I have over 15 years of teaching and tutoring experience in mathematics, computer programming, statistics, physics, and other subjects, where the main difficulty and emphasis stem from the mathematics involved. My students range form grade 5 all the way to graduate students and some of them were regulars throughout their high school and college years. I am flexible on meeting times and tutoring regime - some students look only for intensive tutoring the week before a major test, others pre... [more]

Algebra 1

With experience built over years of practice and tutoring the mathematical skills covered in the Algebra 1 classes, I teach my tutee by gentle yet focused practicing of the required skills which gradually builds their confidence to a level where basic algebra is no longer a challenge.

Algebra 2

Through many years of studying and tutoring Algebra, both basic and more advanced, I have reached a level of comfort with the material comparable to that of a native speaker using her/his mother tongue. That fluency allows me to fully concentrate on conveying the mathematical knowledge in the most direct and simplest possible way in contrast to the formally correct but unnecessarily convoluted paths taken by many authors of textbooks and solution manuals.

Calculus

I have over 15 years of teaching experience covering all undergraduate mathematics classes offered at the University of South Carolina. Those include Basic College Mathematics, Precalculus, Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus for Social Sciences and Business Administration, Finite Mathematics, Vector Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra. In that role I have been exposed first-hand to the common difficulties and typical mistakes that students tend to make in those classes. Over the years I have experimented with different teaching and tutoring techniques and now I am in the position to offer the best approach to the students I tutor.

Geometry

Through many years of studying and tutoring Geometry, I have reached a level of comfort with the material comparable to that of a native speaker using her/his mother tongue.

Physics

I have successfully tutored physics on high school and undergraduate level. I can teach you in a simple and clear way how to understand a problem, transform the given information into mathematical equations and solve them to obtain the desired answer. Typically, the main difficulty in those problems stems from the mathematics that you need to use. Sometimes this is knowledge you already acquired in a math class but never used in physics setting, other times it is new material that has never been covered in another class. In either case, I can build on your existing math skills and supplement them as needed with new techniques to make you comfortable with the physics problems at hand.

Prealgebra

After many years of practicing and tutoring my fluency in Prealgebra is at the level of second nature. This allows me to fully concentrate on conveying the mathematical knowledge in the most direct and simplest possible way to the greatest benefit of my tutees.

Statistics

As part of my higher education, graduate and undergraduate, I have taken several courses in probability and statistics, biostatistics, and econometrics, all of them building specific techniques based on hypothesis testing and probability distributions. That knowledge allowed my to successfully pass five actuarial courses and tutor a number of high school and college students on those subjects.

SAT Math

Through many years of studying and tutoring mathematics, I have reached a level of comfort with the material comparable to that of a native speaker using her/his mother tongue. That fluency allows me to fully concentrate on conveying the mathematical knowledge in the most direct and simplest possible way in contrast to the formally correct but unnecessarily convoluted paths taken by many authors of textbooks and solution manuals. Recently, I have tutored a number of students to prepare them for the math sections of SAT Math and other standardized tests.

GRE

Before going to graduate school, I myself passed the general and math subject GRE exams with perfect math scores. Recently, I have tutored a number of students to prepare them for the math sections of ACT Math, SAT Math, GRE, and GMAT.

GMAT

Before going to graduate school, I myself passed the general and math subject GRE exams with perfect math scores after solving dozens of sample exams. Recently, I have tutored a number of students to prepare them for the math sections of GMAT and GRE.

Probability

As part of my higher education, graduate and undergraduate, I have taken several courses in probability and other related disciplines such as statistics, biostatistics, and econometrics. In those classes I built and practiced the prevalent techniques based on hypothesis testing and probability distributions. That knowledge allowed my to successfully pass five actuarial courses and tutor a number of high school and college students on those subjects.
