I have been tutoring students in math for around 20 years. I have tutored students in various branches of math ranging from arithmetic to calculus. I have tutored students as young as my nephews as well as students older than my mother. My methods in mathematics have been proven to work well. Many of my past clients have passed Regents exams, RCTs, did well on standardized tests like SATs and ACTs, and earned excellent grades in college and graduate level courses. Recently, most of my clients have been teachers. Many of them have struggled with a math course at some point, and my tutoring assistance helped them greatly towards earning their Master's Degree. I have shown proficiency in math since my youth. My father taught me basic algebra as a 7-year-old. I became proficient in geometry as an 8-year-old, and this knowledge still sticks with me to this day. I would love to pass on some of this knowledge to some of prospective students. I look forward to working with you prospective students in the future.
My educational experience is as follows. I attended high school at A. Philip Randolph Campus High School in New York. I graduated with a Regents Diploma in 1996. I attended Cornell University from 1996-2000, and received a B.S. in Engineering. I am currently working on my Master's Degree at Empire State College in New York City. Throughout my education, I have excelled more so in mathematics than any other subject. I scored 90+ on all of my Regents math exams including a perfect score on second year sequential math. I also scored a 5 on the nationwide AP test for Calculus AB. In college I received A's in my linear algebra classes and in my two calculus classes. During those times, I have helped numerous students master the subject like I did.
Now with 20+ years of tutoring under my belt, I believe that I can give adequate assistance to a new crop of students who may be experiencing difficulty in certain areas of math. I am more than qualified to assist such students, and it is a pleasure of mine that will probably never die. Let's tackle these math problems together. With my assistance, you'll become very proficient in your area of math.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT Math

I am qualified to tutor in this subject because I know the math on the ACT. I am an expert in tutoring algebra, geometry, fractions, ratios, percents, decimals, etc. I also have scored highly on comparative exams like the SAT and GRE.

Algebra 1

I am qualified to tutor Algebra 1 because I am familiar with all of the topics within it. I know logic, quadratic equations, graphing, single-variable equations, functions, etc. with great detail since junior high school. I also have scored highly in 3 New York State Regents exams including a perfect score on 2 of them.

Algebra 2

I am qualified in tutoring algebra 2 because I know all topics within the subject very well. I am an expert in trigonometry (all of the functions), logarithms, factoring, probability, and all of the measures of a circle including angular and linear distance. I scored well on all major exams including New York State Regents & SAT associated with Algebra 2.

Calculus

I am qualified to tutor calculus because of my knowledge of the subject. I scored a 5 on the AP Calculus AB exam. I also have tutored students since then. I have given good lesson planning to students who struggled with integration, derivatives, limits, concavity, inflection, etc.

Chemistry

Chemistry is a subject I can tutor because I have amassed credible knowledge of the periodic table. I also have good understanding of chemistry concepts like balancing reactions, nuclear energy, ideal gases, bonding, compounds, mixtures, etc. Lastly I can tie all of these concepts together when discussing more intensive concepts in chemistry.

Differential Equations

I am qualified to tutor in this subject due to my experience in the subject. I took AP Calculus in high school and scored a 5 on the AP exam. I also took a class exclusively in differential equations in college & received an A.

GED

I am qualified to tutor GED because I had all of the minimum skills to graduate from high school. I also have tutored three people in my close circle of friends who earned their GED. I mainly tutored them in the math, science, and reading portion of the exams. Over the years, I have also learned the minimum score to pass the GED.

Geometry

Geometry is most likely my favorite topic in all of math. I am qualified to tutor geometry because I know all of the properties of the 6 major quadrilaterals backwards and forwards. I also know how to construct equilateral polygons from triangles to decagons using my geometric skills. Lastly I have perfect knowledge of coordinate geometry. I can show students how coordinates can be used to find slope, and distance.

GRE

I am qualified to tutor for the GRE because I have passed the GRE myself. I know the math portion very well, and I have proven methods to solving such problems. I also can instruct the reading portion since I have a good grasp of the type of question that would appear in that section.

Logic

Logic is part of the algebra courses I took in eighth and ninth grade. I passed both years with grades of A. I have also tutored Logic since 1997 to several students.

Prealgebra

I have tutored pre-algebra in the past. I have seen good results from some of my past clients. Many have shown a better knowledge of variables, constants, linear equations, systems of equations, etc.

Precalculus

I never took precalculus. I jumped straight from trigonometry, functions, and radial geometry straight into calculus. I am perfectly qualified to tutor precalculus because I have bedrock knowledge of domain & ranges, logarithms, natural number e, graphing higher order functions, and exponential functions.

PSAT

I have tutored students for the PSAT in the past. I am qualified to tutor the PSAT because I know the questions that will appear on the exam. I can help prospective students with proper guidance to solving such questions.

Regents

I am qualified to tutor students who take Regents exams for two reasons. One is that I have passed 10 Regents exams (with a 90+ average). The other is that I own a New York State Regents Diploma. I am well versed on how to answer the questions asked on Regents exams whether it's for geometry, algebra, Spanish, English, US History, chemistry, biology, etc. I also have particular testing strategies that work well when taking a Regents exam.

SAT Math

I am very qualified to tutor in SAT Math. I know the math questions that the SAT will have very well. I also know how to solve all of these math problems ranging from the geometry ones to the algebra ones. I could give instruction on how to solve such problems using certain techniques.

Spanish

I learned Spanish in high school under 4 years of rigorous instruction. I am qualified to be a Spanish tutor because I understand the language very well. I know how to form complete sentences, conjugate verbs, interpret expressions from Spanish to English, and use proper grammar when writing a long piece in Spanish.

Trigonometry

I can definitely tutor trigonometry. I am well versed in the three main trigonometric functions as well as the three reciprocal trigonometric functions. I also clearly know how to use them to solve various geometry problem with right triangles as well as other polygons. I could show how to solve such problems through intense lesson planning.

x^3+x^2-4x-4 (answer)

x^3 + x^2 - (4x + 4) = (x^2)(x + 1) - 4(x + 1) = (x^2 - 4)(x + 1) = (x + 2)(x - 2)(x +1)
