***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]

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]

When I first started my college journey, I hadn't a clue about what I wanted to do. Over the years, I've narrowed it down to two things: I love working with people, and I love helping them learn. I've spent years working for other tutoring/test prep companies and have decided to venture out on my own. I've run the gamut of tutoring experiences, everything from helping students understand algebraic concepts to preparing for the AP Calc test. I currently work as a Physical Therapist Assistant, ...

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 continuously tutor my students through the school year and I have successfully prepared more than ten students for Regents. I have tutored and prepared students for Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Trig, Geometry, Physics, Biology, Earth and Space Science Regents. Every one of my students have passed their Regents, often with honors. I had one student that had previously failed a Regents exam and with my help, he passed his next retest. I have a strong, proven track record of successful preparation of Regents. [more]

Hi, my name is Wesley. Having attended both Stuyvesant High School and MIT, I am available to tutor in a variety of math subjects as well as standardized test preparation (see below for list). I have more than 8 years of teaching experience, being a volunteer teacher at the Salvation Army, SCORE! coach, SAT tutor at AIM Academy, and private tutoring with middle school, high school, college, and adult students. Math has always been my passion, and I tailor my teaching methods to best match e... [more]

I am certified to teach math K-12. In trigonometry, the goal is to draw on what the student knows from algebra and geometry. It is important to bridge all gaps in the knowledge and introduce higher level concepts after that. Since trigonometry is also essential for standardized tests, students also simultaneously prepare for college entrance exams. I believe that every student is capable of learning. My goal is to allow them to reach their maximum potential by getting them interested in the subject, making them think, and teaching them in the style most comfortable for them. Some people are vi [more]

Trigonometry is all about triangles, that's why I love it! The difficulty lies in the fact that there is so much rote memorization early on with the different trig functions, their graphs, working with degrees or radians as well as all the different angle values. It is formula heavy and requires more memorization than the previous year of Algebra 2. I am a certified math teacher that LOVES math! My goal is to pass this love of math around to students thru remediation, coaching, homework help or anything else that may fit your child's mathematical needs. Over the past ten years I have worked [more]

Basic trig comes down to only a few dozen skills. As with everything else I have taught, my students learn fast - because I break everything down and make it clear: 'If you see THIS, do THAT and then THAT...' If you can make an omelette, you can learn trig. Dear Student, To help you succeed is my mission. We launch right into tackling one skill at a time and breaking it down so that it's manageable. And when you get it, you feel instantly picked up: "Competence breeds confidence." Then we review, and if needed, I show you ways to remember the material, and then you practice after the sessi [more]
