One of Wyzant's top tutors! Susan is an excellent Algebra tutor. Her students are successful and increase their grades. She works with them on study skills and test preparation. She also makes sure they understand their HW and, if time allows, she will prepare them on the next few lessons. She brings a whiteboard and other materials with her to help the student visualize the lesson better. Her students have gone to the Math Olympics, and one placed second! She is professional, patient and caring and wants to see your student succeed! Susan is very experienced and has been tutoring for [more]

I have expertise in working with students in algebra 1. I am able to get them to understand not just the method but also the reason why algebra 1 can be applied to the real world so that they are more motivated to learn about the subject. I have a passion for helping young people in maximizing their potential and fully utilizing their talents and capabilities. I am very patient and able to diagnose the needs of each student under my care. In addition to the ability to explain things clearly, I can sense the proper strategy for reaching each of my students. I have a PhD in chemistry from UC B [more]

The approach I give to this subject doesn't differ too much with that for other Algebra levels. Making sure students have the fundamentals of Algebra when assessment takes place during first lesson is my major concern. From there on is a matter of building up on new concepts. Building blocks is what Algebra is about. I have more than 15 years of experience in tutoring students of all ages and levels of education from elementary to graduate school. I am most interested in changing the way my students perceive themselves when approaching math. Throughout the years, I have had the most rewarding [more]

I pride myself in helping students reach proficiency in math and in learning and easily recalling what they have learned. I've taught and tutored high school math in California for 16 years, was teacher of the year and math department chair for 4 years, and spearheaded several innovative programs for multiple schools to help struggling students improve the speed and proficiency of their learning. I am an excellent tutor because I offer multiple approaches to each subject with the goal of l... [more]

8 years of teaching Algebra 1 and California Multiple Subject Teaching credential Hello and thank you for taking the time to view my profile! My name is Janet, and I am a highly qualified teacher with over a decade of teaching experience teaching multiple subjects. I've taught regular classes and worked with small groups of special needs students, the gifted, and EL students. I have also been working with students who are too ill to temporarily attend their neighborhood schools since 2008 through the Home & Hospital Program at Irvine Unified School District. In additio...

I am a UCI honors graduate in mathematics with a minor in computer science. I started tutoring as a favor for a friend and have found that tutoring is one of the most rewarding experiences I can have. Many of my students have gone from D's with no understanding to A's with the ability to peer tutor their classmates. It is always wonderful to enter a student's home and hear "I got an A on the test!" or "the teacher says I am her most improved student." I look for the concepts that students... [more]

We have fun with topics such as factoring, solving and graphing linear equations, word problems, and solving a system of equations, just to name a few. I turn factoring into a fun and efficient game. And, I really enjoy connecting with the student to break down word problems by translating them into workable math problems, and thus decreasing the student's anxiety and fear. I believe students should be confident in their math skills. By getting good grades in school, their options in life (e.g. jobs, career paths) are kept open. I gauge where the student is at in knowing the concepts by ha [more]

I taught this subject for many years and can lecture entire curriculum by memory. I know of the common mistakes students make in applying many of the concepts. I can also teach tips and tricks that will facilitate mastery of the topics. In my 15 plus years of tutoring, I've had the pleasure of working many students from all walks of life and with a wide range of abilities. My favorite part of tutoring and helping students is being there to witness their "ah ha!" moment. The moment of true and pure understanding. The revelation that it all works, so long as they apply the right tools and c [more]

Algebra 1 is very easy to master if you have a good instructor. I will explain all the material to my students kindly and by using the techniques that I have learned through different grades. I will use games and visual strategies to make the concept easy to understand. I have been a tutor for Math and Farsi for about 15 years now. I used to work for an institution in LA while working as a private tutor as well. Now, due to my busy schedule and high demand I only do private and small group tutoring. I am good with children, having two of my own. My teaching techniques are effective and fun a [more]

I have explained these concepts many, many times not just for other math courses but for the sciences also. I have been around instructors for my entire life. My mother was a general tutor for the neighborhood and I helped her when our small apartment was stuffed with children and textbooks, writing, reading and aiding them with math after my own homework was done. Much later, I found a paying job at a small tutoring center. There, I mainly tutored physics and, tutoring many students working on the same subject, I was able to teach the same concepts over and over. As a result, the explanations [more]
