Elementary Math

Elementary Math

Math Facts, Basic Operations with Decimals, Fractions, and Percent are basic requirements in middle school math. Measurement, Geometric Facts such as terminologies, area, perimeter, & volume of geometric figures, Probability & Data Analysis/Graphs in Statistics, integers, and an introduction to Elementary Algebra are all important subjects in middle school math as well. Fractions must be mastered prior to Algebra One because there usually has no time in the secondary math curriculum to review fractions thoroughly. Secondary math students often forget how to do fractions. Their vague memory of fractions often prevents them from getting an A in a math class because somehow fractions are used at one time or another. Success in secondary math depends on its foundation, elementary and middle school math. As an middle school math tutor, I assist students in their mastery of the basic skills, especially in fractions. Once this foundation is firmly laid, secondary math will be easy for them later.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Core concepts in Alg 1 are solving linear equations & inequalities, simplifying exponents, performing basic operations involving polynomials, rational expressions, radicals, writing equations of lines, solving systems of linear equations in two variables, solving radical equations, and solving word problems. Algebra I is one of the most important math classes in high school because it is the foundation for higher math. Practice makes perfect. Being a math tutor for more than 20 years, I am committed to taking the important responsibility of providing my students with extra practice, guidance, and personal encouragement. I also nurture my students' self-confidence. With support, my students will be kept interested in learning Algebra I concepts and excel in this class.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Beyond a thorough review on basic Algebra I concepts at the beginning of the an Alg II textbook, core Algebra II curriculum includes basic operations with Matrices: ±, scalar products, products, & inverses; graphing families of functions; polynomials: synthetic division for polynomials; rational roots for polynomials in second degree and higher; the binomials Theorem; system of 2 by 2 or 3 by 3 linear equations via matrix; basic operations with complex numbers; composite & inverse functions; exponential and log functions; conics; sequences & series; periodic functions and trigonometry. This is a long list of math skills, where many skills are seen for the first time by the students; however, practice makes perfect.

Geometry,

Geometry

Core concepts in Geometry are deductive reasoning, concepts related to parallel lines, proving congruent & similar triangles, theorems on right triangles & circles, and calculating perimeters, areas, and volumes of geometric figures. Geometry provides abundant opportunities for students to reason mathematically. It teaches students thinking, communicating, and problem solving skills. Applying axioms, postulates, and theorems in solving problems are practices that help students to become independent learners. In Geometry, the more theorems are stored in the students' repertoire, the easier is the course.

Precalculus,

Precalculus

Core concepts in Pre-Calculus include algebra in the coordinate plane, system of equations, roots of polynomials, functions & their inverses such as polynomials & rational functions, exponential & log functions, and an introduction to trigonometry, with some variations among different Pre-Calculus textbooks. It also includes a review of major topics in Algebra II in the beginning chapters. My strength in tutoring math is two folded. One the one hand, I can put abstract math simple enough for all students to comprehend and on the other hand, I have the methodology to help students, who lack pre-requisites to a math class, to understand on level math concepts.

CBEST,

CBEST

Contents of CBEST include: arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and formulas. Actually problems in the "formulas" category are formulas taken from the previous three categories. Problems from the "algebra" category are taken only from algebra 1. So there are actually three categories in CBEST. In light of the above categories, CBEST is less complicated than SAT tests because SAT requires more than CBEST. The latter has problems taken from algebra 2 and some introductory trigonometry, which are subjects beyond algebra 1. Since I am certified for tutoring SAT at WyzAnt, I should be certified for tutoring CBEST as well.

Very helpful - Highly Recommended

My daughter was having trouble with a concept so I suggested a tutor to help clarify and master it. . Nancy was able to help on short notice. She explained concepts very well and was given a solid "thumbs up" by my daughter for the two lessons. We will definitely look to Nancy for help if she asks or requires it in the future. Highly recommended tutor.

Great maths tutor

Just bit more than two months with Nancy, my daughter changes from being scared of maths to being confident with maths. Nancy has very positive attitude to encourage my daughter and has very designed specific study plan for her. She enjoys her class much now with Nancy...

Isabel , 29 lessons with Nancy

She’s great! Very knowledgeable and patient with my daughter.

Nancy worked with my daughter’s current lesson in Algebra 2, specifically quadratic equations. She was patient with my daughter and we can’t wait to see her again for another lesson.

Roffel, 8 lessons with Nancy

Calm, knowledgeable, and reliable

My 11-year-old son was so comfortable and felt very relaxed after his tutoring session. In the beginning, he was a bit nervous about meeting a new tutor...but she was great, and they did tons of work in the 1 hour. Thank you, Nancy!

Samira, 14 lessons with Nancy

Caring, passionate & knowledgable

Needed help since my daughter was having problems with her advanced geometry class. Nancy was amazing. She listened and explained the concepts in different ways that my daughter could understand and felt good about. I cannot thank Nancy enough for bringing smiles and confidence back to my daughter. We are lucky to have Nancy on our side.

Better than we ever could have dreamed!

This year, Abby took the honors Geometry class at Miramonte as a freshman. For the first few months, she was struggling to get good grades in the class and challenged by many of the new concepts that come in geometry. Nancy has been absolutely incredible. Since we started tutoring with Nancy, Abby has gotten A’s on almost all assignments and tests and more importantly, her level of stress about the class is practically non-existent. Nancy has helped her understand rather than memorize concepts, resulting in a much improved performance in the class. We are so grateful to have found Nancy and her patient and thorough approach and will absolutely continue to use her services through the years as Abby progresses through her math courses. Thank you, Nancy!!!

Abby, 9 lessons with Nancy

Passionate, and professional

We had our first session with Ms. Nancy. She was professional yet very warm. My son gained so much knowledge in one hour with Ms. Nancy than any other tutors he had in the past. She is passionate about teaching and it certaintly shows that she cares. We look forward to our next session with Ms. Nancy.
