Pre calculus doesn't really connect with calculus!

About Tommy
Greetings! My name is Tommy Huang, and I am an expert in Mathematics. I am happy to offer tutoring services for anyone who wants help learning Mathematics. Helping others has always been a major passion of mine, and I am thrilled that I have the opportunity to pass my knowledge and skills on to others.

I earned my Master’s degree in Statistics and Applied Mathematics, and my Bachelor’s degree was in Mathematics and Economics. I first started working as a Math tutor during my undergrad years, and I continue to help students to this day. Through the years, I have worked as both a classroom teacher, as well as a private tutor. As a tutor, I have taught at several colleges, learning centers and even private homes.

Most of my students are Middle School, High School, or College students who either need extra assistance in Math or are loo
king to get ahead and learn advanced material. With my help, students improve their grades and gain confidence in their Math skills. Additionally, I also regularly assist students in preparing for the Math sections on important Standardized Tests, such as the SAT and the ACT. Most of my students report that they achieve highly-desirable results on these tests thanks to my help.

I teach my students how to recognize patterns and how to apply appropriate problem-solving techniques whenever they encounter a certain type of problem. Math is all about recognizing problems and applying the appropriate steps in order to reach a solution. Once a student knows how to recognize problems and use the correct techniques to reach a desired outcome, they can accomplish almost anything in Math.

My favorite aspect of tutoring is having the ability to teach something I love, while also working to improve the lives of others. It gives me great joy whenever I am able to help a student overcome their obstacles and achieve success. I really enjoy Math, and I want to show my students that Math can be fun and exciting with a little bit of practice. I believe that anyone can learn Math if they put their mind to it.

I offer competitive rates for my tutoring services, and I guarantee outstanding results. If you have any questions, or you would like to inquire about receiving tutoring, please send me a message, and I will return it as soon as possible. Thanks, and have a great day!

- Tommy Huang

About Andrew
Teaching and tutoring has been my calling from early in life. It started with tutoring my friends, up to when I was hired through my high school Calculus class to tutor 10th grade Geometry students.

Since then, I've taught GRE, ACT and SAT prep and I've been a classroom mathematics teacher (from 7th grade to 12th grade) for almost a decade.

I have two specialties that make me fairly unique in the domain of Mathematics and Test Prep teaching and tutoring: First, I help students to understand the topic on a much deeper and more interesting level, by connecting it to related topics and skills, providing historical background, and elaborating on how it's been used and how it's currently used. This makes the material much more interesting, and, hence, much more likely to be recalled it in the future, than when it is taught the standard w
ay.

Secondly, I am well aware of the role test-anxiety and self-doubt plays in the lack of success of some students, so I put a lot of emphasis on the emotional and psychological component of learning and test-taking. With a bachelor's degree in Psychology, I have tools to apply that help students to overcome the debilitating affects of test anxiety, self-doubt, and fear of failure.

Beyond this, I am very personable and can connect with most any student that I teach. I love to help students to learn, and that is readily evident to my students. Some students are intimidated by teachers or tutors who don't know how to connect with the students on a personal level, or how to break things down in a way that makes sense to the student, but that's where I truly excel. Instead of simply repeating myself and wondering why a students doesn't understand a challenging concept, I work to grasp where the breakdown occurs, and then build up from what they do already understand. Through this, I have had unparalleled success throughout my teaching experience, whether it is Math specifically, or Test Prep more generally.

Working with me will not only provide you nearly immediate success, but the effects will carry over well into the future. My teaching is a lifetime investment.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to overcome your challenges to reach your greatest potential.

Since he is an experienced teacher, I invited Andy to speak to my graduate students in the teacher certification program at Temple University. He was very well received. Andy spoke to the pre-service teachers about classroom management, adolescent development, and test anxiety. His presentation was well organized and engaging, and the students learned much from his words of wisdom and concrete examples from urban teaching.

Andy has been working with our middle-school-aged son this summer, to help him prepare for a challenging Algebra I class next school year. We didn't want to overwhelm our son with endless lessons, so we prioritized finding a tutor who would tailor both his teaching style and the material for optimal understanding. Andy did exactly that. He rapidly got to know our son's learning style, motivations, and concerns-- and structured his lessons to complement them. Andy's deep understanding of math pedagogy enabled him to devise a novel teaching plan that has previewed key algebra concepts with our son, laying a firm conceptual foundation and boosting our son's confidence as the school year approaches.

As parents we are also grateful for Andy's accessibility via telephone and email to discuss our son's progress. He has thoughtfully incorporated our input and input from our son's future schoolteacher.

We are also delighted that our son enjoys his tutoring sessions with Andy, and looks forward to his visits! We highly recommend Andy and are glad that we found him.

