About Fanit


Bio

I believe that every student is capable of learning. My goal is to allow them to reach their maximum potential by getting them interested in the subject, making them think, and teaching them in the style most comfortable for them. I enjoy helping students master the material and improve their grades. As a result, I was named a Top 5% tutor on Wyzant, out of a total of 17,575 active tutors.

I enjoy helping students master the material and improve their grades. As a result, I was named a Top 5% tutor on Wyzant, out of a total of 17,575 active tutors.

I have been educated in the top schools, have achieved great results, and I am committed to helping others do the same! I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, where I achieved a GPA of 4.0 and received an award for being the best in my class.

I am certified to teach mathematics and computer science K-12. As a certified teacher, I know the curriculum for all levels of mathematics and computer science very well, and I have lots of practice materials for both subjects. Specifically, AP Computer Science uses a Java subset, and not the whole language. Therefore, it is important to realize what students should and should not know and what tools are available to them in solving problems, so that the tutor does not overload the student with unnecessary information. I am often hired as the second or third tutor in AP Computer Science because of that, and I am happy to guide students in the subject and prepare them for the AP exam.

Some people are visual learners, so for those a picture may be worth a thousand words, some are auditory, for whom the explanation is most important, and some learn by doing. I apply my vast experience to teaching an individual person and adapting to that person's learning style. I have been tutoring students for over 25 years, from elementary age to adults, and I have always been able to help them become comfortable, confident, and knowledgeable in the subjects that I teach.

Along with the disciplines that I am teaching, I also teach study skills, time management and organization, because I believe that if you have a disorganized mixture of study

GRE

GRE

The GRE test includes math up to algebra and geometry, both of which I have been tutoring for a long time. I can help with the material covered on the tests as well as test taking strategies which will result in a top score. I have successfully tutored many students who went on to be admitted to great colleges because they scored high on the entrance exams.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I am certified to teach math K-12. I have successfully tutored many elementary students in math. I emphasize understanding and word problems, not just memorization, and I provide supplementary materials for students interested in progressing to higher levels of math. I have developed a curriculum which I currently teach that bridges the gap between elementary and middle school math. Using this curriculum, most of my students were able to get into the highest level of math offered in school in 6th grade.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I am certified to teach mathematics K-12. Many students have difficulty when first encountering abstract math, so Algebra is my most requested subject. I have successfully tutored many students, who improved their grades in Algebra I dramatically. I also developed a curriculum that I am teaching to 5th and 6th graders starting them on Algebra at an early age, so that they are familiar with the concepts when they go on to take Algebra formally.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I am certified to teach mathematics K-12. Students often take Algebra I, then Geometry, then Algebra II, so they forget a lot of concepts from Algebra I in the meantime. My goal is to build a strong foundation of Algebra I and then proceed to Algebra II, which is the lion's share of all standardized math tests. I have successfully tutored many students, who improved their grades in Algebra II dramatically and, as an added bonus, scored higher on standardized tests.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus was the first subject that I ever tutored. This high level subject requires thorough understanding and careful implementation. I can provide explanations and practice problems for the student to gain understanding of calculus.
Geometry,

Geometry

I am certified to teach math K-12. Geometry is unlike any other math subject that students will encounter in their lives. Also, this is the subject where students first encounter formal proofs. I work with students to learn logic needed for proofs, and to create proofs on their own. I also emphasize the importance of drawing and marking correctly on the pictures so that it is easier to solve problems.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I am certified to teach math K-12. I have successfully tutored many students in prealgebra. I help students master prealgebra so that they can build a strong foundation and move on to algebra later on. I emphasize understanding and word problems, and provide many materials to practice. I have developed a curriculum which I currently teach that bridges the gap between elementary and middle school math. Using this curriculum, most of my students were able to get into the highest level of math offered in school in 6th grade.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I am certified to teach math K-12. Precalculus builds upon Algebra 2 knowledge and extends it in order to prepare for Calculus. In this subject, it is imperative that the student starts thinking at a higher level and applies the concepts learned in Algebra 2 in order to succeed. Precalculus also typically includes Trigonometry, which is based on Geometry knowledge. My goal is to connect all of these subjects and present a picture that is thorough and easy to understand. As always, I have lots of practice materials to support the learning.
SAT Math

SAT Math

I have successfully tutored many students who dramatically increased their SAT Math scores and went on to be admitted to top colleges. I can help with the material covered on the test as well as test taking strategies which will result in a top score. It is essential for students to prepare for the new SAT and train for it specifically, so I use the newest material in preparation for the test.

Trigonometry

I am certified to teach math K-12. In trigonometry, the goal is to draw on what the student knows from algebra and geometry. It is important to bridge all gaps in the knowledge and introduce higher level concepts after that. Since trigonometry is also essential for standardized tests, students also simultaneously prepare for college entrance exams.

The Best Math Tutor in New Jersey

I am writing this review to acknowledge the work Fanit has accomplished with my 6th grade daughter. To put into context, my three children have had over 200 hours of WYZANT tutoring combined. I feel the money was well spent given WYZANT helped produced excellent students who went on to Georgetown & Fairfield. Although we have been blessed with some great tutors on WYZANT's platform, the best by far is Fanit. For starters, Fanit has a brilliant mathematical mind but the beauty of Faint’s skill is her ability to teach. Math has been a major struggle for my 6th grader... She lacked the foundation, visualization and confidence to excel… Enter Fanit, who has tutored my daughter for over 50 hours, she is now at the top of her class. A miraculous feat. Fanit has the unique skill to teach. She brings an old school strict lesson plan that continuously builds over time. I highly recommend her for all areas of mathematics as well as standardized test preparation. As a parent who wants the best for his kids, Fanit is slightly more expensive but she is worth every cent. In summary, Fanit is the best tutor our family has ever had which says a lot given our long-standing relationship with WYZANT.

Fanit K. is a great tutor!

Fanit K. is a great tutor. My grandson had troubles in with Computer Science AP class, and after working with Fanit got 5 on his AP exam. Fanit is patient, approachable, kind, responsible, and very knowledgeable. She is always available for extra lessons and is willing to help with any homework and difficult assignments. She explains the material clearly and effectively and has a lot of supplemental materials. She answers emails and questions on time. Overall great tutor, I highly recommend her to anyone taking AP Computer Science A! Outstanding tutor!

Anna, 34 lessons with Fanit

Excellent command of material, engages different learning styles very well

Fanit has deep mastery of the material my twins are learning in Algebra II Accelerated. They have very different learning styles and she works equally well with both of them and helps each master and build confidence with the computations. She has a calm but spirited demeanor. Terrific.

Great Tutor

Just wanted to add an update: Our son got placed in accelerated math program for middle school and Fanit was instrumental in guiding him. Great tutor, very punctual, knowledgeable- we were happy with her. My son was able to learn concepts of pre algebra and become better with her help. We are happy to recommend her and might reach out to her for future math tutoring needs.
