Mathematics

Mathematics – from high school math to graduate school math – is one of our most frequently requested subjects. Teaching math is notoriously difficult and we maintain a staff of mathematicians who are committed to the art of teaching. There is no course or standardized test that we do not have extensive experience teaching. We work with students who loathe math and students who love it, students who haven’t done math in a decade and students who work on mathematical problems every day. Many of our students work with tutors to address courses or exams – such as Geometry, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations – but we also work with students looking to explore more advanced or unconventional topics (like the mathematics of poker, or algrabraic topology, for example).

Popular Subjects: Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Finite Math, Precalculus, Calculus (Differential, Integral, Multivariable), Linear Algebra, Probability, Discrete Math
Tests: AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, SAT II Math I, SAT II Math II, Mathematics GRE Subject Test
