I am an experienced tutor of high school and college students. I successfully enhance the performance of those struggling and those seeking to maximize their potential. High school students needing remedial attention, and the motivation to improve their grades in geometry, algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus and calculus classes as well as the math component of SAT, ACT or AP exams would find my thoughtfulness, creativity, kindness and nonjudgmental individualized approaches highly effective. College students completing courses in calculus, abstract algebra or other math courses, as well as the math section of the GRE or other examinations assessing quantitative aptitudes will quickly identify why professors and students alike praise the clarity and effectiveness of my instruction and tutorial style. I have with equal effectiveness addressed issues of those confronting failure and those wishing to be coached to superior academic attainment.
I recently earned an honors degree in mathematics, Phi Betta Kappa, from the University of Rochester. There, I gained over 4 years of experience tutoring students of varied ability levels, learning styles, and academic backgrounds. As a teaching assistant multiple times for upper level college math courses, I enhanced the success of mathematics majors. And, I have worked with college as well as high school students individually and in small groups in many settings.
With a deep, holistic understanding of a range of mathematical material, I clearly explain abstract concepts in a simple and understandable way. I specialize in any level of mathematics from basic algebra to calculus as well as higher-level math, such as abstract algebra, and can facilitate positive outcomes for quantitative components of the math sections of standardized tests including ACT, SAT, SAT and GRE. Tutorial efforts are not limited to those needing remedial tutoring. Supportive efforts targeting those seeking to maximize grades for advanced math courses are also within my repertoire. While proud of all personal academic, teaching and tutorial achievements, I am always most proud of student accomplishments.
Thank you for considering me as a tutor who can enhance your mathematics learning skills and yield the outcomes you so desire and deserve.
