One of Wyzant's top tutors ! Susan is a fantastic Precalculus tutor and passionate about teaching math. She enjoys tutoring this subject. She completely and clearly explains the concepts, prepares the student for any upcoming quizzes or tests, and prepares them for their final exam. In Precalculus, the student typically needs to know everything about trigonometry ( She loves teaching trigonometry). Trig can be hard for some students, but she explains the concepts in a simple way and demonstrates the Unit Circle. Many teachers don't explain in detail how the Unit Circle works with tri [more]

I have experience tutoring precalculus and am willing to give practice exams at no extra cost to help evaluate you or your child's areas of strength and weakness as well as monitor his or her progress in mastering precalculus. I have a passion for helping young people in maximizing their potential and fully utilizing their talents and capabilities. I am very patient and able to diagnose the needs of each student under my care. In addition to the ability to explain things clearly, I can sense the proper strategy for reaching each of my students. I have a PhD in chemistry from UC Berkeley unde [more]

As a building block on Algebra 2, and prior to Calculus, this is an important subject for students who want to pursue a career in a technology or science field. I have vast experience tutoring Algebra 2 not only because I have hundreds of hours with this subject but because of my engineering background. I have more than 15 years of experience in tutoring students of all ages and levels of education from elementary to graduate school. I am most interested in changing the way my students perceive themselves when approaching math. Throughout the years, I have had the most rewarding experience whe [more]

High school Math teacher for over 15 years Tutor Algebra 1 though 3rd year Calculus Flexible schedule. Will travel to a neutral location like Starbucks or your home. I pride myself in helping students reach proficiency in math and in learning and easily recalling what they have learned. I've taught and tutored high school math in California for 16 years, was teacher of the year and math department chair for 4 years, and spearheaded several innovative programs for multiple schools to help struggling students improve the speed and proficiency of their learning. I am an excellent tutor becau [more]

In my opinion, Pre-Calculus is the most difficult math class offered at the high school level. The trigonometry portion presents many new and difficult concepts, but the algebra portion takes everything from Algebra II deeper making everything very complex and solving problems you don't really see any reason to solve. In truth, the main objective is to solidify your Algebra skills. Most of the problems that are presented are much more easily solved in Calculus next year. I am a UCI honors graduate in mathematics with a minor in computer science. I started tutoring as a favor for a friend and [more]

Precalculus is a catchall of topics that need to be in place before going on to calculus. Included among these topics are conic sections, polar coordinates, vectors, matrices, and probability theory. I also enjoy connecting with the student to explore the concept of the limit and how it relates to the slope of a secant line. I believe students should be confident in their math skills. By getting good grades in school, their options in life (e.g. jobs, career paths) are kept open. I gauge where the student is at in knowing the concepts by having him/her work out the problems. Every problem h [more]

I taught this subject for many years and can lecture entire curriculum by memory. I know of the common mistakes students make in applying many of the concepts. I can also teach tips and tricks that will facilitate mastery of the topics. In my 15 plus years of tutoring, I've had the pleasure of working many students from all walks of life and with a wide range of abilities. My favorite part of tutoring and helping students is being there to witness their "ah ha!" moment. The moment of true and pure understanding. The revelation that it all works, so long as they apply the right tools and c [more]

Most of precalculus takes the algebra 2 topics and adds more detail. The mathematical reasoning becomes more rigorous as topics like limits and trigonometry is explored. I have helped failing students pass the class with only three or four months left of the school year and I have also aided students from the beginning of the subject to its end. I know the problem chapters and have had ample experience explaining these ideas. I have been around instructors for my entire life. My mother was a general tutor for the neighborhood and I helped her when our small apartment was stuffed with children [more]

I am an expert on pre-calculus. Pre-calclulus is harder than calculus since students have to cover broad topics from functions to trigonometry. I have worked with many students and it is one of my top requested topics. I make pre-calculus more understandable to my students since I have a good sense of what they will need in their next math course, calculus. I work with them on graphs, functions, unit circle, and trigonometric identities to make sure they have a great foundation for calculus. I am a patient and experienced tutor that is doing this job professionally. Please spend couple of min [more]

I have tutored several students in Precalculus from local high schools such as Esperanza, Troy, and Yorba Linda. The topics covered ranged from factoring, polynomial graphing, logarithms, and exponentials. I have always had a love of learning and teaching. I have worked with students for over 20 years. I started tutoring when I was in high school. I tutored fellow high school students in Math starting my junior year. When I attended Cal Poly, I tutored science and engineering students on campus. And finally, when I studied at Stanford University for graduate work I taught undergraduate [more]
