About Daniel M.

Close

I love teaching, and I love Math. I've been preparing students to succeed in Algebra for the past 5 years and my students have gone on to master the subject. I specialize in online lessons. I typically use the student's book or my own materials. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Daniel
I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

If you've ever struggled with Algebra and wished you had someone that could explain it to you in a way that you could understand, I may be the teacher for you. My students learn because I adapt the lessons to their own personal experiences and interests. When students can make math personal, they have a much better chance of excelling at it.

About Rob
I am an easy going, knowledgable and creative teacher. I strive to put the students and their personal needs first. I'm very aware that each student/person learns differently and I incorporate various strategies of learning into my lessons. There is a lot of humor and dialogue with my lessons, allowing my students the freedom to be themselves while playing.

As a school teacher, I have lots of experience in building student confidence and knowledge. If you aren't confident then you aren't progressing!

I like to record my students at different intervals of their education so they can hear the progress! I email a lesson recap after every lesson so that the student can see what we learned that week, including any notes/attachments for the student to review.

I also encourage my students to text/email/ or call with any questi
ons/concerns between lessons. This gives my students the ability to get through a challenging or difficult concept/strategy when its happening and not have to wait till the next lesson.

Rob is an amazing teacher! My 6 year old daughter is very energetic, and has challenges staying on task. Rob makes every class fun, and adjusts his style or plan to keep her interested in the guitar lesson. I feel like she has learned a lot in a short period of time. I highly recommend Rob!

No show. I was set up and ready 10 minutes ahead of time, and 15 minutes after we were supposed to start I gave up. No call. no email, nothing. I called him at 6:20 to be told his day was screwed up by a funeral, and I told him my dog ate my homework. Pathetic. I knew I had a lesson, he must have known he had one to give, and no notification whatsoever. I don't do business like this.

Algebra is mostly using the times table...also fractions and declinations. When working with numbers usually algebra uses "X" or "Y" to figure out the answer to a problem without making the solution obvious..Yes..sounds like a challenge right?..but I must say mathematicians like you are ready & set to learn!!

About Donna Dorothy
I like to consider myself as a silly personality. Going through hard times can be a downer but a good smile and laugh is definitely the cure for me and many people I know!..I live to inspire people with a new way of thinking.!.Teaching to me is where it's at!! ...School work can be a drag...I know..but sometimes we get a teacher that changes everything!..Don't lose hope!
I started my college education in Hawaii and then in Vermont , then back to New York. Yes this country is great and so is everyone & everything in it & what it has to offer. ..The best education is definitely one of them.
If you need assistance in algebra we can go over multiplication and division terms..exponents too !..
I am pretty proficient in the Russian language too and can teach Russian speakers English ....vocabulary, grammar, verbs and sentence structure...a
nd Russian speakers the English language too!!..Hope to see you soon and Thank you!!!

Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

Aside from math and English, I’m a very proficient test and note taker. I speak conversational Spanish, and basic Japanese.

About Mitch
Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for finding the source of motivation for others.

Are you frustrated with the college application process? I can assist in this area and in aclimating to college environment. I've mentored many students through college, with great success.

Hope to work with you soon.

From arithmetic, to algebra, to multivariable calculus, and beyond, I employ teaching methods that make mathematics intuitive and fun! With masters degrees in mathematics and physics, I have over 15 years of experience teaching at the college level. I have also worked with students as young as 10 on math skills (even younger if you count my own kids!), and have successfully worked with both struggling math-phobes as well as advanced students.

About GAYLE
I have been teaching math, physics, and astronomy at the college level for over 15 years. I've also worked with and tutored students as young as 10 (even younger if you count my own children!). I've volunteered at the local elementary school as a STEM activities leader and creative writing instructor, and enjoy working with students of all ages.

When not teaching, I am a freelance writer, playwright, blogger, and award-winning author. I believe my ability to succeed in creative as well as analytic endeavors contributes to my ability to relate to students, regardless of where their strengths lie.

If you're struggling with algebra, I can show you how to make it easy.

About Pete
I tutor beginning French, high school and college physics, and mathematics from basic arithmetic through calculus. I home-schooled my own kids—two daughters who are now straight-A students at university, including mathematics.

I first began teaching French in 1965 when I was a 3rd year high school French student, helping other students who were struggling to learn the language. Everyone whom I helped showed great improvement in their comprehension.

I'm a retired physicist and engineer who worked as the senior scientist for a consulting engineering firm. Over the years I have helped many students who were having difficulty with algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus, as well as physics.

I remember what it was like to feel lost and intimidated by math problems that looked difficult. Geometry was easy for me, but algebra was
a struggle, until I figured out a fundamental approach that simplified everything. In turn, that approach made it much easier to understand trigonometry.

Similarly, I had a difficult time with high school calculus until I took physics. Once I saw that there was a practical use for the mathematics, it all became clear.

I know what my stumbling blocks were, and how I got past them. That's why I believe I can help anyone who's having a tough time with mathematics, at any level.

About Trevor
Within the past six years, I have tutored high school and college students in various math topics including geometry, algebra 1, algebra 2, and trigonometry. My strengths are in math topics. I helped teach a college anatomy lab course at High Point University before I moved to Florida. I have experience in biology, chemistry and physics. Each student that I worked with learned in a different way, so I strive to alter my tutoring style to meet the needs of the individual while meeting the class expectations. I am currently studying education at the University of Central Florida. My current classes teach new ways to convey information to a variety of students across settings and subjects. My lessons are fun and I use examples and fun tricks to remember the information!
