About Ray

I substitute teach in an Allentown high school, and have been tutoring since I was in high school. I home school my daughter.
I got 800/800 on the Math section of the GRE. I have degrees in Accounting, Education, and Mathematics, plus 40% of my Master's degree in Mathematics from Villanova.
I am highly effective in making math understandable.
• I have raised students to the highest math group when their parents were told that they were not ready. I proved that they were.
• I took a student getting low Cs and Ds to getting a 97% on their final exam

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

The beauty of Algebra is that everything balances. No matter what you do to an equation, you keep it balanced. No matter the problem, there are many ways to solve. Making them as simple as possible and avoiding errors is what makes math tricky, but I have the skills and experience to explain it.

Precalculus

Algebra is all about how fast something is moving. Calculus is about how fast something is accelerating. Getting from Algebra to Calculus requires a special ability to change the way the student sees formulas and equations. I have that ability.
