Sam L. ...My father started his own tutoring company in Sacramento where he worked with hundreds of different students for a large part of his career. When I told him about my initial interest in math tutoring, he was eager to give me pointers. He taught me how to break down difficult subjects in the bite-sized chunks and identify where students struggled to understand different concepts.

Julian C. ...I have taught both precalculus and SAT Level 2 (which covers similar material). Most of precalculus is about the basic functions: polynomial, rational, trigonometric, and exponential/logarithmic. If you know how these functions look and behave, I've found that most of the subject becomes easier. I also have a strong background in calculus, so I know what the subject is preparing you for.
