About Neemisha

I am a certified math teacher that LOVES math! My goal is to pass this love of math around to students thru remediation, coaching, homework help or anything else that may fit your child's mathematical needs.
Over the past ten years I have worked with students in varying capacities from volunteering, tutoring, and teaching summer courses to full time teaching. My experience working with students has been in various private, public and charter schools. Tutoring is what I do as a career and I enjoy it tremendously. Watching students grow and become more confident and more successful is why I do this.

I look to create a positive environment where I can help motivate students to engage in both analytical and critical thinking in mathematics. I believe that working with students 1-on-1 and in small group settings can allow students to get their questions asked and not feel intimidated or worry about the pace of the class. I truly believe that my students' success is my success. I invest in each and every one of my students and try to be flexible, accommodating and available. My goal is for each of my students to not only feel successful but BE successful.

I have experience working with students in the following ways:
1. Helping to move students from on level classes to honors level classes.
2. Helping students transition from one school system to another, including international schools.
3. Helping students with homework and organization skills.
4. Helping students be more confident in the classroom so that they can ask more questions in class.
5. Helping students not feel intimidated in the classroom.
6. Helping students be more confident in their math skills.
7. Helping students with general test taking skills.
8. Helping students understand the role of mathematics in their future.
9. Helping students maximize his/her mathematical potential.
10. Helping students with the AMC/Math Counts/Math Team questions.
11. Helping students with the Math sections on the ACT/SAT.
12. Sending students extra worksheets when needed.
13. Checking students homework that they text/email me.
14. Giving Emergency last minute sessions.
15. Helping students catch up with work due to a long absence in school.
15. Helping students take placement exams in college and high school.
16. Helping young teachers get better scores on the Praxis Exam.
17. Helping with regular or honors level middle and high school math classes.
18. Helping students on the Regents Exam.
19. Encouraging students to contact me with any questions they have between sessions.
20. Helping students understand that they can and will do better than they are currently doing.

And so much more!

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.

ACT Math

One of the biggest differences between the ACT and the SAT is that the ACT also has some trigonometry included in the test, which usually students do not see until their junior year. Some students may see it a little earlier.

Algebra 1

Having a strong understanding of Algebra 1 is quintessential for a student's success in higher mathematics. This is where most students start to struggle, and it continues into the later years.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is my favorite subject. This course allows you to truly explore your understanding of functions. Whether they are linear, quadratic, rational, polynomial or exponential. Depending on the course, many teachers also include trigonometry. Algebra 2 is one of the most challenging courses students will take, honors or non-honors. It is important that students keep up with the work level and keep up with practicing. I have found that when students don't keep up with the work load they tend to fall behind quickly, and it becomes increasingly difficult to keep up with the course.

GRE

Performing well on exams like the SAT, ACT and GRE is partially about the mathematics and partially about the strategies needed to do well. See my blog about some basic strategies.

SAT Math

Performing well on exams like the SAT is partially about the mathematics and partially about the strategies needed to do well. The SAT includes math equations that range all the way to Algebra 2. There are some difficult questions about functions, usually linear and quadratic. There are also quite a few Geometry questions. It is important students practice so that they have the formulas they need memorized and they have some strategies in place. See my blog about some basic strategies.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is all about triangles, that's why I love it! The difficulty lies in the fact that there is so much rote memorization early on with the different trig functions, their graphs, working with degrees or radians as well as all the different angle values. It is formula heavy and requires more memorization than the previous year of Algebra 2.

The best tutor! — I contacted Neemisha for help prepping for a math placement exam for my first year of college. She was absolutely amazing, patient, understanding and so helpful. After more than a year of being out of school and not studying math, I had forgotten a lot. She was so understanding with my situation and guided me through an intensive month of preparing for the exam. She helped me through the basics up ...
