I have 5 years of experience working with prealgebra. My main focus is showing the bridge of connecting the concepts to future ones in algebra, geometry, etc. My name is Seth. I have loved math every since I was a little kid. It was the subject that always made sense to me and I found fun in the ability to solve problems. This passion that I have is shown in my tutoring style. I try to show how math isn't just a lame subject, but try to show how to be enthusiastic about it. I have tutored almost every subject in math while I was a math teacher at Sylvan Learning Center. My expertise is in mor [more]

*At this time, I am only accepting ACT students. Please read my full bio for a description of how I approach preparing students for the exam.

Hello - I am a 55-year-old male with a Bachelor's Degree in English and History from Carroll University (WI) in 1983, and I obtained a Masters in School Counseling in 2005. I live in Middleton WI. I have worked with middle-school and/or high school youth groups in my church from 1995-2001, and again in 2004-05. I have tutored 8th grade students at Jefferson Middle School in Madison in 2013. I have helped my 20-something peers in the 80's on their college courses, tutored a 55+ woman going... [more]

Yes, it is literally true; I won Tutor of the Year at Madison College (MATC) in 2011, working almost exclusively as a math tutor. (I started off as a Spanish tutor.) I LOVE math and traditionally have worked well with people who DON'T love math or struggle with it. I can cover all or algebra from memory; about 90% of trig as well (although for a few topics a heads-up would help so I can review); and I will be reviewing my calc soon so I can offer that as well. (I have taken it through C... [more]

I'm a middle school math teacher in Madison. I am Illinois certified middle school math teacher at Morgan Park Academy, a private school on the south side of Chicago. I love teaching young people not only the step by step processes of solving math problems, but also the concepts behind these processes. I'm passionate about what I do and live for those a-ha moments with my students. Seeing a student finally understand a difficult concept and develop confidence in their abilities is a thrill that I always look forward to. I have taught ... [more]

In the subject of Pre-algebra there are some procedures that must be followed in a certain sequence. The initials PEMDAS stand for the sequence: first, solve the part of the equation inside parentheses. Second, solve the section of the equation with exponents. Third, Multiply and/or divide. Fourth, add and/or subtract. It is necessary to understand why we keep the equation equal on both sides of the equal sign. Then we understand why we use the opposite operation on the left side of the equation as we do on the right to solve for the unknown. We learn to set up proportions: x is to [more]

As an experienced and patient tutor of physics and of math subjects through calculus and college first year linear algebra and differential equations, my great delight is in seeing the "light bulb" of comprehension in my students' faces. These subjects are not as difficult as they often seem to my students before they meet with me. My concrete illustrations and introductory exercises have been highly successful in getting students on track for academic success and in recognizing their own unt... [more]

I love children of all ages and especially love helping them succeed. I have two toddlers of my own and while they don't have homework yet they definitely love to learn, which is a rewarding experience every single day. I'm looking to tutor children in grade school or middle school who need some help with algebra, reading or English. Learning in school was always fun for me so I look forward to making it fun for the next generation of kids. As for my experience, I have a bachelors d... [more]
