About Melissa

I am a New York City public school teacher who currently teaches Algebra Common Core, Geometry Common Core and AP Calculus AB. I have experience teaching all levels of mathematics from 6th grade math through Calculus. This experience includes Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Precalculus and AP Calculus. I have been teaching in New York City for over 5 years and have experience working will all age levels.

I have also tutored for the last 7 years with various ages, including middle school through high school seniors studying for their SAT. I think that all students have the ability to do well in mathematics with one-on-one tutoring. Some students just need the extra attention they cannot always receive in the classroom! I love to work with children to not only develop their mathematics skills but also their math confidence! With practice, everyone can be a mathematician!

I can't wait to work with your child and help them gain the confidence they need to be successful in their math class!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT Math

I have tutored SAT and ACT mathematics for the last year to high school juniors. I like to have students work through problems and go over both their misconceptions and strategies to solve problems.

Algebra 1

I have taught high school Algebra for the last 9 years. I have experience with both the old New York State Regents Exams and with the new Common Core exams. I love to help students work through problem solving and to give them new ways to look at problems when they are struggling with methods they learn in class.

Algebra 2

I have taught high school Algebra 2 for the last 6 years in New York City. I also teach higher level mathematics so I have a good sense of what students will need to know from Algebra 2 to be successful in later mathematics classes.

Calculus

I have taught high school AP Calculus AB for the last 5 years. In addition to teaching high school calculus, I have tutored students for the AP Calculus exam and the students each received a 5. With hard work and extra help, many students have the ability to not only pass the AP exam but can do extremely well - even get a high qualifying score of a 5!

Geometry

I currently teach high school geometry and am introducing the new Common Core curriculum in my school. I love to work with high school students and believe they all have the ability to be successful in math with the right tools.

Prealgebra

I have been tutoring at the pre-algebra (middle school) level for over 10 years. I love working with this age group and think this is the age where most students start to fall behind. With the right tutor and the right focus, I can help your student to avoid falling behind at such a crucial age!

Precalculus

I have taught high school precalculus and calculus for the last 4 years! Teaching these high level mathematics subjects and preparing kids for college is one of my passions.

SAT Math

I have been a high school math teacher for the last 7 years and have worked on SAT prep with students for the last four years. In the most recent past, I have been tutoring students one-on-one with SAT math prep.

Trigonometry

I have worked with high school students teaching trigonometry for the last 5 years. I enjoy teaching trigonometry because of my background in engineering.

Excellent flexibility and patience — Melissa paces herself to my daughter's needs. She is always willing to go back and review a concept that's not clear, and tests understanding of a concept before moving on. ...
