I tutor Algebra 1 the most. It is the foundation for all complex mathematics. Mastery in Algebra 1 is the stepping stone for developing a love for mathematics; with confidence and courage, anyone can develop a solid foundation in Algebra 1. Even if you don't like Algebra, but, need to succeed in math to meet your educational goals, I've developed a systematic approach to learning and mastering this subject.
I have two years of teaching experience in Algebra 2. It is a challenge for many students to master it. I always tell my students, that, "Algebra 2 is like walking through a mine field; in order for you to make it to the other side, you must follow the footsteps of the someone who made it." I can help you get to the other side and we can celebrate our success together! Even if you don't like Algebra, but need to succeed in math to meet your educational goals, I've developed a systematic approach to learning and mastering this subject.
Biology is an exciting subject. It is a foundational class for all biological science classes: botany, zoology, anatomy, physiology, molecular biology, embryology, comparative anatomy, microbiology, virology, and cell biology. Biology require you to memorize high volumes of information in a short period of time. I have a system to help you learn high volumes of information and succeed in taking tests on our first tutoring session. Contact me.
I've taught and tutored Prealgebra to homeschoolers for one year. During my experience, I've learned to instruct and explain using puzzles, games & fun analogies to explain the concepts of fractions, integers, negative numbers, and such. I make it fun and inspire anyone to develop a love for learning Prealgebra.
The key to success in the math portion of SAT is knowledge and effectively preparing for the standardized multiple choice tests. Having successfully earning A's in all my math classes from middle school to high school and earning A's in Calculus 1, 2, & 3, Advanced Calculus, and Differential Equations 1 & 2, I have the knowledge. Scoring in the 96th percentile on the math portion of the SAT, I can help you. Also, I've developed a system in successfully passing any standardized tests, especially SAT math.
The key to success in the math portion of ACT is knowledge and proper preparation. Having successfully earning A's in all my math classes from middle school to high school and earning A's in Calculus 1, 2, & 3, Advanced Calculus, and Differential Equations 1 & 2, I have the knowledge. Scoring in the 94th percentile on the math portion of the ACT, I can help you. I have a system in successfully passing any standardized tests, such as ACT math.
During the Summer of 2010, I personally tutored a college student who was taking Organic Chemistry 1 & 2, both for the second time. She had an ADHD, in which her attention span was no more than 15 minutes. She utilized her Blackberry in class, sending texts or internet surfing, as a coping mechanism to withstand the 2-hour lecture, 4 days a week. It was a torture for her but desire to attend Optometry School was stronger than her current situation. Therefore I developed a 15-minutes On & 5-minute Off tutoring session. During her 5-minute break she texted. She earned As in both classes and informed me that she never earned a grade higher than a B in any of her Chemistry classes, let alone Organic Chemistry. If your desire is strong enough, then the facts don't count!
