Experienced Mathematics Tutor at Stony Brook University

Tutor Information


Hi, my name is Dora and I want to spread the knowledge that has given me success in my life! I have three years (and counting) of tutoring experience in mathematics. My first year of experience I taught primarily math subjects to middle and high school students in my hometown. For two years I was a mathematics tutor for the athletics program at Stony Brook University. I am in my senior year at Stony Brook, pursuing a bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics and Statistics. Do you or your child ever get frustrated when math suddenly loses its meaning and just becomes a bunch of letters? My teaching helps by focusing on understanding the underlying concepts instead of trying to memorize everything. Not only do students have a deeper understanding of the material, but it has been shown to be a more effective way to learn. That means less time studying! I find it rewarding to show students their capabilities and enjoy sharing my passion for math with them. My specialties are: - Algebra I - Algebra II - Pre-Calculus - Calculus AB - Calculus I - Calculus II but I teach all math subjects for middle school and high school students. I am patient, flexible, good with kids and I really want to make a difference for my students. Feel free to reach out with questions or to schedule a lesson.
