About Parker

Hello!

Prior to moving to DC to pursue a law degree from Georgetown Law, I taught algebra and geometry at a high school in the South Bronx. While teaching, I was concurrently enrolled in a Master's program, earning a master's of science in education from St. John's University. I hold a B.A. in both economics and history from The University of Texas at Austin, where I volunteered with the Big Brother Big Sister Program and coached swimming for kids ages 6 - 18.

Throughout my teaching career, I had the opportunity to work with hundreds of students. The high school I taught at is in the poorest congressional district in the country. My students' academic challenges reflected those of other students in underserved, high need areas. Despite these challenges, I worked to enable 80% of my students to pass the rigorous New York State Algebra Exam each year. Prior to my employment, less than 40% of the students at my school of employment passed. In addition, 20% of my students earned the "College Ready" score of at least an 80. In the year prior to my employment, only one student earned this score.

My teaching experience provided the experience for me to realize that every student wants to succeed academically; however, given a myriad of circumstances, students face challenges that work to disengage them from the learning process. My teaching and tutoring experiences provide me with the insight and skills to help students with all learning styles achieve success.

I look forward to the opportunity to get to know your student as we work together to master their coursework.

Cheers,

Parker

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.

Linear Algebra

For the last two years, I have taught Integrated Algebra in the Bronx. Linear Algebra is covered in full within the Integrated Algebra Curriculum. I possess a Master's of Science in Education with a focus on Math for grades 7 - 12. 80% of my students passed the New York State Algebra Regents Exam, despite less than 15% of the students entering high school at grade level proficiency in math. The highest level of math that I took was Calculus III. In high school, I was the Algebra Student of the Year my freshman year of high school.
