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!

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 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.

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.

Looking forward to the next session!

My daughter liked Melissa's demeanor and she was happy that she learned a new technique in factoring. Looking forward to the next session.
