I'm very personable and try to come up with different perspectives on problems to help students understand what they need to know. I like to go at the speed of the student to know they're understanding the material. I'll do what I can to cater to how you learn or what works best for you.
I took BC Calc in high school and got 5s on all practice exams and the real exam. I took discrete math, algorithms, linear algebra, statistics, and calculus in college as well. I have a degree in computer science from the University of Georgia.
I love helping people understand new concepts! I love sharing my passion for math and calculus. If I can help someone get a better grade I'm happy to have helped.
My grandson likes his tutor.
I'll start a session or correspondence with attempts to know what the students material is and what the student needs from me. With those two nailed down, I like to start off with seeing what concepts the student knows best, and which ones they need the most work on. If general practice is needed for an upcoming test, I'd like to come up with practice problems for students to perform and see how basic concepts apply to simplified problems. We can then work up to more complex problems that deal with multiple concepts at once.
I have tutored coworkers in algebra and trigonometry. I love working on math problems every so often at home to just keep my mind sharp. Sudoku and other mental math games are fun, and I also enjoy reading about the concepts of math applying to all walks of life: biology, game theory, music, architecture, beauty.
I charge $10/session for the first session and then $15/session after that; each session should probably last 45min - 60min based on what we are trying to achieve.
Do you know the topics of your problem areas? Are there specific problems that you wish you could understand more? Take note of what you are good at and do well, and what you would like to improve, and optionally what areas you do not really want to focus on.
