About Simon

My inspiration into teaching math started when I realized that I could elaborate material in a different way than my professors. As a college student, I know that time put into learning is rewarding. As a Fishhawk area private math tutor of 2 years I have personally seen the improvement in each and every one of my students in their classes. Students have told me that they understood more material in one session than several days of lecture. This feedback from my students is the reason that I tutor. I have worked in the Hillsborough Community College Math Lab and have an Academic Success Center tutoring certification.

I specialize in tutoring pre-algebra and algebra from middle school all the way to college. My objective in every session I attend to is to explain in as much detail as necessary with any single problem that the student is having trouble with. Each student is given a notebook that they will use in each of our sessions to take notes. I will guide them through a good note taking procedure and write side notes in their notebooks that help them remember the problem solving process. This notebook is useful for when the student is doing his/her homework and comes across a problem that he/she does not remember how to do. The student can resource to the notebook and figure out the problem. This exercises note taking/reading skills, which are very much needed when taking an exam.

Feedback from each sessions is a must because the opinion of each person is important. I encourage the students to be honest. I strive to be flexible with time and have a 4 hour cancellation policy, but I also offer makeup sessions.

For the convenience of my students, I give them the option of tutoring at the students home, meeting at a public location or online.

I am ready to inspire each student into learning mathematics effectively.

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.

Algebra 1

I have been privately tutoring algebra for the past two years and have had great success with a number of students. Since eighth grade I have been exposed to algebra and it came again in algebra 2. The same material came up in pre-calculus and again in calculus. I have seen it so much that it is like second nature which lets me explain any section in that class to the student in as many was as humanly possible.

Prealgebra

I currently tutor an 8th grader in pre-algebra and have tutored about 4 others in the past. It is a very important foundation for algebra 1 and 2 in high school. I am able to explain algebra in detail because i exercise algebra daily in my calculus class at Hillsborough Community College. Ive worked at HCC at the math lab tutoring math and have a great deal of experience with pre-algebra students. I am also ASC tutor certified through HCC.
