About Isaac

Hello!

My name is Isaac, and although I am new to WyzAnt (so no ratings yet), I have nearly 15 years of teaching and tutoring experience. At times I have tutored subjects like physics, chemistry, computer science and even English, but the majority of my experience is in math. I can help with all courses in the elementary, middle and high school curricula, and I am especially knowledgeable about the AP Calculus AB exam and the math portion of the SAT.

I am very easy-going, and I think you will find that I can make the material seem much easier (and even fun!). One of my former students had this to say: "Isaac is the best math teacher in the world! He teaches calculus and precalculus and is just an all round amazing guy. He knew his curriculum like the back of his hand. Many teachers know math but don’t know how to teach it. He was dynamic."

I look forward to hearing from you!

Best,
Isaac

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 1

I have close to 10 years of experience teaching Algebra, and I'm especially good at explaining the concepts in that students really understand. It's important for Algebra students to develop good habits now because they will need those skills for the rest of their math careers -- I can show you how to do problems correctly!

Calculus

Calculus is my favorite course to teach, and my students have consistently scored extremely well on the exam: last year nearly 90% of them passed. I know the structure and content of the exam forwards and backwards, and I have a wealth of resources to help you prepare.

CBEST

I have tutored all types of multiple-choice math tests, including the SAT and AP exams, and I am also very comfortable with the topics that appear on the CBEST. Finally, I have taken and passed the CBEST myself.

Prealgebra

I have close to 10 years of experience teaching Prealgebra, and I'm especially good at explaining the concepts in a way that students really understand. It's important for younger students to develop good habits now because they will need those skills for the rest of their math careers -- I can show you how to do problems correctly!

Precalculus

I've taught high school Precalculus five times, so I know the curriculum extremely well. Plus, since I also teach AP Calculus, I know exactly what topics to focus on in preparation for that course next year.

SAT Math

I used to work for Ivy West, so I've been thoroughly trained in the preparation of students for the SAT. Not only can I help you with the content of the exam, but I know all the little tricks to get you those precious extra points.
