I am a math major at SUNY New Paltz where I have been a tutor for over a year. I am very adept in calculus based studies, but I can certainly help with most areas of mathematics. Generally, I cannot assist in statisics or economics depending on the problem.

I love bringing to light the knowledge of math to students who request it. Sometimes a teacher can't quite drill into a students head a certain subject, so there's nothing wrong with getting an outside eye on the topic. I enjoy being a guide to students who need it.

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

First it helps to know how much the student understands and then we can work from there. We can work through homework problems or any other general issues the student is having.

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

I am in my third year of college at SUNY New Paltz studying mathematics. I tutored pre-calc when I was in high school, but currently I am one of the tutors at the math lab at the college. I have helped students in various classes ranging from Geometry, Calculus, and Algebra.

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

For high school students I charge $35/hr, and for college students I charge $45/hr.

How did you get started teaching?

I was always interested in teaching, but I found out the math lab at my college needed tutors so I decided to start working there. It's been a lot of fun, honestly.

What types of students have you worked with?

When I was a senior in high school, I tutored a freshman at the school for most of the year. At college, however, I've tutored basically every kind of student; freshman through senior, students in my own classes, adults who came back to school. They varied from areas in math, mostly algebra and pre-calc, but I have tutored more upper-division classes as well.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

In the math lab there was an older gentleman taking calc II that would frequently come in, and he always asked to see me. Calc II is definitely my favorite subject to teach in, and it was just fun to help out. I would spend a lot of time with him going through problems and concepts; it appeared as though I sparked his interest, and we would just get talking after a while about math.

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

The lower in advancement you are the more options for tutors you have. Basically every tutor can help with algebra and fundamental concepts, but the higher you go the more selective it is. If you are studying a more upper-division subject in math, it's important to find time for the individual you will be hiring because there aren't many options for you. However, if you are in high school or in some basic math course, then you shouldn't have trouble finding a tutor to fit your schedule.

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

Well, circle any specific problems in homeworks or tests that they'd want to go over. While taking notes, put a star next to anything that didn't quite sink in the right way during class. Questions should surely come up all over the place, so writing them down doesn't help. New questions will probably surface during tutoring also.
