Remember the first time you learned about adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing large numbers, back in elementary school? If you're like most people, it probably seemed really hard. But years later, is it hard now? After elementary school, these are routine math problems most people can easily accomplish. The math is the same, but it is easier to do now.
The difficulty of math is learning it, not using it once you know how it works. This is how all math works! Math is a system that makes sense, and once you understand it, homework, quizzes, and tests are easy!
Greetings! My name is Matt B., and I've been a tutor for the past 7 years, helping people overcome their difficulties with math and physics. My tutoring philosophy is based on the idea above: my job as a tutor is to help you understand how math works, making you able to do any problem yourself! (Of course this all applies to physics as well as to math!) I believe that you can always do better in math or physics, no matter what level you're at now, and I help make that happen by asking the right questions and working through important problems with you.
In my math and physics tutoring experience, I've helped students from high school through college levels and beyond! That includes the following subjects: algebra I & II, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus (including AP, AB and BC). I've helped students at many different public and private high schools in New York, including Stuyvesant, LaGuardia, Bronx Science, Dalton, Horace Mann, Riverdale, and many others. I've helped undergraduate college students with all of these subjects, as well as adults returning to school during their careers: MBA at NYU, prerequisites for a course of study in Nursing, and more. If you’re in a class that’s not on this list, ask me, I probably do that too!
A little personal info: I like music, reading, and writing as hobbies. I’m a very positive and patient person, and if you are struggling with something in math, I bet I can help you!
