It may seem strange to begin with a statistic, but I trust you will agree it's not wholly inappropriate. During the 2009-2010 school year, my 11 AP Chemistry students had a 100% pass rate with the following score distribution: Seven of them scored a 5, three scored a 4, and one scored a 3. The high scores are greater than three times the national average. What makes this even more impressive is that I only saw my students an average of 2.5 times per week (2 days one week, 3 days the next, alt... [more]

I taught trigonometry/precalculus classes for many years in Los Angeles Unified. I like to teach trigonometry visually, using triangles and the unit circle.

I have a PhD in Biophysics, an MS in Physics, and BAs in Physics and Humanities. I've been tutoring high school, college, and graduate students for 23 years in various levels of math. I like to help students move from "Math Anxiety," to "It's only math!" I remember what it was like to struggle with science and math subjects, and I hope to remove the anxiety and frustration from these topics. I think all students can understand these topics... IF they have someone who will teach them the way they learn best. Not all students learn or are motivated the same way, and I adapt my approach for each [more]

I took honors Trigonometry in high school finishing with an "A" in the course. My love for all things triangles definitely gets passed down to my students. As you can see in my reviews, I make sin, cos, and tan fun and interesting and my students love sharing in that. Ah Mathematics. The bane of existence for many a child. The mighty struggle of all struggles. Math can be confusing, confounding, careless, and cruel. It can make you want to grab your hair and tear it out. It can make you want to toss your textbook across the room and swear off math forever. Math can be relentless and unforgivin [more]

I have been teaching students from elementary school through adulthood since I was twelve years old. My mother, a teacher herself, showed me that students learn best when they are active participants in every stage of the learning process. Thus, I focus on understanding each student's educational background and learning style, so as to break each task into pieces that are easy for them to engage. I am energized by the tutoring process, and take great joy in seeing my students succeed. I am... [more]
