When I teach, I give real-world examples, problem solving tools, and explain and work hands-on with concepts. I’ve worked with students on math from elementary through high school, improving homework, exam grades, and standardized test results. I've also designed STEM curricula with the NYC Department of Environmental Protection.

I customize my teaching style to each student’s needs and skill level, and I push students to do their best and pursue their dreams. I love teaching, and I’ve taught at debate camps and a learning center for math. I helped a student go from C/D grades to an A average when I taught him Algebra 2 by assessing and clarifying specific gaps in his knowledge.

Witnessing students grow their confidence and discover new interests is my favorite part of tutoring. When it comes to math, I use an individualized approach and enjoy getting to know the ways of learning that work best for each student. I prioritize motivating and relating to my students by framing the content in an engaging manner.

They teach what’s appropriate for students’ age and level
Our Math tutors use different strategies when teaching students of different age levels. For example, for elementary schoolers, learning to grasp the reading comprehension of word problems is just as important as understanding math concepts. In addition, a high level of care, patience, and playful examples and games are required to help elementary students learn basic concepts. Gooroo tutors provide just that, and they’ll help parents understand exactly what their child is struggling with. One tutor even brought a student to a community garden to do some planting during a session to help him learn a concept! For middle and high schoolers, this skill of diagnosing issues continues to be important, and test-taking strategies are gradually introduced.
They clarify the necessity and importance of concepts
Gooroo tutors who teach math know how to distill and communicate complex mathematical concepts to students, regardless of their learning goals. Our tutors seek to show examples of problems that convincingly require math, thus demonstrating its worth and necessity (and fun!).
They explain the reasoning behind the equations and formulae
It’s easy to get lost in all the memorization of formulae, proofs, figures, and theorems in math. Instead, our tutors encourage students to understand what makes them tick, to ask questions like: what is the structure of the arguments? What are the main steps, and how do the details flow from those steps? What technical tricks recur? What conditions necessary? Through thorough examination and surfacing the principles behind the equation or rule, our tutors help students understand them and work through discouragement.

Gooroo is such a blessing, since I cannot usually help my son with math. The tutor identified the issues my son was having and areas he was struggling in during his first session. I listened in a little and I’m so happy with how our Gooroo tutor interacts with him!
