EducationI have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from MIT and attended Cambridge University in the UK for one year. I also attended a Princeton summer program in Geometry for mathematics majors.
As a mathematics major, I gained a broad understanding of mathematics which has proven useful for both tutoring and for a profession as a developer!
ExperienceHi! My name is Joel and I graduated from MIT in 2010. I love studying and explaining mathematics. I actually enjoy math SO much, that I dedicated four years to learning all about it. Now I can pass the knowledge on to you!
I have designed lesson plans that range from one-day study sessions to long term course help or SAT prep. Before and after each lesson, I ask myself which topics have been difficult for the student and come prepared with a better method to teach and reinforce the ideas. Once a student understand a concept, practice makes perfect! Oftentimes my sessions are problem solving based, where the student will attempt problems while I provide guidance.
I can be your tutor for absolutely any mathematics subject, including standardized test prep. For the SAT, I prefer to tutor in the Quantitative section (you might have guessed), though I can tutor for the entire exam as well. I have read numerous study guides for the SAT and am well acquainted with the concepts and strategies that are useful for 700+ scores.
I would love to help you with your Algebra, Geometry, Trig, Pre-Calc, Calculus, SAT, ACT, SAT Math I and II, Linear Algebra, Probability, Statistics, Differential Equations. You name it!
(I also have professional experience with MATLAB, Python, Excel, and Microsoft Access if you are looking for help there.)
HobbiesI began traveling when I studied abroad in the UK, and my travels have exploded since then. My last journey was 6 months through South America. I speak some Spanish and enjoy practicing.
I also enjoy folk, bluegrass, and many types of music. I have played guitar most of my life and have recently picked up Banjo.
And, of course, math!
