“**Really understanding and patient.**”

Greetings:

I am currently tutoring mathematics for grades 7 through college, having scored 796 on the SAT. I have a B.A. in English from NYU and I teach English grammar and literature as well as essay writing, which is very important for the SAT and ACT. On weekends I teach an SAT prep course, which is currently on hiatus.

Gaston helped our daughter understand geometry! He provided the foundation for her to move forward. He did a great job and was always available!

Gaston was very patient, always on time and had a good connection with my daughter. Her results from the first test were ok and I know she'll do better the next time. Without Gaston's help, her scores would have been lower.

Gaston is very good about explaining each component and step to any math problem that is put in front of him. He has helped my son conquer questions in algebra, geometry and arithmetic. My son has more confidence in taking the SHSAT, SSAT and ISEE. After all exams are taken, I hope you he can stay on board to help him have a smooth transition to high school math.

Gaston is professional confident and seems very concern, he is also well equipped always punctual, well groomed and very, very patient.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Linear Algebra is a simple proportion on a two dimensional level. The student must be able to look at any line on a graph and be able to recognize slopes and displacement immediately. I have taught this approach in classes at Baruch College and the students easily grasp the concepts once the simplicity of the material is explained. However, strong basic math skills are essential to succeed in this easy subject.

I have taught the following Regents exams (geometry, trigonometry and algebra 1 and 2) based upon both the Baron's test books and the subject tests released by the Regents board itself. While the questions are challenging in those areas, they are really not any more difficult than any good test on the subject. If you know the material cold, and that includes the geometry theorems and various formulas, the trigonometry concepts and identities, and the quadratic equation, then you should not have a problem with taking the Regents test.

I have been sewing for 42 years. I own an industrial machine, two sergers and more than 500 yards of fabric in my workroom. I have been hired to sew clothes, dresses, curtains and I have upholstered 30 banquettes/couches of one entire nightclub including 20 foot high velvet drapes.

Trigonometry is a stunningly simple set of concepts developed into an intense set of constructs. A basic foundation of the linear grid and the Pythagorean theorem is necessary to be able to build up to the sophisticated formulas that must be memorized. A good strong memory is essential and a thorough knowledge of the graphing calculator is indispensable.
