I have tutored in Algebra since retiring from teaching in 2013. I use skills honed in practical applications in Physics to help students understand Algebra concepts. In tutoring, I have learned how to use a graphing calculator to manage difficult tasks such as solving 3 equations with three unknowns using matrices. I retired from teaching middle and high school science with 20 years' experience in 2013. In my last school, I taught Biology, Physics, and Chemistry, and tutored students for TAKS and STAAR tests. I also taught middle school integrated science at a previous school, and have helped [more]

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 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]

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'm a full-time GMAT/GRE/SAT/ACT instructor and tutor, and a former high school math/physics teacher. I'm an accomplished and dedicated educator with 10 years of experience who loves helping students excel! I earned a B.S. in Chemical Physics from the Rice University Honors Scholar program and won many national, competitive awards and scholarships in high school: Junior Science and Humanities Symposium ($20,000 scholarship), Intel Science Talent Search, Intel International Science and En...

I have a Master's degree in chemistry, and for the past several years have been teaching introductory chemistry labs at the University of Texas at Austin. I have taught and/or tutored students on a number of levels, from introductory basics to more advanced scientific concepts. Since many chemistry problems involve mathematical manipulations, I am also very experienced in explaining algebra. And thanks to extensive time spent in an office setting, I am also proficient in using the Microsof... [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]

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]

In addition to the standard Algebra 2 and Precalculus curriculums, I tutor advanced topics, such as problem solving strategies for success on the AMC and AIME competitions. The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (2400 and 36 respectively), though I too had to work hard to get there, so I know what it's like when you're just starting out. Over the years, [more]
