Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Math tutors
" I have tutored students ranging from middle school to college. Most of my students show dramatic improvements in their grades and test scores after receiving my help. I like to tailor my teaching style to the individual student because I know that everyone has a different learning personality. I get to know my students, discover the reasons they struggle."

"I very much enjoy my tutoring positions and have found them to be rewarding, both for me and for my students. The majority of my clients come to me for ACT test prep, but I have tutored many other subjects, ranging from elementary language arts and SSAT/ISEE prep to Algebra II/Trigonometry and college writing. My goal is to teach my students the strategies, skills, and information necessary to succeed in their classes or on standardized tests. In addition, I strive to foster their independence and increase their self-confidence. I have a love of learning, and I hope to instill that in my students. In my free time, I enjoy going to live ...

"It is because of a few good teachers that I am where I am today. As a graduate student at the U of A, I have taught a number of different chemistry labs ranging from general chemistry to senior level physical chemistry. I put a lot of work into my teaching because I believe that a good teacher makes a huge difference in how people learn. I try to approach problems from many different angles because everyone learns and retains information a little differently."

"I was also an assistant teacher for calculus, college algebra, and various other college-level math courses. I love math, but I also realize that not every student feels the same way I do. My goal as a teacher is to make learning math and statistics as painless as possible!."

"I've worked with 3rd graders, college juniors, and everywhere in between; so, I've learned to tailor my tutoring approach to each individual student and their particular learning style. For fun, I love hanging out with friends, watching movies, and playing any and every sport. I'm particularly passionate about baseball, and I've played competitively from kindergarten through high school."

"I understand that everyone's brain works differently and that school is easy only for those whose way of thinking matches the style of teaching. I try to get the student to understand the problem with his or her own way of thinking, often by breaking the problem down into smaller and smaller pieces. Once the student understands the problem, the solution is easy!."

" My Engineering curriculum at Northwestern was heavily centered around math, chemistry, biology, and physics, so I can work with a student on more than one class at a time. I'm a laid back individual, but I like to push my students. I know that every student is able to do well and I really enjoy helping them along their path to success. But being laid back, I am good at relaxing a student and helping point out what is important and what is not. In my free time, I enjoy writing music."

"I like to translate science into something anyone can understand using easily relatable examples from every day life. I honestly believe a tutor can help anyone learn any subject, and my goal is to convince kids that they “can” do science or math. I have had quite a bit of success at this already and hope to continue as such. If you would like to know more about me, I’m a big reader and a budding movie buff."

" The student then follows that by rote, gets the desired result, but has not actually synthesized the knowledge. That was something that I struggled with throughout my degrees, till I found ways to take the information provided by my teachers and turn it around/rephrase it till it worked for me. I have since worked on applying this skill to the things that have come naturally to me so that I am more able to explain them: in helping my younger siblings with math or writing, I've learned it's not enough just to tell someone how to do something. It is my goal in any tutoring/teaching session to get a student to understand WHY something is done, and how ...

" I've taught students ranging from 13 years old to 67 years old, and I've encountered those students across middle school, high school, community college, and 4-year college environments. I enjoy the challenge of phrasing mathematical concepts in "non-math" language, and am comfortable explaining concepts in a variety of ways. As someone who has always felt comfortable taking standardized tests, I am also proud of the way I explain test-taking strategies. With my experience working in higher education, I am also uniquely able to place standardized tests within the context of overall college admissions.." ...
