Whether you have a Math phobia, a summer class, or just want to get ahead and prepare for the coming school year, look no further!
I am a driven, passionate student tutor with years of experience. Aside from the indicated topics, I have tutored in Earth Science, ELA English, and Social studies at the middle school level. I have helped students learn math at EVERY level from 1st to 12th grade, so aside from being able to teach at these levels, I have worked at every single grade.
I focus on enabling the student to understand and learn material on their own by teaching problem solving skills and habits that facilitate understanding. By simplifying the topics and making use of numerical, analytical, and analogous approaches, I shatter math phobias and encourage a means of exploring topics which leaves no stones unturned. There are fundamental ideas, concepts and approaches that the broken school system does not teach yet is required of every mathematician. I give these essential missing concepts to my students!
I use the course material provided by the student to review material; if there is no course material I can tailor a curriculum by communicating with teachers and making use of free PDF ebooks to provide a reference and exercises. I teach and encourage students to make proper use of the textbook and build comfort using the index to find key terms when confused.
My rates are negotiable based on the nature of the material and travel/preparation time. I will travel to almost anywhere in Manhattan and many parts of Brooklyn that are in close proximity, i.e. Downtown Brooklyn, Park Slope, Carroll Gardens, Crown Heights, etc. I can also meet to work in a negotiated public setting, i.e. a library, park, café, etc. If you wish to have a group session, ask about my group rates; they are per person and dependent on the size of the group.
"Avery has been an all subject tutor for the [name removed] family for the last 3 years. He has been the best tutor we have had out of at least 6 different tutors we have had over the years for our son, [name removed]. He always makes himself available when needed and he knows the subject matter in detail. Being that he is an Engineer major [at time of writing] he is extremely bright and pays attention to detail when tutoring. My son has truly enjoyed tutoring with Avery and I would be lost without his services. We look forward to working with him again in the Fall."
