In 7th grade, I won my first regional math competition in Algebra 1. I've tutored Algebra for nearly 10 years now and it is by far my strongest subject. If you want your student to not only improve his or her grades, but also develop the skills and tricks needed to excel in every math class he or she takes in the future, you've found the right person for the job.
Freshman year of high school was the year I first began tutoring. I was learning Algebra 2 and competing against students in the Tampa area as a Mathlete. As a result, my classmates were always asking me questions about the homework, and before long I had turned my preternatural math skills to work tutoring. I've tutored mathematics for nearly a decade, and Algebra 2 is among my favorite subjects to teach. If you are looking for a top-notch, reliable tutor who is dedicated to helping your student achieve success, look no further.
I took Calculus AB in my junior year of high school, took Calculus BC in senior year, and scored a 5 on both AP exams. For the past 5 years, I've worked with high school and college calculus students both for cram sessions the night before a test as well as once or twice weekly to stay on top of the material. If you're looking for a tutor who can help you understand what is even happening with your differential equations, look no further.
In 8th grade, I competed in several regional math competitions for Geometry, bringing home first place trophies on both the individual and team levels. Furthermore, studying philosophy in college honed my already very sharp skills working with proofs, the most dreaded part of any student's geometry class. I've tutored Geometry for 9 years now and it is easily one of my strongest subjects.
I took Physics in high school and was required to take several Physics courses when I minored in Astronomy at the University of Miami. Furthermore, I have tutored physics for nearly 5 years now and am intimately familiar with its application. Be it free-body diagrams, projectile motion, relativity, mechanical energy, optics, waves, torque, or magnets that are vexing you, I can help.
I earned my Bachelors in Mathematics from the University of Miami. I've tutored math and science for almost ten years, and helped many students succeed in trig and precalculus.
I got a 5 on my AP Statistics exam in high school and have tutored about a dozen students in both AP and college statistics classes (including stats geared towards accounting, psychology and sociology majors). If you're having trouble keeping the numbers straight, I'm the one to call.
I scored a 780 on SAT Math in my junior year of high school, and went on to work for an SAT test prep company for 3 years. This experience has led me to develop and perfect the techniques that can allow any student get a perfect 800 on the math section of the SAT.
I took the GRE prior to the change in format in 2011, scoring an 800 in the Quantitative section, 780 in Verbal Reasoning, and a 6 in Analytical Writing. I have also tutored students for the GRE after August 2011, with most students seeing improvement of 10-20 points in their scores. If you need some serious help to get into grad school, or if you just need to refresh your memory on math concepts you haven't touched since high school, look no further.
The Writing section of the SAT is the easiest of the three sections to improve, and I can help your student do exactly that. When I took the SAT in high school, I scored a 740. Since then, I worked for a test prep company specializing in the SAT for 3 years, honing my approach to all three sections of the test. I know this section inside and out, both multiple choice questions and the dreaded essay. Most of my students see upwards of 100 points of improvement on this section alone, so contact me and your student will achieve the score they need to get into the dream school they want.
If there's one thing Philosophy majors do more than any other college major, it's quickly reading large swaths of dense text and writing papers based on what they have learned. I got very good at doing exactly that in college, and I know precisely how to help your student apply these same reading strategies to the ACT. After working with ACT students at an eminent test prep company for 3 years, I've seen every difficulty under the sun a student might have with the Reading section. From misreading questions and falling for trap answers to running out of time and simply not knowing how to start the section, whatever difficulties your student has with ACT Reading, rest assured I can help them solve them.
Before striking out as an independent tutor, I worked for a test prep company for 3 years, netting me considerable experience working with students on improving their ACT scores. Most of my students see between 3-5 points of improvement in their composite scores. Lastly, when I took the ACT in high school. I achieved a composite score of 35 (English 34, Math 36, Reading 35, Science 36). Your student will be in good hands.
