I am a Mathematics PhD student at the University of California with two years of experience as a TA where I run discussions and hold office hours for college level math. I have experience running classes online due to school shut-downs from Covid-19 and in particular want to help students who are struggling for that reason. On top of my experience as a TA, I also have an additional four years of experience as a tutor at the University of Utah and other organizations where I have worked with students from middle school through college.
My success in math was far from immediate. I struggled with math growing up and it was my weakest score on the ACT but I always loved problem solving and the feeling of picking apart a difficult problem and finally coming up with a solution. I chased this feeling all the way through a BS in mathematics and into a PhD and I want more than anything to help other students who struggle with math the feel that joy and to see the beauty in this fascinating subject.
He was patient and did well to explain what I was struggling with in the broader context of what I was learning which had me truly understanding the material and not just memorizing formulas. Also, when I was just not understanding something, he was able to explain it in many different ways until I got it. He was the reason I did well in my class!
I like to begin by having a conversation with the student about how they study math currently. I find that a lot of students struggle because they haven't found a study strategy that works well for them. That's the first thing I like to fix because while they may only speak with me directly for a couple hours every week, developing strong study skills will benefit them all the time.
I hold a BS in Mathematics from the University of Utah and am working on a PhD at the University of California, Riverside where I work as a TA directly with undergraduate math students. On top of that, I have five years of experience as a tutor in various summer programs and tutoring centers.
I charge $30 per hour regardless of the level of math.
I worked at a mathematics tutoring center at the University of Utah as an undergraduate sophomore and I loved it. It's very satisfying to see students come into the center frustrated and disgruntled and leave feeling relieved, excited, and proud of themselves for unraveling the secrets of a difficult problem.
I have worked with students from middle school through college at all levels. In particular, I have plentiful experience with students whose first language is not english.
