## About

I provide math tutoring in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Calculus (single and multivariable). Having had discipline troubles myself in the past, I can help to develop a study plan as well.

I'm the type of person who actually LIKES word problems.

While I am new to tutoring, I've worked with kids in other arenas (teaching, camp counseling, and childrens theater). Watching the joy on their faces as they FINALLY master a new skill makes me incredibly happy.

## Frequently asked questions

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

Before working with the student, I like to know the topics covered so I can brush up before I arrive. If the student has specific questions, we'll tackle those first. If the issue is studying habits, we can come up with a strategy for success. If it's an issue of understanding, we'll work through homework problems and iron out any kinks. Sometimes I may demonstrate a problem from start to finish.

### What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a Math/Econ undergrad student who has achieved excellent grades in all of my math classes. This semester will begin my junior year.

I have experience teaching and leading children. As a dance teacher, I've taught small children ballet and tap. As a camp counselor, I've led groups of up to 9 teens for two weeks at a time. I enjoy working with all ages!

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

Generally, my rule is about $25/hour, or $15/hour per kid in a group. I sometimes quote a bit more if the drive is long.

### How did you get started teaching?

Simple: my calculus professor offhandedly mentioned that at our level, students could make some good money tutoring! So I've been looking for work over the summer.

### What types of students have you worked with?

Children and teens.

### Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My girlfriend treated me to disneyland for my birthday, and insisted that we get a caricature.

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

Hire someone with good energy. Math can be dull enough by itself at times.

### What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Which parts of the text don't I understand?

Am I misunderstanding, or is it just a calculation error?

Am I studying enough?
