Algebra 1,

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,

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.

I have an undergraduate degree in Mathematics and a Master's in Math Teaching. I work with students from grade 6 through to college.

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

Patient tutor

Herb was great and helped me tremendously with getting onto the course work I needed. I have a better understanding of the lessons that I needed to work on. Herb is awesome and I will definitely use him again.

Raissa, 1 lesson with Herb

Very clear and helpful

When Herb explains a concept to me, He goes in depth really making sure I understand what he is teaching me. He is very polite and patient with me and scheduling sessions is easy. He's very flexible with his time. Highly recommend him for Algebra.

Oryen, 1 lesson with Herb

Great tutor

My 16-year-old was struggling in math and Herb has helped her gain the skills and confidence to improve her grade. He's patient and caring. I would highly recommend Herb. Easy to schedule appointments with and flexible schedule as well. Thanks!

T, 8 lessons with Herb

Algebra

He was very patient and help her to understand different topics. She feels now more confident to move forward with her test.

Sandra, 1 lesson with Herb

Very helpful!

Called last minute to set up an appointment because my son missed some days and needed an entire AP algebra 2 lesson before a test tomorrow. He accommodated our needs and my 16 yo son got the help he needed. He tells me that Herb explains everything so he can easily understand the concepts. Math is not his strongest subject but Herb is great with explaining everything so my son feels confident he will do well on his test tomorrow! Thank you!

Lektra, 7 lessons with Herb

Excellent first session
