About Dalia

My educational background consists of a Bachelors of Science in Physics, and a Master of Science in Education, specializing in Secondary Mathematics and Physics, a few graduate courses in Applied (Semi-Conductor) Physics from Yale University’s PhD program, a minor in Mathematics, along with 10+ years experience in the Electronics/Engineering industry. I am certified to teach both Mathematics and Physics for grades 7-12 in CT.

I currently have 12 years experience teaching high school mathematics. My strategies as teacher and tutor, is to promote an understanding of the concepts of the problem in order to formulate a solution strategy.

I am also an A+ certified technician with a specialization in Dos/Windows environments. This includes hardware and software installation, troubleshooting and repair. I have over ten years of experience in the electronics industry, and have a working knowledge of Basic, Dos, Perl, HTML, Java and JavaScript programming languages. With this background, I am more able to show the student applications of the ideas incorporated into the mathematics or physics problem.

So, if you need help with your high school Physics or Mathematics homework, or help to prepare for your SAT’s, ACT Math or Physics; I’m your tutor!

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

As a CT certified Mathematics/Physics secondary teacher who has taught Mathematics for 12 years, I can help a student prepare for test taking, and can explain the concepts of the topics they'll encounter in the ACT Mathematics section. All topics from basic operations to Trigonometric functions in my area of expertise.

Algebra 1

ALGEBRA 1
Learning to use letters or variables to represent quantities, and using arithmetic to perform calculations on them is basically what Algebra does. In Algebra 1, I help the student to better understand the relationship between Algebra and the patterns/concepts in their day-to-day experiences. I cover topics ranging from the use of variables, to writing functions and expressions, including quadratic and exponential functions and expressions.
I am a CT certified Mathematics/Physics secondary teacher, who has taught Mathematics for 12 years.

Algebra 2

I am a CT certified Mathematics/Physics secondary teacher, who has taught Mathematics for 12 years. In Algebra 2, I can help you extend your knowledge of Algebra 1 to include more complex situations such as polynomial functions, Discrete Mathematics and matrices.

Calculus

I am a CT certified Mathematics/Physics Secondary teacher, who has taught Mathematics for 12 years. Having a degree in Physics and a minor in Mathematics, I have had to use Calculus to solve real world problems. I can give the student an insight into the concepts, applications and solution strategies involved in Calculus. Topics covered range from the Cartesian plane and function through conic sections, multiple integrations and infinite series.

Elementary Math

As a CT certified Mathematics/Physics Secondary teacher who has taught Mathematics for 12 years, I can help you understand the properties of the real number system and help you learn to perform basic calculations with real numbers, using arithmetic.

GED

I am a CT certified Mathematics/Physics Secondary teacher, who has taught Mathematics for 12 years. I have taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and SAT prep for multiple years. I can introduce time saving solution strategies, test taking techniques, and content review for all potential candidates of the GED.

Topics in the curriculum include, but are not limited to:
- Numbers and Number Operation
- Algebra and Functions
- Geometry and Measurement
- Data Analysis
- Statistics
- Probability
- Test Practice

General Computer
