Introduction: I specialize in high school and college level math, especially calculus and statistics. I have taught math in the classroom at the college level for many years, but I have always preferred to one-on-one personal mentoring of students with private tutoring sessions. I have coached thousands of students, yound and old, over the years to maximize their performance in math courses, learn what was necessary, and feel good about their accomplishment.
I participated in the writing of a study guide for Calculus by James Stewart, one of the most widely used calculus and pre-calculus textbooks in colleges today. In addition to this text, I have recently worked closely with students taking courses at Yale, MIT, NYU, Rutgers, Notre Dame, SMU, SUNY New Paltz, SUNY Buffalo, RPI, University of Pennsylvania, Penn State, University of Michigan, Marist, Vassar, Mount Saint Mary, and Dutchess Community College and am very familiar with their programs. There have been many other colleges over the years, and I feel highly confident that I could help anyone taking calculus, statistics, pre-calculus, geometry, differential equations, linear algebra, proofs, algebra or nearly any college or high school math course.
I am very familiar with the current Regents exam requirements for New York State, and have been helping students pass the Regents for literally decades. (I know that makes me old, I'm really not that old!)
I balance private tutoring with several other businesses to avoid burn out. When I meet with students, I enjoy being a part of their journey through the course. I love that I make a difference!
I help students using Zoom conferencing. I know that we all know about Zoom in light of current events, but not all Zoom meetings are the same. I have been using Zoom to teach online for quite a few years because there has been a demand for qualified statistics teachers that isn’t met at most local levels. I have taken hundreds of students though college statistics programs across the country. I have helped failing students and students who thought they were hopeless. I do this as my full-time job. There is a certain kind of experience gained from working with individuals that gives me insight into learning that classroom teachers don’t have time to explore. Very few tutors will have the experience I have. I know most college statistics courses inside and out. We can jump right in and get down to business with very little wasted time and energy.
With a Zoom conference, each session is a focused, intensive, productive learning session. There is no distraction. I have learned how to share ideas and make students be accountable for information by discussing ideas verbally. This is an often overlooked skill.
I offer a free introductory session and would love to show you what we can do together. There would be no obligation, so even if you don’t choose to work with me you would know what your options are and have a basis when shopping for a tutor.
