Success in math and English; Math/Logic Master's; 99th-percentile

Peter G.
I am driven by the challenge of helping every student to succeed. Most recently I have done this at the secondary level as a public charter school teacher. Prior to that, alongside my own doctoral work in mathematics, I taught and assistant-taught college-level math classes, from remedial Calculus to Multivariate Calculus.

Helping students discover math themselves is the subject of the PROMYS program (Program in Math for Young Scientists) in number theory. I spent two summers at the PROMYS...

GRE
#### GRE

I do well on standardized tests and scored perfect on the Verbal and Quantitative sections of the GRE in 2013. I also enjoy helping others to master different types of questions. I have several years part-time experience holding office hours and working in a tutorial office.

Grammar,

I enjoy helping others understand the logic and rules that govern our writing, interpretation, and speech. I have almost six months' experience tutoring in English half-time, including grammar.

Statistics
#### Statistics

I have tutored statistics with great success after studying it as a graduate student in math and assistant teaching probability, a related subject. I have tutored students in graduate school themselves, in addition to college students and high school students taking AP statistics. I enjoy explaining how we analyze and measure data using distributions, standard deviation, alpha- and beta-testing, etc. I try to meet students where they are, having found that the concepts and methods of statistics and probability are only learned effectively over time.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

Advanced algebra was one of my favorite subjects in graduate school, where I earned an "A" in at least three or four such courses. The same concepts are in elementary algebra, and I have a good amount of experience tutoring at this level. I like to find the right balance between identifying patterns through the repetition of a given category of problem, and asking more conceptual questions.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

As a doctoral student I assistant-taught several semesters of Calculus, and taught summer courses myself on a few occasions. For both, I held well-attended office hours in which I did small-group and one-on-one tutoring. Calculus is about a beautiful connection between symbolic manipulation and geometric interpretation, and I enjoy helping students of all levels to see that with practice it is not so difficult.
