I am a credentialed math teacher through a middle level program which means I am qualified to teach K-12 math with an emphasis in grades 6-8. I come from an extremely math-rich background and have worked with all kinds of students, teaching everything from basic algebra to calculus, with age ranges from 6th to 12th grade. I also teach SAT prep, critical thinking and analysis strategies.
As a math tutor of several years I have taught pre-calculus and calculus to a variety of students from diverse backgrounds. I help my students to succeed by teaching them critical learning strategies such as how to think logically about the concepts and scenarios being presented. As these skills are acquired classroom learning becomes streamlined into an organic process, decreasing frustration and often increasing grades across curriculum.
I have been a professional math tutor for several years and have helped several students meet their SAT goals for college entrance. Along with improved math skills, I teach critical thinking and test-taking strategies which help students conserve time and ensure the students answer as many questions correctly as possible during the time allotted. I am very good at what I do, and I look forward to working with your son.
