About this tutor

Here at Rooted University, we understand that teaching is also learning.  Each student will be different in his or her own way. We achieve success in teaching simply by searching for the psycological understanding with student. Students take in what they can relate to much simpler than methods they are not familiar with. Learning before we teach is what makes us stand out. 

I love to help others learn. In all actuality, I love to learn about others and help them come to a solution. The transformation of energy and education are my interests.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, we learn about the student.

What level of understanding does the student truly have?

What interest them?

What are their habits, weaknesses, strengths?

This helps us gain an idea of how to teach the student.

I have provided math tutoring to multiple children in Mesa, Queen Creek, Laveen, and Phoenix. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yes, my standard pricing is $20 per hour. 


How did you get started teaching?

I began my journey as a tutor in the 5th grade. My parents were math teachers with Master Degrees. Their number one rule was that I finished homework BEFORE going out to play with friends. Eager to play, I did what was necessary. I found a way to make math fun, so that I could not only get it done correctly but also get it done quicker. During summers, my dad would bring me to his 8th grade summer school classes, where I found a passion for helping others learn. This passion follows me to this day. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught elementary, middle, high school, and college students. Encouraging them to perservere is super important with any any student. However, with the older students, I find that some want to be perfect and get all anwers correct. They tend to be so hard on themselves mentally, when they find a math problem difficult. I inform them that there is no such thing as a bad decision. If you make a bad decision, you can always learn from it and fix the mistakes. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I taught my 7 year old daughter about decisions. In the lesson, we discussed how if you are not sure of what the right answer is, do not hesitate to make an attempt. By trying we can work together to identify where you made a mistake and help you find out HOW to get the correct answer. Initially, our focus is not getting the correct answer. Our focus is on the formula or procedure which helps us learn HOW to get the correct answer. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Math is everywhere around us. It does not fade away once you graduate high school. Don't be afraid to fail. One of my favorite quotes come from Bruce Lee. It says "Do not fear failure. Not failure but low aim is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to have failed." To me, this means that we have to try in order to learn from mistakes. Do not be afraid to take try. By trying, we can identify where you went wrong and help correct the mistake so that in due time you will be able to solve math problem withe ease.
