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 Math

ACT preparation is best approached by practice. My students take practice exams and I review the areas of weakness whether they related to Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, or other foundation material. I also discuss test taking strategy to include careful reading of the test question, recording important information, process of elimination for multiple choices, and expected areas of knowledge.

I have a Master's degree in Math Teaching. I have taught and tutored math ranging from basic skills to Calculus.

Algebra 1

I have taught high school math and tutored numerous students in Algebra 1. I volunteer at a local high school where I assist students in Algebra 1 every week.

I have a graduate degree in Math Teaching and undergraduate degree in Mathematics with a minor in Education.

My approach is to identify the student's math skills including Algebra 1 knowledge and to then suggest and implement a plan to aid the student in reaching his or her goals.

Whether the tutoring session involves algebraic expressions, solving equations and inequalities, graphing linear, quadratic, or exponential functions, or other Algebra topics, I have the expertise to teach and motivate, and ultimately observe the student achieve success.

Algebra 2

I have taught high school math and tutored several students in Algebra 2.

I have a graduate degree in Math Teaching and undergraduate degree in Mathematics with a minor in Education.

My approach is to identify the student's foundation knowledge including the prerequisite knowledge in Algebra 1. Then I will review prior Algebra 2 work from the student. This will lead to an implementation plan to aid the student in reaching his or her goals.

Whether the tutoring session involves systems of equations, logarithms, word problems, inverse functions, trig identities, conic sections, complex number or other Algebra 2 topics, I have the expertise to teach and motivate, and ultimately observe the student achieve success.

SAT Math

SAT preparation is best approached by practice. My students take practice exams from one or more of the fine preparation texts, such as Kaplan or Princeton, and I review the areas of weakness whether related to Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, or other foundation material. I also discuss test taking strategy to include careful reading of the test question, recording important information, process of elimination for multiple choices, and expected areas of knowledge.

I love that Herb takes time to assess and tailor his approach. Our son is 17, and respects his tutor, and looking forward to working with him more. We just started with Herb, but in the few sessions, we can tell he is serious about helping our son achieve his goal. Thanks, Herb!!
