As a math major, I understand how math can, at times, be a challenging field of study. However, this is often because students are often taught the methods and techniques without being told how those methods came to be, or why they are true and work as they do. As a tutor, I intend to help students not only excel in their course, but also develop a firm conceptual understanding of the course material. This conceptual foundation will serve them well in the course and beyond as they take calculus and other such mathematics courses. [more]

I have tutored and studied, at a graduate level, a broad range of math topics focusing on calculus and statistics. I have found math tutoring to be one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Many students report that they do not like math and/or are not good at math. Many of the people I have tutored have experienced success in math for the first time and that success was all they needed to change their mind, at least somewhat, on both counts. I love math, and it is very rewarding... [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]

My love for math started since I was in elementary school. My mission is to make students excel in mathematics and enjoy it. Every student has the ability to learn mathematics however each student learn in a different way and I will make sure to use a learning method that best suits each. I have been a private tutor for math for about 7 years. I am good with children as a mom for 2 boys. I have been volunteering and running math centers for students who need extra help in Elementary s... [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]

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 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]

I have 25 plus years' experience tutoring precalculus. I know the curriculum and standards for all local schools and districts. Currently I teach precalculus at a local private school. Greetings! My name is Nick, and I have been blessed to be able to tutor math as my full time job since graduating with highest honors from the California State University. Over the past twenty years I have had successful results with over one thousand students in the Orange County area. In addition to tutoring I teach Algebra and Geometry part-time at a local school, and I am head coach of a travel baseball [more]

If there were ever a course that drives the point home that "You must learn it the hard way in order to appreciate the easy way," it'd be Pre-Calculus. The Algebra involved in Pre-Calc is incredibly daunting, and when you're first introduced to limits (most importantly, a function's behavior at infinity), it'll likely blow your mind. This course will give you a full year to refine and polish your algebra skills to prep you for calculus, and I will be an incredible help for some of the confusing functions you'll come across. I'll also be able to show you why you're learning the subject at hand [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]
