I completed my undergraduate studies in pure mathematics at Brown University, and in addition to my present academic pursuits, I am currently the AP BC Calculus instructor at a private school in Providence, RI. I am available as a tutor for Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus I, II, and III, SAT preparation, and various other standardized test preparations.
I have extensive experience tutoring a number of topics in mathematics, and enjoy the rewarding task of using my experience and knowledge to help others reach their academic potential. I also have experience teaching Calculus and Statistics as a primary instructor in a one-on-one setting, having created the curriculum, assignments and testing for the lessons.
Apart from my strong background in mathematics, being a student at Brown University has allowed me to garner experience in a large variety of fields outside of my area of focus, ranging from the sciences to the humanities, including 5 years of experience in Spanish. Having this diverse background allows me to implement a large variety of strategies in my interactions with students, and methods of teaching.
I have extensive experience in mathematics and am certified to tutor mathematical subjects up to the college level. Furthermore, I am certified to tutor various topics in the language arts (reading, comprehension, writing, vocabulary). I am aware of the makeup of the SSAT and the topics covered. I've performed quite well in a number of standardized tests I've taken throughout my academic years, and will therefore be able to offer some insight to secondary school students as they study for the SSAT.
