About Glenn

Thank you for viewing my profile! My name is Glenn and I’d love to work with you to meet your academic goals.

Mathematics is my forte and my passion, but I find nothing more fulfilling than helping others and making a difference in students’ lives. I thrive in the role of mentoring others and in breaking down complex math problems to aid with comprehension.

I received my B.A. in Secondary Education in Mathematics from The College of New Jersey in 2011, and am certified to teach mathematics from grades 7 through 12. I am currently in the midst of applying for an Applied Mathematics Ph.D. program, with the option to minor in (Bio) statistics.

I have also taken many standardized tests, including the SAT, ACT, Praxis, and GRE, and have achieved proficiency in all of them. As a result, I can offer my services to tutor mathematics and writing for preparation of all these standardized tests.

I have a plethora of teaching experiences ranging from middle school all the way to the university level for pre-service teachers. I feel that this breadth of experience has helped me become not only a better teacher, but also a better listener. As a tutor, I am committed to doing anything I can to help my students learn and achieve their goals.

Many students simply want to know the answer or the solution process, but I have found it is best to outline a general strategy to solve a problem, and help the student from there. Regardless of the subject matter, my goal is to help the student not only become proficient in mathematics, but also hone effective study skills for all academic areas. As a result of my efforts, the students I have tutored in the past have increased their grades by as many as three letter grades over a period of four months.

So let’s get started! I look forward to speaking with you and helping you to master your mathematical skills.

I’d be happy to send a resume upon request.

I am very sorry for that. Unfortunately, at the time, two very close family members passed away within a two week time time span. I am usually very responsible and motivated in both my work and studies. If you have any further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me. I am willing to address any concerns that you may have. Thank you.

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.

Calculus

I first took Calculus AB as a senior in high school, and not only obtained one of the highest grades in the class, but also scored highly on the AP exam. I have taken several classes in the Calculus sequence and beyond, such as Ordinary Differential Equations and Complex Analysis at the Master's level, and received an A in both courses.

Being able to convey this material to students is equally important too, and I have tutored students of all grade levels, both in high school and college for this subject.

Great tutor, very patient and prompt — Glenn is an excellent tutor who helps his students by teaching them many ways to solve a problem. This method ensured my daughter had confidence going into the exam. He is very personable and I would recommend him to any parent trying to help their son/daughter to get a better score on ACT or SAT. ...
