About Anthony


Bio

I am a tutor who specializes in math tutoring. I have been tutoring individuals and groups for a few years on mathematic principles as simple as basic arthimetic to topics as advanced as differential calculus. I can help with AP and Regents test preparation and the stress that comes with it. I take great pride in seeing my students succeed and always care about the driving factors behind my students.

I am a tutor who specializes in math tutoring. I have been tutoring individuals and groups for a few years on mathematic principles as simple as basic arthimetic to topics as advanced as differential calculus. I can help with AP and Regents test preparation and the stress that comes with it. I take great pride in seeing my students succeed and always care about the driving factors behind my students. I don't just love seeing a student do well, I also love seeing someone excited to learn and grow as an individual, and I am always willing to be the stepping stone that can bring such an individual farther than they have ever achieved.

As for my experience: I have worked as a Teacher's Aide in a special education high school. I have also worked as a test prep specialist during the summer for two years and as an independent tutor for four years. When I teach, I use several methods when it comes to mathematics: combining the use of visual aids with drawing connections between abstract concepts and real life. For more advanced topics I use a variety of supplemental websites for both practice and explanative purposes. Before attending Mercy as a transfer, I was a student at Rutgers for Computer Engineering, taking courses such as linear systems and signals and differential calculus, where I had good grades. Most importantly though, I understand the motivational struggles and conceptual blockades that come with learning math, which I experienced teaching in a special education high school.

My previous experience with tutoring has been typically positive. Even though I am a younger tutor I have a great ability to connect with my students and get them motivated to be successful with their schoolwork. I will try my hardest to show you and your son or daughter that I am an excellent fit for helping out with learning math, whatever kind of mathematics it might be! You can contact me to learn a little bit more about my teaching methods and typical curriculum when teaching a specific subject. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile!

Statistics

Statistics

I have taken college statistics at Middlesex County College for two semesters while going to a magnet high school on the campus called Middlesex County Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Technologies. I start my curriculum with basic statistics like mean, mode, and median as well as range and the 1st and 3rd quartiles. From there I would discuss more advanced topics like standard deviation, variance, the bell curve, z-score, weighted means, standard error, and the various statistic tests that are used in college statistics like t-test, ANOVA, z-test, and Chi-squared test. I also discuss probability and combinatorics and the discrete and continuous probability distributions. (Pmfs, cmfs, pdfs, and cdfs) I can also discuss the calculus behind these functions if needed.

Elementary Education

Common Core,

Common Core

At the Karafin School, a Special Education High School, I was hired to work with special needs students on all mathematics regents (NY common core) tests, specifically algebra 1, geometry and algebra 2. We used regents from previous years to assess the skill of students, than used the results to target weak areas in each specific subject. This was typically done in the second and fourth quarters of school as those were the times that NY regents typically are taken. I have also taught as a tutor elementary math to younger kids, within the common core standards. I am well versed in the math subjects covered by common core , as you can see with my qualifications in each specific subject listed on my page.
Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I have taught a variety of students at the Karafin School as a teachers aide, helping some of them understand the basics of numbers such as simple addition and subtraction into more complex topics like multiplying, dividing, and fractions and decimals. I know how to use multiple approaches to help students acquire understanding. Having worked in a special needs school, I understand the emotional side of learning as well and the patience that is needed with younger students.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have taken advanced math courses and taught as a teachers Aide in a special education high school teaching topics varying from low level algebra to precalculus. I passed the Wyzant proficiency test fully and can teach all of the various topics in algebra from the introduction of variables to polynomials, graphing of linear equations, quadratic functions, exponential functions, and the basics of statistics all covered in Algebra 1.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I am well versed with advanced algebra topics such as exponential/logarithmic functions and quadratic equations as well as introductory trigonometry and the fundamentals of discrete math. I can also explain imaginary numbers, polynomial division, and finding holes/ asymptotes of functions.
Calculus,

Calculus

I am confident in my abilities to teach differential calculus and integration based calculus. I typically start with the fundamentals of calculus, starting with limits and the formal definition of a derivative, continuing with the rules of differentiation, and eventually ending with applications of derivatives and partial derivatives, just for differential calculus. If a student is on a more advanced track we would then begin integral calculus by starting with the definition of the discrete integral. Then we would use the application of the discrete integral to come up with the definition of the continuous integral. After that we would end up discussing advanced integration techniques such as u-substitution and integration by parts. Eventually, we would discuss the most advanced topics such as arc length, series, and very low level differential equations, or multivariate calculus, all depending on what the student is preparing for or needs.
Geometry,

Geometry

I took geometry in the 8th grade, while still in middle school, and I passed the class with an A. More recently I taught at a special education high school as a teachers aide in NY, helping students prepare for the geometry Regent exam. I also worked alongside a teacher who gave me powerful techniques to assist in the learning of the standard geometry curriculum.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Pre-algebra is an advancement beyond basic arithmetic with introductions into new concepts for students, including integers and absolute value, rational and fraction arithmetic, basic graphing of points, squares and square roots, and finally introduction of variables in basic equations. I have a year and a half experience teaching as a teachers aide, and four years experience teaching independently as a tutor. I use visual aids and helpful shortcuts to help those struggling in pre-algebra. I also employ a variety of free resources that I give to the parents of students to help engage them in the learning process. For older students, I give them the free resources as assignments, and try to encourage them to become more independent and confident.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus is a combination of several areas of math, specifically algebra, trigonometry, and discrete math. I am able to discuss these topics in a way that will be able to properly prepare a student for calculus, first starting with topics such as complex numbers and exponents, moving on to topics like logarithmic functions and advanced use of trigonometric functions. I was taught precalculus at a magnet high school in Edison, NJ.
