Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Geometry tutors
"...There is no better feeling (in my opinion) than achieving something you once thought was impossible or improbable, and I feel a vicarious sense of satisfaction when my students have such experiences. A thought that really inspired me both on a personal level and as a tutor was from that infamous book The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom. Although I don't agree with some parts of the author's application of the philosophy, she contends that Chinese parents strive to arm their children with a sense of self-efficacy that prepares them to accomplish whatever they choose, and points out that one cannot enjoy something if one is bad at it..."

"...I have been a tutor for many subjects dating back since before middle school. What has made me a well-received turor is my presentation of a diversity of perspectives and connections, making material intuitive as well as interesting. I can help foster a love of learning in young children and/or give a boost in test scores to help students move on into college success..."

"...I am currently working as a web developer as I pursue advanced certifications in various programming languages on my way to becoming a successful and influential software engineer. My passion for programming and computer science carries over into my personal life, and in my free time I enjoy writing my own applications as well as reading current articles on artificial intelligence programs and scientific innovation. However, having been raised in San Diego, I always make time for surfing during the summer and snowboarding during the winter. I have been a tutor on and off since I started college and have worked with a myriad of student grade levels and subjects, from 5th grade math to college chemistry..."

"My name is David and I am currently a first year master's student at the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago. Prior to attending the Harris School, I worked as a GMAT instructor at the Bluedata International Institute in Manhattan and as an SAT math instructor at the Excel Class Academy in Queens. I also have experience tutoring the GRE and the GMAT in a one-on-one setting..."

"I currently work as a math teacher in Brooklyn and would love the opportunity to work with you to help you to not only achieve your immediate goals (passing a class, test, etc), but also foster a deeper understanding of the subject matter that will help you into the future. I'm certified to teach grades 7-12 which means I possess a mastery of pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra II, pre-calculus, trigonometry, statistics and AP AB and BC Calculus. The liberal arts curriculum I took at Stanford University has ensured that I not only can tutor students in technical fields but also humanities. I'm a voracious reader, especially of historical non-fiction, so I would especially enjoy tutoring for history and English in addition to mathematics. I am a savvy test taker and would be able to teach your child not only the content necessary to excel at the SAT and other standardized tests, but also how to utilize strategies to maximize efficiency and accuracy. In teaching, I enjoy connecting the subject matter to topics that would not necessarily seem relevant to the lesson in order to engage the student on a deeper level..."

"... My undergraduate education was at Virginia Tech, where I earned a BS in Chemical Engineering and a BA in Chemistry. I specialize in the maths and sciences, drawing from real-world, practical examples to keep course lessons interesting. Through teaching undergraduates at Carnegie Mellon University, I realized that many students who find mathematical and scientific concepts difficult are actually searching for a more intuitive understanding..."

"...After finishing my undergraduate studies, I moved to Philadelphia and taught high school Physics in a public charter school for a year and earned a state certification to do so in the evenings. When that job ended, I moved to Annapolis, MD to study for a Master of Arts in the Liberal Arts at St. John’s College, where I was able to read and discuss a large swath of the books that make up our intellectual tradition..."

"... This year I was appointed Math Department Head as a result of my concern for individual student success and integrating different learning strategies into the classroom. The previous two years I facilitated learning at Ferris High School in Algebra I and II, and Geometry. I tutor current and former students in Algebra I and II, and Geometry before school. This summer tutoring outside the school I tutored a couple ESL students in exit level TAKS and College Algebra..."

"...As a section leader for a Computer Science class at the University of Arizona, I was responsible for teaching a 20 person class each week as well as grading work and helping students during office hours. I believe the most effective way to check for understanding is to ask questions, which is why my classes were filled with questions. I solve complex problems by breaking them down into small steps, which is how I teach my students to solve problems..."

"... While I apply to graduate schools and find where I want my focus in education to be I want to continue helping students learn mathematics, and the way I find works best is by tutoring. I have always loved Mathematics! I think one of the main problems in education today is the hatred that somehow is connected to math because it is hard. But I believe that while mathematics may seem difficult, it is because it is not broken down into small chunks enough. And that is where tutoring comes in! As a tutor I will try and break the art of mathematics down into small puzzles that only need brain power to fix..."
