Private Math Teacher
While in college, I tutored students in various Math course ranging from Calculus to Linear Algebra. My students went on to get a deep understanding of the subject material and did very well in the classes I tutored them in. I believe for a student to learn, it takes effort on both the student's part and the teacher's. I take my time to fully understand what the student's weaknesses are and how to approach them while instilling confidence in the student.

I have been helping others learn math for four years now, and I enjoy watching it click for others just as much as I enjoyed it when math first began to make sense to me. From experience, I know that mathematics can be very easy, or seemingly impossible to learn depending on how the information and concepts are presented. Whether you need help with fractions, factoring polynomials, trigonometric identities, solving triple integrals or anything in between, I can break everything down to first principles, and help you attain that deep understanding of the concepts that will get you that A on your next test.

Alex was everything I needed in a tutor."
Last time I studied math was 20+ years. I am 40 years old and about to finish my second degree CRJ, and like many others I left math class at the end. Taking the math prep test (which I failed) placed me almost in kindergarten..Lol! and I knew I needed help to relearn math. I am so happy Colin answered my request (I sent 15 requests, and only 2 teachers answered). I wanted to start eating the study guide provided by CSN and just focus on the topics, but Colin wanted to show me the "why we have numbers, type of numbers, etc" definitely I wanted to fly before I could walk, and I am so grateful he had a different plan............because IT MAKE SENSE!
I mentioned I prefered to have a lobotomy (siks!) instead of facing math in my 40's because I never had a chance to understand math, I just digested the fact I was going to fail and obtain an "s" for grade. I am looking forward to like, learn, and comprehend math with Colin's help so I can graduate in December 2018.
Thanks Colin :)"

Math has a bad reputation. Many believe it to be a challenging, dry subject that requires lots of hard work and effort to understand. While succeeding and even excelling in math class might take some serious study time, learning it is well worth the effort. If you've ever sat in math class, wondering if you'll ever use what you're learning in the real world, the answer is emphatically, "Yes!"
Some level of math is important and applicable to almost everyone. Math couldn't be more important to our daily lives — from baking a pie, making a household budget, and understanding how interest accrues on a credit card or home loan to designing bridges, building powerful engines, and coding the algorithms responsible for the machine learning that improves Google searches, online dating matches, and more.
Studying mathematics will set you up for success in any industry that interests you. Having a strong mathematics background is essential for anyone interested in pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics.
Why Seek Math Help?
Does your homework take longer than normal (and not due to more assignments) or do you need more assistance than your math teacher or other usual resources can provide? Have you suddenly noticed that you enjoy math class less than you used to or feel like your grades and test scores don't reflect your hard work? If you're experiencing any of these issues or finding it difficult to focus on math like you used to, then you could benefit greatly from working with a private math tutor.
With private tutoring, you can ease the transition between schools or grade levels, prepare for an important standardized test, work through concepts that you've had a difficult time grasping, or stay motivated by learning new, challenging topics. Whether you want to learn math for your own interest, to gain confidence in class, to improve your grades and test scores, or to start working toward a career in a STEM industry, then studying with a private tutor can help you achieve your goals.
The Best Way to Learn Math and What You'll Study with Your Math Tutor
Although it's easy to find free math lessons and study guides online, the best way to learn is with a private teacher. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention, immediate feedback, and personalized instruction that's not available online or in a larger classroom setting. You can spend as much or as little time as you need on a specific topic to learn at the pace that's right for you.
Plus, every private lesson is different. For example, math lessons for kids differ in terms of teaching methods and course content from math classes for adults. You'll stay motivated, interested, and make the most of your study time, while learning with a private math teacher.
Sample Curriculum for Beginner Math
Beginner math tutoring is generally intended for students who are at a grade school level of mathematics. This can range anywhere from learning the absolute basics of numbers, counting, and simple arithmetic to introductory algebra and geometry. Your teacher will customize lessons to your current learning level. You might study the following topics:
 Counting and place value
 Addition and subtraction

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Math
Intermediate mathematics is typically considered high school level math.

You'll build on the basics and begin tackling more complex topics, functions, and concepts. Your intermediate teacher might cover the following topics:
 Algebra
