Stony Brook University (math and statistics)
Dear students and parents;
I am a certified math teacher majoring in math and statistics at Stony Brook University. I am very confident in teaching math; I have a strong background in math that can benefit students learning. Deep understanding and knowledge of the concepts of topics and many different types of problem solving skills are my powerful tool in teaching students math. Understanding of concepts is very important in math since it would guide and help students to approach the problems and solve them in an appropriate way. Nevertheless, through tutoring many students, I have noticed many of them lacked understanding the concepts. For this reason, they have struggled with solving problems, even simple questions.
My teaching technique was very effective to resolve the problems many students had. Helping them understand the concepts clearly and teaching problem solving skills in a various way to fit their individual need(level, ability and learning style)was successful for students to accelerate their math skills.
Math is my passion and the strongest subject and really enjoy working with students. It would be great pleasure if I can help you or help your children. You will be seeing how math can change your life. Dear students and parents;

My sons have had Ms. Judy as a tutor for the past couple of months and in that time they have both gained a lot more confidence and have learned to carefully prepare and review for tests. Their grades and test scores have significantly improved. They enjoy the lessons with Ms. Judy who is very professional, and truly wants them to succeed.
Judy tutors my son who is in 9th grade. She teaches him Geometry. She is an amazing teacher. She is very patient and has a clear understanding of what she teaches. Also, Judy is very flexible. If my son has a test or quiz, Judy always manages to make time even with short notice. I am thankful to her.
Judy K has been working with my son and what a difference with his math experience. It's finally getting through to him and he is GETTING IT!!! Thank you so much Judy!!! What a great relief for him and us.
2/8- Update: Matthew passed his Geometry Regents!!! with Judy's help he went from a 55 to 70 in just 9 sessions. He could not have done it without the help of his wonderful, talented and caring Tutor Judy K.
Thank you Judy from the bottom of our hearts. What a sense of relief Matthew is feeling over this victory!!!
Judy has helped my daughter greatly. Her first quarter grade in geometry was a 74 and her second quarter grade was a 81. Judy is on time, patient and really gets my daughter to understand the material. We are shooting for 90 in the third quarter!
Judy is very patient and accommodating. Her enthusiasm about math is evident and she has helped my 11th grade daughter improve from a C to a B student.
Judy K. is currently helping me with my math 101 course in NCC. She is a very good teacher and is patient with me. She explains all questions until I understand them. I've had her for two sessions already and passed my first math test with flying colors! I will continue using Judy K. until I finish this semester. Thanks Judy!!
Judy came in and went right to work with my son. She if very thorough and knows what she is doing. Her method seem to help my son. Great Work Judy!!
Judy has been tutoring my 13 year old son, preparing him for the Algebra Regents and we are very pleased with the outcome. My son has so much more confidence now. She is always on time, has patience and is very accommodating.
We would highly recommend her to others looking for an excellent reliable tutor!
Judy K. has been so patient and our daughter finally has clarification surrounding math queries that her own teacher would not review. She is an excellent tutor and my daughter was looking forward to seeing her at each session.
Kim is very patient with my daughter. She gives her helpful hints. I have already used her for Geometry and my daughter requested her again for trig.
Judy has helped my daughter improve her math grades. My daughter understands and enjoys math because of Judy. She is always on time, patient, and very effective. We like the fact that she always gives positive praise to my daughter.
An extremely knowledgeable, patient, concerned and helpful tutor. Very accessible and flexible; also a lovely person. We had a VERY positive experience, and strongly recommend Myung/Judy.
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. 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.
Algebra 1 covers expressions, systems of equations, functions, real numbers, inequalities, exponents, polynomials, radical, and rational expressions. Many students find Algebra 1 challenging because it requires a new way of thinking and many different types of problems solving skills.
Algebra I is an important topic in math since it is a gateway to higher education and gives you the skills to solve more complex problems.
In Algebra 2, students will learn about numbers, polynomials, inequalities, sequences and sums, many types of functions and how to solve them. They will gain a deeper insight into math and practice using new skills with many questions. During the sessions, I always encourage my students to use pen and paper and try their best until they get the solutions.
"Don't guess the answer"
The math skills that students learn in elementary school build a foundation for future learning, so it is important for student success, but more important is a concept since without conceptual understanding, it is meaningless to solve the problems. Many middle and high school students lack these concepts and skills due to the lack of foundations from their elementary level. I focus on them and it really works well.
For the GED math test, students should know mathematical concepts and apply those concepts to various problem situations. They should have a strong grasp on problem-solving, reasoning and analytical skills. The test also includes graphs, charts, diagrams or tables, so they should be able to understand and apply mathematical concepts in real-world situations.
High school geometry requires more precise definitions and developing careful proofs from their middle school geometry experience. One of the most difficult things for students in geometry is to determine two figures are similar or congruent. It is essential to learn how to approach the problems and use definition, postulates, and theorems appropriately in a logical way and lead them to conclusions.
I have five years of experience tutoring students for the math Regents exam (algebra 1, 2, trigonometry and geometry) for grades 9-12. For the past years, I have taught and had students practice all the problems in eight actual Regents exams. Through practicing the problems repeatedly, they became more confident and gained problem solving skills. My goal is to not only help students achieve good grades on the Regents but also motivate to learn math.
I have experienced teaching SAT math at Huntington Learning Center and through WYZant for 5 years. Most SAT math questions can be solved in more than one method, so I approach to questions in many different ways based on my students problem solving skills and prior knowledge for the problems. For each problem, I assess their weaknesses for the problem and strengthen their weakest area. In addition to, learning mathematical concepts and appropriate approach for the problems is a essential foundation in SAT math.
It worked excellent for most SAT students.
Trignometry involves the relations of the sides and angles of triangles; it is to find a missing side or angle in a triangle. For example, given one side of a triangle and two angles in the triangle, then the other two sides and the remaining angle are determined. It also deals with the special function, sin, cos and tan and the inverse of these functions, cot, sec, and csc.
Judy K. passed a background check on 12/21/14. The check was ordered by Judy through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Judy, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
