About Mitiku

Whatever your need may be - Geometry, Trigonometry, Algebra I, Algebra II or Precalculus, SAT, ACT - if it is Math, I can help you with it. I have tools to help you understand and memorize mathematical concepts and formulas. I also have the tools to help you with reducing what you need to memorize as you prepare for a test.

Here is how I approach my tutoring. I constantly asses your level of comfort with math. Then I plan subsequent sessions accordingly. I do so because I believe that a difficulty at any point is an indication that a prerequisite material is either forgotten, or was never adequately learned in the first place. I am very good at identifying ways of learning that work for you.

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored Algebra 1 for many years; currently with WyzAnt and previously with a learning center in the Washington Metro area. 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".

Algebra 2

I have experience tutoring Algebra 2. I tutored Algebra 2 with WyzAnt and also with another learning center.

ASVAB

To all my prospective students and to anyone who wondered in, ASVAB is one of the most straightforward tests. Some testes are designed to fail some, or maybe a good portion, of those who take the test. The tests that fail you even when they know you qualify for what they are testing you for can only admit a limited number of people.
ASVAB is not like that.
With the military taking in only volunteering people, it is so far short of people who what to join. So, they what you in!
You see, it costs us (you included) so much money to train you to become that which you aspire to become, and the military just wants to make sure that you can get through it all. In other words, the ASVAB isn't about what you know. It is about what the military can teach you, successfully!
If you are trying it out for the first time, or if you tried out and didn't make, it text me up and I will do whatever it takes to get you in. I have taken the ASVAB test myself and my score qualified me for any enlistment program available at the time. I know how the test is put together, how the scoring works.

Finite Math

I have successfully tutored Finite Math. My student was so pleased with my performance and he also finished the course with improved grade. You can see the very good feedback I got for those tutoring sessions on my profile under the title "Respectful." I have a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from George Mason University.

Geometry

As you can see from the testimony given by my students I am very good at explaining geometry. By using physical object I help my students understand what it is they are being asked to do.

SAT Math

I have previously tutored students preparing for SAT math and I am very familiar with kind of math the SAT questions come from. I can teach my students effective test-taking skills like "step-cutting" approaches, and "elimination technique."

Respectful

He is respectful and understanding. He is flexible with timing. He teaches complex information in a simpler way. He cares about teaching the information more than once if the student did not understand it.
