Algebra 1

My qualifications include perfect SAT scores, and perfect SAT II math scores. I have excelled in all my math courses (from elementary math to Multivariate Calculus), which include all the standard Algebra classes at both the high school and college level. Additionally, I have been tutoring for more than 10 years. I have a gift for understanding a student's thinking and helping him or her to truly understand math in a way that far exceeds simple formula memorization.


Algebra 2

In addition to perfect SAT scores and perfect SAT II math scores, I have more than 10 years of math tutoring experience. I'm easy going and positive, good at understanding a student's thinking, and most importantly, gifted at helping students truly understand math in a way that far exceeds simple formula memorization. I have an excellent track record of student improvement and genuinely enjoy helping students reach their goals.


Calculus

Having tutored Calculus students for over 10 years with great success, I am well qualified to teach or tutor the material. I have helped many students go from failing to excelling in their Calculus classes, and seen most of them receive 4s and 5s on their AP tests. I am still pursuing my first Bachelor's but have taken all standard math classes up through Calculus III (Vector Calculus) and several other odds and ends such as Discrete Math and Linear.
