I've worked with students of all ages and math backgrounds. It doesn't matter if you are a middle school student or a college student. It doesn't matter how good or bad at math you are; I've seen it all, and I CAN help you.
I specialize in versatility within the subjects I tutor. If my students do not understand one explanation, I can provide different perspectives on math subjects that textbooks and teachers often cannot. I excel at showing that math is not nearly as hard as the education system makes it out to be.
I absolutely love teaching and tutoring. I've been passionate about mathematics most of my life. There is no better feeling than when I help someone understand and master a complex topic that he or she was struggling with. There's a certain gleam that students get when that, "aha" moment strikes, and it's the most rewarding thing in the world to see.
Josh is a very patient and understanding tutor who takes the time to ask questions in a non-condescending way about what you do and don’t know in order to more effectively help you grasp different concepts and solve problems. Furthermore, his enthusiasm for the subject kind of rubs off on you and makes you WANT to learn more rather than dread having to figure thinks out. He asks important questions and takes you through problems step by step patiently till you can get to the answer yourself and have the reward of feeling like you actually may not hopeless in the subject.
The first thing I do is get to know the student. Good communication is essential to improve understanding, and that only starts with a good introduction. Then, I establish background knowledge, what specifically the student is struggling with, and why he or she is struggling. I then work to clarify topics and concepts and improve mathematical understanding.
Currently, I'm a math major in college. During the school year, I work at the school's tutoring center. There, I tutor everything from prealgebra to multivariable calculus, and I work with students of all age ranges. I get students asking for me specifically, and won't work with any of the other tutors available.
I also have my own private tutoring service.
My students are guaranteed to have their grades raised by AT LEAST one letter after working with me.
My standard rate is 40$ per hour. However, I charge 50$ per hour for clients for whom I have to make a significant commute. This is anywhere outside of a 20-minute drive from my location.
I began my teaching career by volunteering at my college's tutoring center. I fell in love with tutoring instantly. I started spending all of my free time there, working with students, and improving grades and understanding.
Today, I know that teaching is what I want to do for my career, and I look forward to working with you.
I've worked with all ranges of students. This includes elementary school, middle school, high school, and college students. I've also worked with all levels of proficiency in math. No matter how naturally good or bad at the subject you might be, I can work with you, and your abilities WILL improve.
While working at my college's tutoring center in Spring semester of 2018, I had two students come in every day for help with MATH 095, which is equivalent to prealgebra. They were clearly struggling and worried that they would never pass that class. Through my teaching methods, they both aced their final exams and the class. It was really incredible to see their improvements over the course of the semester. When they started, neither of them could multiply 6x7 in without a calculator. By the end of the semester, they didn't even need a calculator anymore. I was so proud of them.
Most of the time, when a student is struggling in math, it's because he/she is having a hard time understanding the teachers or the textbooks. When selecting a tutor, make sure that he can explain and demonstrate ideas in multiple different ways. Also, make sure that the tutor doesn't JUST to go through problems like a computer. Make sure he explains the problems and concepts to you on a much deeper level that you would normally expect. When paying for a tutor, you should not only expect him to go through problems with you, but to also give you a much more thorough understanding of mathematics.
