About Aquila

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and have become interested in education through my contacts with professionals in the field as well as through my work experiences.

I have been tutoring math to under-served youth for almost six years. I’ve created programs, worked, and volunteered to help students achieve in academia. I have worked as a student teacher at Boys and Girls High School in Brooklyn, NY. The experience provided me the opportunity to work closely with educators and to prepare students for regents exams. Through persistence, my ability to make math easier for others, and a strong grasp of mathematical content knowledge, I was able to boost the confidence of my students and keep them engaged throughout their lessons.

In addition, through my community service activities I encouraged my students to consider new ways of thinking. I have learned how to be a better mentor to under-served youth. These are the skills that continue to help me get results for my students.

Not only am I an expert when it comes to mathematical content, I am an expert when it comes to helping others achieve that same level of understanding

I tutor both children, and adults. Feel free to contact me for more information, and thank you for your time.

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.

SAT Math

I have tutored students in SAT math and reading content for two years. I have a strong mathematical background because of my work experiences, and because of the coursework leading up to my undergraduate degree in mathematics. I also scored well on the SAT.
