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.

Mr. Mitiku teaches my son Geometry. I strongly agree that he has helped my son improve in Math, he pushes his mind to go further and I like that. I am truly seeing better results, not just in his work but in his confidence. He has helped boost his confidence a lot, my son is now starting to feel comfortable asking questions about the topic in class. His grades have also improved dramatically, I strongly suggest that you choose him to be your tutor. He is not just patient but he is also calm and knows how to interact with kids on a whole other level.
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.
Mitiku is a great Tutor! My son is finally gaining confidence and mastery of his Math material! Highly recommended if you’re looking for an affordable and talented tutor!
Session One: For this session we worked on several problems forma study guide. Converting from mixed to proper fraction and back, and finding LCM, working on percentages, ratios (cross multiplication) are among the math concepts discussed.
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.
He is a great tutor to have by your side. He reads a question and breaks it down into ways easier to understand. He makes sure you comprehend the material and goes back and teaches it if you are still confused. Not only is his explaining things much easier but he actually makes it fun! Thanks to him, my grades has improved, I understand the material we are learning in class now and very pleased with the tutorial sessions he and I have together. Mitiku is very humble and patient and can make you like math in ways you would never expect. I think, from a student's point of view, that you should really consider having Mitiku as your tutor!
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.
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".
I have experience tutoring Algebra 2. I tutored Algebra 2 with WyzAnt and also with another learning center.
I have so far tutored five students preparing for ASVAB. I have taken the test myself and my score qualified me for any enlistment program available at the time. I think ASVAB is a very straightforward tests. Here are a couple of things that I think anyone considering taking ASVAB should know. One is the two scores - the minimum score needed to get in the door - and the score needed to qualify for a chosen career path. Second, and equally important, is taking test without doing too much preparation and finding how much work is needed - doing so will help you as you prepare because you will approach the preparation having a general idea as to what to expect during the test. If you only need to improve your score by a single digit for example, you probably only need a couple of tutoring sessions.
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.
The key to a successful tutoring - when it comes to Geometry is - making sure the student visualizes. I do it by finding ways to relate what is being discussed to a real life example. Once a student understands that Geometry really is about objects you can touch, measure and alter, a sense of familiarity sets in and understanding becomes easier. I do this with every student and they have all improved significantly.
I have helped out a number of students preparing for GRE with improved scores. Quantitative section of (more generally the math section is where I am useful the most.
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."
