About this tutor

Well, I am in the process of getting my bachelor's in Physics Engineering. I have been tutoring math at Front Range Community College for a couple semesters now and realized I'm kinda really good at it.

I've come to realize I not only love math, but also love to tutor others in math. It is wonderful to take a person who knows nothing about the subject they're in, who feels like everything the teacher is saying is Korean, and give them real underlying understanding of the sections- I love seeing that light as everything clicks and they feel confident in themselves and the knowledge they have. And that is why I do this, besides needing to pay rent.

FAQs


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

First session I want to gauge your current level of understanding. Most of the time when students are confused about a class, it is because there are prerequsites that are not fully understood. That is where I normally focus on in the beginning, then move on to the new material that is built on it.


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

Unfortunately do not have a degree yet that gives me a paper to show I can do this. However, I took the classes recently enough and got near perfect scores that the material is still fresh in my mind. Not to mention all the students I have tutored/ am tutoring through the college on these very same subjects.


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

I just charge 20 an hour no matter the material.


How did you get started teaching?

Front Range contacted me if I would like to help other students and I said yes. Best decision I've ever made.


What types of students have you worked with?

College students of every level and age, as well as a few elementary children.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I had a student last semester who could not get a problem right to save her life at the beginning of class. She came in to see me almost every ingle day last semester and by the time finals came around, I barely had to help except to say yes or watch the sign. I saw her already this semester, and I'm so proud of her progress.


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

Don't be afraid to trial run a tutor. Everyone has a different way of explaining the same thing. I've met all sorts of tutors and teachers and a lot of these math people can't relate to normal humans. Sometimes it works out anyway, but often it doesn't.


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

What have I had issues with in the past? Normally there is something else the issue than just radicals. And normally it goes back to a grade school teacher that didn't fully explain something or went too fast through a lesson. All math builds on itself and you see the same concepts in classes over and over.
