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.

Algebra 1

I am a college instructor. I really enjoy math, especially algebra, and am interested in helping others understand math better.

Algebra 2

I am a college instructor, teaching math and science. I really enjoy Algebra and would like to help you or your child understand it better.

Astronomy

I teach college level Astronomy and have also taught and worked in a museum/planetarium setting and with people of all ages. I own a portable Starlab planetarium that I like to take to schools and other groups to do star shows. I have loved Astronomy and the sky since I was in elementary school and love sharing this passion with other people. I would love to work one-on-one with you or your child to help you understand our universe better.

Regents

I have helped several students prepare to take or retake math Regents' exams; including Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II/Trig, and the common core exams. I begin by assessing the student's areas of strength and weakness by using previous Regents' exams. I then focus on helping them strengthen their weak areas by bringing practice work for them to do. Just before they take or retake the exam, we go over and review a previous exam to give them a bit more practice.

Trigonometry

I am a college instructor teaching math and science. I have also been an instructor at Mathnasium for the past two years. I have worked with many high school students studying trigonometry and have helped them understand it better and prepare for the Regents exam. Trigonometry is one of my favorite areas of math. I would like to help you or your child understand it better.

Jody took a last minute call from my son for some extra help on a weekday evening to prepare for an upcoming exam. She worked with him for an hour-and-a-half, leaving with my son feeling much more confident for the upcoming test.
