NYC middle school math teacher with 5+ years of experience offering virtual lessons

Methodology

I am a passionate middle school math teacher. I enjoy the challenge of presenting information in a new way to students who need clarification or a different method to understand. My favorite lessons focus on the applications of the content; I love to answer "why are we learning this?" and revealing how math connects to everyone's passions.

Background

I began my post-university life in the corporate world as an actuary who focused on the real world applications of mathematics. I transitioned to teaching by moving abroad, teaching in both South Korea and Hungary, before returning to the United States. I have spent my last years teaching 5-8 grade, both 8th grade and 9th grade Algebra, to students in NYC. I have also tutored students in all five content levels. This includes exposure to the SHSAT, TACHS, and other NYC high school entrance exams.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $20/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $75
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $140

Details

Rate reductions are available for students who are looking for support with materials (ie: already have class or SHSAT materials and are looking for explanations or help with assignments).

Cancellations are flexible up to two hours in advance.
