I worked as a mathematics tutor while getting my Masters degree. I then was an adjunct lecturer at SUNY Brockport for a semester. I have been working for 3 years at an online tutoring facility called Brainfuse Realtime tutoring. I have experience tutoring in a variety of mathematics topics; from Pre-algebra to topology. Most of the time, I help students work on their homework or review tests. I can also help explain the language of textbooks, how to use them, answer other questions you may have in your class, and I can create lessons for you on any mathematics topics, if you tell me what they are in advance. I hope to have fun in my sessions with you.

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.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is the basic language of math. You learn different ways to use variables as tools in simplifying relationships between numbers. I will help you answer questions, solve puzzles and translate from English to mathematics.

Differential Equations

I have a Master's Degree in Mathematics. I have tutored in Mathematics for 3.5 years. I have taken multiple Differential Equation courses for both my graduate and undergraduate degree.

Geometry

Geometry is a subject describing how to prove systems from first principles and specifically relates to what we can prove about the measurement of space, as well as defining a language to do so. I will help you figure out the vocabulary and help you find the puzzle pieces that let you do the proofs and help you review the algebra needed to find answers.

Precalculus

Precalculus is a class on techniques to understand complex functions, graphs, and breaking down problems into simpler more manageable pieces. Personally, it is one of my favorite areas of mathematics. Complex problems are combined with learning about fundamental functions, their relationships to one another and what the models they represent mean for the real world.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is the study of the relationships between angles and the lengths of sides of shapes. It is my job to help you find the tools to comprehend those relationships. I will do that by reminding you of the basics in geometry and algebra, and helping you learn to find how that relates to the information you learn in class.

This depends on the kind of equation  the esential idea is to always do the same thing to both sides of the equation.  What you do and when you do it is based on what is in the problem.  we first make sure that all pieces of a variable are on the same side.  We do that by...

slope is rise over run so r-7      =     1 -2-6            2   we start by simplifying as much as we can r-7   =  1 -8         2   next we get rid of the denominators...
