I've been teaching math for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a stronger connection with the subject after their time with me. Within the first few sessions, you'll be able to fully understand the concept you're working on and as time goes on you'll develop skills for problem solving that make all topic easier. I specialize in 5th through 12th grade, and am familiar with several curriculums and textbooks, including Illustrative Math, CME, Pearson EnVision, and Bridges. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
MUSIC LESSONS: Whether I am playing salsa, solo classical piano, in a jazz ensemble, or a concert band, I am ALWAYS having fun doing what I love, and I want you to have the same experience. After moving to Philadelphia ten years ago to study at Temple University, where I received my Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, I have had many great opportunities to play all types of music with all types of people. While my passions are in jazz music, composing, and arranging, my varied experience helps me pass on the fundamentals necessary to becoming a great musician while also adapting to your goals, needs, and musical preferences.
*** Lesson Details *** I aim for students to leave each lesson eager to practice and explore, and to come back with questions and stories of their progress. To that end, I work hard to tailor lessons to every
individuals interests and goals. Sometimes this means arranging, transcribing a recording, or even composing something new for my students. Additionally, in each lesson, I balance technical skills, ear training, and music theory to assure that each student walks away a complete musician, all structured around your musical goals.
*** Travel Equipment *** The student must provide their own instrument and assigned method books. I will provide a music stand if necessary, and other useful instructional tools (metronome, tuner, etc.)
*** Home Studio *** I offer lessons in my home located within walking distance of Broad Street in South Philadelphia, near the Tasker-Morris subway stop. I am equipped with a well-playing upright piano and plenty of space for musical activities. There is ample street parking in the area during the afternoon and early evening, and our living room is available to parents while students take their lesson. Students who travel to me for lessons gain all the benefits of performing on a piano, rather than an electric keyboard, and have access to many more resources that I am able to offer from my home, such as recordings and method books.
*** Specialties *** I specialize teaching "late starters" (teens and adults new to piano) fundamentals in music in a fun and exciting way that will have you playing the music you love quickly.
For brass instruments, I am able to help brand new beginners build up their sound and facility through simple exercises that will have them astounded by their progress.
MATH: I use my years of classroom teaching and Master's degree in math education as experience to help guide you to the success you are seeking. I am able to tailor sessions to your specific needs with a few key points in mind:
- helping you catch-up, while also preparing you for what is ahead - balancing practice with conceptual knowledge and application - using research-based techniques to maximize your learning
I am a patient teacher, and well-equipped to explain tough topics in multiple ways. I like to use visuals and objects with simple examples to help my students really understand a concept before we try harder material. Total understanding and confidence is my goal for you.
My personal interests in mathematics are problem solving, puzzles, and combinatorics (think "How many different outfits can I make with all the clothes in my closet?"). If you're looking for an addicting puzzle to try, I suggest KenKen to all my students.
I have rich experience working young students with their math.
I view teaching/education as my calling, by that I mean it is a profession that deserves life-time effort and dedication. I ascribe who I am and what I have accomplished to my parents and all my teachers. They instilled knowledge, the skill to learn, and the moral compass in me, which transformed me into an independent and contributing citizen who knows how to and when to make the right decision. I feel that to do the same as my teachers did to me is my responsibility to younger generations.
I hold a Ph.D. in chemistry. With a strong academic background in science and math, I have successfully helped many students improve their academic performance in math and science through tutoring.
In recent years, I have also tutored students in standardized exams. My expertise is MCAT chemistry and physics, SAT, GRE, and GMAT.
I can hel
p you achieve the score you need to enter your dream school.
*** Lesson Details *** I can provide one-to-one private tutoring according to your study needs or small group classes.
Highly unprofessional. Doesn’t know the subject well didn’t help my son at all. Not accommodating with the student’s schedule. Pls don’t waste money with her as your teacher.

I enjoy having Fiona as a tutor for both chemistry and geometry. She is kind and makes the material easier to understand. Also, she is patient and takes her time in explaining the concepts to me, step by step. I love how she types some parts of the problems in the chat box. ~Genesis C.
I will teach you math concepts so that you will be able to handle Elementary Math with no problem. I have a college degree: Bachelors in Science. I have a good following for math subjects, and I can help you.
