About Sava

Hello,

We can do it together!

When I was a student, I loved math. It is my favorite subject. I learned it from books, teachers and professors. I also worked and tried many activities and figured out many problems. All that mix gave me the opportunity to see the beauty of math and enjoy the elegance in advanced and abstract parts of math.

I have a master degree in math.

When I work with student, I guide. I ask questions. I am looking for the “Aha!” moment. It is when the student gets it and makes the discovery. The student answers help to see what is missing and I help student to learn what is missing. I help fix misconceptions. I also help student identify weaknesses and fix them.

I help student learn geometry. We work on identifying objects, understanding definitions and using them to relate properties of geometric figures. We can use visual approach, observation and hands on to figure out what the answer should be. I guide students to find answers and write proofs. I help also with deriving and using formulas for perimeter, area and volume. By creating connection between formulas, we create a visual image for student to remember and retrieve necessary information.

I enjoy solving problems and helping students that are interested in math. I like to draw a picture of a problem, make a diagram or act the problem. We can draw a table or make a graph.

"I do, we do, you do" is one way I can help you learn. You learn to ask yourself the important questions and decode the problem. I can help you become independent learner.

We can do it together! This is your chance to start working better and become an excellent student.

Thank you for your time.
See you soon online or in person.

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 taught Algebra 1 in high school and middle school settings for several years. Topics include functions, linear functions, finding rate of change. I also worked with simplifying expressions, exponential expressions and laws of exponents. Part of the class is solving linear equations and modeling using linear equations. I also taught measures of center and spread for a data set.

Algebra 2

I am qualified not only to teach algebra 2, but also Calculus. My favorite subjects include Algebra 2.

Calculus

I taught calculus 1 to a local college two years ago. I had 9 students and 6 of them passed the class successfully.
My undergraduate degree includes electrical engineering class, which uses complex numbers math.
I have also some classes in my graduate math degree in calculus.

Elementary Math

Big part of elementary math is understanding numbers, operations and working with fractions. I worked with students from lower grades and help them grasp concepts and clear misunderstanding. One example is prime numbers. I had this student who mistakenly taught that the prime number needs to be shown as a sum of other numbers. It is different, a prime number must have only one prime factor - itself.

Geometry

I taught 7 years high school geometry. I am familiar with the subject and can help with the visuals for geometry. I use hands-on approach to aid understanding of the learner. We can use also applications to show how geometry works.

Linear Algebra

I have a master's degree in math. One of the graduate classes was Linear Algebra 535. The textbook used for that class is Matrix analysis and applied Linear Algebra by Carl Meyer. Also, I used methods from Linear algebra in some other of my advanced classes. One example is Regression Analysis 563.

Prealgebra

I see prealgebra as a connection between arithmetic and algebra. What I help students is with facts, connections between topics relationship with real world.

Precalculus

I have studied and taught all of the topics of precalculus. This include functions, linear functions, graphing functions, graphing polynomial functions, and zeros of polynomials. Part of the class is rate of change and slope of a line. I also taught rational and irrational numbers and I have excellent understanding of them.

Trigonometry

I understand basic trigonometry. Also, we can work on simple trigonometric identities and solving trigonometric equations.
