“**Excellent First Lesson**”

I am an experienced math teacher and tutor with 4 years teaching experience (1 high school including Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II, and 3 middle school including Pre-Algebra and Algebra I) and 7 years tutoring math (grade 1 - 6, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, SAT, ACT, SSAT, GRE, and GMAT.) I have

Emily got my daughter caught up on a month's worth of precalculus material in an hour and a half. She really knows the material and can actually teach it in a way that a high schooler can both understand it and gain confidence. She is easy to communicate with and answers emails promptly.

Emily tutored my daughter who is 11 years old for a few weeks last school year. Emily was very patient and listened closely to my daughter as she struggled with word problems in fifth grade. Emily presented the problems in a way that my daughter understood and helped her over come some of the anxiety she felt tackling her homework.

Emily is patient, understanding, knowledgeable and quite simply a great tutor. I needed help reviewing (and learning) about math subjects so as to take a standardized test. Emily went out of her way to put together problem sets as we honed in on areas that needed further review. I am super happy I chose Emily to work with and I think you will be too.

Emily tutored by college aged daughter for a Math 6 course she was taking. Emily showed up prepared, having researched the type of math and gaining the curriculum for my daughter class so there was no down time when she came to tutor. She jumped right in breaking down the complex computations for my daughter, which definitely helped shed light on a type of math she was in the dark about.

Thanks Emily!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have taught all levels on the ACT other than Trigonometry. A student I tutored increased from a score of 21 to 29 on the math section of the ACT. I am well versed in all areas tested on the ACT and prepared to work with students of all levels, from those that need to work on the fundamentals of Algebra and Geometry to those going for top scores.

I taught Algebra 1 for two years to students ranging from special needs doing a two year Algebra 1 class to an honors class. Some students find Algebra very abstract and I have a variety of methods to use with these students including tactile and graphing data the student is interested in. I worked with one student in Algebra 1 at the end of the year to prepare for her final and just a few weeks she raised her grade from a C- to B+.

I have experience teaching Algebra 2 in the classroom to students with learning difficulties. I have tutored students in Algebra 2 as well. One student who I tutored throughout the school year maintained an A- average.

I have tutored students in Geometry and over the summer to prepare for Geometry in the upcoming school year. I like to make Geometry as visual and tactile as possible for my students so I use methods like origami, studying patterns, cutting and pasting, and even clay to make the subject come alive. I also have extensive experience teaching Geometry to students with learning difficulties.

I have had success tutoring students who substantially raised their scores on the GMAT math section. I have taught and tutored all of the subjects tested and I have worked on testing strategies as well, which are important on this test since calculators aren't allowed, and because it's given on a computer.

I have 3 years of experience teaching Prealgebra in the classroom. My students have ranged from students with disabilities to high-level achievers. I like to use games to master some of the lower concepts and visual and tactile methods for the abstract Algebra concepts that are introduced in Prealgebra.

Precalculus is a difficult course and different schools cover different subject matter. I have come in contact with a number of these courses both in my own education and while tutoring. Thanks to my experience and my degree in math I am well prepared for any of these classes, whether they focus on limits, trigonometry, advanced algebra, probability or other subjects.

I took upper-division probability at USC, a difficult course that went well beyond the standards like: permutations, combinations, and standard distributions. I also understand the math behind the probability-specific functions. I have successfully tutored a student to prepare for a final.

I am well versed in the math found on the SAT, having tutored a number of students in this area. I know both the concepts and the methods that the SAT uses that make concepts a student knows appear more difficult. I work with students both on content and strategy, which is essential to making the SAT math more manageable.

Trigonometry has always been one of my strongest areas in math. I have tutored one student in Trigonometry specifically, and others as a part of another math class. In Trigonometry the fundamentals are essential so I maintain a strong focus on definitions and understanding early concepts throughout the course.
