I have always been a well organized student and really like helping people learn. I have a keen interest in academics. I have received a Bachelors degree in Economics and am currently studying in the Chartered Financial Analyst program. I will always be willing to go over the subject in detail until the student has mastery of the subject. I focus on building proper study techniques and I am ready to motivate students to want to learn. Positivity, motivation, and dedication along with the right study techniques to help improve memory and retention will equal success.

GRE

GRE Math includes: age and weight problems; consecutive integer problems; profit, cost, and loss problems; fraction word problems; and problems involving money, digits, and length. simplifying exponents and exponent expressions, solving algebra and exponents, solving addition and subtraction with exponents, simplifying radicals, and algebra with radicals. quadratic equations, applied algebra, and advanced equation setup and solving inequalities and absolutes (other topics are included within inequalities and quantitative comparison questions). Students begin by learning the properties of lines and angles, which include parallel lines, perpendicular lines, lines cut by a transversal, and the sum of angles. Then, these skills are applied to the study of triangles: isosceles triangles, equilateral triangles, and the special right triangles, including the 3-4-5 right triangle, 5-12-13 right triangle, 8-15-17 right triangle: the Pythagorean theorem, triangle inequality theorem, exterior angle theorem, similar triangles, area of a triangle, perimeter of a triangle, and simplifying angles within a triangle. It also includes: three dimensional shapes: the cylinder, cube, and rectangular solid. We cover the formulas for surface area, volume, and diagonal for the cube and rectangular solid and the formulas for surface area and for volume of a cylinder. Finally students are taught how to attack these types of shapes when used in a quantitative comparison format. coordinate plane, points, lines, graphing lines, slope of a line, the point-slope formula, the slope-intercept equation, properties of vertical and horizontal lines, properties of parallel and perpendicular lines, geometrical shapes on the coordinate plane, the distance formula, the midpoint formula, and graphing inequalities are taught in this lesson. In addition, students will begin to build their knowledge of functions. circles, triangles, squares, hexagons, squares inscribed in triangles, triangles inscribed in squares, as well as other shaded region questions. the ratio multiplier, multipart ratios, adding and subtracting to achieve a desired ratio, and applying ratio skills to a range of other problem types such as rates, work, and geometry. averages (arithmetic mean), weighted averages, median, mean, mode, range, and standard deviation. Students also learn how to solve mixture problems, which are similar to weighted average problems. graphing questions are presented, i.e., Bar graphs, line graphs, scatter graphs, and pie charts. Skills learned in previous sections, such as statistics, percents, ratios, and fraction questions rate-time-distance problems require some change of units. Then students learn to solve average rate questions, converging and diverting rates questions, catch up rates questions, round trip rate questions, relative rate questions, relative motion rate questions, hypothetical rate questions Overlapping Sets-- including sets with fractions, decimals, and percents and algebra within sets. Students are also taught to solve three-circle Venn diagrams. geometric sequences and arithmetic sequences combinations and permutations that are tested on the GRE, including basic combinations, combinations with restrictions, basic permutations, permutations with restrictions, mutually exclusive events, and the fundamental counting principle.

I have spent numerous hours tutoring elementary school children in math, science, reading and history. I will be able to provide letters of recommendation from parents that have been pleased with the improved results of their children. The basis of my instruction is founded on mastery of the basics as well as developing an interest in learning. For those students for whom it takes longer to understand concepts and applications, it's a matter of rereading material and practicing to improve memory, using proven memory building techniques such as mnemonic devices.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math focuses on 5 main areas: Number Sense and Operations - Knowing how to represent numbers, recognizing 'how many' are in a group, and using numbers to compare and represent place value on the meaning of operations, and how they relate to one another. Algebra - The ability to sort and order objects or numbers and recognizing and building on simple patterns are examples of ways children begin to experience algebra. This elementary math concept sets the groundwork for working with algebraic variables as a child's math experience grows. Geometry and Spatial Sense - Children build on their knowledge of basic shapes to identify more complex 2-D and 3-D shapes by drawing and sorting. They then learn to reason spatially, read maps, visualize objects in space, and use geometric modeling to solve problems. Eventually children will be able to use coordinate geometry to specify locations, give directions and describe spatial relationships. Measurement - Learning how to measure and compare involves concepts of length, weight, temperature, capacity and money. Telling the time and using money links to an understanding of the number system and represents an important life skill. Data Analysis and Probability - As children collect information about the world around them, they will find it useful to display and represent their knowledge. Using charts, tables, graphs will help them learn to share and organize data.

OMG! my daughter passed her economics class!!!

I thought I wrote a review on Victor before. I know I thought great thing about him. Well, then I will write one: What a great guy, totally down to earth, positive, patience, all around nice guy, blend right into our family and more importantly, my daughter pass her economics class with a B! something she didn't believe was going to happen as she struggled with this class before. We are totally grateful to Victor and very pleased with his tutoring. Thanks again Vic.
