Experienced Math Tutor with A.S. Applied Math/ B.A. Pure Mathematics

Hi everyone, I just graduated from University of California Santa Cruz with a B.A. in Pure Mathematics! I also achieved an A.S.- T in Applied Mathematics from my former junior college 2015. To add, I am also the former president and founder of my college Mathematics Club. I have 9 years of tutoring experience. Some new news: I'll be studying AP Calculus rigorously until mastered for any of you who need it. Some more about my tutoring style: I have passion for math and tutoring, and I help... [more]


Algebra 1

My major is Mathematics. I have taken College Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus I & II, which are advanced Math courses. Algebra I is the foundation for Mathematical success and Calculus. I make sure my students review and master the concepts every lesson. I have tutored over 40+ students in Algebra I with great results. I can help you build up your problem solving skills and your confidence.


Algebra 2

I am a college student majoring in Mathematics. During the last 5 years I have tutored many students in Algebra 2. Algebra 2 is a little more advanced than Algebra 1 because Algebra 2 introduces many new Mathematical operations seen in future upper division Math Classes. I have tutored over 50+ students for Algebra 2 and have created amazing formula sheets with notes from my experiences to help my student's success. I can help you understand the concepts and become good at problem solving.


Calculus

I am a college student majoring in Math. I have experience tutoring my classmates, A.P. Calculus, and Calculus 2. I LOVE CALCULUS 1! It is my favorite Math subject to tutor. I love showing tricks and shortcuts as well as explaining why the Calculus is important for Student/Career success. For beginners, Calculus can be an unpleasant suprise, but with me, Calculus will be a great experience! They say Calculus is the back bone of Physics, and once you understand Calculus, you will fall in love with Math. I can help you become better at Calculus.


Geometry

I have tutored students in Geometry for 3 years. I have taken Trigonometry and Calculus that require a good knowledge of Geometry and I did very well. I can help high school students and college students with Geometry. I am good not only in problems that require calculations but also in doing proofs.


Prealgebra

I am a college student majoring in Mathematics. I have over 5 years of experience tutoring students in Prealgebra. Prealgebra is a perfect opportunity to master fractions and algebraic operations that will give you experience to move forward and on to higher Math classes. I will help you build a strong foundation in Prealgebra so you can understand the concepts and learn how to solve problems on your own.


Precalculus

I am good at Precalculus. I know what a student needs to learn to be successful not only in precalculus but also in calculus. I will help you do well in Precalculus so you can have a good mathematical foundation when you take Calculus. I have tutored 20+ college students and 20+ highschoolers in precalculus and they all did a great job.


Trigonometry

I am a college student majoring in mathematics. I LOVE TRIGONOMETRY second to calculus. I have tutored 40+ students in trigonometry. I even tutored an electrical engineer who was forced to take a computer test for his job, after 30 years. He had forgotten some of the math, and requested my help immediately. His subject material was trigonometry mixed with Periodic Waves and Phasor Analysis pertaining to electricity. I actually rejected his request at the time, since I had never tutored trigonometry before, but he said that he had six tutors before me and none of them could handle the new material and that he needed my help. So I agreed to give it a shot, and after one month together, he achieved a 98% and kept his job. He was the first trigonometry student I ever had, and I had to apply my skills to figure out trigonometric applications pertaining to real life using trigonometry with electricity! I will never forget the great feeling I felt when he called me and told me he passed his test and was able to keep his job. That was the day when I found my passion for tutoring mathematics. I can help you succeed in trigonometry.


SAT Math

As an experienced mathematics Tutor, I know the struggle of SAT Math. The word to describe SAT math is "tricky." When I first began studying SAT math, I was getting stuck on almost every problem and was only able to achieve around 5-600 on the scale score range. But I kept studying it, going over problems, taking practice SAT tests from books and online, and I now score 750-800. I must have put in 300+ hours of studying just so I could tutor efficiently and correctly for the student(s). I am highly confident in SAT math, and I understand the importance of a high test score to get into the college of your choice. I can help you prepare for the SAT College Admittance Examination.


