Being an adolescent math education minor, I am able to implement learning strategies that have been tested and proven to be far more effective than the traditional and outdated "memorize and just-get-it" mindset so many teachers have. Through guided 1-1 tutoring with a focus on finding the best learning method for each student, many seemingly abstract concepts in math and science can be much easier understood, breaking the "phobia" many of us have.

The best part of being a tutor is seeing my students make progress and succeed! When they succeed, I succeed because it's through sharing knowledge and finding the best way each student learns where students reach their full potential.

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

The first step is to analyze how each individual student learns. There are three methods in this form of teaching:

1)Visual (through example problems)

2) Coordinated (step-by-step rules)

3) Audial (hearing and explanation)

The Second Step is to gain a knowledge of what the student knows and seek ways to implement it to a new topic, allowing the learning of a new concept. Math simply is the accumulation of concepts and ideas put into numbers!

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

Most of my training lies in volunteering at "extra-help" centers during my high school and college years. Teaching students in those centers is where I have adopted the skills of mathematical/scientific explanation, reasoning, and analysis.

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

60 minutes: $30-40 (most recommended)

90 minutess: $50-60 (best value)

Variables in price range depend on level of instruction, distance traveled, and frequency of lessons.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching when a friend of mine had a younger sister who needed help with her Algebra I homework. Being a high school Junior at the time, she was my first student at the tutoring center. Her teacher empathized that math was just "memorization and you-get-it-or-you-don't" concepts. Through teaching her to not only break down, but to analyze mathematical problems from their fundamental roots, she began to understand how Algebra worked and how numbers functioned and correlated with one-another.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with adolescent students (2nd - 10th grade). I have tutored basic concepts in math such as how to add, subtract, etc. to high school leveled algebra problems and even some college level statistics. In science, I have tutored basic conceps such as what are solids, liquids, and gases to more advanced topics such as high school biology and anatomy/physiology.

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

The best piece of advice I could ever give is that school material being hard is NOT your fault! Math and science are both extremely cumulative, and if you don't know the fundamental roots of a topic, it proven impossible to understand new information. It's like running; if you are still crawling and you can't walk, how are you supposed to run?

Through hiring me, I will get to examine what you already DO understand and analyze that with you to create further understanding of more advanced topics.

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

1) What's the best way you learn (visual, coordinated, or audial..refer to the question, "What is your typical process for working with a new student".

2) What are some fundamentals of math/science you ALREADY understand

3) Where do you see yourself struggling

4) Why do you think you are struggling
