Sometimes you need the best. Sometimes you want the best. I enjoy helping others succeed. I have been tutoring and teaching mathematics privately for over 10 years with a highly successful track record.

Sometimes you need the best. Sometimes you want the best. I enjoy helping others succeed. I have been tutoring and teaching mathematics privately for over 10 years with a highly successful track record.

I understand the patience and adaptability that are essential to a student's progression and understanding of mathematics and its related problems. I also understand that different students require different paces and various methods of teaching. I strive to adapt to each individual student's needs and learning style.

Mathematics has always made sense to me and I do my best to provide the same level of intuition and confidence to my students. I encourage you to read my reviews from other students and parents!

Study Skills

Study Skills

I currently work with two students who both have ADHD. I myself have ADHD and therefore understand the personal importance of study skills. I teach my students that it is equally important to relax and reward yourself with some free time after doing some homework or working on a big assignment. Organization is key, and even more specifically SETTING DEADLINES. If a student is not exactly sure when something is due, he or she will feel less strongly about where they exactly stand. And even more importantly, knowing deadlines and creating your own daily schedule makes life that much easier. The two students that I currently work with are a sophomore in high school and a repeat second grader. Both require study skill habits in their own unique way, and I manage to cater to their specific needs quite well. I am able to set deadlines for my students and then after a while, they can really see how straightforward and simple organization of one's time can be. Working with the TV off and avoiding any unnecessary distractions is just as important when talking about study skills. The environment one works in is critical to one's success. Pythagorean didn't have MTV or an iPhone to distract him from developing his famous right triangle theorem!

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is the "bread & butter" of all high school math. In order for a student to be successful in future math courses, he or she needs to be strong in algebra. I excelled in algebra when I was a student. I can certainly help others grasp the subject and gain the knowledge of the fundamental topics within the subject.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is an extension of Algebra 1, and sometimes I find myself covering the topics of Algebra 1 or Pre-Algebra with some students--this is okay, but more importantly, it is necessary!
Calculus,

Calculus

I have a high aptitude for calculus and explaining the concepts to students. I have taught AP Calculus at the high school level. It is my favorite subject to teach and tutor. Related math courses for which I have passed with a 3.0 or higher include: * Precalculus/Trigonometry * Calc with Analytic Geometry I * Calc with Analytic Geometry II * Calc with Analytic Geometry III * Differential Equations
Geometry,

Geometry

I currently teach geometry at Booker High School in Sarasota. I did well in geometry as a student. I also took three calculus courses with analytic geometry as a college student.
Prealgebra,

I am fluent in all algebraic topics up to Algebra II Honors.

Precalculus

I passed Precalculus with an A in both high school and in college. I also taught this subject as a math teacher in public high school. I have logged hundreds of hours of teaching and tutoring precalculus topics.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

The SAT is a BIG deal. And I can clearly express and have you or your child understand the material and mathematical concepts behind the problems. It is important that your son or daughter know how to set up problems with the ability to express word problems into expressions and equations--and I can do this! I want your son or daughter to get the best score possible so they can have better potential to get into the school they want a little more easily.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

Trigonometry makes up the significant portion of "pre-calculus" courses. I have been able to make trigonometry much easier to understand and comprehend for many students over the years. Some teachers or professors do not focus on certain fundamentals of trigonometry, thus making it more difficult to fully grasp the material and even more importantly, how to efficiently obtain solutions to problems. I make sure to go over these fundamentals each and every time I sit down with a student for the first time, especially because these fundamentals are referred to over and over again throughout the course.
