I am a professional mechanical engineer, with decades experience teaching high school and college level mathematics, including Algebra 2. I specialize in advanced math, science, and engineering subjects at the college-level but also teach English, writing, and music. My experience as a teacher spans over 15 years with a strong track record for success. I believe everyone, and I mean everyone, has the capacity to learn, and I do my best to take the subject material and make it as easy to understand and retain as possible. Unlike most teachers, I have strong industry experience, and therefore ac [more]

Understanding algebraic concepts and their associated operations will be imperative if you intend to succeed in your future STEM classes and standardized exams. In fact, solving for unknown values is one of the core objectives of any natural science, (quantitative) social science, or mathematics course. Algebra II will introduce you to an additional range of methods, over and above those in Algebra I, in order to do so. Moreover, you will explore various types of advanced relationships (e.g., Conic Sections) and functions in this course that are incredibly useful in modeling experimental data. [more]

I have been a math tutor for five years. I also worked as a middle school math teacher in a high needs school for one year. I believe in the UPS - check method of solving problems. That is: U - Understand the problem - what is being asked P - Plan how you are going to solve the problem S - Solve the problem Check - Check your solution, particularly for reasonableness I believe in giving the students the background so that they can understand how and why certain solution methods work. This... [more]

I have extensive experience tutoring both high school and college students in all of the Algebra classes. My patient and thorough approach is proven to be very effective with students. I have a long history of tutoring math and science at Austin Community College in addition to working as an engineer, so I can understand the application of the math and science. But more importantly, I want my pupils to learn the subject matter so they can solve problems on their own. I believe in a very patient approach that encourages the student to believe in their ability to learn the material and perf [more]

I have taught Algebra II and Honors/Pre-AP Algebra II at the high school levels for over 30 years. I have written curriculum and developed instructional activities for both these courses. So often I find that students have been presented with steps and rules rather than the development of the why something works. Therefore, I take the time to develop concepts and understanding of the mathematics. I have tutored in the south Austin area for the past six years as well as provided instruction for home schooled students. I have taught the following elementary and secondary courses: 5th, 6th, 7t [more]

With all Algebra classes, I capitalize on your strengths and cut out the useless fluff. If your teacher?s method doesn?t work for you, we find something that does and get you feeling confident with practice. In total, I have 6 years of experience tutoring students in Math from the middle school to high school level. During college, I worked at the Mathnasium Tutoring Center and learned many of the "Mental Math" tricks and shortcuts they taught. Over the years, I?ve developed several other tricks and shortcuts across the board to help my students with concepts where the teacher's method for so [more]

A long time mathematician, I exhibited unusual talent from an early age, excelled in algebra during high school, scored in the top 6% on the SAT math section, and further developed my algebra skills in college. Throughout various careers, I have effectively applied my algebra skills toward streamlining my work. I have since used my knowledge of the K-12 math curriculum & current best instructional practices to successfully tutor many elementary, middle school, high school, and college students in algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, improving their algebraic thinking & preparing them well for [more]

I was an engineer in the semiconductor manufacturing industry for 25 years prior to becoming a teacher at St. Michael's Catholic Academy. While there, I taught Algebra 2 for nine years. With this experience, I brought a problem-solving methodology to the classroom. In other words, my teaching practice included providing whenever possible, more than one way to solve a problem. I also included visual demonstrations whenever possible, using my hands, drawings on the blackboard, and my one and only 'Parabola Dance'. This was where I moved up and down, and left and right, while announcing change [more]

Algebra 2 is another favorite of mine and I have a lot of experience tutoring students in algebra 2 for high school and for the more difficult math section of the SATs. I have always had a passion for math while also helping others learn and become proficient in math. I can tutor all high school mathematics courses and most college level mathematics courses. I have an AA degree in Mathematics Education and a BBA in Accounting. I have worked as an international tax accountant for the last two years for a CPA firm in Austin, Texas.... [more]

Algebra 2 is one of my favorite subjects to teach because it's where math really starts to get interesting. I have taught over 1000 students in Algebra 2 which has given me an eye for individual needs of different students. Whatever your struggles in Algebra 2 may be, there is a way to solve the problem and it isn't as difficult as you think at first glance. I taught math for five years at at Austin High School and I believe in making math a language that everybody is fluent in. I take a holistic approach to the learning process and believe it is learned best like any other language: with regu [more]
