About Ralph

As a graduate of Penn State with a Bachelor's in Secondary Education focused on Mathematics my love of Math has been with me for a long time. I taught for a couple of years in public schools and enjoyed working with students. Helping them to understand and see a purpose for Math were my primary goals. A lot of students would question why they needed to learn Math and I would always try to give them a real life example of where the concepts being taught would be useful after school.

My specialty is Math but I also am available to teach some other subjects as well. I enjoy helping students reach their goals and leave a session with me with more of an understanding of material than they came in with. I am generally available in the evenings and on weekends.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals.

I am a former high school Math teacher and the subjects I taught in school were Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry. I also feel comfortable and have tutored before in all of the high school level Math subjects.

The SAT test is based primarily around Algebra and Geometry so this fits right in with my strengths as a tutor.

I have been playing poker for about 15 years now and as a person with a Mathematical mind that never shuts off I can see the odds in game situations. Based on these odds you can make a Mathematical decision on what to do. Also, through Psychology classes in college, I have become pretty adept at reading people which is very key in poker.

Please contact me to set up an appointment or with any questions you have. I look forward to hearing from you.

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

I taught Algebra I in school for two years while I was teaching. I have been tutoring in it for friends and family for the past 20 years and now I am looking to expand my clientele.

Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra 2 in high school and I have also tutored in it for a lot longer. I am able to help students understand concepts by using multiple ways of explaining how to solve problems. Everyone doesn't learn the same way and I realize and embrace that.

Geometry

Geometry was my favorite class in high school and I have always enjoyed helping others to understand it. I taught Geometry in high school a couple of years and have been tutoring in it for many years. It is truly something I enjoy and it shows when I explain it to people.

SAT Math

I scored well on the Math portion of the SAT. It is mostly Algebra and Geometry based and these are the classes I taught in high school when I was a teacher. Also, I have had many years experience tutoring in these classes. Please let me know if you are interested in SAT lessons.
