I've been teaching and tutoring math for the past eight years, first in New York, and now here in California. I graduated from Columbia University with a bachelor's degree in English, but then became a math teacher, earning a Master's degree in Math Education. I am very well-rounded as a tutor; I can help any middle school, high school, or college student with their homework and test scores in most subjects. However, my areas of specialty are math, writing, and Spanish. I have tutored stude... [more]

Algebra 1

I have eight years of experience teaching Algebra 1 as a classroom teacher as well as a private tutor. I have a masters degree in math education and have worked with students with all levels of confidence and experience in mathematics. My patience, clarity, and friendly approach will help students achieve success in this foundational course.

Algebra 2

In addition to tutoring Algebra 2 for over ten years, I was an Algebra 2 classroom teacher for four years. I have taught Algebra 2 to students with a wide range of skills and confidence in math, including students with IEPs, honors students, and English Language Learners. I have a proven track record of helping students find success in Algebra 2.

Study Skills

I taught study skills for four years to high school students. I was the coordinator and primary teacher of a college preparation program that emphasized organization and study skills. I have a variety of strategies for organizing students' note-taking, writing, ready, and studying for tests.

Regents

I taught math in New York City for five years, covering such subjects as integrated algebra, geometry, and algebra 2/trigonometry. I have also graded all of these exams and know what correct answers look like and how to maximize students scores. In addition to the math exams listed above, I have tutored students for Regents exams in the following subjects: US history, global history, ELA, Earth science, living environment (biology), and physics. I have access to many practice questions as well as an archive of previous test questions so that students have an idea of what they can expect on the Regents exams. I would use those questions as the basis of my tutoring, since this is a "teach to the test" scenario.
