ExperienceI am an established, experienced Math and Chemistry Tutor and Test Prep teacher. I cover elementary school through high school level math, including homeschooling assistance. I hold a Ph.D. in chemistry, and tutor at the high school and introductory college level. Test preparation includes the math/science portions of the SAT, ACT, GMAT, GRE, GED, ASVAB, ISEE, SSAT, TEAS, Praxis and more.
My goal is to connect with the student at THEIR level. We start by going over the fundamentals of the subject, the basics of problem solving and work from there to foster independent thinking. I use varied approaches when the student is "stuck." I am friendly, patient and very persistent. I can assist with classwork and homework, and will assign supplemental work to advance the subject area as needed or desired. My goal - to ultimately work myself out of a job!
For standardized test preparation - we review the most frequently tested concepts, go over proven test taking tips and strategies, and practice exams. Together we develop a strategy that best fits your strengths to the test and minimizes any weakness or anxiety. If a calculator is not allowed - no worries! We go over how to simplify calculations and how to effectively ballpark and estimate. By building skills, we build confidence and maximize your score.
Tutoring is tailored to your needs - single or recurring appointments welcome. I will come to your home, or we can meet in a mutually convenient location, such as a library, coffee shop,... Tutoring at a location no more than 20 minutes drive from the Danbury Fair Mall is at my regular rate of $80/hr. A surcharge MAY apply for further travel, which will be discussed as necessary.
Want to save money on tutoring or test prep? Get together with a few friends. By forming a small group, the friends can encourage and help each other. A group of 2 to 6 students can still provide most benefits of personally individualized teaching, with a discounted price. I also offer a special rate of $60/hr to ASVAB clients - thank you for your commitment. Ask me about these!
I love teaching, and really love seeing students continuing and excelling on their own! Contact me for more information.
In addition to my private tutoring, I have been employed at a private company as a SAT Preparation Teacher, Math.
I volunteer weekly at an adult education center tutoring math, GED test prep and helping applicants with their National External Diploma programs. I also volunteer weekly a middle school school for at-risk boys.