GRE

I am a Mathematics major currently achieving my B.S. in Mathematics. I have tutored 10 students for the GRE and have found this is a very enjoyable test to study for. My students actually perfect their mathematics skills when studying the material for the GRE since the GRE brings back a lot of algebra and basic math into the session. I can help you master the GRE.


GED

I tutored a friend for a full year taking the GED program at College of the Canyons. I did every single Math problem with her, and a lot of the English portion of the GED. She achieved her GED and it was a great feeling for both of us. My experience; as a result, of tutoring her for the GED left me very confident and capable of tutoring the next. I even took some practice tests to make sure I am well qualified, and passed them all.


GMAT

I find the GMAT Math to be the most exciting Test Preparation because it is so difficult when it comes to the Integrated Reasoning. I like the challenge of using every skill I have to figure out the problems. Since 2014 I have studied many books for the GMAT Mathematics and I have learned many concepts that have made me a more well rounded Mathematician. I am proud to say that the experience from studying GMAT Math and the upper level math skills I already possessed made me start to perfect my skills for GMAT Math. To conclude, I have now tutored 8+ students in GMAT since 2014 and have taken many online practice exams where I have achieved 100% endlessly. I am pleased to finally say that I am most likely your number one best choice for a GMAT Tutor. I believe I can help you pass the GMAT.


ASVAB

I studied the ASVAB back when I was in high school. I was looking into branches of intelligence & defense for our country. I mastered many books and helped my friends study for the ASVAB. My friends depended on me for teaching them mathematics. One went to the United States Military Academy at West Point and one went into the army to fight in Afghanistan through high test scores on the ASVAB. I on the other hand, decided that college was the route for me. Since then I have tutored 4 people in the ASVAB all that chose the CAT-ASVAB (computer adaptive testing). They picked their careers of choice through high ASVAB scores and still to this day tell me they wouldn't be in the career field they are today without my help. I can help you prepare for the ASVAB.


ACT Math

I am a mathematics major with much experience in studying for the ACT/SAT examinations. I noticed that the ACT is more of an introduction based on preparing for the SAT. The ACT is very fast paced, 60 questions in 60 minutes for the mathematics portion. It contains elementary algebra, intermediate algebra, coordinate geometry, plane geometry, and trigonometry, which are all subjects I am an expert on. I am very confident in ACT math, and I strongly believe students should study the ACT first to prepare for the SAT. Whatever you may choose, I can help you prepare for the ACT College Admittance Examination.


Elementary Math

I am a college student majoring in Math. I have tutored many students in Elementary Math during the last 5 years. This is the most commonly used Math of people's everyday lives and is important to learn correctly to be efficient in life and for future Mathematical expeditions. I can help you build a solid foundation especially with fractions and percents. I can help you understand the concepts and become an expert in problem solving.


Discrete Math

During my time at University of California Santa Cruz I took Number Theory Math 110 and Graph Theory Math 115 because I was minoring in Theoretical Computer Science and these were perfect electives to satisfy the required courses to complete the Pure Math track. A huge part of the number theory course is modulo arithmetic, which is one of the foundations of discrete mathematics and another was Graph Theory which entailed matrix theory and many proofs involving trees. I also tutored many peers in my class and made friends in the Computer Science department that were taking the actual class called "Discrete Mathematics." I had them sit with me in the library while I worked on my own math homework and when they were stuck they would ask me for help. To their surprise, I would stop what I am doing, look at their papers, quickly write out the problems and solve them. It turned into such a big study group we ended up booking large rooms in the libraries and I had to use chalk boards and white boards to explain the material and it felt like I was tutoring the whole discrete math course at the university! Modulo arithmetic, set theory, relations and functions, sequences and series, and graph theory to name a few are my experiences not only tutoring discrete math but taught on a daily basis with my other students currently. I believe I am the best fit for Discrete Mathematics because I know how to do proofs and I have taken courses pertaining to specific subjects that are gone over in Discrete Mathematics.


Greek

I am of Greek ethnicity and have been speaking Greek ever since I was a child. I travel to Greece almost every year so I'm in tune with all the current slang and lingo of the Greek modern language. I have also attended L.A. St. Sophia Church Greek School program where I learned to read and write in Greek and perfect my speaking skills. I taught many non-Greeks while I was there and was able to formulate a great and effective teaching style.