When I took the ACT, I achieved a perfect score of 36 in the Math section. I also work with students on all of the math subjects covered on the ACT (Algebra 1/2, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus) on a regular basis. Furthermore, most of my students see 4-6 points of improvement on the ACT Math section. Whether your student needs is having difficulty with careless mistakes, difficult questions, working through the section quickly enough, or even just eeking out the last few points towards a perfect score, I can help.
A perfect score in the Science section of the ACT is much easier to get than most students realize. The secret is that you don't actually need to know any science in the first place to score well because all the information you need to know is already given. The only thing that you really need to learn to do to get that perfect score is how to approach the questions quickly and efficiently and to practice doing exactly that. When I took the ACT, I scored a 36 on the science section, and during my 3-year tenure working for a test prep company in Miami, I honed my technique into a form that can be instilled in any student aiming to improve their ACT score. Most of my students see between 3-5 points of improvement in the science section. Make yours one of them.
When I was young, I was lucky enough to have some absolutely brilliant math teachers. Not only did they impart the knowledge I needed at the grade level I was in, but they helped me build and maintain the foundation I would need to excel in math for the rest of my academic career. I don't normally work with younger students, but therein lies the advantage to hiring a tutor of my caliber. Even if your student is struggling in school, I will get them back on track and instill in them the very same skills that were instilled in me when I was young.
I took Discrete Math during my time at UM and received an A in the course. Since then, I've tutored many students throughout the entire course, as well as on specific areas including set theory, combinatorics, logical proofs, cardinality, boolean algebra, induction and recursion, etc. A lot of students have difficulty understanding the somewhat arcane notation used, especially since the course is an introduction to higher level abstract math, but I've had much success in helping my students comprehend material and excel in their coursework.
I graduated the University of Miami with a BAC in Motion Picture Production, working on several short films and projects in the process. My main focus was in video and audio editing, but I also took courses in screenwriting, directing, and cinematography. I also worked for the Digital Media Services branch of Richter Library, assisting students working with Final Cut and Adobe Suite.
In the 3 years I spent working for a Miami test prep company, I tutored several students on the COOP, HSPT, and other tests like them in hopes of helping them get into the school of their choice. I am well-versed in the layout and content of these tests, as well as the tricks and strategies students need to employ in order to improve their scores on these tests. If you are looking for a seasoned instructor who knows these tests inside and out, look no further.
During the 3 years I spent working at a Miami test prep company, I led an annual 8-week workshop with classes of students at a Catholic girls' school preparing them to take the ISEE. I also tutored dozens of students privately on all four sections of the test, as well as the essay. Most of my students see at least 20 percentile points of improvement in each section of the test.
I earned an A in Linear Algebra when I took it in undergrad. During that time I led a study group, and I've tutored several students in the subject since. If you are struggling with matrices, vector spaces, eigenvalues, linear independence, proofs, etc. I can help!
I have won competitions for geometric proofs, I studied Philosophy at the University of Miami, earning A's in Symbolic Logic and Philosophy of Logic and Language, and when I took the LSAT and got a 173 (which is a pretty good score), Logic Games was my best section. However, even if you are just looking to improve your grades (not to become the next great professor of logic), I can help. Logic is something fundamental to anyone who wants to excel in mathematics, philosophy, or law (or anything else for that matter), and I am one of the best when it comes to teaching students how to apply it. If you keep mixing up the necessary and sufficient conditions, if truth tables have baffled you to the point of losing your mind, or if you simply can't remember all the dozens of possible justifications for your next statement (modus what?), I'm your guy.
I have a solid background in coding in Python, as well as with solving computer science problems in general. I've taught total programming beginners as well as seasoned veterans of other languages that are looking for another skill to add to their toolset. Whether you need help finding bugs or optimizing high-level abstractions, or you just want to learn how to read and write source code, Python is the perfect place to start, and I'll be happy to guide you on the way.
I took Finite Math in college a few semesters ago receiving an A in the course. Since then, I have worked with several students on all topics covered in Finite Math including sets, logic, statistics, geometry, combinatorics, and probability. I am well-equipped to help anyone master the material in this course.
