"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]

Geometry is made up of theorems and postulates, inductive and deductive reasoning. This can seem daunting to the student who is not familiar to the subject. As students progress they realize that the theorems and postulates help them solve the problems in the particular area of geometry the rule applies. My expertise is to make student get so comfortable with the subject they actually find geometry enjoyable. 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 c [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 math K-12. Geometry is unlike any other math subject that students will encounter in their lives. Also, this is the subject where students first encounter formal proofs. I work with students to learn logic needed for proofs, and to create proofs on their own. I also emphasize the importance of drawing and marking correctly on the pictures so that it is easier to solve problems. 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 subject, making them think, and teaching them in t [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. One of the tricks with geometry is being able to visual the shapes and the relationships that result; I can help students work on their spatial reasoning, which makes everything that follows much easier to comprehend. 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 sett [more]

I have been teaching middle and high school math for years, helping students to raise their grades in class and scores on state tests. Math was always a challenge for me in school, so if you need someone who can explain geometry in a way that makes sense to students who don't get math, I am the tutor for you! I'm a certified teacher and Ivy League graduate with over ten years of experience teaching and tutoring Latin and English language and literature. My strategies can help you be a better reader, writer, and speaker. My students don't just learn the material--they learn to enjoy the subj [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 took the teaching and learning of secondary school mathematics courses at Columbia University. In addition, I have tutored Geometry subjects more than three years. 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 [more]

From my vast experiences as a tutor, as well as my experiences as a student teacher for a class in geometry, I feel that I am knowledgeable and able to tutor any student in geometry. In regards to geometry, my goal is to help students understand proofs and develop deeper mathematical thinking. 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 my Master's Degree [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]