CBEST

My major is Mathematics. I was asked if I can do the Mathematics for the CBEST, so I went through 2 books, and online practice tests and passed them all. I tutored 3 aspiring teachers who all passed the test. It is comprised of 50 multiple choice questions for Math, 50 multiple choice for reading, and two small Essays. I have taken 3 upper level English classes when I was achieving my A.S. in human resources management. I have gone through CBEST books thoroughly so I can easily guide my lessons smoothly. I can help you pass the CBEST Examination.


ISEE

I have tutored many students for the ISEE and they all passed easily. In addition to tutoring students I have also taken online practice exams and scored perfect 100% many times just to see where my level is at. To me, ISEE is the more difficult of the math type tests offered and runs along side SAT Math in format. I feel I am the most well rounded tutor for ISEE because not only do I tutor ISEE Math, but I also tutor CAHSEE, CHSPE, SAT Math, PSAT Math, PRAXIS, GRE Math, GED Math, ASVAB, and Finite Mathematics. This is on top of my normal Calculus and University level math I also tutor. My level of experience, inspiring personality, and high level skills in proofs, problem solving, and arithmetic evaluation make me the most well rounded tutor you may find. I believe I can help you reach your goal for the ISEE.


Linear Algebra

I just completed Elementary Linear Algebra at my college. I tutored 3 classmates, and held study groups where I led the group using the marker board. I achieved an A in the class. What my class covered was Matrices, Determinants, Euclidean Vector Spaces, General Vector Spaces, Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors, Inner Product Spaces, Diagonalization, General Linear Transformations, and proofs... I can help you learn and understand Linear Algebra.


Logic

I took Philosophy of Logic at two different community colleges where I achieved the highest score on all the exams in both classes! I ended up tutoring some friends in both classes and really mastered proofs. I think that is when I fell in love with proofs, and then later I went to University of California Santa Cruz where I took a class called, "Introduction to Proofs and Problem Solving," where I saw nothing but truth tables, Demorgans laws, etc... I can do the truth tables the tedious long way and the shortcut way and I love solving really tough logical proofs. Since I have a B.A. in Pure Mathematics, I am living proof that I know Logic! I believe I can help you achieve your Logic goals!


Praxis

I have tutored 7 people for the Praxis Examination and they all passed effortlessly. The mathematics used in the Praxis are similar to my expertise and daily tutoring in mathematics such as: operations & numbers, algebra, geometry, probability & data analysis. I can help you pass the Praxis Examination.


TEAS

I am very experienced in TEAS Mathematics. I have been tutoring TEAS Math since 2013, and since then have had over 45+ students. All of my students passed and thus I have a 100% success record. Moreover I used to want to be a nurse and have taken the courses and tests associated with TEAS so I am well rounded. I can help you achieve your goals for the TEAS Examination.


Finite Math

I have tutored all the corresponding Math subjects involved with Finite Math over a period of time. For example, probability from my Basic Math and Algebra Student's textbooks. My experience level in Finite Mathematics is very comfortable. Moreover, I took 3 different practice tests pertaining strictly to Finite Mathematics and passed them all. I enjoy tutoring all the subjects related to Finite Mathematics, as Finite Math has all the Math subjects needed to be successful in life and in other Math classes.


Common Core

I am super experienced in Common Core Mathematics. Not only do I tutor SAT Math, ISEE, CAHSEE, CHSPE, etc... But I also tutor Basic math all the way to A.P Calculus. I have tutored over 35+ students in Common Core and all did extremely well in in their pursuits. Whether it is testing or more experience in Common Core Mathematics, I can help you achieve your goals.


Accuplacer

For the Accuplacer I am convinced that I am the most well rounded tutor you will find. I have tutored numerous students for the Accuplacer and I have taken online practice exams and achieved 100% on all of them. Moreover, I tutor daily SAT Math, CHSPE, PSAT Math, GED Math, GRE Math, PRAXIS, CAHSEE, and ASVAB which all contain if not the same very similar mathematics and this is on top of the Elementary Math- A.P. Calculus/ University level Math I also tutor frequently. I know the Accuplacer Math very well and I am certain with me to guide you I can help you achieve your goals.
