I have 10 years of math tutoring experience, which have helped my students achieve top scores on standardized exams. I stress understanding over memorizing formulas to ensure my students can appreciate/enjoy math and apply it to any quantitative career (engineering/data analytics/research).
I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, but it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

I view algebra like a game: there are simple rules that govern what you can do, and if you know and understand the rules, the game is a whole lot easier. If algebra seems to be a struggle for a student, I can help them identify the basic concepts (i.e. rules) on which they need to strengthen their understanding. Algebra is an essential tool I use to solve a myriad of problems every day as an engineer, and so I am intimately familiar with its many different topics, and perhaps because I understand its value, I genuinely enjoy teaching algebra to others.
I remember what it was like to personally struggle with algebra, and I know the most common pitfalls which make it seem more difficult than it actually is. Because of this experience, I am quite adept on picking up on my students' weak points, and helping them clear up fuzzy understandings of the rules of algebra. I started teaching algebra six years ago when I first started teaching it to myself. Since that time, algebra has been the subject I have tutored the most, and I believe I have become quite good at helping students master concepts that were once most challenging for them.
My goal is to help my students not only raise their algebra grades to all As, but more importantly, to help them establish a rock-solid base in algebra on which to build higher math skills. I do this by:
1. Providing each algebra student with a thorough, in-depth review of the basic concepts in which they have not yet mastered
2. Demonstrating central problem-solving techniques that are essential for all levels of math (and science)
3. Providing them with practice problems to do in between our sessions so that they have the opportunity to solidify the information and skills they learn.
There are amazing careers waiting for those who are educated in higher mathematics, and everyone should have the opportunity to pursue them. It all begins with a solid foundation in algebra.

I have been teaching math for several years now and understand the need for a good foundation. I work with students to find any concepts they have missed or do not fully understand. My goal in teaching math is always comprehension not grades. After laying a good foundation, it is amazing to see the improvement and success my students have had!

Experienced, professional and patient tutor!
My name is Junia. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biology at the University of Central Florida (UCF). In college, I was in the Dean’s and President lists. I also had an honor scholarship which shows that I am driven by success at high standards. I hold an Advanced National Tutor Certificate. I have tutored many students in math, ESOL, and science over the past 10 years across all age groups with a very high success rate. My goals as a tutor are to offer an excellent and targeted learning which addresses specific learning challenges that the student is currently facing, to equip students with exam preparation strategies, and help them learn techniques that enable them to achieve and succeed in their subjects. I am very patient and attentive to the needs of the students so that they can attain their goals.
My role as a tutor is to make learning enjoyable. I always keep my students engage in the learning process. I do everything I can to make learning a pleasant experience. I am willing to go the extra miles when students ask for additional help and clarification. Let me be your personal guide, so that you can become a self-sufficient learner capable of reaching and achieving far more than you ever thought possible. I'll help you get there by installing the growth mindset that you need to succeed. I'm a gifted and talented tutor. YOU are a gifted and talented student. I'll bring it out of you! Reach out and let me make learning fun for you again and let's tackle any one of those difficult subjects together.
I require 24 hours notice for a cancellation. If a lesson is not cancelled, yet the student fails to show up within the first 15 minutes of the lesson, a no-show fee of 100% of that lesson will be kept. However, I completely understand that sometimes there may be an emergency. If this is the case, I am happy to reschedule the lesson for a later time if there is calendar availability, as long as the student messages me 24 hours prior to the scheduled session.

The math teachers in the classrooms are so busy teaching students WHAT to do, they don't have the time to explain WHY it's done that way. This is where I'm different. Instead of having students memorize formulas, I derive them. My students understand the thinking that went into the formulas and are better prepared to not only retain the formulas longer, but also recognize when a situation (word problem) calls for a particular formula. The way I explain it, MATH ALWAYS MAKES SENSE.
In my 18 years of experience, I've become very acquainted with the common core curriculum for Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus.
On my own and through a variety of companies, I've helped HUNDREDS of students prepare for both the SAT and ACT math tests.
I also cover AP Calculus and I've lost count of how many of my students scored 5. (On a scale of 1 to 5.)
