I can help you with general coursework assistance as well as SHSAT, SAT, ACT, and Regents exam preparation. I have eight years experience teaching advanced mathematics (algebra 1 and 2, trigonometry, pre-calculus and AP calculus). I can expertly tutor any of these courses or middle-school math.

I am a certified teacher in NY State (including background check), and I hold bachelor’s degrees in both mathematics and computer science from Virginia Tech. I also received an M.A.T. in secondary math education from American University (in DC). I even have ten years prior experience developing math-intensive software.

Finally, I am a punctual, reliable, and fun home tutor with excellent customer-service skills (for both students and parents). I look forward to helping all students and their families achieve and exceed their math goals.
