About Mitiku


Bio

I have always liked explaining, and I found out that I am good at it when I went to college, where we were encouraged to help one another with our homework. I have been helping students ever since and I would like to do the same for you. I have approachable personality that puts students at ease and I am confident about my knowledge of the subjects I tutor.

I tutor students preparing for GRE, ASVAB, SAT//ACT Math, and students learning Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Precalculus, Geometry and Trigonometry. I have tried-and-tested methods to help my students understand and memorize mathematical concepts and formulas. I also have the tools to help with reducing what needs to be memorized. I can also equip my students with valuable test-taking skills that are crucial when taking standardized testes.

GRE

GRE

I have helped out a number of students preparing for GRE. They have all improved their understanding and their scores. My students like how simple and very targeted my approach is. Every student is unique. With that in mind, I put together a plan specific to your needs starting the second session. If you dutifully follow, you can be successful.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

The secret to a successful tutoring when it comes to Elementary Math (Prealgebra in general) definitely isn't in the Prealgebra skill. I have been working with kids who just can't focus. I have even worked with kids who have behavioral problems. And, I helped them improve anyway. I just use all the tricks that have worked for me so far, to get them to participate as we move forward.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring Algebra 1 for over five years; currently with WyzAnt and with Mathnasium of Annandale. I enjoy tutoring Algebra I because of its importance as a base for any Math to follow. When it comes to efficiency, my method of tutoring goes beyond just helping students "do the math" - I help my students understand the math using all the efficient skills I have acquired over the years.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring Algebra 2 for a number of years now - currently WyzAnt and previously with another learning center. I have had many students who, consciously or not, concluded that Math "just is not the thing" for them, and I have watched live as many of them realize for themselves how such a statement is not just completely wrong, but that it had been a hindrance. The Algebra skill is just half of the half that is needed. There is so much more that goes into tutoring a student successfully. I would just mention one here. Caring for the student enough, and acting out of that care in a way the student understands the care, and gets empowered by it, is what I offer.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is all about objects and how we quantify them. Geometry really is about objects you can touch, measure and alter. I would have my students measure, cut, concatenate, and even color. It works better when they know why they are doing what they are being asked to do. It works better when they are fully involved in the process. It is also fun that way.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

The secret to a successful tutoring when it comes to Prealgebra (and Elementary Math in general) definitely isn't in the Prealgebra skill. That's just a very small part of it. I have been working with kids who just can't focus. I have even worked with kids who have behavioral problems. And, I help them improve anyway,
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Conics, Parametrica Equations, Polar/Spherical Coordinates, Polar Representations of Complex Numbers, Simultaneous/Metrics Equations, Trigs and Limits, are the stuff of Precalculus that I have been tutoring for years now. I have worked at learning centers and have hundreds of hours working with Precalculus students.
SAT Math

SAT Math

I have been helping students preparing for SAT math for over five years now. I am very familiar with kind of math topics the SAT covers. I can also teach my students effective test-taking skills elimination technique, cutting out unnecessary steps and much more.

Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I have been tutoring ASVAB for six years. I have also taken the test myself, and my score qualified me for any enlistment program available at the time. ASVAB is a very straightforward tests . Here are a couple of things that anyone considering taking ASVAB should know. First, take the test the day you as soon as you decided to join. Chances are the recruiter will tell you when to come back for the test. Get a good book the same day and start reading as much as you can, and go take the test. Why should you do this? You will know where you stand how much you would need to pass before you seriously start studying. You will also know how the test "feels" like and it doesn't cost you but a trip to another town that you don't pay for. The biggest reason is that I have yet to meet a student who didn't need more than a month to prepare for ASVAB, which means you will not be loosing time by taking the test knowing (or suspecting) you may not pass. Second, resist the temptation to use calculator when studying. There are lots of techniques you can learn and use that will make calculating without calculator easy, and even enjoyable.

Great math tutor!

Mitiku was very patient, and knowledgeable. He taught me solve numerical math problems in different ways, and showed me different approaches. He taught me a different way of thinking!

Alexandra, 1 lesson with Mitiku

Two great catch-up sessions

My nephew was switched into a new algebra 2 class a few weeks ago and started to struggle immediately. He wasn't connecting with the teacher, didn't understand the material, and was getting really frustrated. In two sessions, Mitiku helped him learn the material he either missed or didn't understand. My nephew is now heading confidently into a make-up test tomorrow. Mitiku "really knows his stuff," according to my nephew!

Very Smart!

My son enjoyed working with Mitiku very much on Algebra 2/Trig. He was able to help him understand the current chapter. After working with Mitiku, my son retook a test and improved his grade.

Amanda, 1 lesson with Mitiku

Very Productive

Mitiku was engaged to help my son with pre-calculus HN at the end of his sophomore year. My son was struggling with his grades and was desperate for a quick turn around. He was able to achieve this with Mitiku's help in a short period of time. My son who is usually reluctant to tutoring took a liking to Mitiku's style of teaching from the very first class. Mitiku demonstrated lot of patience and expertise in explaining complex topics. Should a tutoring need arise again he will be our first choice.

Attentive

My son was struggling with geometry mid-year. Mitiku was patient and helped him follow through on concepts. My son really responded to his personality and approach. We really appreciated that he helped my son keep his head above the water on the assignments but was also able to give him the confidence to understand the concepts.

Cares

Mitiku cares about his teaching. Currently, he is tutoring my Son in Algebra 2. My first observation, he cares a lot about teaching and my Son. He makes sure that my Son understands the subject. He is also very patient and knows how to interact with my teenage son.

Elizabeth, 2 lessons with Mitiku

Awesome tutor

Mitiku is a great tutor, very direct, and explains very clearly. His techniques are very reliable, easier to understand and each sessions are tailored to my son’s needs. After each sessions, my son understood the concept and build confidence to better perform both in formative and subjective assessments. My son’s grade improved tremendously. He is nice, patient, well organized and very intelligent! Meron

Very Helpful Lesson

Appreciated the step by step approach. Very helpful for clearing up the parts that had been confusing about a previous Unit and to get ahead on upcoming concepts to master.

James, 1 lesson with Mitiku

Knowledgeable and patient Tutor
