I've been a tutor for 10 years, and have assisted a wide range of students. Subjects in math that I've tutored in range from Prealgebra to advanced Calculus.

Hello! I'm an Electrical Engineer with a background in Software Development and previous experience in Biomedical Engineering. I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

I've been a tutor for 10 years, and have assisted a wide range of students. Subjects in math that I've tutored in range from Prealgebra to advanced Calculus. Also, I have worked extensively in prep for math on many Standardized Tests (SAT, PSAT, SSAT, Regents, ASVAB, etc.). Whether a student is trying to get a top mark, or is just looking to pass the course, I have experience getting satisfying results. I'm enthusiastic about the subjects I teach and I have a flexible schedule.

My Teaching Style:

I've found that the best way to teach math efficiently is to step into my student's shoes and see the problem as they do. By asking the student to work me through the problem, I can see exactly where confusion arises, as well as how to improve the student's analysis of the problem. This allows me to know exactly how to teach my students how to solve effectively and with confidence.

For the topics that the student has not learned yet, I first walk through the steps needed to solve it, and make sure they understand the reasoning behind each step. Once the student has sufficiently grasped how to handle the problems they needed help with, I have practice problems that the student can do for the next session. Also, if there are a shortcuts to getting the solution, I will show it to the student so that they can quickly work through exams.

For students looking to prepare for the Standardized Tests, I have strategies and tricks that some companies charge a good deal to teach 1-on-1. Whether you're a slow writer, have difficulty with the reading comprehension portion, or don't know how to tackle the more difficult math problems, I'll help you learn and strategize according to your own style to optimize your score.

Outside of the Sessions:

I'm very accessible outside of tutoring sessions. My students should feel free to contact me anytime by

Trigonometry

My profession requires an advanced application of this subject, including properties and trigonometry identities that are rarely seen below the calculus level. I have a thorough understanding of the subject and still use it often. I have often helped my peers in college with material from this subject when it would reappear in a complex identity in calculus, such as during u substitution or the chain rule.
