Shoshanas awesome in what she does in helping with Math and getting ready for Praxis math test and gaining a better knowledge of math !
Shoshana is a very patient tutor. She's great at Math. Her hard work and dedication helped me pass the Praxis Core Mathematics for Educators. I highly recommend her.
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.
I taught Algebra 1 for 3 years.
I am certified to tutor in the Praxis due to the nature of the exam and the following scores from when I completed the exam on 4/11/2009: Praxis I-Math- 186, Reading - 186, Writing - 179 (out of 200). I am familiar with Praxis II Exams including: Special Education Praxis, Middle School Math 4-8, and the Biology Praxis Exam. I have also been a teacher for 5+ years.
I have 3 years of experiences as a High School Math Teacher teaching Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and Geometry.
I teach advanced Algebra 1 and have taught geometry for over 5 years at a private school. I've tutored in there de subjects as well, via Wyzant and through my own private practice.
