About Elias

I was awarded a Bachelor's of Arts, 2011, in mathematics from Bard College. In addition I also attended a prestigious graduate level research program at The University of Georgia and the New York Academy of Sciences Science and Research Training Program. My preliminary college work was at The University of California Santa Cruz and Bard High School Early College Manhattan.

I provide lessons that are concise, clear, and correct.

Students gain an analytic, conceptually rich understanding of all topics on the SAT. This includes the tried and true study oriented academic habits, or smart tricks and techniques such as process of elimination and back substitution.

My unique approach to the SAT involves very little memorization. It is not tedious or monotonous. I scored in the 98th percentile on the SAT. Using my techniques you will do the same.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

Having taken numerous classes in Algebra and Geometry, along with some other great classes such as Trigonometry, I can provide ample tutoring for this test. I have experience tutoring with a NYC company where we worked on the foundations of Algebra. In addition, I have problem solving experience from Mathematical Problem Solving (offered at U. of California Santa Cruz as a full-course) and Problem Solving Seminar (offered at Bard College as a half-course) which will be useful. I also have teaching experience through teaching Math Circles.

Algebra 1

My background in algebra includes breadth and depth. My education and experience covers the standard algebra 1 and 2 sequence, with relevant info taken from college level algebra classes. Graphing, "FOIL" and factoring are all made approachable. I have experience on computer algebra systems and graphing calculators to share.

Algebra 2

I took this class at the high school level where the enjoyment began. The trickier topics such as polynomial long division were then covered at the collegiate level algebra classes. There isn't any reason not to master the material...its very much applied.

Elementary Math

I have tutored elementary math on countless occasions (independent tutoring centers and volunteer work). Being a tutor with a smart, intelligible background, I easily create specific examples that solve young students' dilemmas. This is especially important in elementary math. Foundation concepts include equations, areas, volumes, divisions, sums, ratios, and subtractions. Students achieve success and greatness at myriad levels.

GED

Having studied GED prep texts, I use conventional challenges and examples to carry students towards an understanding of the content material. Students who have already purchased preparatory texts may receive specific customized prep relating to the texts. Familiar concepts such as My Plate are presented neatly. Students gain a full understanding of the material. Depth is added to prep using college level writing, literature, and math classes (Algebra).

Geometry

For my senior year project my adviser (Dr. Ethan Bloch) and I worked on a geometry project. This project brought me to a higher level of understanding of geometry, and also renewed my interest in teaching the subject. During college I tutored geometry to fellow classmates. I tutor using many visual aids.

Prealgebra

During prealgebra we stress foundations with attention to detail. Rigorous examples are given to help the students take on elementary topics. Later, factoring is introduced.

Precalculus

Precalculus involves the introduction of key concepts such as limits and logarithms. My preparation includes a full litany of classes. I have tutored this subject and its super subjects during college level classes. Students generally present the text they are using. We continue from there.

PSAT

PSAT practice is dynamic, useful and of value for Merit scholarships. Having achieved a high SAT and PSAT score, my qualification stems from real world results. Students may wish to locate a practice book for study. Concepts are used in measured and unmeasured elaborations on subject material.

SAT Math

I have extensive experience in this type of math and received a competitive score taking the test. My B.A. in Mathematics necessarily covers the language on the test. In addition, I have problem solving experience from Mathematical Problem Solving (offered at U. of California Santa Cruz as a full-course) and Problem Solving Seminar (offered at Bard College as a half-course) which will be useful. The SAT test is primarily a reasoning test; I have teaching experience in this avenue through Math Circles.

Trigonometry

Here the familiar functions of Sin, Cos, and Tan are analyzed. I provide an experience of trigonometry that is coherent and including many examples. I use texts from high school and college level classes. Students may expect rigor and non-arbitrary examples.
