I studied Math up through Calculus Two in college and am highly proficient with any math up through Calculus One.

About Carrie
*****I don't have a current background check through take lessons but have an active ongoing background check through another employer ******

I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 15 years. I have my BA in music and business. I have had some amazing experiences along the way. I've worked with world renowned vocal coaches, sang at Carnegie Hall, and played on various cds to raise money/awareness for charity projects. I'm grateful for all of this, but I love working with students on their music most of all. It delights me to see a student have an "aha" moment where they realize that they have what it takes to be great. I'd love to work with you, but if I don't I hope you reach your goals and have fun doing it ! ~ Carrie Jo ~

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a laid back teacher but you will definitely learn
a lot. I just believe if it starts to not be fun, what's the point? Music isn't just about perfect theory and note placement it's about enjoyment. That's why I tailor make every lesson specifically based on my student's goals. I have students that like a more traditional approach so I use standard method books with them. I also have students that want to learn how to play by ear so we use a less traditional method and I teach them chord structures and how to move around easily on their instrument. My favorite thing to teach is vocal lessons but I love teaching piano and guitar also.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught on an upright piano or acoustic/electric guitar. Student should bring own guitar. No pets. Waiting room out front for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I've performed at Carnegie Hall and I've had the opportunity to work with world renowned vocal coaches. I offer that as well as techniques that I've developed to help you reach your goals quickly and with great skill !

Working through the basics can be the most essential and rewarding foundation for one's math education. Let me help aid that process to ensure a solid knowledge base that will carry on through school and beyond!

About Erin
I carry an enthusiasm for knowledge and "nerdy" subjects like mathematics and science! I believe in the power of positive reinforcement and aim to foster not only knowledge, but also confidence. Lessons are individualized for the student and their goal grade/test score. I am passionate about education and the development of growing minds, and it shows in my sessions.

My assistance doesn't stop just because the lesson is over. I make myself available to students (via email) for as-needed homework and study-related questions.

I have nearly 10 years experience working as an educator.
I am honored to work with students throughout the year, for long-term results, but am also happy to assist with short-term needs such as midterm/final exam preparation.

Also available for:
College admissions consulting -- Let me help your family nav
igate this complex process. I can assist with choosing programs and schools, tailoring applications to each recipient school, and generally putting together the strongest possible application packet.

Erin was very caring, articulate, thorough and responsive. She tested my daughter's knowledge by assigning her problems to do prior to their sessions. As a result, she was able to get 100% on all of her home/class work.

My tutoring career began as a sophomore in high school when I started to tutor a family friend. After that, I led my own free tutoring program at my local library for underserved children. It was a great experience for me to develop a mentorship with the kids and to develop my leadership skills. Once I graduated high school, I got a summer job with Jose Valdes Math Institute. Since college began, I’ve been doing a lot of one-on-one tutoring with students and I absolutely love it. Math rocks!

As a tutor, I realize that all students learn things in different ways. I try my best to help the student understand the material, not just to memorize it. If the student doesn’t understand it, I try to approach the problem a different way. Having a stable foundation of understanding is especially important when it comes to subjects like math and science, in which the material is cumulative.

About Yazmin
Hi! My name is Yazmin and I am the oldest of five. I was born and raised in San Jose, California and now I attend university only 15 minutes away from home, lucky me! I enjoy working out and I am always up for anything outdoors— hiking, picnics, bicycling you name it! I am a junior bioengineering major at Santa Clara University. My freshman year, I was one of thirty first year students to be awarded for outstanding academic achievement. Once I graduate, I hope to attend medical school and one day become a physician.

Yazmin was terrific! My daughter felt very comfortable working with her. Yazmin was confident with the chemistry content and very good at explaining and
re-teaching the material. I highly recommend Yazmin and are looking forward to working with her again.

Math is critical in life. You don’t have to be a scientist to run a business but it’s critical to know it.I was educated in Europe and also have a MBA in International Business earned in the USA. I had managed international businesses for years, and continue to strategize plans in the domain.

About Isabela
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I be
lieve in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.

I am a chemical engineer and as an engineer, you can never ignore maths because Mathematics is the language of physical science and engineering, Mathematics is more than tool for solving problems; mathematics courses can develop intellectual maturity. Mathematics is a part of everyone's life. Every student should experience the thrill of mathematical discovery. Every teacher can appreciate the elegance of a great mathematical insight.I also offer tutoring services in Prealgebra, Algebra 1;2, Pre calculus, Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry.My experience in tutoring Maths have led me to compile my own practice sheets in each topic that has helped the students in so many years. My teaching philosophy is straightforward: teach your students as you would want to be taught - with enthusiasm, and with a passion for the subject combined with respect and understanding for the students.

About Alisha
I have been tutoring for over 8 years now, My teaching philosophy is straightforward: teach your students as you would want to be taught - with enthusiasm, and with a passion for the subject combined with respect and understanding for the student. Chemistry and maths is a subject that I have studied, practiced, taught and enjoyed over the last 8 years Effective teaching involves time, dedication, patience, understanding, firmness, and a sense of humor. True learning incorporates active participation by the student, inside as well as outside the classroom.

Guiding students through the maze of chemical symbols, equations and concepts can only be accomplished by giving the students the means and opportunity to take charge of their own learning reinforced by an appropriate reward system. My main focus is to teach in a way that will re
ach all my students. I enjoy the challenge of working not only with different learning styles, but very different backgrounds, from honors students to students who have taken the course unsuccessfully before. Chemistry is difficult for most students, therefore they must be able to make mistakes, learn from them, and in the end be rewarded for their efforts and the chemical knowledge they acquired.
For a truly successful learning community, the importance of open two-way communication is emphasized in my class.This only happens if there is mutual respect.

My philosophy inextricably entwines my enthusiasm and passion for the subject of chemistry and maths with my respect and high regard for all students irrespective of their grades. It is particularly rewarding when students become majors or minors because of my class, which happens on occasion, or go on into professional school.

Alisha is extremely well-informed and an expert in Organic Chemistry. She knows exactly what she is talking about and, more importantly, *understands* it and can articulate the concepts in a way that is easy to comprehend. She is patient with me and is willing to go slowly on practice problems so I can fully grasp the concepts and theory. I would hire Alisha again in a heartbeat.
