"Tutor Available for Math and Sciences"
An important goal of any mathematics program is to develop a student's ability to solve problems. I first assure the student has the required arithmetic skills (i.e. manipulation of real and rational numbers, fractions, exponents, radicals) and then I focus heavily on solving word problems, which are at the core of Algebra 1.

Maryanne achieved in a mere hour exactly what I was looking to learn. She had presented me a schedule via e-mail ahead of time, broken down into the facets of what she was to present. I found that very helpful- and professional. She was patient with my questions and completely prepared for the tutorial. She was punctual, gracious and very knowledgeable of the material. I would recommend her highly.

During my undergrad studies at SUNY Albany I was asked to tutor based on my academic success in the general chemistry course.

I worked with students in groups or in one on one sessions, covering material, reviewing for exams, and even helped with homework and labs.
As a tutor/mentor, I was able to instruct students in various Pre-Med subjects as well as provide guid... ... More
