Hello students, My name is John and my curiosity is insatiable. Although I have completed a B.S. in mathematics, an M.S. in math education, and passed the national board exams for both massage therapy and civil engineering, I still endeavor to learn and grow at every opportunity. After teaching math at the university level for two years and competing on the Spartan Race Pro Team, I decided to give away all my possessions and buy a one-way ticket to Alaska. I found a bicycle in Anchorage and ... [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]

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. As a graduate with a degree in Biochemistry, I have a very strong foundation in math and science. When I took my own SAT over 10 years ago, I scored a 2220 (with an 800 on Math, 700 in Reading,...

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]

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]

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]

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]

About Me: I've always had a passion for Math and Science ever since I was in Elementary School. I love to teach and share my knowledge in those subjects with other people. I started tutoring at my local community college helping college students with their Calculus or Physics homework and test preparation. One of my colleagues introduced me to Wyzant. I have now been a Wyzant tutor for 4 years and going, and I love the service Wyzant provides in connecting students with local tutors. I approa... [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]
