I have taught Algebra for over five years and it is probably my favorite math to teach. Its foundation is a few simple rules that with repetition are easily memorized and then can be used throughout the rest of your time studying it.

Best experience! My son who is on 6th grade had to take the SSAT in a short period of time and Chris got him engaged from the first class, not easy for an online class. He was easy to communicate and was open to work with our schedule. Thanks for all the work you did!

Great Algebra tutor! Chris was tutoring my daughter in algebra. He picked up very quickly to see where her weakness is. He is very patient and takes his time in making sure my daughter gets it done. Excellent tutor.

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!

I am currently a second year PhD student and research adjunct in Chemical Engineering at The City College of New York. I have 4 years of experience as a teaching assistant, 2 years of which overlapped with experience as a private tutor. While in high school, I was enrolled in advanced placement courses, all of which remain virtually the same in content except for the offerings of Physics I completed in 2016. As an instructor, I bring a creative, patient, and interdisciplinary attitude to the table. In addition to being highly skilled in the areas of math, science, coding, and engineering, I am also happy to mentor students through the college admissions process (both undergraduate and graduate) by providing help with personal statements, standardized exam preparation, and interview skills.

Math is one of my specialties. Whenever a student tells me that he or she is unable to do math, I welcome that as a fun challenge. Math is not impossible - you just haven't grasped it yet.

I understand that many people are really anxious when it comes to Algebra, so I strive NEVER to make anyone feel stupid or wrong for asking ANY question. It is true that math can be very unforgiving, but that doesn't mean that teachers have to be the same way. Instead of viewing myself as an expert that must impart his knowledge to others, I like to think of myself as a guide not only that helps people reach their destination but also one who points out interesting things along the way, making their experience both beneficial and enjoyable! And, honestly, math is pretty awesome! It's empowering; and it doesn't have to be hard. I really think everyone can learn math!

Over my many years of working with math learners, I have come to appreciate that there are many great ways to think about solving a problem - not just one. So, in a typical session, I ask lots of questions rather than do a lot of lecturing. I feel like questions help me to understand your thinking process and your ...

In its basic conceptual form, Algebra is a form of Mathematics with an equation and variables. An equation is "solved" when the values on either side of the = sign are balanced, and the variables bing an equation to life!

Curriculum will be discussed with the student so as to understand goals and co-create a pathway for learning.

A long term goal of mine is to help students gain new skills and self confidence to inspire future learning!

About Joshua

I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education. Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learn
