Math And Chemistry Tutor
Hello! I am 23, and currently working on a math and chemistry major. I have tutored people from elementary school to college, in a variety of subjects, but most commonly math.
I love teaching math. Everyone I have tutored thinks about problems in a different way, and I am super passionate about helping people get to a place where math begins feeling intuitive. There is an inherent beauty in math that unfortunately often goes overlooked in our education system. Once you start seeing it, it is hard not to enjoy the subject.
I competed in math competitions throughtout middle and high school, winning regional events and doing well at state wide events. I applied to college with a perfect score in the math section on both the SAT and ACT. My undergraduate studies have mostly revolved around abstract algebra, graph theory, and complex systems analysis.
I have worked with a variety of students, and I most enjoy seeing how individuals think about problems, and how they reach solutions.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My typical process is to ask the student for a selection of their work in the class/subject they are looking for tutoring in. From there, I look to create lessons that help the student discover the reasoning behind the topics they are working on for themselves. It is certainly can be pertinent to explain concepts outright, but whenever possible I like to let students find their own way to work through problems. I've found learning that way to be the most helpful and impactful.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am currently working on math and chemistry majors, and I have been tutoring as a job for 9 years now.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Pricing is negotiable, but I rarely ask for more than $25 an hour.
How did you get started teaching?
My first paid teaching gig was my freshman year in high school. I tutored an older student in exchange for scuba diving lessons from his dad.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with students from elementary school to college, and have experience with both ESL students and students with learning disabilities.
