I am a certified High School Mathematics teacher with over 13 years experience. Subjects taught are: Business Math, Elementary Functions, Trigonometry, Geometry, Algebra 1 and 2 and Statistics. Students determine what I tutor by supplying their textbook. I supplement with other textbooks and start with previous test from their teacher and homework. I am flexible in setting up tutoring times especially when a student is preparing for an Sat test, school test or placing out of a math course in business, college, or private school.
