About Seth

About Me:
I am certified to teach mathematics and science to both middle school and high school students. I have over 5 years of teaching and tutoring experience and have helped hundreds of students with the following subjects:Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Liberal Arts Math, Calculus, ACT, SAT, Physics, Chemistry, FLVS, online courses, and more!
My tutoring approach:

My tutoring approach is effective as my very first step is to get a baseline and assess the student's strengths and weaknesses. Within just the first session, I am able to overcome some of the obstacles a student has been struggling with. I break down complicated problems into a way that is understandable for the student. Math and science is cumulative and it builds on itself. They are subjects that require knowledge from previous sessions, so it is essential I fill in all the gaps where I can identify weaknesses. My goal is to not only motivate students but to build their confidence so they can perform to the best of their ability in the classroom. I develop a personalized plan tailored to the student's needs and ensure to accurately measure the student's progress during each session. With my approach, students can expect to see improvements with their homework and tests, while developing an understanding and appreciation for math and science.

I look forward to working with your son or daughter!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

Have previously tutored students on the ACT English section and I consistently score between 30 to 31 out of 36 (perfect score).

ACT Math

I scored a 34 on the math section of the ACT, 80th percentile on the Quantitative GRE, and have tutored math at Palm Beach State college.

ACT Reading

I have helped countless students preparing for the ACT Reading section. I worked at a test-prep company that specialized in standardized testing. I have the best information regarding timing, strategies, and tricks to increase ones score by several points. Several points on the ACT means a lot! I have had quite a few parents thank me for tutoring their son or daughter and helping them achieve a substantial improvement on the exam. After my help, one student who was waitlisted at FSU, was granted immediate acceptance after I helped him increase his ACT by 5 points over the course of two months!

ACT Science

I have tutored many students on the ACT Science section. Graduating with a B.A in Biology with a pre-medical curriculum sets me apart from other tutors. In addition, I worked at a test-prep company that specializes in ACT and SAT prep so I know the ins and outs of timing, strategies, and tricks to excel on this standardized test.

Algebra 1

I have previously tutored students with Algebra 1 and received an A in the course. Scored 80th percentile on the quantitative section of the GRE.

Algebra 2

Have previously tutored students in Algebra 2

Anatomy

I majored in Biology from the University of Rochester. Having studied anatomy and physiology, and taking a cadaver lab, I am competent in medical terminology and the skills tested for this course. I have tutored students in both anatomy and physiology at both the high school and college level.

Calculus

I have a BA in biology, taking a rigorous pre-medical curriculum, and have tutored Calc 1 at PBSC.

Common Core

I am very familiar with the Common Core State Standards. These standards are aligned to the expectations of colleges, workforce training programs, and employers. The standards promote equity by ensuring all students are well prepared to collaborate and are ready to take on the real world. My instruction prepares students to perform exceptionally well on the Common Core. I supplement with Common Core worksheets and make sure a student has mastered the objectives outlined.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience helping elementary students at Timber Trace, Jupiter Elementary and Beacon Cove Intermediate in math. These students are still developing inside and outside the classroom so it is important to provide them with a strong foundation. My natural excitement for math and science show students that these subjects can be fun and exciting!

Geometry

Have tutored geometry to students

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.A degree in Biology from the University of Rochester, with a pre-medical background. I have taken Organic Chemistry I, II with labs and have worked in a research lab involving peptide self-assembly, amyloid peptides, bioorganic chemistry and supramolecular chemistry.

Prealgebra

I have tutored Pre-algebra to 7th and 8th graders.

Precalculus

I have experience tutoring many students in Pre-calculus at the high school level. I tutored at Palm Beach State College and the majority of the students their struggled with this subject. I was able to provide students with a strong foundation so that they would be confident to take on Calculus the following year!

SAT Math

I can score in the 90th percentile on the SAT Math section. In addition, I use the official SAT study guide when tutoring students, and I have test prep material that focuses on essential strategies needed to perform well on the test.

Study Skills

I have completed a college level course on study skills. The course focused on organization, time management, and test preparation among many other topics. We touched on "metacognition" which means thinking about ones own thinking. Time management is also an important component of study skills, since students require the skills and discipline to prioritize assignments and set aside time to study. When students adequately learn how to prepare and focus on certain tasks, these study skills often serve as the foundation for learning.

Trigonometry

Have previously tutored students in Trigonometry

Smart and relaxed

Seth established a relaxed learning environment. He jumped right in and started helping my son understand concepts. I have set up a recurring schedule with him. Looking forward to my son having more confidence with Algebra. Seth is an excellent communicator with parent and child.
