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 THE LATTER. My previous tutoring experience has taught me one thing above all else: everybody learns differently, and effective teachers are the ones who can adapt. This is what I do for all my students.
A little more about me:
I have recently relocated to the Upper West Side after completing my M.S. at Stanford in August. As an undergrad, I scored a 790/800 on the GRE quantitative reasoning test (the SAT's bigger, meaner brother). I also received a scholarship for being top of my financial math class, which gave me the chance to volunteer three days per week as a math tutor in a high school after-school program. I am interested in spending some time each week doing something I enjoy– HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE CONQUER MATH.
