My approach to working with your student will be conceptual, practical, and personal. I combine content knowledge with patience and understanding. As a high school Math teacher I experienced highly positive... [more]

I have been preparing students to perform well on standardized exams such as the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and GRE ever since my college days. The scores of the very first student I taught increased by 80 points on the verbal section and 30 points in math on the PSAT, to the delight of his parents. The SAT and the ACT test a student's test-taking abilities - his or her ability to reason through a problem, whether in a math or verbal section, and that often requires test-takers to essentially invent their own creative problem-solving shortcuts on the spot. My lessons are aimed at teaching students how t [more]

I have 5 years of experience teaching high school Geometry, and have tutored dozens of Geometry students one-on-one. Students are 1st introduced to the use of logic in high school geometry, and this is a new skill to develop, and essential to complete proofs. This is the biggest help I give Geometry students - I have them approach a problem both from the conclusion, working backward ("for this to be true, what do I need? How can I get that?") and forward ("Given this, what does it do for me? And what else can I get from it? How does it link to what I need?"). I have THEM talk out the [more]

I have taught (and tutored) Geometry for 4 years. I work with students to master topics and improve their logic and reasoning skills through geometric proofs. I encourage students to apply advanced problem-solving skills. Hi! I am currently in my 7th year teaching high school math. Now, I teach Geometry and Pre-Calculus and I have previously taught Algebra II and Statistics. I also spend a lot of time tutoring during school and as part of after-school programs to prepare students for standardized tests as well as in-class assessments like tests and quizzes. I love teaching (and tutoring) bec [more]

I am also on the Education Council at MIT, being involved with applicants'... [more]

I am a semi-retired genetic engineer, having worked in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry all my professional career. I have a solid background in the biomedical sciences (PhD in Physiology-Biophysics, Two MS degrees in Microbiology and in Biological Sciences, and a BS in both Biology and Chemistry). Because of my experience teaching in college adjunct positions and in private tutoring, I have learned how important it is not just to help students learn the basics, but students also need to ...

Geometry is quite different from Algebra and often times, students that excel in Algebra may have trouble with Geometry. Geometry is visual which can be helpful with the right examples. Proofs are more logical and can be mastered with the right end result in mind. The basics rules are often skimmed through but are essential to the process. I provide general study guides with formulas and theorems to help every student succeed. Tutoring all levels of mathematics for public, private and home-school students. I follow each student's curriculum, providing supplemental materials as needed. Dis [more]

I have been working as a tutor at many Boston-area public and private schools, including: Winchester, Lexington, Newton, Wellesley public schools; BB+N, St. Mark's, Brooks, Rivers, Commonwealth. Much of my experience has been with high-functioning students with learning differences (dyslexia, Asperger's, ADHD, etc.), working to help them find ways to apply their strengths to the areas of concern. I have tutored high school math + science coursework, as well as general executive functioning, a... [more]
