I have always enjoyed helping others with math ever since I was in sixth grade. My classmates always did better than I did after I explained how to do a problem.
It wasn't until the last five years of my professional career that I became a professional tutor in a small college in upstate New York. I loved every minute of tutoring I did there. As in all the colleges, there students with varied abilities that came for help; some very bright, some average, and some with learning disabilities. I was able to quickly determine the learning style of each student (visual, auditory, tactile) and would use that knowledge to optimize the learning process.
I have a lot of patience and am calm so students quickly feel at ease with me. Add that to my extensive background and you have a winning combination.
I received my Bachelor's and Master's degree from Stevens Institute of Technology which has a very rigorous math requirement. I have also tutored algebra for six years at the community college level and have always enjoyed my experience with every student. I can provide references if needed. I dealt with young students and students that were sixty years old. I have experienced and dealt with a wide variety of student abilities; students with learning disabilities to strong math students.
Algebra 2 is a challenging course for students, but I have a lot of experience with tutoring that subject. I tutored this course for ten semesters at the college level. I have also helped my two daughters through this course and they both have A's in the class.
I have been successful in breaking down the material for the students so that they truly understand the steps (there are sometimes a lot of steps in these problems) not just memorize the steps. I love to see the smiles on the students' faces when they understand and 'get it' which almost always happens!!
I will help with figuring out where to start solving questions on the SAT test and how to manage your time to complete all the questions.
