Award-Winning ACT Math Tutors in Washington, DC
Bernard "...I watched as math transformed from an intimidating obstacle into a tool for their minds. Since then I've tutored dozens of students in everything from elementary school math to algebra and trigonometry and also college level courses like Calculus and Statistics. Additionally, I taught Algebra I &II full-time in the classroom. Just as my teacher predicted, instruction came naturally for me. I like to take the creative and fun approach I have with music and use it as a tool to share my passion for mathematics while also helping students see its usefulness in so many career paths and life situations..."

Laura "...I have since taken my own personal experiences as a student and improved my own teaching style. I find that students are able to easily relate to me, because of my age and approachability.

Adrien "...My top priority is to understand your strengths, limitations, and goals as a student and to create lesson plans that work for you. Having worked with students from ages 5 to 55, across disciplines and in different languages, I know how important it is to cater to your individual needs. I focus on guiding and facilitating—not dominating—the learning process, and will encourage you to take risks, work through mistakes, and ask questions along the way. I believe that you will rise to a challenge if given the opportunity to do so, and I will make sure that our tutoring sessions are rigorous and rewarding so that you will come to a new level of understanding of the subject at hand. I am certified to tutor for test prep, writing, Spanish, college prep and essays, and general study skills and organization..."
