About Madeleine


Bio

I believe students should be confident in their math skills. By getting good grades in school, their options in life (e.g. jobs, career paths) are kept open. I gauge where the student is at in knowing the concepts by having him/her work out the problems. Every problem has two parts: the first is recognizing what kind of problem it is (e.g. quadratic equation) and the second is the mechanics of working it out (e.g. arithmetic skills, factoring, quadratic formula). I have been tutoring...

I have been tutoring since I was in high school myself. I keep it simple and fun! I have given students confidence in their math skills which has transferred into overall confidence in themselves. We both roll up our sleeves and do the problems together. I have a BA in Mathematics from Cal State Fullerton.

Subjects

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

We will study elementary math concepts including: whole numbers, measurement units, fractions, equations and formulas, and data representation and analysis. In addition, we will cover basic two-dimensional geometry, rounding and significant figures, estimation, decimals, percentages, proportions, negative numbers, exponents and radicals. Lastly, we will study compass-and-straightedge, congruence, similarity, patterns, and slopes.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

We have fun with algebra topics such as factoring, solving and graphing linear equations, word problems, and solving a system of equations, just to name a few. I turn factoring into a fun and efficient game. And, I really enjoy connecting with the student to break down word problems by translating them into workable math problems, and thus decreasing the student's anxiety and fear.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 has a whole host of new concepts including advanced factoring, function transformations, sequences, and series. We learn the relationship between exponential and log functions. I also enjoy connecting with the student to demonstrate how synthetic division, long division, factoring, finding the zeros, graphing a polynomial, and evaluating a polynomial are all related.
Calculus,

Calculus

We will study calculus concepts such as limits and continuity; differentiation and integration of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic, and hyperbolic functions; related rates; and optimization problems. In addition, we will study applications of integration such as volume.
Geometry,

Geometry

I really enjoy tutoring logic, inductive reasoning, deductive reasoning, and two column proofs. I connect with the student to create a logical and efficient two column proof based on deductive reasoning using theorems, postulates, and definitions. We have fun with proofs on popular topics such as parallel lines, congruent triangles, and CPCTC.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

We will study prealgebra concepts including: natural number arithmetic, integers, fractions, decimals, negative numbers, operator precedence (PEMDAS), and factorization of natural numbers. We will also study properties of operations such as associativity and distributivity. Lastly, we will cover square roots, powers, and the coordinate plane.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus is a catchall of topics that need to be in place before going on to calculus. Included among these topics are conic sections, polar coordinates, vectors, matrices, and probability theory. I also enjoy connecting with the student to explore the concept of the limit and how it relates to the slope of a secant line.
SAT Math

SAT Math

We will cover subjects including: Heart of Algebra, Passport to Advanced Math, Problem Solving, and Data Analysis. In addition, we will include geometry, trigonometry, and problems with complex numbers. Also, we will put together a weekly study program to increase the score. I also do test prep for SAT Math I and SAT Math II subject tests.

ACT Math,

ACT Math

We will prepare for the ACT by studying the following subjects: Pre-Algebra, Elementary Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Plane Geometry, and Trigonometry. We will also cover matrices. In addition, we will put together a weekly study program to increase the score.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra gives us some very useful skills to add to our skill set. We can now learn three more ways to solve a system of linear equations. Namely, we can use matrix inverses, Cramer's rule, or Gaussian elimination. We can also find the areas of triangles and parallelograms using determinants.

Probability,

Probability

We will study concepts such as the fundamental counting principle, combinations, permutations, sample space, independent events, conditional probability, and tree charts. We will also cover the probability of "and" as well as "or" events. In addition, we will cover basic set theory.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

We have fun with topics including the unit circle, SOHCAHTOA, the Law of Sines, and the Law of Cosines. I show the student how to use easy, logical, and intuitive formulas for finding the arc length of a circle and the area of a sector. We derive and work with trig formulas such as the sin and cos of a sum or difference, half angle, and double angle. And, I show the student quick and easy ways to graph all of the six trig functions.

Excellent

When asked if my son would like to continue with Madeleine he said absolutely after just one lesson. They went through his homework and almost completed all of it.

Dana, 5 lessons with Madeleine

Knowledgeable

Madeleine is very knowledgeable. There are a lot of teacher that are knowledgeable but she has the ability to teach the student and make them understand the information she is teaching them. This is a gift. She is an awesome teacher.

Suneet, 21 lessons with Madeleine

Best AP Calculus Tutor

Madeleine is honestly the best AP Calculus tutor out there. She has an amazing way of explaining all topics and goes out of her way to make sure that you understand material by providing extra notes, worksheets, and videos for concepts. I highly recommend!

Joey, 24 lessons with Madeleine

Energetic and Patient

Madeleine worked with my 14 year-old daughter on her algebra homework, focusing on factoring and polynomials. Madeleine is energetic and patient at the same time. She really took her time dissecting problems to make sure my daughter understand the concepts.

Angela, 1 lesson with Madeleine

Great tutor!

Madeleine is great at helping my daughter understand geometry so she gets the concepts! She has helped my daughter improve her grades. Definitely recommend her!

Rana, 17 lessons with Madeleine

Focused and cares

Madeline is helping me with Precalc and trig and she is very patient and really cares that you get the explanation. She is always on time and makes sure to understand your goals and teaches in depth so you get the problem

Sohel, 32 lessons with Madeleine

Very patient. Great first experience for my student!

A+++ She is wonderful! Can’t say enough about how great she is. So helpful and has really helped with math skills.

Marzieh , 12 lessons with Madeleine

Excellent Tutor!!

Madeline has been working with my daughter for several months. My daughter was placed into Honors Geometry with Madeline's help as a freshman. She knows her math.

Carol, 109 lessons with Madeleine

She is the best

I don't really have much to say but look at her reviews they speak volumes. After my daughters 1st session I could see how much better she understood her studies. On Saturday night she even studied math. That blew me away. You can't go wrong with Madeleine and looking forward to her tutoring for my daughter!

Jawahar, 27 lessons with Madeleine

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She is really, really good and really fun to work with. Especially for an adult who hasn't done math in a lot of years and needs to pass a test. I highly recommend her.
