Statistics

Tutoring Statistics, typically to high school Seniors and College Freshmen. I help them better understand their classroom lessons, by discussing the material, answering and asking questions, doing homework together, reviewing material, teaching missed classes, extending their thinking. Especially, I help them move from dry statistics to much more interesting applications to their own interest, such as business, sports, nursing, criminal justice, anthropology, international relations, etc.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have 5 years of experience teaching high school math including Algebra 1, and have tutored dozens of Algebra students one-on-one. Algebra is such a fundamental skill for all further math courses, that it really needs to be mastered. And to do so, students need to have solid capabilities from earlier pre-algebra years, such as with arithmetic, fractions, decimals, negative numbers. I assess those abilities early in our sessions together, and incorporate practice as needed. Then students are more successful in learning the so-important skills in Algebra such as solving equations and inequalities, graphing functions, factoring, solving word problems. I make sure they master the Algebra topics, and often while relating them to each student's own interest such as sports, music, gaming, dance, or possible career path, and occasionally using on-line drills and games for fun and skill-building. My students improve their mastery, confidence, and grades.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have 5 years of experience teaching high school math including Algebra 2, and have tutored dozens of Algebra 2 students one-on-one. A frequent downfall of students in Algebra 2 is weakness on fundamentals from earlier grades, such as in equation solving, graphing, working with negative numbers, fractions, and exponents. I look at these skills early in our sessions together, and incorporate strengthening exercises as needed. Then we can more successfully access Algebra 2 topics without continually tripping when solving problems in such topics as Quadratic and Polynomial Functions and Inequalities, Trigonometry, Conic Sections, Rational Expressions and Equations, Exponential and Logarithmic relations. I have a good track record of raising students' skills and grades.
Calculus,

Calculus

I am an experienced high school math teacher, and engineer, and have been tutoring math and Calculus for 7 years. I have helped more than a dozen students in Calculus so far, of varying levels from introductory, AP Calculus, to College Freshman Calculus. "Excellent Tutor! Steve is an amazing find! I have been looking for a knowledgeable tutor to help my son with his honors calculus and honors physics. Steve was extremely knowledgeable! He was a great aid in helping my son work through the material he has been studying. "
Geometry,

Geometry

I have 5 years of experience teaching high school Geometry, and have tutored dozens of Geometry students one-on-one. Students are 1st introduced to the use of logic in high school geometry, and this is a new skill to develop, and essential to complete proofs. This is the biggest help I give Geometry students - I have them approach a problem both from the conclusion, working backward ("for this to be true, what do I need? How can I get that?") and forward ("Given this, what does it do for me? And what else can I get from it? How does it link to what I need?"). I have THEM talk out the problem using this logic, with a little coaching, until they have solved it, and then they can write proofs with ease. I also enhance learning and test performance by understanding just where students are often weak, and making sure they have solid skills in the many Geometry topics such as Parallel Lines & Angles, Transformations, Right Triangles and Trigonometry, Circles, Sectors, Tangents, etc.
Physics,