Mr. Andrew is an exceptional educator that truly cares about the success of his students. Our daughter was part of his SAT prep
class the summer before her senior year. Mr. Andrew
gave her the skills she needed to improve her test score by more than 200 points. But more importantly than her test score she was confident and comfortable before taking the test. Mr. Andrew provided her with really good insight into what the test preparers were looking for and help to fine tune skills that she has worked during her early high school years. We are proud to say our daughter was accepted at all four of the schools she applied to. She was accepted early decision to Drexel University and will be a freshman there in merely 34 days!!!

Thank you Mr. Andrew we couldn't have done it without you.

I have tutored all levels of mathematics since 2006. As a tutor, I reinforce all concepts, provide examples, and provide the student with opportunity to work on practice problems on their own to assess their understanding of the subject matter.

About Ronald
I received my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Economics (GPA 3.72) and my Master's degree in Applied Statistics (GPA 4.0) at Rutgers University. I have had the pleasure in being a tutor since 2006.

I was a tutor at Rutgers University for 6 years during my tenure as an undergraduate & Graduate student tutoring Math, Economics, and Statistics. I continue to assist students with diverse backgrounds and learning needs. My students range from middle school through college/graduate level. I tutor all levels of Mathematics and Statistics.
Currently, I am a professional Statistician analyzing big data for a living and tutoring on the side.

The qualities that I possess as a tutor are that I'm passionate about the subject matter to help students be engaged in the subject matter, very knowledgeable in the subject matter which will enab
le me to fill in the gaps in knowledge that the student may have, and I'm patient as I understand the struggles that the student is experiencing in trying to learn the new concepts.

I graduated with a 4.0 GPA. Last year, I scored above the 93rd percentile on my GRE Verbal and Writing sections. In high school, I scored above the 98th percentile on the SAT/ACT Verbal sections. I graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA from all AP and honors classes.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
I am a speech-language pathologist with experience teaching children and adults various areas of language. Additionally, I have been tutoring a range of other subjects for over f
ive years. I have worked at the international Berlitz Language School, where I have taught English, French and Italian to children and adults of all levels and all language backgrounds. I also have years of experience teaching SAT classes at test prep companies in New York.

When you need help with your remedials class for Calculus or want to prepare for a Calculus course: Sometimes you just need that extra watchful help from someone supporting you very close by. I can help you!

90mins/lesson + travel fee; travel fee waived for 120min lessons.

About Rod
I specialize in Test Prep (middle/high school Common Core, Regents, SHSAT, etc), college/graduate admissions tests (i.e. SAT/ACT, GRE) and tutor a number of academic subjects in Mathematics (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Combinatorics), Statistics and Science (especially Physics). I am particularly interested in Number Theory, Systems Engineering (Feedback Theory), Electronics (Analog Circuit Design), Cosmology. In the social sciences, I was practically exposed to Marketing and HR/Corporate Strategy. I have bachelor's and master's degrees in electronics engineering and business respectively and I enjoy tutoring both children and adults.

My interests also include gifted learning and STEM education. For example, I was successful in helping a 5-year old pass the NYC Gifted & Talented Test so he could e
nroll in any school participating in the program in New York City.

I have several years of work experience as an engineer (hardware+software) and as business developer in multinational companies and startups and this has given me deeper and practical insights into personality and intelligence so I can perhaps bring some encouragement relevant to your current/future vocation. Furthermore, as I have learned from experience, there are three best tools for learning: practice, practice and more practice!

Tutoring for yourself or for your son/daughter is both an investment in time and money for a future return so please also plan accordingly. I only tutor only on occasions when I am available so I am quite happy to be part of someone's educational journey but kindly make sure that you have a very flexible schedule also. When there is a match in both schedule and objectives, I consider it indeed a very special privelege to be able to help a student because it is my experience that effective education can be life-changing.

Tutoring Rate (IMPORTANT): I only do in-person tutoring because I believe effective learning is multi-dimensional and personal not flat and distant. My minimum lesson length is 1.5 hours for Academic subjects and 2.0 hours for Test Prep. My rates for children and teens will be in principle the same as adults because I invest at least an equivalent amount of time and effort and I have to consider at least 2 individuals compared with an adult student (so in reality, I have to charge more)! Different arrangements possible on a case-by-case basis and in general I do offer DISCOUNTS for 5 lessons or more after the first session (see each subject rate for more details). Finally, I am aware that other tutors may be in a better position to meet your budget and situation so we have to accept that.

When I am not tutoring, I am involved in projects related to technology, hospitality and service industries. I also enjoy cooking especially when I can make an ordinary dish into something extraordinary by adding that little "extra."

I asked Rod to work with my daughter on geometry to help her get ready for 9th grade. Rod explains each concept and its application very well. His lessons are appropriate for grade level but also challenging. I am particularly happy that my daughter is learning a broader approach to problem solving and critical thinking. As a scientist (PhD in chemistry) and a mother of a teenager, I appreciate Rod’s approach as it will provide a solid foundation for my daughter’s learning for many years to come. And he is always on time and gives me an overview of what was covered and what will be covered after each lesson. I highly recommend him.

