Algebra is the foundation through which students can better understand higher levels of mathematics such as Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Precalculus. It is important that students attain a good comprehension of Algebra if they wish to succeed in future math classes. I ensure my students do so by making the subject as simple and painless as possible. Hi! I am a Long Beach Poly PACE alumna and graduate from UCI (double majored in cognitive science and philosophy) willing to help out high school students with their math skills, especially those struggling in Prealgebra, Algebra, Geometry, and Al [more]

I love math and I love to teach it to students. I believe that becoming proficient in math at lower levels, by building a strong foundation, tremendously helps students gain understanding, confidence, and helps them succeed in their educational goals. I have worked with students at different levels from elementary school to college and I love to witness that "aha" moment! I am passionate about helping students succeed by improving grades and understanding in academic classes and increasing their test scores as much as possible. I graduated from University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) wit [more]

With over 15 yrs experience, I have a solid background in tutoring students from elementary math to college algebra. I also have an extensive tutoring background in a variety of subjects, including but not limited to Language Arts and Biology as well as Math. A sample of my experience consists of helping students write essays, interpret bio-scientific concepts, and solve quadratic equations. My specialized area is math with age groups varying from preschool to college level. I have experie... [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 have been teaching and tutoring math since I was in college, and have been doing it professionally for the last 15 years. I tutor mostly high school and college students, but I have tutored 3rd grade thru univesity too. I enjoy math and I have many different ways to approach difficult subjects. I am NOT big on memorizing formulas, although there are a few that DO need to be memorized. I try to approach math from a logical perspective so that the formulas and functions make sense. I am ...

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 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]

I took algebra 1 and 2 in high school and received an A in both courses. I also constantly use algebra in my upper level math courses, including: calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, complex analysis, and others. I have previous experience tutoring for calculus, both differential and multi-variable. I also teach algebraic manipulation of equations as a chemistry teaching assistant at UC Irvine. I am currently a graduate student at UC Irvine studying to get my PhD in Physical Chemistry. My knowledge base includes other science topics including: physics, biochemistry, math, and prog [more]

Majoring in the Engineering Sciences in college has reinforced my command of Algebra. After an extensive study of the methods of Calculus, Algebra becomes sort of like your ABCs of higher mathematics. I've spent my thousands of hours of tutoring experience assuring everyone of the necessity of a strong command of algebraic solution techniques--completing the square, linear systems of equations, the distance formula--because of their ubiquity in higher mathematics. The most elegant aspect of mathematics for me is this very empirical structure; higher mathematics is a set of ideas that will e [more]

I have tutored and studied, at a graduate level, a broad range a math topics focusing on calculus and statistics. I have found math tutoring to be one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Many students report that they do not like math and/or are not good at math. Many of the people I have tutored have experienced success in math for the first time and that success was all they needed to change their mind, at least somewhat, on both counts. I love math, and it is very rewarding ... [more]
