City University of New York, Brooklyn College (math education)
As a child I suffered through mathematics and hated this subject until my cousin tutored me when I was in 2nd grade. Gradually as time progressed I became better in Math and enjoyed this subject more and more. At age 12, my life goal was to help as many people as possible to enjoy the subject. I excelled in Mathematics in High School, received a amazing scores in exams and scored extremely well on the SAT.
I tutored my peers throughout High School. I enrolled in Brooklyn College and majored in Math. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life because in the program I've met many educators who have the same passion and shared similar ideas. In Junior year of College I accepted an internship overseas in Beijing, China. I taught 7th grade mathematics and also tutored students who were going taking their SAT in China. I had a lot of fun that year with my students while teaching and educating them. At the same time I felt they taught me a lot as well.
I came back to Brooklyn College, finished my last year and received a degree in Mathematics. As I grew older and with more experience, I've learned everyone have their own way to learn and help you understand the subject in your own way. I believe in the process of teaching someone else I am learning as well.
Currently I am teaching full time 10th and 11th grade Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and Trigonometry. I'm usually free on Saturday and Monday-Friday after 4pm. Please don't hesitate to contact me!

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.
