Gerardo definitely knows a lot about Microsoft Excel. He taught me how to use pivot tables, create histograms, produce graphs of data, and he also helped me learn a few keyboard short-cuts to do my work more efficiently. Gerardo is a patient and effective tutor and I highly recommend him!
Ana
Gerardo helped me out in Calculus because I was truly struggling. I had a tough professor and I had not taken a math course in a couple of years. He did a great job at tutoring me through webcam and he was really patient with me. I would definitely recommend!
Henry
Gerardo helped me prepare for my AP Calculus AB test. I had trouble understanding certain concepts such as related rates and using integration to find volumes. He explained problems very clearly by going step-by-step, and making sure I understood the process every step of the way. I highly recommend Gerardo if you are looking for a math tutor.

Lotus M.
Andy embodies all that a good teacher should be. He mixes the art of emotional connection to the science. After 5 hours teaching sessions with Andy, and without having any prior knowledge on accounting, I felt confident in the fundamentals. He is excellent in helping someone thoroughly understand the subject matter. He is patient, flexible and highly professional and I would highly recommend Andy to anyone seeking a tutor.

I have dealt with calculus for years and can help you master it as well! Calculus is very much a language and learning to speak it is not so daunting with the right teacher. I am that person.

I have dealt with calculus from high school to the present. I took AP calculus BC and scored a 5 on the AP test. I've also taken calculus III and Differential Equations and TAed the latter in college. I have worked with multiple students in preparing for calculus exams (AP and collegiate) and worked with the material continuously as a physics major. You want someone who has worked in (and TAed) the subject to help you master it!

Concerning AP calculus, I scored a 5 on the test and have helped other students work towards studying it too! My knowledge in this category is strong enough that I could help write the test if asked. I also write practice materials for my students and so this is an invaluable tool to take advantage of. I have taken 10 AP tests in my high school career as well.

About Alex

Teaching is what I do! I have TAed multiple classes and taught dozens of students. I teach piano and other music concepts, as well as STEM fields in school. I only teach concepts that I'm completely fluent in, however, so you always get the absolute best instruction possible! I have been playing
