My tutoring approach is unique in that I really try to make sure students understand why everything is as it is, rather than just encourage rote learning. I never give up on my students. Provided you are patient with me, I promise that you will leave any session with me with 101% educationally sound conclusion! I invest a lot of effort into making sure concepts are thoroughly understood, and pay less attention to monetary rewards. Where time allows, I always have extra work for my student to ... [more]


Algebra 1

Core to the foundational building blocks of a solid mathematics education, Algebra one is one of the most vital areas of math that I have been privileged to instruct in. Over 7years with of students has taught me patients in my approaches and imaginative exemplification. Study of polynomials and transversal functions sowed the seeds to great personal success and that of my students in later courses such as linear and abstract modern Algebra.


Algebra 2

My qualifications from Algebra 2 stem from a graduate level education and academic research in Abstract and advanced linear algebra. In addition I have taught this class at both the highschool and college levels .. My most recent student scored in the 95 percentile on standardized test! I am fully committed to helping my students understand and am passionate about Algebra


Calculus

Having taught and tutored students of calculus, at highschool and college levels, since 2009, I have honed thorough experience in this subject. I have studied Calculus and Real Analysis up to the graduate level, including but not limited to topics such as; differential equations, multivariate calculus, sequences and series, Analytical geometry, and applications. I have also written research papers that apply intricate calculus. Indeed this is one of my favorite subjects to tutor.


Microsoft Excel

My Experience with Microsoft Excel in particular and Spreadsheets in general began two two decades ago with "Lotus 1-2-3" Over the years I have worked in highly analytical roles including those of Financial Analyst, Actuarial and Statistician. The most complex features of excel that I know include Visual Basic for Applications Programming (VBA) macros, and user defined functions and custom addins such as solver and Go seeker. Of course I am highly well acquainted with all kinds of shortcut commands and spreadsheet formatting as well
