About Rapi

I am a mathematics teacher, with more than 40 years of mathematics teaching experience at the public and private high school, community college and University level. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to accommodate diverse student needs by assisting all styles of learners, offering individualized and extracurricular support, as well as integrating personally developed ambitious and effective material. A highlight of my career and example of my work is my experience as a Mathematics coach with highly motivated and competitive students, training for Mathematical Olympiads. My teaching methods vary depending on the student needs, but I encourage learning by using a number of different methods.
It is my dedication to my profession, the theoretical and practical vast amount of knowledge that I have in the field that I would be offering in Calculus, Differential Equations, Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Advanced Calculus, Linear Algebra, Probability, Real Analysis, etc.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is the math subject that represents basic ideas of mathematics to students. In my career as a mathematics teacher, I have taught this discipline many years and have helped my students to create a solid background in Algebra in order to understand and learn mathematics in high level.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is continuation of Algebra 1, and its goal is to give students basic knowledge of algebra in order to help them understand and solve problems of real life and at the same time prepare them for building solid foundation for mathematics in general.
In my more than 40-years career, I have taught it many years and have made it interesting for my students.

Calculus

One of the most important Math subjects is Calculus.
It is a branch of mathematics where elements of both geometry and algebra are combined. Calculus is necessary for studying the way things change from a mathematical standpoint. It has been founded in the 17th century by Leibniz and Newton and was developed primarily to solve problems in physics. Calculus is divided into Differential Calculus, which studies instantaneous rates of change or derivatives, and Integral Calculus, which is concerned with areas of mathematical functions or integrals. With the help of Calculus we can figure acceleration and position speed, find the area of oddly shaped spaces, figure trajectories of space shuttles, satellites, and missiles and aim them at moving planets or targets, and also solve many complicated problems from everyday life.

Differential Equations

I have taught Differential Equation courses many times and lately I had it as a math course in my Master's program.

Discrete Math

I have taught Finite Mathematics at Community College of Baltimore County and at Towson University many times. Both these subjects include concepts of Discrete Mathematics such as combinatorocs, probability, in different levels, set theory etc in different levels. They are math subjects that are relatively more related with everyday life.

Geometry

Geometry is a branch of mathematics that study properties plane figures,and solids,and measure surfaces and volumes of these objects. It includes Plane Geometry which studies plane figures like lines, circles and triangles and Solid Geometry which studies solids like spheres and cubes.
I have taught it many years and have seen that some students struggle to much with it. I have helped with them to successfully achieve their goal.

Linear Algebra

In my experience as a mathematics teacher, I have taught Liner Algebra for many years in my country before coming to the U.S.
I like the subject and am willing to teach it.

Precalculus

Pre-calculus is the preparation for calculus. It provides a solid foundation of algebraic and trigonometric skills necessary to achieve a mastery of calculus.
The study of the topics, concepts, and procedures of pre-calculus deepens students’ understanding of algebra and extends their ability to apply algebra concepts and procedures at higher conceptual levels, as a tool, and in the study of other subjects. The theory and applications of trigonometry and functions are developed in depth. New mathematical tools, such as vectors, matrices, and polar coordinates introduced, aim toward modeling and solving real-world problems.

Probability

Probability theory is the branch of mathematics concerned with the analysis of random phenomena. The outcome of a random event cannot be determined before it occurs, but it may be any one of several possible outcomes. The actual outcome is considered to be determined by chance. The central objects of probability theory are random variables, stochastic processes, and events or mathematical abstractions of non-deterministic events or measured quantities that may either be single occurrences or evolve over time in an apparently random fashion. Probability theory is essential to many human activities that involve quantitative analysis of large sets of data, because it serves as a mathematical foundation for statistics. A great discovery of twentieth century physics was the probabilistic nature of physical phenomena at atomic scales, described in quantum mechanics.

SAT Math

The SAT is a standardized test that colleges use to evaluate applicants in three subjects: reading, writing, and math. The math sections measure a student’s ability to reason quantitatively, solve mathematical problems, and interpret data presented in graphical form. These sections focus on four areas of mathematics that are typically covered in the first three years of American high school education: Arithmetic, Algebra and Functions, Geometry, and Data Analysis. The Algebra section was recently expanded to include basic College Algebra.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is a branch of mathematics that was developed to improve calculations in navigation and Astronomy. Its ideas are based on solving a triangle with the help of ratios defined in a right angle triangle called trigonometric functions. I have taught it many times in my teaching experience, and have helped my students achieve their goals.
