Algebra 1 methods and concepts are the foundation for all of the future studies of mathematics. However, in addition to knowing these, the results of doing algebra work must also be correct. That is why I teach my students to do the work in a disciplined and organized way: write all the steps down, check the results at each step, and organize their written work in a very clear way. These skills minimize the chance of making careless errors. I also begin to introduce students to the functionality of the graphing calculator; it's the skill that would serve them well both now, and in the future. [more]

Tutoring is an act of observation. It succeeds where normal instruction fails because it is geared toward a student's particular strengths. My best experiences as a tutor have been with the students who needed me most, learning how they needed to learn. I have been a tutor in one setting or another since childhood. As an undergraduate I was a teacher's assistant in English, German and Astronomy, a grader in Calculus and a tutor in Physics for scientists and engineers. I have continued to... [more]

I am a highly successful high school physics and earth science teacher and tutor since 1996. I have been certified to teach physics and earth science/geosciences in three states including California. Courses that I have taught include Conceptual Physics, General Physics, Honors Physics, Advanced Placement Physics (both Calculus and non-Calculus based), Advanced Topics in Physics, Astronomy, Earth Science/Geoscience, Meteorology, Oceanography, Algebra Readiness, Algebra I, Algebra II and Pre...

I have taken many advanced math courses in college including multi-variable calculus that relies on a strong foundation in algebra. I have tutored several students in algebra and have a certain fondness for this area of math. Greetings future students, I am Liezl, a Master of Engineering student at UC Berkeley studying mechanical engineering. I have a bachelor?s degree in chemistry from Santa Clara University. I have a very strong background in both science and math, and I have a passion for building and creating things. Although my academics primarily focus on the sciences, I have a passion [more]

I'm a lifetime learning enthusiast who loves to share! My focus is on compassionate instruction; I work to build up students study skills while mastering the material in a constructive, supporting environment. My formal education consists of a BS in Mathematics and a BA in Economics. I have supplemented these informally by reading widely in Philosophy, History, Political Science, Biology, and Physics. I have a great passion for the history of ideas, which allows me to convey a subject's pla... [more]

I earned an A in Algebra 1 in 7th grade. I was born in Phoenix Arizona to two Filipino American parents. I lived most of my life in Walnut, California near Los Angeles, but I am currently a 4th year at the University of California at Berkeley. My major is Applied Math with a concentration on Education, along with a minor in Computer Science. In my spare time, I like to cook and play my guitar. I have some unpaid tutoring experience with peers, and I have gotten a lot of positive reviews about my helpfulness and ability to break dow... [more]

I have a PhD in Economics from UCDavis and a Masters in Mathematics. I have a broad background in Math/Science and Economics. I have taught a number of courses and have previously worked as a GRE/GMAT/SAT/ACT instructor. I am well regarded as an excellent instructor and am able to deal with students with a wide range of abilities in math, finance and economics. I worked a number of years as a data analyst and computer programmer and am well versed in communicating with people who have a varie... [more]

Core concepts in Alg 1 are solving linear equations & inequalities, simplifying exponents, performing basic operations involving polynomials, rational expressions, radicals, writing equations of lines, solving systems of linear equations in two variables, solving radical equations, and solving word problems. Algebra I is one of the most important math classes in high school because it is the foundation for higher math. Practice makes perfect. Being a math tutor for more than 20 years, I am committed to taking the important responsibility of providing my students with extra practice, guidance, [more]

When I began tutoring a few years ago, I firmly believed that anyone could do well in mathematics, all the way through Calculus, provided you are relatively fluent in a few formulas and make time for regular problem sets. My experience over that time has only confirmed my suspicions, and its has been a great pleasure to work with many of my students. I have always found joy in getting to the point of a big concept and keeping the focus on the purposeful real-world applications that many of ... [more]
