Summer

Integrated 2 Preview: June 20th – July 20th, 2022.  Mon/Wed/Fri* at  11:30 am Minimum of 3 students, maximum of 5. $465 for 12 sessions (normally $780 for a 1-on-1 rate), due June 13th, no refunds for missed sessions (sessions can be recorded, however, for viewing at your convenience).  All sessions will be over Zoom for convenience so you can attend even if you’re travelling.  Materials will be shared via Google Drive and will need to be printed out and put in a binder. Purchasing a document camera is highly recommended for optimal learning (Please click on the link to purchase one on my FAQs).

Integrated Math is notorious for teaching many things at one time. On any given problem set, a student can be tasked with showing mastery of up to 10 different concepts spanning Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics. In addition, there are no examples in the book of how to actually approach these concepts and, sometimes, not even direct instruction from teachers as many adopt a “self-discovery”/group-teach model of learning. I aim to take the guesswork out by directly teaching core concepts in a structured, easy-to-understand, replicable manner. This summer preview is by no means comprehensive but will equip incoming Int. 2 students with a strong Algebraic foundation transferable not only to this class but all future math classes. Special emphasis will be placed on 5 ways to solve quadratics, Special Right Triangles, Basic Trigonometry progressions, working with different angles, and formatting dreaded proofs.  This is a fast-paced course, so your child should have earned a minimum of a B 1st semester in Int 1; this is not a fill-in-the-gaps course.  There is 1/2 hour to 1 hour of homework after each class.  This is my fourth year teaching this course and all my former students have done extremely well after taking this course.

Every year like clockwork, I get inundated with new client requests when Int 3A students begin the Trigonometry Section in the Pre-Calculus textbook in January. I understand why…it’s HARD!   Let’s jump ahead of and prevent the frustration!  I’ve designed a course using the scope and sequence and the actual problems they will be encountering in the beginning of the second semester.  This class concentrates on the Precalculus section of the course.  An ounce of prevention goes a loooong way to ensuring success throughout the year.  Plus…if your child can feel confident mastering the hardest part of the class ahead of time, the rest of the class should be smooth sailing.  I will teach this in my typical engaging, high-energy, relaxed and fun manner I’ve been know for.  You’ll also have access to worked out solutions for most of the material in the second semester.  This is a fast-paced course, so your child should have earned a minimum of a B in Int 2; this is not a fill-in-the-gaps course.  This is my third year teaching this course and all my former students have done extremely well after taking this course.  There is 1/2 hour to 1 hour of homework after each class.  Sign up. They won’t regret it.  =D

Calculus AB Preview: Wed, July 6th – Mon, August 1st .  Mon/Wed/Fri at  10:00 am. Calculus can so intimidating but don’t let it be so!  Get a sneak preview so you can approach the highest level of math with confidence.  Taught by the amazing Justin, Calculus Whiz and Teacher Extraordinaire. Minimum of 3 students, maximum of 5. $465 for 12 sessions (normally $780 for a 1-on-1 rate), due June 13th, no refunds for missed sessions (sessions can be recorded, however, for viewing at your convenience).  All sessions will be over Zoom for convenience so you can attend even if you’re travelling.  Materials will be shared via Google Drive and will need to be printed out and put in a binder.

Integrated 1 Preview:  I would be happy to teach an Integrated 1 preview as well, but in the past I haven’t had the demand.  Can you help me round up a minimum of 3 students? If so, I’d be happy to create and teach a course previewing the core topics.

Note: One-on-one tutoring is available to fill in any gaps if the pace of the courses above may be too fast, or for any other class. Just to go to: http://bestbayareamathtutor.com/faq for more details and to answer the questions at the end via email.
