I taught Algebra 2 at Bloom High School for one year. Hello! I am a 32-year-old licensed teacher who specializes in high school level math. I have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics (Illinois Wesleyan University) and another BS degree in Education (Trinity Christian College). My areas of expertise is Pre-Algebra up to Algebra 2/Trigonometry, although I can tutor in other subjects such as Discrete Math and Pre-Calculus as well (if given a day notice, so I can brush up on my skills ;)). I have 3 years full-time teaching experience and over 5 years... [more]

I have taught Algebra 2 for over 25 years. When tutoring I will first make sure that a student has mastered the concepts from Algebra 1. Without these students can not perform well on the problems in Algebra 2. I also work with reading skills and vocabulary. Both of these are necessary for success in mathematics. In Algebra 2, the level of difficulty increases in the types of word problems that are covered. I show students how to break down the problems into more manageable parts and show them how to draw diagrams to help clarify the problem. [more]

My background in Algebra II is largely limited to my having tutored countless students in it through the years, at all high school levels, from beginning to advanced. Because my experience with this subject is empirical and practical more than it is purely academic, I have enjoyed marked success in helping students really struggling with understanding polynomials, systems of linear equations, basic trig, etc. Algebra forms the foundation for much of both concepts tested on standardized exams and subsequent math courses, and thus I regard as essential a firm grasp of the concepts grouped unde [more]

I am an Aurora University student majoring in Pure Math and Disability Studies. I have an Associate's Degree in Math from Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove. I have tutored Algebra 1 and 2 since 2013. I emphasize George Polya's four problem solving steps: understand the problem, devise a plan, carry out the plan, and evaluate. I live for the lightbulb moment! My goal is to create lasting learning. I understand how the schools teach, and that their way is not always how the student learns best. I offer the one- on-one, customized learning a student needs for success, without the distr [more]

I absolutely love helping students succeed, and have been involved in the field of education since the late 1990s. I am an expert on local history, and have experience working for an educational publishing company, where I worked in the field of research and fact-checking. I have contributed to many U. S. and World History texts, and have my own published works as well (including 'The Founders and Early History of Geneva' and 'An Illustrated History of Campton Township, Kane County, Illinoi...

In a Collegiate Scholars Program, I taught Algebra to gifted high school students. My approach to teaching Algebra is conceptual. I train my students to make connections between the abstraction of Algebra and real-world applications. I have over fifteen years of experience tutoring to high school, college, and graduate students. My specialty lies in tutoring mathematics in several areas such as calculus, elementary/abstract algebra, linear algebra, differential equations, real/complex analysis, and topology. In my experience, I've found that students learn mathematics most efficiently throug [more]

I have taught high school level math for 26 years. I have helped students become more confident with their ability to persevere. I taught high school math for 26 years. During those years, I taught Pre-algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and College Math. I have also helped students prep for the math portions of the ACT and SAT exams. I have helped students improve their ACT scores for the past eight years. Students have commented that their confidence in math has improved while working with me. They do not fear math anymore. I like to rely on materials that the student has been us [more]

Hello! My name is Sam and I am certified to teach secondary mathematics in Illinois. In May, 2010, I graduated from Clarke College in Dubuque, Iowa with a BA in Mathematics, certification in Secondary Education, and a minor in Spanish. I graduated with highest honors from both high school and college. I went on to get a Master's of Science Degree in Mathematics from Aurora University. I currently teach at a high school in Aurora, Illinois. I enjoy tutoring because it gives me a chance to work... [more]

I have expert subject knowledge of Algebra 2, a crucial subject for high school success. I have been using comprehensive materials to tutor Algebra 2 Block, Algebra 2, and Honors Algebra 2 students during the school year and over the summer. All students have grown in confidence and have been successful. I have been tutoring for almost 15 years now ? all levels of math, ACT, SAT test prep, college essay editing, and K-8 English. I evaluate each student?s level of proficiency and organization, using this information and his/her desired goals to devise lessons. This, combined with a student?s ef [more]

Hello. I'm a friendly, dynamic tutor with experience teaching students from middle school age to adults returning to school. I have three years of experience teaching high school English and five years of experience teaching college composition. I also have taught speech and reading classes. I really enjoy working one-on-one with students because it allows me to "see the wheels turning" as they learn to understand what they are reading or express their ideas in writing. I can be a proofreader... [more]
