As a double major in Mathematics and Physics as an undergraduate, I continued to enjoy the connections between the two fields of study I explored as a high school student. Helping students to see the beauty in nature as they solidify their understanding is a joyous experience in itself. The confidence students gain as the holes in their understanding are filled, gives students their own motivation to study the subject. Having students begin to ask their own questions due to their own curio... [more]

Algebra 1

I have taught and tutored Algebra 1. The concepts of Algebra 1 are used in the subjects I teach.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a subject I have taught and tutored. Currently, I am licensed to teach Mathematics and Physics.

Calculus

In addition to the Certification in Mathematics, I am very familiar with TI graphing calculators and how to use them. The use of the graphing calculator will help to check as well as understand the concepts being taught in Calculus.

Chemistry

A number of Chemistry courses were elected to satisfy requirements for my Physics Degree. I have tutored Chemistry various times. The overlap between Chemistry and Physics is quite large, so many of the topics have been studied in detail in both of the Chemistry and Physics courses already taken.

Geometry

Geometry is used in various courses I teach currently. The applications of geometry in physics are numerous.

Physics

I am licensed in Physics. I teach and have tutored Physics. Furthermore, Physics was one of my majors in college.

Prealgebra

Having teachers which gave me a good basis for understanding how the various math topics relate to the real world, helped me to enjoy and later pursue my degree in Mathematics. Teaching others those and other relations, as our world changes, is a joy.

Precalculus

As a currently licensed teacher of Mathematics and Physics the concepts of Pre-Calculus are applied in the courses I teach. The concepts are also applied in various others courses I have taught and tutored in.

Spanish

My family background and my studies have exposed me to various accents and cultures throughout the world. Being born in Spain, having a Colombian Mother and a Sephardic Father, while growing up in New York City, have prepared me to view and connect language, culture and people.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is used within the two Majors I have studied. I have taught it to students from the math and the physics perspectives. It is enjoyable to see and have students see the connections between trigonometry and the world.

Statistics

Probability and Statistics was one of the courses I had taken as an undergraduate student. Statistics concepts are also applied to physics situations in the more advanced courses of my Physics major.

SAT Math

I teach and have tutored students preparing for the SAT. As a double major in Mathematics and Physics I am well versed in the Math section of the SAT.

GED

As a teacher and a tutor helping students with a wide range of abilities, I have come to see student's success contribute to their confidence and thereby future successes. Having tutored for the GED exam, I am able to help you focus on the sections of interest to you.

ASVAB

Becoming familiar with the ASVAB as a student when I considered the military, opened my eyes to other areas of study one needs to know in a practical world. My enjoyment of the intermingling of the abstract with the practical helped me to delve deeper to pursue my studies in math and physics. Yet, the application of those concepts lead me help students learn about robots.

Probability

Probability is a subject that I have seen and taught from both the math and physics perspectives. Its application to quantum physics and thermal and statistical physics has one wonder about the philosophical questions of the world we live in.

ACT Math

I have taught and tutored in preparation for the ACT exam. I am well versed in the Math section due to my background. Currently, I am licensed in Mathematics.

ACT Science

The ACT Science Section has been taught to students with an approach of logical analysis to improve scores on this section of the test. My physics background has exposed me to varied fields of science which aid in answering questions from the Science ACT.

Elementary Math

Tutoring students for Elementary Math, brings me to explain the fundamental concepts essential to developing the various levels of abstraction. Making those connections earlier help to strengthen the concepts later in their studies. Seeing the various connections after procuring my degree and tutoring was enlightening.

Discrete Math

Discrete Mathematics was a required course as a Mathematics Major. The topics included in the course span a wide range of fields. Making the connections from Math, to Computer Science, and Physics made the world smaller, yet made it known that there is still much to learn.

Differential Equations

Both O.D.E. (Ordinary Differential Equations) and P.D.E. (Partial Differential Equations were required for both of my majors in Mathematics and Physics. The application of differential equations is prominent in Physics. Seeing the general view from the mathematical perspective and the application of it to situations helps to understand the topic well.

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra was part of the curriculum as a Mathematics Major. The applications in the advanced courses of both Mathematics and in my other Major of Physics are immense. Seeing it applied to many dimensions and actually visualizing it is enlightening.

Logic

As a high school student I had studied it as part of the required curriculum. I have also taught it to high school students. Logic was also part of the Discrete Mathematics course I had taken at NYU which also included boolean algebra, it is related to logic.

Regents

As a graduate of the New York School System, a former tutor in the system and teacher in the system, I have worked with the various Regents Exams as they have transformed through the years. Having been a Mathematics and Physics double major, the connections within the subjects are more apparent which I like to convey to students to have a deeper understanding of the topics.

TEAS

As a licensed Mathematics and Physics Teacher, the subjects of those components of the TEAS Exam are very familiar. Experience preparing students for the SAT and ACT also provided various encounters to understand pitfalls on the Reading and English sections of the TEAS Exam. The expanded curriculum of the Bachelor's of Science Degree obtained allowed for deeper understanding of the chemistry needed for the TEAS Exam.

Finite Math

The topics included in Finite Math are many of the topics included in Discrete Mathematics. And I have already taken the Discrete Mathematics class as an undergraduate at NYU as part of my major in Mathematics. The Finite Math applies the concepts to a variety of situations.
