University of Illinois (Math)

I have many years of full time teaching and tutoring Math. My goal is to work with each individual as they progress towards reaching their academic and professional goals. My many years of teaching experience has allowed me the opportunity to break down and explain challenging concepts with clarity and precision and have taught all levels of Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus at the Middle School, High School, AP and College levels to many dozens of students. I have specialized in helping adults take math tests that are required for work advancement.
Having studied math and economics at University of Illinois and later for my Master's at New York University I have a broad definition of the use of math in the world.

Working individually with a child can help them overcome some of the frustration and confusion that comes along with learning in a crowded classroom.
I have a great amount of patience and understanding to help the child develop his own learning style and guide him to work through the problems at his own pace to ensure that he truly understands the material. Learning is a step by step process and I know that I can guide each child through the steps they need to take to complete any and all challenges they may face, not just in school, but in life. I am very knowledgeable on all the curriculum and what each grade is expected to know.
Working together we will identify which aspects of math challenge you the most and work hard through structured lessons and homework assignments to increase your grades and exam results. I am confident I will help you receive the goals you set for yourself.
