Math, English, and Test Prep Tutoring (SAT, GRE, and TOEFL)

I specialize in tutoring math and English for school and the SAT, GRE and TOEFL exams. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. I also keep a record of what we have done for each class.
My students improve greater than 150 points on average once they can master the main concepts. Many of them have gone on to attend top universities around the world.

So far the experience on apprentus and the teacher I met is nice!
I am a native German speaker and can teach A1 to C1 level. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. You will learn important and also interesting study strategies that will help you improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing. I usually assign homework after every lesson and keep a record of what we've done and will do for the next lesson. My quizzes and tests will keep you focused on your goal and not a source of discouragement.
I specialize in tutoring and preparing Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus AB+BC for the AP and also the IB exam. My goal is to improve problem solving ability of each of my students and also to increase their long term memory retention of learning materials. I assign homework after every session, schedule periodic review sessions and quizzes, and provide succinct progress reports. I have many satisfied students, many of which have gone on to attend top universities around the world.

Leila (Shamira)
SAT, SAT Math 1, SAT Math 2, GMAT, GRE, GRE Math 1 and 2
Dear students and parents, I am an enthusiastic and hard-working multilingual (English, Russian, Turkish, Azerbaijani) Math and Statistics educator and Data Analyst with 12 years of teaching and 16 years of research experience in an international environment. Focused on an outcome-based approach to the progress and deadline-oriented. I usually hear from parents, that I make their kids to love math, and it makes me the happiest teacher. First, as a Math Teacher, my main aim is to encourage students to analyze the problem carefully and find different solutions for one question. This method helps students to choose the easiest way of solution for her/him during the exam and finish it in time. I teach students both ways how to solve questions without a calculator with math tricks, and how to use a calculator more effectively. As you know in the exam there might be non-calculator and calculator papers. Moreover, this ability helps students not only to understand the math subject deeply but also will be very helpful during their adult life. Having teaching experience (Math and Statistics) in one of the top universities of the US (UW-Madison) helped me clearly to see the path of a student from the school bench to the university auditorium. Only by working in both school and university, you can understand what is better to learn for a student to be helpful in the future university years and how to show the connection between the math of SAT and the math of the university level. Years of hands-on work experience and a keen interest in Math teaching as a profession (in both school and university), a deep understanding of the connection between the school and university Math have prepared me well to see strengths and weaknesses of the student and how to use that strong side of a student to improve the gaps that student earned in her/his earlier years. Therefore, I believe that all these experiences will help me smoothly rise the level of my students and succeed in their future life. Sincerely, Leila

SAT Math(Algebra, Data Analysis, Advanced Math) Preparation with Experienced Teacher
Hi everyone! I have been teaching private courses in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics for 9 years. It is my passion to prepare my students for the future with school and exam studies. When I won the Anatolian Teacher High School in Istanbul in 2008 and Boğaziçi University in 2012, my biggest goal was to be a reliable role model for my students in the future. I am very happy that I have now made this dream come true since the year I entered university. Until this time, I have taught private lessons at secondary, high school and university level to numerous students from Turkey and abroad. I still continue to give private lessons on the online platform and teach Physics at an International School in Istanbul where California Education Standards (Cognia) are adopted. It is my passion to prepare my students for the future with school and exam studies. I am currently teaching for SAT Exam Preparation. SAT Subject Tests includes Physics, Math, Chemistry and Biology. I can teach both IB and American Curriculum as well. I teach my lessons on Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Classroom, depending on the student' request. Inquiry Based Learning which I have adopted as a teaching method; it enables me to teach lessons based on inquiry and always keeping the student & teacher dialogue dynamic. I strive to progress depending on the age and level of the student. For this, I aim to explain myself, the way I study and understand my student's expectations and level. After the level has been determined, it is of great importance for me that the student knows the lesson plan and draft as well and adheres to the jointly agreed schedule. I share pdfs and documents that I have prepared before the class and use the books by Pearson, Serway, Nowicki, Sarquis and so on for University & Secondary School Level. For Middle School, I use HMH Science Modules etc. I do emphasize the importance on giving homework/assignment and return as giving ''feedforwards'' for my students. As someone in love with her job, it is my greatest motivation to direct the students to professions they can do with love. In this course, you will able to learn following topics: 1. Heart of Algebra Analyzing and fluently solving equations and systems of equations; creating expressions, equations, and inequalities to represent relationships between quantities and to solve problems; rearranging and interpreting formulas. 2. Problem Solving and Data Analysis Creating and analyzing relationships using ratios, proportions, percentages, and units; describing relationships shown graphically; summarizing qualitative and quantitative data. 3. Passport to Advanced Math Rewriting expressions using their structure; creating, analyzing, and fluently solving quadratic and higher-order equations; purposefully manipulating polynomials to solve problems. 4.Additional Topics in Math Making area and volume calculations in context; investigating lines, angles, triangles, and circles using theorems; and working with trigonometric functions

Mathematics class for beginners (elementary school), high school students and GRE test mathematics
I can teach you mathematics - basics or advanced. I also can prepare you for GRE test. Math is all about practise and good teachers, so if you have both that should not be a problem for you. I have always been excellent in math and I really like it and I would like to help people. I can solve different type of problems and help you to understand it better. Math is mostly just practicing, but if you have a good teachers, as I had, then you can save a lot of time in that way.
