# Award-Winning Trigonometry Tutors in Alden, NY

Avni ...tutoring style is to talk and work through a lot of practice problems together. When the student feels comfortable tackling some practice problems on their own, I know they've mastered the concept. I'm also a great listener; if you tell me that you are having a problem in a certain area of a subject, I can very much tailor the lesson and practice problems to the target area. Outside of school, I spend a lot...

Outside of tutoring, I co-own a small software company with my brother, and in my spare time...

Nick ...memorizing equations, or “plug and chug” techniques are both inadequate. Conceptual understanding and practical application are both equally important as one informs the other. I know a student understands a topic when they are both able to discuss its implications as well as solve numerical problems. Math and physics are some of my favorite subjects to tutor. Getting to talk about the first principles that lead to all of the amazing engineering I love is...

Ryan ...everybody can learn and enjoy math. I have experience teaching pre-algebra up to calculus, and would be comfortable tutoring any of those subjects. Additionally, I have direct experience tutoring pre-algebra, algebra 1, geometry, and pre-calculus. I enjoy tutoring most because I get the opportunity to really attack the direct needs of the student. I am able to focus on the issues of the individual, without need to concern myself with a group.... The first session with a student will be a lot of assessment. I need to gain an understanding of where the student is at academically, and where their struggles are. We will do some teaching during this session as well, but the focus will be on me gaining an understanding of my student, and the student gaining an understanding of me as their tutor.