First off, I want to mention something that potential Philadelphian students should be aware of. I can only go to certain sections of the city, and I can only give you lessons on weekday afternoons between 12-2pm. Sorry, no evening classes. I'll need time to travel between New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Actually, I prefer students in South Jersey. Those students can have lessons in my available time frame.
Now, a little about myself. Are you looking for a great tutor? I'm the one you've been looking for.
I've had more than 3 years of tutoring experience in the following subjects:
* Computers (Java, general topics, C++, C, HTML, application programming, and others) * Math (from elementary math to algebra) * Piano (from basic to more advanced) * Guitar (from theory to more advanced)
I've had favorable reviews from my former
clients, and I'll have competitive low rates as well. What are you waiting for?
I use the simplest way to teach and very interactive manner, so it make the subject more interesting and easiest to understand.
I have been teaching since 2008 with some of the best online teaching companies in the world. Experience of 10 years is more enough to show my teaching skills to different types of students from different countries. My subjects of expertise are Maths, Physics, Chemistry, and Biologywith the class range from Elementary level to college grade. it will be really great to work with you if you need some best teacher that can explain everything from the easiest level to hard.
Experienced tutor studying Early childhood Education, I love being apart my student's learning process. I am all of my lessons to be fun, engaging, and relaxing. Students will definitely love the laid-back environment I provide. Not only will you have a great time, but you will also be engaged and learn the math content effectively! Part of my lesson includes hands-on activities and visuals that give a great clarification for the material!
I am a graduate of Temple University with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education. I love to have fun and teach (mostly at the same time!), and always want to make sure my students are comfortable.
Math students can expect a fun, engaging environment, with multiple opportunities for growth and many questions. Each student is unique in their own way and I love meeting students where they are, building from there. I like to build off of prior knowledge in order to help them understand more complex ideas. Moreover, relating questions to situations/ideas they are familiar with will help with understanding!
I have experience tutoring and teaching students from ages 2, all the way up to 18! I currently tutor 6th-9th graders on Saturday mornings in History, and I was previously a Math teacher for 5th grade. During the week, I teach Pre-K in a
ll subject areas.
As an educator, I pride myself on making sure my students are confident in their work and reach their fullest potential. Having fun, making sure the students are relaxed, and a comfortable environment are my 3 main goals for each session! My personal passions include Math, special education, and music!
I tutor children from K-5. I like the Singapore math method and experience with common core math from K-5. I am a big believer of Kumon style of math that some facts just simply have to have the repeated practice in order to gain fluency which is very similar to learning another language but I make the learning an enjoyable experience.
I love teaching especially language as I am passionate about language. I also speak Chinese and currently learning Spanish. I have been teaching Japanese about 20 years from the age of 2 to adults. I do not just teach but I also try to give you the culture/background of the Japanese language. I believe that helps for many people to master the vocabulary, listening, writing and speaking. I also have worked with companies of understanding about the business culture in Japan.
I am a former 5th grade teacher specialized in the Texas curriculum. If you were to ask my students what is special about me, they would tell you that I am the MOST PATIENT teacher they have ever had.
I was not the most outstanding math student when I was young, yet I got through calculus class in high school and became a math teacher.
I had been in your shoe when I was little, so I understand how to break concepts down and make things easier to understand.

I am a classically trained pianist and certified elementary school teacher. I graduated from Oakland University with a Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance and Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics..
I believe that every learning experience provides students an opportunity to not only learn a hard skill, like piano and math, but also to learn the soft skills such as time management, discipline and motivation.
My students can expect to improve week to week in their piano or math classes. My goal is not just to teach you how to play piano or to do math. I would like to guide you through the journey of learning and help you explore all the interesting things in music and math.
I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years. I can teach students to read music, improve aural sk
ills and pursue classical excellence. I can also help students to prepare for exams and competition.
I am also an elementary school math tutor specialized in the Texas curriculum. I have taught 5th grade for 2 years, and near 90% of my students passed Math STAAR test despite the fact that the school average was in the 50% range. 90% of my students made growth when I was their Math teacher at school. I can tailor our lessons to meet your needs and prepare you for middle school.
Your growth is my source of happiness. Hire me today to embark this wonderful journey!
