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]

To help me help you: 1. Please, be sure to have payment information on file. I may not respond to you otherwise. 2.

Before we jump into Algebra, I make sure that my client has mastered pre-algebra subjects. Many students entering algebra need work on arithmetic with fractions, how to calculate least common denominators, etc. I very often start by showing my student how to write out the prime factorization of the integers from 1 to 50, and then having the student continue, as a homework exercise, from 51 to 100. I have over 30 years of experience as a tutor and lecturer in mathematics and physics, both before and after I completed my physics & biology BA at UC Berkeley and my physics PhD at the University o [more]

Hi, I truly love working with middle and high school kids. I?m a high-energy tutor who combines great humor with intense focus. I do a lot of test prep tutoring and can teach to the test, and yet I consider every tutoring session an opportunity to both build general academic confidence as well as develop intuitive and intellectual problem-solving skills. I taught middle school and high school for ten years before completing my doctoral and post-doctoral research across Harvard?s School of Ed... [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'm an expert in working with students to develop skills and to understand concepts. My expertise is especially strong in problem solving, and applying concepts to real world situations. I enjoy working with students. When my son was in college, we used to problem solve on the phone and via email. His classmates wanted him to "rent me out". I'm a 25-year veteran of Silicon Valley with multiple degrees in Engineering. I am currently an Adjunct Professor at the Golden Gate University Schoo... [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]

I am a math/reading/writing and organizational skills tutor for students from kindergarten to college. A little bit about me: In May 2015, I graduated summa cum laude from the Dominican University of California, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies/Teacher Education, a minor in mathematics and Honors. While at Dominican, I had ample classroom and one-on-one experience with students. I worked as an assistant teacher in six different elementary school classrooms (rangin... [more]
