Award-Winning Algebra Tutors in Washington, DC
Zachary "...I completed my student teaching in the city of Pittsburgh, and am a licensed teacher in the state of Virginia, where I have been teaching for several years. While my expertise is working with K-6 students in math, reading, writing and standardized test taking, I've tutored students K-12 on algebra, geometry, English (including all AP courses) and history courses. I'm also qualified as a tutor for public speaking including composition and delivery..."

Julian "... I then Furthered my studies in EE at the University of Alabama at Huntsville (UAH) and currently perusing my Doctorate at Morgan State University (MSU). A professor once said to me, "Mathematics is the process we take to get to the solution, nothing more! A series of numbers and symbols that represent our attempt to try to understand what we do daily. Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, etc....."

Alexander "...I feel this allows the student to behave more comfortably, and in turn, get more out of the material that they are learning. This strategy has worked especially well in the Baltimore City Prison. I do recognize that each student is an individual and may have different ways of learning material..."
Lucinda "...I have a Bachelors degree in Mathematics and two Master's degrees, one in Mathematics with a concentration in Statistics and Operations Research and another in Business with an emphasis in Analytics and Decision Sciences. I attended Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, Illinois and Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond Virginia. I love to tutor Algebra 1 and 2 and also Business Calculus and Statistics..."
Crystal "...I like taking topics which may seem rather difficult to students and break them down, making it easier to understand. I know how difficult it can be to understand certain concepts. I find joy in helping individuals learn because I know how difficult it can be to find help when you need it. I work with all the latest technology stuff..."

Gloria "...I love helping others learn and enjoy math at their pace, using whatever methods that most suit them. I try to incorporate my counseling psychology background to foster the most optimal environment for growth. It's more important that you "get it" conceptually than memorizing formulas. I have experience in tutoring math (ranging from elementary math up to the GRE Quantitative section), as well as ESL during my year in Seoul, South Korea. In the free time that I have, I love running, riding my bike, exploring different food finds, and catching up with friends..."
William "... It was great to see how my students could eventually come around to seeing standardized tests as a puzzle, rather than a chore. I've since spent several semesters as an Introductory Chemistry TA during my undergrad at Amherst College, where I majored in Biochemistry and Biophysics, magna cum laude. I'm also pre-med; I'm applying to medical schools now, for matriculation in the fall of 2014..."
Padraic "...I like to adjust my tutoring style to whatever the student knows works best for them, and throughout my experience I have noticed that most students share my passion for an example-based approach. I believe the best way to teach all different types and difficulties of math is through examples, where students can see the exact types of problems they will be tested on and learn how to solve them step by step. Outside of academics, I love sports and outdoor activities, especially basketball and running..."
