Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Pre-Calculus tutors in Smithtown, NY
"I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from NYU-Poly, but spend most of my free time either inside reading or outside gardening and running. When I am not busy with school or leisure, I will be helping you or your child grasp a difficult subject or improve a test score. I encourage my students to talk me through their thought process when tackling a problem, so that I can pinpoint exactly what is preventing them from arriving at the right solution. While getting the right answer is important in life, and especially on tests, my time at MIT and NYU Poly has taught me that fostering the analytical thinking skills ...

"In 2011 I graduated from Columbia University with a BA in Visual Arts and Pre-Medical Studies. Coming from an underprivileged background, I could never imagine this being a possibility, but because of the support and encouragement of many of my teachers, I was able to see the potential they saw in me. They showed me that learning can be pleasurable and that success comes with determination – where there’s a will there is a way. I aspire to one day be a pediatrician."

"I have several years of experience tutoring high school students of all abilities and interest levels in algebra I and II, geometry, pre-calculus, calculus (AB and BC), and statistics, as well as in SAT math. I BELIEVE THAT ANY STUDENT CAN MASTER THESE CONCEPTS, REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY CURRENTLY FEEL ABOUT THEIR MATHEMATICAL ABILITIES OR INTEREST LEVEL, SO LONG AS THEY HAVE TWO THINGS: 1. A desire to learn the material (a desire to survive the course or test will do) 2. A teacher who is creative enough to understand how the student thinks, and can adapt lessons into the student's "own language" accordingly IF YOU BRING THE FORMER, I’LL BRING ...

"I am currently pursuing a BA in Applied Mathematics at CUNY Queens College where I tutor Corporate Finance and Environmental Science. I enjoy using Mathematics in my daily life and I believe that a true mark of understanding a material is being able to apply it to your reality. One of the things that I enjoy about tutoring is seeing a smile on a client’s face once he or she has understood the material that was presented. I believe that this is one of the true joys of teaching. I have had several other experiences in being a tutor where I tutored lower school students while I was in High School and during my first undergraduate degree I tutored ...

"My goal in life is to teach mathematics with simplicity and understanding. I am committed to making a mark that cannot be erased, locally and globally. Math is not about memorizing rules and procedures, its actual logic built into our everyday lives... from the arch of a bridge to the coordinates of the street to the mass transit system..."

"I've just completed University myself. It's pretty safe to say I know my way around the block. Math is my specialty, namely calculus and probability, but I definitely have a well rounded skill set in almost every field of academics, including economics, history, writing, the English language, and public speaking. I've tutored friends, neighbors, and students for years, and my focus is not just for you to excel in your courses, but for you to yearn for and appreciate the inherent beauty of academia."

"While going to college I always had an interest in science and math. I enjoy imparting the Math and science knowledge to students who did not understand the subject as well as I did. I got a job as a tutor during my first year in college and have continued to tutor because I realized that I loved tutoring and I like to help people achieve their goals. Over the years while working in various capacities such as a network engineer, a process engineer and an environmental engineer I always tried to devote time to helping students. I tutored high school students, college students and adult learners." ...
