As a former middle/high school math teacher, I have taught pre-algebra for 7th and 8th grade as well as high school students. In addition to teaching, I have tutored students across the breadth of math topics from multiplication/division to fractions to algebra and geometry. Therefore, I have a deep understanding of the math concepts that are critical for success in the subsequent math courses. As a former middle/high school math teacher, I am very effective helping struggling students to succeed in math. My expertise ranges from students just learning how to multiply and divide to those who s [more]

I've been tutoring prealgebra since 2004 to dozens of students for a total of hundreds of hours, so I'm sure I've seen a situation similar to what's happening with your student. I've also helped write and edit textbook teacher's editions and workbooks in prealgebra, so I'm familiar with prealgebra pedagogy and how it can differ from one school district to the next. The topics learned in middle school prealgebra form a foundation of math skills that are used in every math course that comes later in high school and college curricula. This means that if you let your student continue to struggle [more]

I have years of experience teaching math as a classroom teacher, as a tutor, as a math club coach, and in coaching other teachers. My interest is in helping my Pre-Algebra students not only to develop strong content knowledge, but also to improve their analytical thinking and attain a deeper understanding of underlying concepts that will help them succeed, not only in PreAlgebra, but in math classes and on standardized tests in the future. I have had great success in helping math-phobic students gain confidence in their abilities, and in fact, come to regard math as one of their favorite sub [more]

Prealgeba is one of the most important math disciplines because it the foundation for all subsequent math topics including Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and standardized test math including the PSAT, SSAT, SAT, ACT, and even GRE. As a Massachusetts licensed Middle School Math Teacher and former SAT Math tutor for The Princeton Review, I see firsthand how important prealgebra is to success in high school math and in standardized tests for college admittance. For this reason, I work with my students to ensure that they have a solid understanding of the building blocks of math, so that they fee [more]

Pre-algebra is an essential course for students who plan to study Algebra and other higher-level math courses (such as Algebra 1, Algebra 2, geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, ?) in high school and college. When students receive Pre-Algebra tutoring from me, I review with them the following topics so that they you can pursue higher-level mathematics with confidence and success. Some pre-algebra topics include: ? Types of numbers o Integers o Fractions o Decimals o Negative numbers ? Operational properties o Commutative properties o Associative properties o Distributive properties ? Consta [more]

I have 4 years of full-time class room experience as a math teacher. In January, Wyzant named its "Top 250 Tutors in 2015" and I am very proud to be on that list! It was such an honor to be recognized! The following vignette tells you almost everything you need to know about me and my methods and my success rate - While helping a student with calculus, she spontaneously exclaimed, "This is the most fun I've had in math all year!" This was coming from an average student whose goal was "don't fail math." But after working with her for a few months, she got an ... [more]

After a successful and enjoyable career as an engineer, I started teaching math in Dorchester, and then for four years in Brockton, MA. Many of these students were struggling in all aspects of the curriculum: reading, writing, and math. I was eager to help them in math by providing every day examples from the newspaper, and examples from my career as an engineer. I chose examples that were instances of the material that the students were learning. At the same time, I wanted examples that were relevant and motivating to my students. An example of this is the series of articles the Boston Globe [more]
