use a wide variety of teaching techniques which I acquired from tutoring for a large educational firm.

Algebra 1

I have a Bachelor of Science degree from St. John's University in Physics, which required a heavy concentration on mathematics, including University Calculus I, II,and III, and Differential Equations. In this undertaking, I attained an overall GPA index of 3.47. Since graduating St. John's, I have been tutoring mathematics for a major educational firm, from Middle School grades through Pre-Calculus, and have had successful results from my students. I am also familiar with the New York Regents requirements, having attended The Bronx High School of Science, from which I graduated in 2009. I am patient, thorough, and resourceful, and will find many ways of explaining concepts in math and physics so that my my students gain a good understanding of the work, thereby achieving success.

Algebra 2

I graduated from St. John's University, where I attained a Bachelor of Science degree with a GPA of 3.47. I had previously graduated from The Bronx High School of Science, in 2009, so I am very familiar with the content and requirements of Algebra II in New York. Majoring in Physics in college, I was required a to take a heavy cncentration of courses in Mathematics, including University Calculus I, II, III, as well as Differential Equations. My skills in Mathematics have given me the expertise to tutor math for a major educational firm, from Middle School grades through Pre-Calculus, and I have been successful in this endeavor. I am patient and caring, and will provide a good learning construct for the student.
