I have worked with students taking pre-Algebra as a teacher and as a tutor. I have an understanding of the concepts and their importance to further math studies, and have used many techniques to help students master the concepts. 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 students with organization and study skills. I am certified grades 6-12 for science. Si [more]

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 actually know how math and science ar... [more]

Hi there, I love teaching! My subject specialties are Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, English, and ESL. There's nothing like the rush of putting foreign language skills to the test in real-time conversation. I used Spanish every day during my semester abroad in Argentina, which is where I learned the importance of active practice when learning a foreign language. After Argentina, I went to China to improve my Mandarin Chinese in the same way I did with Spanish, and I enrolled in full time C... [more]

Developing a sound grasp of the concepts and operations introduced in Pre-Algebra is necessary for your child to appreciate the value and usefulness of algebraic reasoning. With a wealth of supplemental materials at my disposal and a patient, encouraging demeanor, I can assist your child in mastering the problem-solving strategies that he or she will encounter in this course. Allow me to enhance your child's mathematical literacy by fostering a sound comprehension and approach to the mechanics of Pre-Algebra. [more]

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, 7th & 8th grade math, Algebra I, Pre-AP Algebra I, Geometry, Pre-AP Geometry, Algebra 2... [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]

As a certified middle school generalist, my greatest strength is preparing students for high school academics - particularly mathematics. Besides growing up gifted in math, I excelled in high school algebra & geometry, and my college training included linear algebra, business analysis, physics, and statistics - all of which require command of algebra. In my teaching career, I studied the middle school & high school math curriculum very closely, and helped prepare many 6th & 7th graders for high school algebra. [more]

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, I've worked with students suffering from ADD, autism, dyslexia, dysgr... [more]
