About Elwyn


Bio

I have taught pre-Calculus, Algebra 2, Geometry, Algebra 1, and Linear Algebra at a private high school since 2012. In addition to my math courses, I have taught AP US Government and Politics, US History, Physics, and Biology. I organized a math honor society at the school to introduce interested students to topics not normally covered in high school math classes, such as fourth-dimensional geometry, map theory, and biological modeling.

I have also tutored students in pre-Calculus,...

I have taught pre-Calculus, Algebra 2, Geometry, Algebra 1, and Linear Algebra at a private high school since 2012. In addition to my math courses, I have taught AP US Government and Politics, US History, Physics, and Biology. I organized a math honor society at the school to introduce interested students to topics not normally covered in high school math classes, such as fourth-dimensional geometry, map theory, and biological modeling.

I have also tutored students in pre-Calculus, Geometry, Algebra 2, Algebra 1, and SAT prep.

Students are encouraged to ask questions in a tutoring session, whether they are about the how or the why of a given problem . My goal is to have students understand each problem and move confidently to the solution.

I am eager to work with students to achieve their academic goals. I promise one added benefit: the better a student understands math, the more interesting it becomes.

Subjects

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 and the math classes that follow: Algebra 2 and Geometry. I know, from experience, which topics in Algebra 1 require the greatest care and which are most essential for success in the years ahead.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra 2 for four academic years in a private school. During this time we used three different textbooks and that has given me an understanding of the strength and weaknesses of each. I am flexible enough to adopt an approach that will help the student.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have been teaching High School mathematics at a private school for the past four years. My courses have included Geometry, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and Linear Algebra. All of my students are college-bound, and I have taken care to incorporate SAT preparation into my lectures and lesson plans.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have taught Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and pre-Calculus at a private school for 4 years. I know what skills are necessary to succeed in these courses. In particular, I have worked with students, both as a teacher and a tutor, who need to improve their mastery of pre-Algebra in order to succeed in High School.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have 9 years experience teaching mathematics at a private school. Our Precalculus course is demanding, but we generally finish the book with a few weeks to spare. I have tutored several students in Precalculus, and I am flexible enough to conform to the approach adopted in their classrooms.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

Great teacher. Knows how to easily relate to students and finds ways to explain math easily so students can quickly learn difficult concepts. Works great with my 16 year old son with Algebra2. Very professional.

Experienced teacher, very patient

Appreciated him taking time to do assessment of current knowledge to identify weak areas (even if they aren't what he is doing right now). This will ensure they get addressed so he can have a strong understanding of fundamentals to build on. Thanks!
