Private Math Teacher
I have been helping others learn math for seven years 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.

Private Math Teacher
I am an MIT tutor specializing in math and science, and I have taught math anywhere between pre-algebra and calculus for 5 years. I have received perfect scores on both SAT Math, ACT Math, and SAT Math Level 2 (SAT Subject Test). I have taken AP Calculus BC while in high school, and I have taken Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations at MIT, and I actively participated in many math competitions through elementary, middle, and high schools.
Before the lessons, I like to talk with parents, students, and/or teachers to fully gauge what they have been struggling with and how to best help them. Then I identify the student's gap in knowledge while helping them complete their homework and give them additional drilling problems as needed to help them fully master the materials and do well on their tests. I always carry around books containing extra problems depending on the students' levels and goals.
Since geometry questions, especially proofs, are not very obvious, I often ...

I love math. With over 2500 hours of math tutoring experience, I've helped countless elementary school, middle school and high school students get better grades, strengthen their math skills, and build a bridge over a subject that will help them their entire lives. College and university students who've worked with me, as well as working adults, have succeeded in their classes and moved forward toward their futures, feeling more confident and better prepared for using math in real life application. Test prep is another area where I can help with math, using concept review, strategy and time management to help students maximize scores in math sections.

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 ma
tches, 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.
