When I became a college student, I was offered a position at my University's math tutoring center. Because of my previous experiences as a tutor, I was up for the new challenge. During my Sophomore year, I became a Teacher's Assistant working in classes of 25-40 students. Throughout my various experiences, I learned that I had a knack for figuring out the way people think and what methods help certain people grasp a new concept best. A problem facing many students in Math is that a majority ... [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]

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]

***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]

I tutored for more than five years from elementary math to calculus 2, including Trigonometry. I'm a graduate from Stony Brook University with a Masters in Math Education and Bachelors in Math. I love thinking of new ways to explain concepts and innovative ways to show it visually or with physical models. My goal is to really help a student understand the material, and understand what could potentially be holding him/her back from truly knowing and applying it. While I am open to all students, the best ones I've worked with and had the greatest potential to grow are those that truly d... [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]

Hi, my name is Matthew. I am a graduate of SUNY Albany with a Bachelor's in Physics and am currently working as a high school physics teacher. I'm interested in spending some of my free time doing what I love - tutoring/teaching Math and Science. I tutored for 2 years at Albany High School through the Science & Technology Entry Program (STEP). Most students required help with Algebra, Trig, and Geometry homework and other times I helped with Physics, Chemistry, and Biology as well. My experi... [more]

I am a full-time high school physics and engineering teacher, and have both taught and tutored in high school math and chemistry as well. Trigonometry can often seem like a list of abstract and incomprehensible equations to be memorized; in reality, it's based on some key spatial relations and proportions, and by focusing on those, I can help students understand the formulas that come from them. I find nothing more rewarding than helping students to deeply understand how things work and to watch them grow more and more confident in their own abilities. I am a full-time high school physics and [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]
