I am a certified math teacher with several years experience in middle-school and high-school. I can help you with your Geometry, Algebra 1 or 2, Pre-Algebra, and other courses, and with your standardized-test preparation.
Did you just get your grades for the term? Disappointed with your math scores? I can help you fill in missing material and firm up what you are shaky on — and, ideally, pre-teach the material. Then you will be able to follow what is going on, participate in the lesson, and be able to get out of the class what the teacher hopes and expects that you will. It's much better to know what is going on than to be lost for the hour, struggle with the homework, and rely on a tutor to help make sense of it all!
Will you be taking the SAT, ACT, or GMAT soon? My approach recognizes that these exams test both math knowledge and also the additional skill of taking a test, so I fill in the math skills and topics that you are missing or shaky on and also show you various techniques for cracking problems.
I have been meeting students in libraries (the New Haven main library has private study rooms!), at Panera Bread, and even at Starbuck's.

A great first session. Sophie left feeling confident and ready to take on more geometry. Thanks for the boost.
