With the movement from the simplicity of four functions into the idea of properties of those functions, many children might feel lost. Rather than being asked to follow a process that can be accomplished by counting physical objects, they now have to develop a deep understanding of the rules governing how numbers can be manipulated. Rather than using memorization, Michal takes an "understand the idea at its core" approach. If a student knows the basic premise behind an idea, it can be derived every time, rather than using valuable brain space memorizing. [more]

I have had success bringing students to higher levels in their math skills. I accomplish this by showing them that mastering the subject is doable, even if it takes time. I also bring a sense of humor to teaching that lightens the atmosphere and allows them to relax as we forge ahead. My emphasis is strategy. Once your student is knowledgeable of a certain skill, he/she will be able to apply it when a similar problem arises. I know I can make your student feel comfortable in class. I am NYS Mathematics (7-12), Business Education (1-12) and Social Studies (7-12) certified. I have taught thes [more]

As a math person, I know that most people aren't 'math people.' Part of the reason for this is that math is not being taught in context. When students see math as useful in real life decision making, the concepts are easier to understand and to solidify. Many students find that their math skills evaporate quickly, but with proper instruction the learning effect can be lasting. I leverage extensive academic, professional, and educational experience in order to provide the customized lessons necessary for maximizing math skill improvement and retention. [more]

I'm a recent graduate from The Cooper Union with a Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering. Since Algebra is an essential cornerstone of Mathematics and Engineering, I used it a great deal in my undergraduate education. Most notably, I was able to apply my fundamental knowledge of Algebra to manipulate complex systems of equations in advanced Chemical Engineering coursework. As a Biomedical Engineer, I'm passionate about learning and applying my breadth of knowledge in unique ways. My learning style is rooted in breaking down mental barriers between subjects to enhance overall compreh [more]

I'm currently a premedical post-baccalaureate student at Columbia University. I attended high school in Westchester County, New York, where I was inducted into the National Honor Society my sophomore year. I received enough Advanced Placement course credits to begin college at Indiana University as a sophomore, and graduated in three years with departmental honors and 1/10 point short of general honors. My degree (2011) was in an individualized major combining bioanthropology and nutrition,... [more]

I have been a professional tutor for the past 5 years. My specialties are the ACT/SAT (I scored in the 99th percentile for these), SSAT, and ISEE. I get results: just recently I had another student take her ACT composite score from 22 to 33. My average points increase for the ACT is 4-6 points (composite! which is huge) and SAT/SSAT is 250. I enjoy working with my students and find that they connect well to my warm, engaging, and energetic personality. I love being a mentor and I am overjoyed... [more]
