About Olivier

With more than 8 years of dealing with students from first grade through 6 grade. I have developed the ability to explain difficult concepts in a simple and comprehensible manner -college students praise me a lot for this. I am skilled at identifying the strengths and weaknesses of my students (within the first 3 sessions). I learn to understand my students and I use the knowledge I get (strengths, weaknesses, personality type...) to provide them a learning method that fits their individual need. I make always sure my students learn in a happy environment and I know how to create this kind of environment. I look forward to working with you.

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.

Geometry

''Geometry is the study of shapes and configurations. It attempts to understand and classify spaces in various mathematical contexts''. Due to this particularity, the approach to understanding Geometry slightly different from the one to learning Algebra, which most students are familiar with, and this may be a challenge to some. A proper guidance will help the student having difficulties in the course get back on track. My goal as a Geometry tutor is to give my student clear techniques to help her/him discover the simplicity of solving geometric problems.

Praxis

I have a degree in secondary Mathematics Education. For my State Certification as a high school math teacher, I took Praxis-1 Mathematics, Praxis-1 Reading, Praxis-1 Writing, Praxis PLT and Praxis 2 Mathematics. I passed all of these tests with excellent scores.

Prealgebra

I have a BS in Mathematics and a BS in Education from University of Maryland College Park. I also have an AS in Electrical Engineering From Northern Virginia Community College. I was an Elementary School classroom teacher for 8 years; this is actually one of my strength because this experience allowed to develop the ability to break down complex concepts in a way that make them accessible to students I tutor no matter their current level of understanding. I have the confidence that I can help you or your child succeed. Send me a message.
