I am a former math teacher with 7 years of experience teaching middle and high school. I have 18 years of tutoring experience with students of all ages, including adults. I have a Bachelors Degree in Mathematics and a Masters Degree in Math Education. I have worked with students to prepare for many different standardized exams, including the SAT and GRE. I like to use real-life examples and games whenever possible.

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 1

I taught middle school and high school for seven years. For six of those seven years, I taught at least one Algebra 1 class. I taught four Algebra 1 classes during my last year of full-time teaching.

Algebra 2

I have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a Master's Degree in Secondary Math Education. I taught Algebra 2 in high school for 2 years and I have tutored many college students in College Algebra (which typically covers the same topics as Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus).

Elementary Math

Before becoming a middle school and high school teacher, I worked as a para-educator in elementary schools for 3 years. During that time, I was responsible for creating math materials for several classrooms and I also worked one-on-one with students to help them with math assignments.

Geometry

I taught high school Geometry for 5 years. During that time, I worked in 3 schools in 3 different cities, all with a very different student population. So I have experience teaching Geometry to students at every level.

Regents

I worked in the NYC School system for 2.5 years. During that time, much of my time was spent helping students prepare for the Regents Math A exam. I taught 3 classes of Math A and one remedial Math A class for students who had already taken the exam and failed.
