Hi my name is Collin C. and I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a focus on Education. I have been tutoring math for more than 5 years. I have tutored math in the subjects of Algebra, Geometry, PreCalculus, PSAT, and SAT testing.

Hi my name is Collin C. and I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a focus on Education. I have been tutoring math for more than 5 years. I have tutored math in the subjects of Algebra, Geometry, PreCalculus, PSAT, and SAT testing.
If you pick me as a tutor feel free to send me homework problems or any content we will be going over before our lesson. I can copy and paste the problems onto the online whiteboard. PDF's are great and even a good quality picture from the page of a book taken by a phone works well. This way we don't lose time by writing problems down and have more time to learn the math.

The lesson is going to be done in a way that best matches your specific needs. Maybe you are completely lost on the subject and need me to go over some example problems, I can do that. Maybe you are stuck on some minor parts of a problem. In that case I usually have the student start solving the problem and then find where they get stuck. Then once I know which specific area of the problem the student is confused about I explain that part of the problem, so we can master 100% of the problem. Also ask me as many questions as you want!

Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have tutored algebra II for the past 4 years, mainly outside of Wyzant. I also taught an honors algebra II class as part of an internship for the University. I graduated from Grand Valley State University and hold a bachelors of science in mathematics and education! I will do everything in my power to make you succeed in algebra II. I give students that I tutor the option of sending me notes/homework problems before we meet. This is especially beneficial since it allows me to prepare some notes the students may want during the lesson or even to use after the lesson to help them understand the content. I start the lessons by having you work on the math problems. Seeing you do the problem shows me exactly where you are struggling and then we can focus our attention on helping you master those concepts that need more practice. We are not going to waste time by explaining every detail of every concept if you already know the concepts. This way we can get you to master everything that you don't know and really improve your math skills exponentially.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have a Bachelor's of Science In Mathematics/ Education. I have been tutoring Precalculus for the past 5 years. Whether you need help with logarithms, polar equations, or trigonometric identities or the many other topics of precalculus I am here to help you understand. I will tailor the lesson to your specific needs. If you want a ton of example problems, I can do that, If you are stuck on one part of a problem I can help you understand that part. Also ask me as many questions as you want!
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I have tutored the SAT math section for the past 5 years, mainly outside of Wyzant's platform. I also have a bachelor of science in Mathematics. I teach SAT testing to students of all different levels whether that be honers students or students that are very behind in SAT prep. No matter which category you fall in, in terms of SAT knowledge, I'm going to help you get the SAT score you desire. If you choose me as a tutor I will provide you with a ten page SAT formula sheet. On that sheet are also tricks that can help you solve certain SAT problems much faster by using a graphing calculator. I usually have students take a practice SAT test before we start. This allows both me and the student to find where weaknesses and strengths are in mathematical ability. If you have already taken SAT practice tests and know exactly which areas of the SAT you struggle in we can work on those specific questions. I have a large question bank that we can use to master understanding of specific content areas. There are 4 areas of math in the SAT. The areas include “The heart of algebra”, “problem solving and data analysis” , “Passport to advanced math”, and “Additional topics in math”. In order to increase SAT scores most significantly I usually have students do “additional topics in math” questions last since those questions contain only 10% of SAT questions, while other content areas contain around 30%. Here are the types of questions that come up for different areas of the SAT. -HEART OF ALGEBRA (33%) of questions Includes questions related to linear functions/ linear graphs/systems of linear equations/ linear word problems. -PROBLEM SOLVING AND DATA ANALYSIS (29%) of questions Includes ratios, rates, and proportions, percents, units, table data, scatterplots, linear/exponential growth, center, spread, and shapes of distributions, data collection. -PASSPORT TO ADVANCED MATH (28%) of questions -includes quadratics, radicals and rational exponents, linear/quadratic systems, operations with polynomials, manipulating

Very knowledgeable and dedicated

Collins taught SAT math lessons. He is very committed to success. Very understanding, patient and supportive. Gives good advice to help students excel and succeed

Jones, 9 lessons with Collin

Excellent tutor

I got in touch with Collin just a couple of weeks before my daughter had to take the SAT. He was very flexible and helpful. He put together difficult questions and guided her through them. Now she feels a lot more confident to take the test.

Chrissy, 6 lessons with Collin

Awesome tutor

Collin is great. I highly recommend him. He is patient and informative. My son is really getting the hang of his math and is feeling confident. He is being better and better with every lesson.

Joanna, 8 lessons with Collin

Patient and thorough

Patient and thorough on last minute tutoring session preparing my daughter for some last minute SAT tips focused on the Math portion. All good , will use him again

Dawn, 2 lessons with Collin

Patient and encouraging

This was my first session with Collin. He is optimistic and patient. He is also very organized and willing to help. I appreciate his efforts and time he puts in with organizing SAT MATH PREP.

Reaiz Nigel, 6 lessons with Collin

Patient and thorough

He made sure my son fully understood the concepts before the lesson ended. My son feels a lot more confident now about his upcoming test. We are planning to work with Collin weekly.

Melissa, 21 lessons with Collin

Very knowledgable and engaged.

He is a very good tutor, taught me about key SAT problems I should practice, and was very patient when he had to re - explain probelms. Definetely reccomend to anyone looking for a knowledgable tutor.

ANNA, 6 lessons with Collin

Knowledgeable. Provides opportunity to practice

Collin is helping my child grasp key concepts in Algebra 2. He provides opportunities for practice / whiteboard during the class/session and this is helpful in retaining the concepts.

Adie, 20 lessons with Collin

Collin was great!

My daughter was scheduled to take the SAT for the 2nd time and asked me to get her a tutor for some Math issues she was having. It was only 2.5 weeks out!! Collin was willing to consolidate his usual lesson and focus on the areas she needed. My daughter felt much more confident taking the test this weekend due to his tips and focused lessons. Thank you , Collin!!! Happy Holidays!!!

Mary, 5 lessons with Collin

Excellent Teacher Helped me a lot

Really helped me understand concepts I had forgotten. He was really good at explaining things. I would recommend him to others.
