Math With Helena
Hello! I am Helena Sanders. I am a junior at The University of Tennessee Knoxville with a concentration in Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering and a grade point average of 3.7. I can tutor students with Physics, Statics, and Mathematics. Being that I am still in school, I understand the challenges that come along with being a full-time student. In addition, this commonplace also aids craft my tutoring style to the way an individual student processes information. I have assisted students in various settings, having worked alongside college professors as well as my high school teachers. Each experience has equipped me with tactics and methods that strengthen my mentor abilities.

I look forward to assisting you! Thank you

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My usual approach when working with a new student is to establish common ground and break the ice! I understand how nerve-wracking it can be to ask for help (especially from a stranger) so I always try to shed some of the awkwardness away so they feel free to ask anything.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am an engineering student with a keen sense of problem-solving. In high school, I was a teacher's assistant for Algebra 2 and AP Calculus for approximately 2 years.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I charge $25 per hour.
How did you get started teaching?
I started tutoring in highschool alongside my teachers.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with traditional, honors, and Advanced Placement students.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
I think transparent questions that directly identify what is causing a bit of confusion is the best way to address their needs. Usually, following the steps/process of the student doing a problem can assist with this.
