## About

I have been a private tutor since 2010. Over the years, I've focused exclusively on high school math and have full mastery of every topic.

My most memorable student was failing trigonometry (50's), the last math class she needed to graduate. She had no plans for college, she didn't think she could get in. After 3 months and a crushing 87 on her final, her parents reached out to let me know that she started preparing college applications over the summer.

## Frequently asked questions

### What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We go through old tests, quizzes, homeworks to discover how the student progressed through the current year. We examine short falls and misunderstandings to better gauge where the learning will start. As math is a compounding subject, it is always best to go back and fix issues from earlier in the student's math career before pushing forward. Once we have a plan set, we review each topic in succession and tie it into the current work being assigned.

### What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I majored in Mathematics at Stony Brook University and have tutored privately for over 10 years. I've had many successful students who attended Ivy League level schools including Cornell and Harvard.

### Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Lessons range from $80 - $100 based on the math subject being tutored.

### How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in college when a friend asked me to help him prepare for the pre-calculus final at the end of our first year of college. He did so well that he recommended I do this as a business so I took his advice and ran with it.

### What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked almost exclusively with high school students. Specializing in this way has made me extremely proficient in HS subjects.

### What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

### What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Have I historically under performed in math? When did my grades start falling? Was it a result of not understading or perhaps there were days missed? How often will I require homework help and when are my tests typically given? Am I looking to prepare for a specific test or am I looking for better understanding to have a foundation for year to come?