I has reached out Rod at the point in which I resigned and I was expecting to get "B" in my statistics class. I was not confident and constantly struggled in responding to the test questions because I was not sure of concepts. Rod explained me concepts step by step in a very simple way also, by drawing the graphs and that everything was clear for me as visual person. He was able to answered and explained all my questions that I was well prepared and confident on my final exam. Thanks to him I gained the necessary knowledge and I ended with "A".

We originally solicited Rod's support in order to help get our 8th grade daughter up to speed in math class. With high school rapidly approaching, we wanted to ensure that her footing was solid for the rigors of the high school curriculum. As the New York State testing approached, we asked Rod to take some time in the weekly sessions to work on test-taking skills and to do a bit of brushing up on skills that my daughter may run into trouble with. I had my daughter take last year's 8th grade state test (which I found a copy of online), and asked Rod to review her work and help address the learning gaps. Rod's approach was to help my daughter recognize that she actually did know how to do many of the questions that she answered correctly, and with helping her reframe some of the questions, she was able to recognize that the test was not in fact, blind siding her which did wonders for her confidence. Rod spent ample time discussion stress reduction techniques, both before and after the test. As an incredibly supportive gesture, he followed up with us after each of the test days in order to inquire as to how she did, and show she was feeling overall. Rod's contribution definitely helped alleviate her anxiety and bolstered her confidence. By the end of the test she felt confident that she had performed to the best of her ability.

I have taught classes in pre calculus. I do ONLINE tutoring as well as in-person. When I am helping a student my job is not to tutor but to teach.

About Dr. Arnold
Hello,

I have a Ph.D. in Math and have been teaching college math courses and tutoring HS math courses for over 40 years. My top subjects are Statistics, Probability, Calculus, Discrete Math, Finite Math as well as HS AP and pre-calculus classes.

I tutor in-person as well as online. With online tutoring I can be contacted on short notice and if I am free we can connect immediately so I can give homework assistance or help prep for an exam.

For In-Person tutoring I tutor in my home office, in your home or at a mutually agreeable location. I am near Queens College and St. John's University if meeting on campus is convenient. (Travel charge might increase for a longer travel distance or time. Upper level or graduate courses might be at a higher hourly rate.)

I have been successfully tutoring students for as long as I have been
teaching. My goal is to give my students the ability to understand the mathematical concepts that will enable him or her to do well in their particular course.

I know that math does not come easily to everyone and I tailor my tutoring to go at a pace that is appropriate for each individual.

It is just as important for a tutor to listen to the student as it is for the student to pay attention to the tutor.

I look forward to putting my tutoring to work to help you meet and exceed your expectations.

As such, Arnold has been tremendous in helping me revisit this topic, and I firmly believe he has the skillset to do this no matter what the student's level educational level is. He is extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and patient. I highly recommend him as a tutor. You will not be disappointed!

I've been helping students achieve their goals in mathematics since 2008. My students go on to be intrigued by math rather than afraid of it because I give them the necessary tools to approach a problem. In the beginning I'll asses where the students stands in the material and put together a plan that allows that specific student to learn the material the best way possible. I teach every student differently according to their strengths and I look forward to working with you!

About Nick
Hi there! My name is Nick and I've been helping students achieve their classroom goals since 2008. As a computer engineering major at the University of Central Florida I've seen my fair share of mathematics and know a ton of tips and tricks that will enable you to learn rather than memorize material. In my tutor sessions I like to ask my students a lot of questions, this helps students absorb the material we are going over as well as give them confidence when answering questions. I'm a fun, dedicated, and hard working person that will help you meet your goals and I'm looking forward to working with you.

Although some believe that math is daunting, I believe that the student can grasp concepts if it is explained in a way that she/he can understand. There is not a universal, one-size fits all approach to education. I can offer different explanations and approaches to concepts that help you to understand the material that you may have difficulty understanding. I will not belittle you for comprehending what may be obvious to others. Rather, we can work toward an excellent understanding of math within a patient, gentle, and encouraging environment.

About Michael
When helping students, it my belief that patience and belief in the student's abilities are of utmost importance. With this in mind, I am here to guide you through your stumbling blocks and propel you to another level of understanding that makes things a lot clearer for you.

I have experience tutoring students from high school to college level. At different times in my life I acquired two bachelors degrees; one in music, the other in biochemistry. It is important for you to know that I take your education seriously but it can be interspersed with a little humor; not too much, but enough to keep things interesting.

In addition to helping students, I have worked as a professional freelance musician and as a research biochemist. Whether it be one on one or in a group setting, my experiences have taught me to be very patient, flex
ible, and accommodating, I have provided music lessons to promising young musicians in addition to training graduate students.

Whether you be a traditional high school student or a non-traditional adult student, my ultimate goal is to help you gain a better understanding of your material with patience and encouragement in a safe learning environment. Let's get you on the road to some awesome grades. I look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better student.
