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]

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 a multiple subject credential and have tutored Algebra 1 for about 4 years. Hello, my name is Michelle, and I am a patient teacher who has been tutoring students of all ages for the past few years. I have tutored many students that have been identified with learning difficulties including ADHD/ADD and dyslexia. Prior to tutoring, I taught high school science for five years and middle school math and science for two years. I have a PhD in biology, a multiple subject teaching credential, and a bachelor's degree in microbiology. I am an excellent math, science teache... [more]

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 12 years paid tutoring experience and a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from UCSD with a minor in Science Education. Most of my tutoring experience is with students between grades 7-12 primarily in Mathematics and science, but I also tutor Spanish, English, and College level Mathematics and Sciences. I can come to you, either at your home or a neutral location such as a library. I love learning and I love helping others learn. It makes me really happy to see students succeed and grow in...

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]
