Elementary Math

Over the course of many years, I have worked with multiple elementary-aged students on their various math topics. My goal with any younger student is to ensure their foundational understanding is concrete and automatic before expanding into more detailed topics. By making sure the background knowledge is strong and the student is comfortable with the ideas and topics being discussed, I am adequately able to extend the lesson into more examples and practice with problem-solving and applications of various topics.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Over my teaching and tutoring career, I have led several classes in Algebra I (both one and two-year formats) and have driven students to increase their understanding of tricky concepts. My aim is to reinforce the most basic concepts, such as factoring, quadratic functions, and solving linear equations, so students can push their bounds of learning in higher-level topics and classes. I find using repetition and I-do, we-do, you-do formats, my students get the most of their learning with my lessons.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have had the pleasure of teaching and tutoring students in Algebra 2 over multiple years. My areas of expertiese in Algebra 2 include rational and radical expressions, polynomial functions, and logarithmic/exponential functions. Students who have learned under me have seen dramatic increases in their understanding and improved local and state test scores as well.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have over 5+ years of experience both teaching and tutoring both high school and college-level geometry. Students with whom I have tutored or taught gain great insight into the inner-workings of Geometry, especially in troublesome areas such as Euclidian (two-column) proofs and multi-step modeling problems (including those involving volume and/or trigonometry). My aim is to break down individual problems into easier-to-manage chunks so students can master easier topics before creating lasting answers and habits.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

In previous teaching assignments, I have taught middle school mathematics and prealgebra courses to multiple students/school districts. Here, my aim is to cement foundational concepts such as solving linear equations, order of operations, exponential expressions and properties, and work with quadratic/polynomial functions. By making these functions and topics foundational, students have a concrete support for Algebra I courses taken at the high-school level.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have experience in tutoring and teaching senior-level Pre-Calculus topics to various students. My aim with Pre-Calculus is to reinforce the Algebra 2 topics that are reviewed in Pre-Calculus so that students become habitual in their problem-solving methods and can satisfactorily expand on their knowledge in Pre-Calculus, setting them up for success in Calculus (whether as AP Calculus or college-level).
SAT Math

SAT Math

In my years as a tutor for various versions of the SAT Exam (math sections), my focus is to help students achieve the highest possible math section scores that I can by emphasizing appropriate and successful test-taking strategies. Whereas most students understand the material but struggle with focus and methodology on the test, my expertiese is in finding new ways to approach questions and solve problems with minimal work and to become aware of tricks and devices that will help students solve more questions and increase their confidence during the studying and testing processes.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

I have designed and taught a wholly-elective Trigonometry course in a past teaching assignment. This course focused entirely on mostly all components of trigonometry, from right-triangles to angle measurements and forms, the six trigonometric ratios, trig. equations and identities, and non-right-triangle trigonometry. Expanding on these topics lets students have a solid foundation to expand on other similar topics in higher-level courses such as Pre-Calculus and Calculus.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Garrett is very helpful with explaining math concepts in several ways if my son doesn't understand. He is patient and kind and my son has improved already with just a few sessions.

Ashton, 1 lesson with Garrett

Helped with test preparation

Helped with pre calculus exam. Did well 87 on it! He was kind and patient and found him to be quite helpful. I would recommend Garrett to others having the same issues that I had

Sharon, 2 lessons with Garrett

Great experience!

Garrett was very thorough in teaching the material, and had me do plenty of practice to ensure I understood applying the concepts. He’s super patient and knowledgeable.

Erin, 6 lessons with Garrett

Excellent tutor! Knowledgeable in algebra 2

Garrett helped my daughter with an honors algebra 2 assignment, working with solving radical functions. He quickly established a connection, and was able to effectively converse with her. He was adaptable with his teaching methods, and ensured she got what she needed out of the session. Garrett's high energy level made solving math not just tolerable, but fun. We will definitely look for him with any future needs.

Brandi, 1 lesson with Garrett

Doing a great job for my son

My son is a junior in Hs and was not looking forward to getting a tutor in pre-Cal. However, now after 3+ lesson with Garrett, he is looking forward to the sessions and making great progress. We are very pleased.
