## Excellent tutor

Baskaran, 25 lessons with NancyShe is teaching trigonometry and precalculus. She is reviewing what my daughter learned that week in school and she teaches her what she is going to learn the following week.

I am a graduate of the University of Miami, Florida, achieving a B.S. and a M.S. degree, majoring in math. My strength in teaching math is my ability to make abstract math understandable to students. Confidence is an attitude that makes a world of difference in learning. I will change my students' attitude toward math positively and provide them with math skills, so thorough that they will feel confident in doing math independently and successfully. With confidence, they will raise their math...

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.

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. Being a math tutor for more than 20 years, I am committed in 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 student(s) will be kept interested in learning algebra I concepts and excel in this class.

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.

SAT Math,
#### SAT Math

Content of SAT is taken from students' high school math classes with problems that are more sophisticated than those in the textbooks. The key to scoring high on SAT is to have a thorough understanding of the math courses and apply students' knowledge to SAT. Quick reviews, prior to the test, can refresh students' memory on formulas needed for the test. Having strategies to approach test items, and knowing the format of the test are also helpful to the mastery of this test.

## Wonderful!

My daughter said nothing but great things about Nancy and is looking forward to her next lesson. A few things mentioned was that Nancy was very patient, and really helped her learn the concept and truly helped her understand the subject. Thanks again!

Kiel, 3 lessons with Nancy

## patient, kind, and supportive Math tutor

Nancy is teaching our 5th grader math; she is patient, kind, and supportive. Her approach to teaching him the concept and lessons one week in advance of school is exciting and gives him confidence when he is in the classroom studying the same math lesson. it's so great to see him interested, confident and filled with enthusiasm studying math. Nancy did a great job and she is support our soon you so much. Thank you! We highly recommend her!

Mo, 16 lessons with Nancy

## excellent tutor

Nancy is tutoring my 13 year old daughter in geometry. She shows patience while conveying her knowledge effectively and articulately. When my daughter needs help, she will ask to work with Nancy specifically.

## Great Teacher!

Nancy is knowledgeable and teaches math in a clear and understandable manner. She is very patient in her explanation of difficult material. My daughter works well with Nancy and plans to continue tutoring with her in the future. Nancy is flexible with her time and tries her best to accommodate my daughter's time availability.

## My kids says math makes sense now!

We choose Nancy to help my daughter with 8th grade math and are so glad we did. After the first tutoring session my daughter was so much more relaxed about math and said Nancy made math make sense to her. We are so happy with the help and positive attitude Nancy brings to her tutoring sessions.
