Danni "...Since I am passionate about all subjects of mathematics, I am comfortable with teaching from elementary school-level math to undergraduate college-level math, such as Linear Algebra and Differential Equations. However, I am most passionate about teaching SAT Math, as well as the SAT subject Math 1 and Math 2, because I enjoy the diverse mathematic topics tested in the SAT. I believe that there are several key components that every tutor should keep in mind: repetition, patience, and encouragement..."
