Dear all, I am a retired high school math teacher with over 29 years of experience. I am also an adjunct lecturer of mathematics at Hofstra University and Touro college. I am able to tutor math from 9th grade algebra thru college calculus and statistics. I enjoy helping students, my rates a rather reasonable compared to my extensive experience and varied background. I can travel within 15 miles of N.Y.C. should this be required. I am patient and dedicated towards my students.... [more]

I help develop self confidence and test-taking skills. My tutoring approach is based on working with a student to determine his or her strengths and then figuring out how to build upon that student's confidence with the subject matter. I think utilizing analogies can be a powerful tool to make the learning process more personal. My background and qualification cover a wide array of subjects; which I believe is helpful to finding such strengths in others. I can help students even when they ... [more]

***My Experience*** In my 10+ years as an educator and tutor I've worked one-on-one with dozens of students on test prep (SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE, PSAT, GRE, GMAT, and Regents), academic subject support (math, physics, chemistry, and Spanish), writing, and college application coaching. My students range in age from 10 to 50 and come from diverse educational backgrounds. I graduated magna cum laude in English from Harvard University, and I have a master's degree from Columbia University, wher... [more]

The trigonometry of the right triangle is introduced, including the basic functions sine, cosine and tangent and their cofunctions. Radian measure of angles is presented, and the trigonometric functions are defined for arbitrary angles. The trigonometric functions are graphed, with a discussion of their amplitude, period and phase shift. Inverse trigonometric functions are introduced. The laws of cosine and sine are proved and applied to solving triangles. Basic trigonometric identities are proved, including half angle and double angle identities. [more]

Trigonometry is unfortunately one of those subjects that trips up many students and steers them away from math as it puts up a seemingly insurmountable barrier. Who cares about a cosine anyway? The truth is there are simple ways to visualize trigonometry that are extremely effective and the concepts contained behind all the math terms are critically important for understanding spatial relationships, angles, and periodic motion. Hello, Thanks for taking a look at my profile! Please review my subject qualifications, student feedback, and detailed description below. Please send me a message if y [more]

I'm a recent graduate from The Cooper Union with a Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering. As an engineering student, I regularly used the principles of Trigonometry in a variety of core science classes, including: Calculus, Differential Equations and Physics. Furthermore, the underlying principles of Trigonometry have presented themselves in numerous advanced Chemical Engineering courses, like Transport Pheonomena and Control Systems. I received very high marks in these classes and would be well-equipped to teach them to students studying Trigonometry. [more]

Hello students and parents, My name is Justin, and I am a software engineer at Google in NYC. In my spare time, I do private tutoring with a specialization in math, computer science, and SAT/ACT prep. I enjoy working with students and sharing my passion for math & CS. It is always my goal to not only help students understand the concepts, but also to make things fun by explaining real life applications. I received a Master's degree in Computer Science from Drexel University, where I also wo... [more]

The keys to success in trigonometry are a strong grasp of 3-4 basic concepts (such as the unit circle, the concept of inverse functions, periodicity, and the pythagorean identity) and learning how to apply them to various situations. Too often students struggle with trigonometry because of the sheer number of different formulas and identities involved; under my tutelage, students learn how to generate and derive knowledge rather than simply memorizing and regurgitating it. I show them effective and reliable substitutions and content-based strategies to enable them to solve trigonometry problem [more]

I am a professional tutor specializing in test preparation aimed at achieving elite scores. I scored a 2400 on the SAT and in the 99th percentile on the LSAT, and have successfully taught SAT and LSAT prep for Kaplan and The Princeton Review. I love teaching and the tremendous rewards of helping my students gain confidence and enthusiasm, break through blocks, and earn fantastic scores and grades. I graduated from Yale and Columbia Law School with highest honors, and am an alum of Hunter Col... [more]

If you're looking for somebody to either help you catch up in math, or get ahead in math, I'm your guy. I was a math major at Washington University in St. Louis, and minored in German, economics, and writing. While there, I tutored students in everything from counting to calculus, and beyond. I then earned a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Bard College in '07. I've been tutoring for 12+ years, and full-time for 9+. I've had students between the ages of 6 and 66, with a focus on high sch... [more]
