If you live on Long Island and struggle with geometry, algebra, or general chemistry, or if you need help preparing for the most challenging section of the SAT/ACT, I can definitely help you.
I specialize in individualized instruction in algebra, geometry and chemistry for non-math/science majors. I also offer tutoring and coaching effective strategies for taking the SAT Math, which is section most students struggle with. I was a full-time math and chemistry tutor at the Academic Learning Center at Buffalo State College. Most students reach out to me because they feel they have nowhere else to go for help. But every student I ever worked with improved considerably (in many cases remarkably) in subjects they once deemed impossible to learn.
Many students and parents are skeptical when I tell them that they don't have to be math or science prodigies to succeed. They are often shocked when I tell them that ANYONE can succeed in math and science, if approached the right way. Over the years, I've discovered the main reason why so many students struggle with math and science. Aside from the material already being complex, it's taught the EXACT SAME WAY to a wide cross section of students, even though EVERYONE processes and applies information DIFFERENTLY. If a student does not respond well to the conventional way math or science lessons are given, it often leads to self doubt, embarrassment, reluctance to seek out help, withdrawal, and ultimately a complete shutdown. My special approach to tutoring is threefold: 1) Learn my student's natural problem solving skills and pinpoint their key strengths 2) Explain the material in its most basic terms and to explore the number of ways it can be applied to a problem, 3) Teach the student how use the material to play to their personal strengths, thus maximizing their potential. The key to academic success is not just in knowing, but understanding how to apply what you learn.
