About Sheldon

My name is Sheldon R. I am a state-certified math teacher. Being state-certified means that I am qualified to teach in any high school or middle school in the state of Florida. I have been tutoring all areas of math for over 15 years. I specialize in on-line tutoring in all math areas. I am available 7 days a week. If you contact me, I should always get back to you within 4 hours.

When I work with a student, I provide personalized attention. Proper tutoring is when the tutor explains the concept to the student and the student then personally answers subsequent problems. The Tutor should not be doing the student's homework for them. When working with a student it is important to first see what materials need to be covered, including any upcoming test or homework that is due the next day or two.

I work with elementary, middle school, high school, college and adult students. I can provide lessons in basic math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and 2, College Algebra, Geometry, Trig, and Pre-Calculus. I also tutor high school Chemistry.

I also do standardized test preparation for SAT, ACT, PSAT, GED, FTCE, GRE, GMAT, and most other standardized tests for the mathematics section.

I can work with gifted students so they are at the top of their class, average students who may not have a classroom teacher who explains the concepts properly, or with students who are academically challenged.
All tutoring requires patience and the ability to explain the topics at different levels.

My favorite experience is when a light goes on in the student's mind and that student finally understands the math concept, even if the classroom teacher had tried to explain the given topic. Another good feeling is when a student calls you after he/she gets his/her test grade and it is an 'A' or 'B'.

I have great passion for my students and enjoy working in all math areas from basic skills through College level classes. I have an innate ability in explain a math concept 2 different ways, and will emphasize whatever approach works well for the given student.
