"The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense." Thomas A. Edison The above captures all that I believe is necessary to succeed - in academics and athletics alike. I have found Edison's words to be true in my own experience, and I believe any student with a reasonable goal can achieve it by working hard, being relentless, but keeping a good head on his/her shoulders all the while. Soon after arriving at Bosto... [more]

I taught Algebra1, Biology, and Geometry for seven years to high school freshmen and sophomores. In college I studied math to the calculus level in economics and finance. I have eight years classroom experience working with students of differing strengths and weaknesses. Students with varying learning styles and abilities can be taught using a variety of creative techniques. Using this approach to teaching almost certainly will allow you to find ways of stimulating students to grasp the material being taught. I have learned in the process of teaching that each person can be taught the subjec [more]

When I became a college student, I was offered a position at my University's math tutoring center. Because of my previous experiences as a tutor, I was up for the new challenge. During my Sophomore year, I became a Teacher's Assistant working in classes of 25-40 students. Throughout my various experiences, I learned that I had a knack for figuring out the way people think and what methods help certain people grasp a new concept best. A problem facing many students in Math is that a majority ... [more]

I am certified to teach mathematics K-12. Many students have difficulty when first encountering abstract math, so Algebra is my most requested subject. I have successfully tutored many students, who improved their grades in Algebra I dramatically. I also developed a curriculum that I am teaching to 5th and 6th graders starting them on Algebra at an early age, so that they are familiar with the concepts when they go on to take Algebra formally. I believe that every student is capable of learning. My goal is to allow them to reach their maximum potential by getting them interested in the subjec [more]

I am a full-time high school physics and engineering teacher, and have both taught and tutored in high school math and chemistry as well. I have years of experience to draw on and can both break down concepts to their fundamentals and also demonstrate applications in order to make abstract concepts more relevant and concrete. I find nothing more rewarding than helping students to deeply understand how things work and to watch them grow more and more confident in their own abilities. I am a full-time high school physics and engineering teacher, and the classroom setting allows for all kinds of [more]

I have been teaching middle and high school math for several years. The key to improving your math grade is understanding the simple steps involved in solving any particular problem. I can help you break the problem down to the point where it becomes easy. Also, on a personal note, as a student I was always much more comfortable with words than numbers, so I understand what it's like to struggle with math; as a result, I am especially patient and have found many different ways of explaining each math concept. If I can do it, I know you can too! [more]

When I first started my college journey, I hadn't a clue about what I wanted to do. Over the years, I've narrowed it down to two things: I love working with people, and I love helping them learn. I've spent years working for other tutoring/test prep companies and have decided to venture out on my own. As a graduate with a degree in Biochemistry, I have a very strong foundation in math and science. When I took my own SAT over 10 years ago, I scored a 2220 (with an 800 on Math, 700 in Reading,...

I am teaching all different mathematics courses at a community college. Especially, I have taught algebra I course more than 3 years (6 semesters) I have thought all secondary mathematics subjects from Basic algebra to calculus topics. I also earned Educational Doctoral degree (Ed.D) from Teachers College, Columbia University. While I was tutoring students with mathematics subjects, I realized that the ordinary approach is not motivating our students. So, I use a bit different approach. For example, I usually provide an opportunity for students to explain and discuss a topic with me. In order [more]

As a certified teacher and graduate of NYU's Master Degree program in high school math education, I am passionate about math and math teaching. I have taught Algebra 1 to many students, and have unique strategies to get students to understand the subject matter and therefore improve their performance in school. I am an experienced classroom teacher and math tutor. As a certified math teacher, my belief is that every student can learn math. No exceptions. Utilizing my math skills I obtained when I completed a BA in Mathematics at Rutgers and the educational techniques that I learned at NYU for [more]

Every March 14th, I have a party to celebrate Pi Day. This is how much I love math! First and foremost, I believe that all students can succeed. In math, there are always multiple approaches to a problem, and I help each student find the pathway that works best for them. To make math meaningful, I guide students to self-discovery, and as much as possible, I show them how math connects to other disciplines or to their interests. I also do my best to instill an appreciation for numbers t... [more]
