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

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.

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

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.

GRE

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.

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."

Great tutor!!!

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 st