Physics

I have a deep understanding of physics from my education and work as an engineer, and have tutored more than 2 dozen students in Physics, so far. Students seem to have the most trouble in a few areas: -In mechanics, after studying motion in 1 and 2 dimensions, force, and friction, then analyzing complex motion problems such as objects on an incline, using pulleys, or with multiple forces. -Electrical circuits with multiple branches. -Understanding & working with myriad new units of measure (Newtons, Joules, Coulombs, Watts, Volts, Amps, etc). I help students with a more organized and thoughtful approach to problem solving, and to develop a deeper understanding and insight into the big ideas in Physics (and have raised grades as a result).
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have 5 years of experience as a High School Math teacher, depth in math topics in Calculus and beyond from my education and work as an engineer, and have tutored 2 dozen or more Precalculus students one-on-one. Precalculus is both preparation for a following calculus course, AND often a last course in discrete math, so it covers a wide range of topics, some of which are not specifically useful to calculus (such as probability and combinatorics). It relies on solid skills from previous courses in Algebra 1 and 2. I find that students are often challenged in precalculus by the depth of thought, longer procedures, new material not seen in earlier courses, and by their need to use skills from earlier courses such as in function analysis and graphing, equation solving, exponents and logarithms. I work with them to gain understanding of the new material, and to successfully apply a wide range of necessary skills, increasing their mastery, confidence, and grades.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I have been successfully helping student prepare for, and improved their performance, on the SAT math sections for 7 years. I am fully prepared and practiced in the 'new' SAT from 2016 onward. Your student will be working one-on-one with me on SAT problems of exactly the type(s) they most need to practice. We will establish goals and a rough timeline before we start. We will work together out of several published SAT prep & practice books that I recommend. Your student can do extra prep in between sessions if they have the time and motivation, or work just during our sessions. While a big-name SAT prep company may have a class with nice 'packaging', they won't work effectively with your student's individual strengths and weaknesses like I will. Your student won't sit and sleep through a class lecture, they will be working one-on-one with me on SAT problems of exactly the type(s) they most need to practice. "Steve is a great tutor and we were lucky to find him. He is very patient and experienced. He found out my daughter's problem after the first class. He helped my daughter become more mindful when doing math work. He also helped her going through SAT prep sessions, which greatly helped her improve her SAT score from 700 to 760." - Ying, 12 lessons with Steve

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

Trigonometry starts out nice and easy in the early high school years, with introductions to similar triangles, ratios, and the classic "SOHCAHTOA definitions of the Trigonometric Functions. Then ramps up into the isosceles right an 30°-60°-90° Triangles. Likely no problems here, but then a good teacher or tutor can be needed! As Trig gets more serious, probably in a Precalculus class, students are Solving Right Triangles, learning and applying Laws of Cosines Sines, making sense of the Unit Circle, radian measure, Coterminal angles, Polar coordinates, Graphs of the trigonometric functions, Inverse functions. Students finally get frustrated when simplifying and solving weird expressions and equations with Trig identities, some of which seem impossible. I help students make sense of it all, help with homework by giving individual and real time tips, give extra practice where needed, help them understand WHY it might be useful. Over time, frustration goes down while grades go up!

Algebra 2

Steve has really helped my son grasp the concepts. He has helped him immensely and has explained the work in such a way that it finally makes sense to my son. He has brought his grade level up. I am so happy that we have found Steve to work with my son!!!

Lisa, 47 lessons with Steve

Great tutor for teens

Steve is tutoring my son in Geometry. He is patient, a good communicator and is genuinely interested in meeting my son where he is to help him. My son said that Steve has inspired him to care about his performance. I think this is due to increased confidence.

Shelly, 24 lessons with Steve

Enriching and thought-provoking

We covered some circles and secants and tangents in preparation for the midterm. We even covered an exercise with angle measurements in circles. Steve was very patient and helpful while giving thought-provoking challenges. All in all, it was very informative and productive session.

GREAT Teacher

Steve continues to be a great help to my High Schooler with Geometry! My son really enjoys working with him and Steve is quickly able to determine the best way to help him.

Getting to the root

Steve's has been very patient with our teenage daughter. Having someone from the outside has shed new insights to her struggles with geometry. Mom and dad are hoping to make class changes during the semester break that may benefit her self esteem.

Thanks Steve

You connect very well with my daughter. She always says you are very helpful. Thanks for your continued help, I appreciate your patience and knowledge on the subject.

great teacher

This was by far the best experience we’ve had with a tutor! What a delight-) my son and I both loved it! He felt very comfortable asking the tutor what he wanted and it was great!

Mohit, 5 lessons with Steve

Great teacher!

My HS soon is taking college trig, which he found challenging. Steven has been working with Danny for the past two weeks and it’s been very productive. Unfortunately Danny’s college teacher is very behind with grading so we don’t have an objective measure of improvement but Danny seems to be learning and comprehending material better.

Great Help

Steve is really helping my son with Trigonometry equations. His quiz grades are coming up. I like that he is pushing my son to be able to work independently. Looking forward to continuing the sessions.
