Passion and patience are what drive me to help students achieve their goals. I work as a teacher at a prestigious private high school in New York City and enjoy helping students reach the pinnacle of their ability in math and physics. I have a B.S. in physics from the California Institute of Technology and a M.A. in mathematics education from Bard College. I am also a certified teacher in 7-12 Mathematics and I have over 7 years experience tutoring and teaching. I specialize in helping high school students students gain the important critical thinking skills they would need to succeed in Ivy League schools and other highly competitive universities. I have considerable experience preparing students in all the major standardized test (SAT, SAT 2, ACT, and AP).

Having taught Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus, I understand the conceptual pitfalls and misconceptions that can arise in these courses. My approach is to help students strategize a solution so that they understand problems from basic principles, not rote memorization. I teach students how to classify problems and what tools and techniques are best for solving problems in those categories. I love having the opportunity to impart both my knowledge and enthusiasm to students striving to be successful. I look forward to helping you meet your goal!

Brilliant tutor!

Rudy is a brilliant tutor. He expertly explained a difficult calculus topic to my son, who now understands it completely. Besides being super intelligent, he is also extremely nice. I will definitely be contacting him again!

Patient and knowledgeable tutor

Rudy is great! He is patient and very positive. He not only helped my daughter understand concepts but also gave her strategies to use when she is having trouble figuring out how to approach a problem. Recommend him very highly!

Conscientious, insightful and knowledgeable

Rudy is an excellent tutor because in addition to being both extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter and a patient teacher, he is very insightful about how his students learn and what their specific needs are.

Rudy was very well qualified

Rudy went over my daughter's pre calculus assignments. He was well prepared and my daughter thought the tutoring session was very worthwhile. We will be asking him back. Thanks.

Thank you, I appreciate your review!

Great Tutoring Session

My son understood Rudy's explanations; basics were reviewed and taught, enabling him to tackle winter break assignments under Rudy's guidance. My son gained greater confidence. As tutors go it was a very good fit and positive experience; so much so that we scheduled an appointment for the next day.
