About MANNY

***** Most Recommended Wyzant Tutor (150+) in USA (Among 75,000+ tutors). Only the recently taught students who have paid through Wyzant system are allowed to write testimonials in Wyzant's highly reputed website. Please click my Wyzant profile and click "Student Feedback". *****

* Please give me a student who very few teachers could reach. If any tutor is reading my profile, please send me your most difficult student, someone who is taking a very difficult course or someone who feels hopeless.

*Please give me a student who is trying to get in the 99th percentile in GRE/GMAT/SAT/ACT who can't find a book or teacher who could challenge him/her. I always individualize my process for every student.

* I am eternally grateful to a few of my teachers. I want my students to love me like I love those teachers.

*Please give me an ADHD daydreaming kid and I'll try to turn him into a hyper-focused kid, at least when he is with me. I think my "ADHD" students love me more than my "non-ADHD" students because so few teachers have tried to reach them and catered to their strengths.

* As a lifetime mental math practitioner, I can do almost all SAT/ACT/GMAT/GRE math in my head without paper or calculator. I can teach you many techniques not taught in schools or conventional test prep courses.

* 5,000+ hours of tutoring just through Wyzant - which is a small fraction of my total tutoring experience. I love it so much that I will never retire.

* Recognized by Wyzant as one of its top tutors in the country. Many Wyzant tutors send me their own children for high level courses.

* A big fan of mental math, I scored 99th percentile in GMAT, GRE and SAT math sections. A large % of the SAT/ACT/GMAT/GRE math problems can be done in your head if you know the techniques. However, neither the prep books nor the school text books teach math that way. Encouraged by some students, I have started writing my own math problem solution book on SAT, ACT, GRE and GMAT.

* One on one tutoring and homework drills (if needed) for all levels of math and statistics (Kids to PhD) students.

*I offer completely individualized tutoring according to the student's strengths, weaknesses, time constraints, personality traits, motivation and my instincts.

*I want my students to take my learning methods to everything else they learn.

* I believe, everything any of my students will do for the rest of their lives will be a reflection of me, however little bit.

*SAT, ACT, GMAT, GRE, statistics, mental math, algebra, geometry, precalc, calculus - kids to PhD. I tutor for TACHS, SSAT (lower and higher level), SHPT, SHSAT and many other private school admission tests.

*Session length: 30 minutes to 5 hours.

* Started tutoring math to developmentally delayed college students 25 years ago when I was studying for my undergrad degree in Mathematics in Connecticut.

* I have different levels of test prep material for different levels of students, but within the first 2 sessions I always throw them all away and completely individualize every student's curriculum based on his or her strengths, weaknesses, time constraints, personality traits, motivation and my instincts.

* The big name test prep companies I have worked for wanted me to follow rigid paths for all students. I vehemently disagree with their way of treating students like machines.

* I put my heart and soul to teach every student just like I do to teach my own kids. I teach with absolute passion as if the whole world depends on what I do. It does. Unless I am tired, you'll notice that I get highly energized from teaching.

I have my own website on monitoring students, and I have taught SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, geometry, algebra, calculus and ASVAB at a highly reputed test prep academies which charge thousands for some of their programs.

If you are stuck with questions in mymathlab, mystatlab or any other online platform, text me, and I can help you within minutes. Due to my experience as a mental math teacher for many years, I can do most questions in my head very quickly.

I don't want my students to be robots and just replicate procedures. I want them to understand what they are doing and enjoy the process.

I want my students to visualize, draw pictures, create charts and break down the word problems into smaller parts.

I love to find ways on the fly to make students understand things that they don't understand in conventional ways. I totally individualize my teaching for every student. When I retire, I'll tutor for free. Now, I keep it as low as I can at Wyzant.

I think I am good at understanding what students are thinking incorrectly, and then I try to adjust their fundamental understanding of the concepts. I believe all learning should be fun. I love to reach out to students and make them understand why the particular technique they are learning is useful in their regular lives. I try to make them understand that math problems are just like video games, and once they learn the techniques it is easy for them to win.

Although I believe grades should just be side effects of having fun with the course, I think preparing for the test for specific teachers is a skill that should be learned and mastered. Game planning and pep talking are important functions of tutors.

I am available 7 days a week as early as 6 am and as late as midnight with appointments. I have stayed awake all night for Ph.D. students for statistics projects, and I frequently meet students at 6-8 AM if they really need it for tests.

I have a huge collection of books and notes for every math subject.

It doesn't take long for my students to notice that I could have made a lot more money doing many things outside of teaching. However, they also quickly realize that I was born to teach, and touch people's lives.

Let's enjoy learning and unlearning.

---------
"Gifted Teacher"
- Jill T.
I knew I had struck gold within 5 minutes of meeting Manny, who didn’t passively ask me what I wanted to cover that day as other statistics tutors had, but asked to see my class agenda so that he could understand what kind of support I needed. Throughout the semester, Manny supplied me with additional materials and strategies for working through problems, and was exceptionally generous with his time.

I received an A in the class and am absolutely convinced that no amount of studying on my own could have replaced Manny’s instruction. I highly recommend this gifted teacher to any student who is looking for comprehensive support in mathematics or statistics.
---------------------
"Very easy to contact, easy going, very professional!!"
- Robin C.

I am working on a Master's degree and needed help with a biostatistics course. I was lost. Manny contacted me immediately when I submitted my request for a tutor via WyzAnt. As a matter of fact, he was the only one who contacted me. He was very flexible with his hours and was extremely accommodating. He is very professional and uses all the tools of the trade - he utilizes web conferencing - gave me a copy of all the problems we worked on and gave me the opportunity to ask questions. He did not waste my time, but rather used every minute of the hours I was working with him. I will definitely be using him for the entire length of this course.
