About Roger


Bio

Bay Area credentialed math teacher available for tutoring Advanced Math. I have taught Math at the high school level for the past 6 years. I have also tutored high school math including Precalc Honors and AP Calc AB and BC and college-level and business Calculus. I observe students to determine whether they are visual, auditory or kinesthetic learners and use convergent and divergent learning techniques to help students become more resourceful in the way they approach challenging problems.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have taught or tutoref Algebra for over 10 years and, whenever possible, try to make it more fun and interesting by connecting the math concepts to real-world applications.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have taught and tutored Algebra 2/Math 3/Trigonometry for more than a decade. Whenever possible, I make real-world applications to more deeply teach the subject. Algebra 2/Math 3 is more challenging than Algebra 1/Math 1 and follows Geometry/Math 2 so in order to receive a top grade in the class, I always tell my students to spend twice as much time on their studies and to review foundational concepts such as combining fractions, operations with negatives and factoring polynomials as often as possible.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have taught and tutored AP Calculus for more than a decade and the majority of my students have received a 5 on the AP exam. When I teach Calculus, I make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students relate more to history and culture so I'll discuss the evolution of unique math concepts. Calculus has a natural connection to science, especially Physics, so I make those connections whenever possible. I also find real-world applications for the Calculus concepts so students see how relevant the math is to their lives.
Geometry,

Geometry

When I teach math concepts such as Geometry/Math 2, I try to make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students relate more to the language of math so I'll discuss the etymology of unique math terms. Math has a natural connection to history and science and Geometry/Math 2 especially connects well to the arts and architecture. I also find real-world applications for the math concepts so students see how relevant math is in their lives.
Precalculus

Precalculus

When I teach math concepts such as Precalculus/Math Analysis, I try to make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students connect more with history and culture so I'll discuss the evolution of unique math concepts. I also find real-world applications for the Precalculus/Math Analysis concepts whenever possible, so students see how relevant math is in their lives. Precalculus/Math Analysis is more challenging than Algebra 2/Math 3/Trigonometry and covers more topics so I always tell my students that they should devote twice as much time to their Precalculus/Math Analysis studies in order to receive a top grade in the class.

Experienced, patient, involved

First lesson was excellent. Roger identified the areas we need to focus on. Future lessons are planned with a specific goal. Student also liked the teaching techniques.

Rishi, 18 lessons with Roger

Excellent Math Teacher!

Today was my son's first lesson with Roger. He will be teaching my son Calculus BC and we are looking forward to working with him. He seems very knowledgeable and patient!

Reeta, 8 lessons with Roger

Roger is great

Roger is a great teacher, and very patient and knowledgable. He has helped me become more confident with calculus which has helped immensely.

Tiana, 38 lessons with Roger

Very patient. Clear explanations.

Roger started by discussing the current topics that were being taught at school. He then proceeded to work on challenging homework assignments. Through these he helped learn new concepts, and shared resources for self-guided practice. Roger's calm demeanor takes the edge off tackling frustrating problems.

Nitya, 52 lessons with Roger

Knowledgeable and adaptive

Roger was able to help explain calculus problems to me at a great pace. He is able to adapt to your learning style very quickly. Great first experience with a tutor.

Vedant, 58 lessons with Roger

Excellent Calculus Tutor

Roger is easy going and quite flexible with scheduling lessons. He clearly explained the concepts that confused my son. He was able to get a 5 on the AP test and get an A in the class. It was a wonderful experience.

Ash, 35 lessons with Roger

Roger is very thorough and knowledgeable tutor.

Roger covered College Business Calculus. He was very patient and took the time to make sure I understood concepts. He was a very good tutor, I would recommend him.

Payton, 9 lessons with Roger

One of the Best!

Roger is a great tutor! He knows what my son needs to improve in school and hits all the right marks. I would highly recommend him as a tutor for anyone who needs help understanding material and doing homework in school.

Loc, 39 lessons with Roger

Trustworthy, Reliable, Patient, Insightful and supportive of teenagers

Roger has been tutoring my grandson in Pre-Calculus for half a year. He is a saint to deal with the scheduling issues, conflicts and changes due to my grandson being on two basketball teams. Also, extremely important to me is that he is trustworthy, sensitive to the needs of the student, and he is extremely appropriate in his rules (need parent present to tutor in home, no distractions e.g. "friends" hanging around the session, etc.).
