About Judy

Dear students and parents;

I am a certified math teacher majoring in math and statistics at Stony Brook University. I am very confident in teaching math; I have a strong background in math that can benefit students learning. Deep understanding and knowledge of the concepts of topics and many different types of problem solving skills are my powerful tool in teaching students math. Understanding of concepts is very important in math since it would guide and help students to approach the problems and solve them in an appropriate way. Nevertheless, through tutoring many students, I have noticed many of them lacked understanding the concepts. For this reason, they have struggled with solving problems, even simple questions.

My teaching technique was very effective to resolve the problems many students had. Helping them understand the concepts clearly and teaching problem solving skills in a various way to fit their individual need(level, ability and learning style)was successful for students to accelerate their math skills.

Math is my passion and the strongest subject and really enjoy working with students. It would be great pleasure if I can help you or help your children. You will be seeing how math can change your life.

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

Algebra 1 covers expressions, systems of equations, functions, real numbers, inequalities, exponents, polynomials, radical, and rational expressions. Many students find Algebra 1 challenging because it requires a new way of thinking and many different types of problems solving skills.
Algebra I is an important topic in math since it is a gateway to higher education and gives you the skills to solve more complex problems.

Algebra 2

In Algebra 2, students will learn about numbers, polynomials, inequalities, sequences and sums, many types of functions and how to solve them. They will gain a deeper insight into math and practice using new skills with many questions. During the sessions, I always encourage my students to use pen and paper and try their best until they get the solutions.
"Don't guess the answer"

Elementary Math

The math skills that students learn in elementary school build a foundation for future learning, so it is important for student success, but more important is a concept since without conceptual understanding, it is meaningless to solve the problems. Many middle and high school students lack these concepts and skills due to the lack of foundations from their elementary level. I focus on them and it really works well.


GED Math:
For the GED math test, students should know mathematical concepts and apply those concepts to various problem situations. They should have a strong grasp on problem-solving, reasoning and analytical skills. The test also includes graphs, charts, diagrams or tables, so they should be able to understand and apply mathematical concepts in real-world situations.


High school geometry requires more precise definitions and developing careful proofs from their middle school geometry experience. One of the most difficult things for students in geometry is to determine two figures are similar or congruent. It is essential to learn how to approach the problems and use definition, postulates, and theorems appropriately in a logical way and lead them to conclusions.


I have five years of experience tutoring students for the math Regents exam (algebra 1, 2, trigonometry and geometry) for grades 9-12. For the past years, I have taught and had students practice all the problems in eight actual Regents exams. Through practicing the problems repeatedly, they became more confident and gained problem solving skills. My goal is to not only help students achieve good grades on the Regents but also motivate to learn math.

SAT Math

I have experienced teaching SAT math at Huntington Learning Center and through WYZant for 5 years. Most SAT math questions can be solved in more than one method, so I approach to questions in many different ways based on my students problem solving skills and prior knowledge for the problems. For each problem, I assess their weaknesses for the problem and strengthen their weakest area. In addition to, learning mathematical concepts and appropriate approach for the problems is a essential foundation in SAT math.
It worked excellent for most SAT students.


Trignometry involves the relations of the sides and angles of triangles; it is to find a missing side or angle in a triangle. For example, given one side of a triangle and two angles in the triangle, then the other two sides and the remaining angle are determined. It also deals with the special function, sin, cos and tan and the inverse of these functions, cot, sec, and csc.

Excellent tutor!! — My son is in 11th grade now and has been struggling with math since entering high school and dealing with common core math. He had fantastic grades in all his other subjects, but all he would focus on was that he was barely passing math. His very low math average brought down his grade point average to where he was always missing making the honor roll by a point or two. This really affected his co ...
