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.

ACT Math

The ACT Math test is a test I have become very familiar with over the past few years. I use an official ACT Test Preparation book to prepare my students for the 60-minute 60-Question test. Given the proper amount of time, I go over all of the subject matter for the test to fully prepare the student for the best mark possible.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring Algebra 1 students for several years now. I find ways to make Algebra easy for students to learn by keeping the student engaged in their own work while guiding them along the way. I have taught at both private and public schools. My experience in this subject ranges from teaching remedial Algebra 1 to tutoring college students taking intermediate Algebra. I have a degree in Mathematics and Secondary Education which has prepared me to teach Algebra students at all levels.

Algebra 2

My qualifications for teaching Algebra 2 are no different than my qualifications for Algebra 1. I have ample experience tutoring students of all ages from kids to adults. I have had many one-on-one tutoring sessions. I take a lot of care to teach this subject to the best of my ability. I always focus on the student and his/her needs.

Calculus

I am new to tutoring Calculus. Although it is not my strongest subject I feel confident that by working together with the student we can achieve his/her goals. With my strong background in PreCalculus, Intermediate Algebra, and Trigonometry I am well versed in the language of Calculus and continue to strengthen my skills in this subject area with every lesson and book that comes my way.

Prealgebra

After teaching subjects such as Algebra, Precalculus, Trigonometry, and other higher level math courses, Prealgebra is no stranger to me! I find ways to simplify Prealgebra concepts so that the student has a strong base for upper level courses he/she may take in the future. I am very good at making word problems and critical thinking questions simple for the student to understand. I am aware that many students struggle with those types of problems so I take great care to make these questions as easy to comprehend as possible, and pass on these skills to the student.

Precalculus

Precalculus is one of my strongest subjects, and one that I enjoy teaching to students of all ages. Most of my experience in Precalculus has come directly from my student internship at one of the top math and science schools in the nation. I was able to benefit from this program by teaching alongside of some of the best teachers in their fields.

SAT Math

I have been tutoring SAT math for a few years now and I am familiar with the new test that came out in March 2016. If you need help with the math portion on your SAT I would be happy to help! I am also familiar with the old SAT setup so if you have old materials that you want to brush up on I can help with that as well. Let's get you the best score you're capable of!

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is a subject that I have been teaching to students for several years now. Many times this subject is part of a PreCalculus or Advanced Algebra course which I am no stranger to! It's one of my favorite subjects and I am happy to help you accomplish your goals in this subject area. Let's go for the best grade possible!
