I work with a diverse population of students, both STEM and non-STEM. I have learned to personalize my instruction based on the current level of the student, from elementary school up to Master's degree.
Both my undergraduate and graduate education put a strong emphasis on proof-based mathematics. In my education, I strive to understand the "why" behind the solution to a problem, rather than the "how".
I also understand that other students would prefer the "how", rather than the "why". In my instruction, I strive to understand how I can bridge the "how" with the "why" in a manner that is efficient, beneficial, and comfortable for the student.
I start out by asking questions that allow me to get an understanding of the student's comfort-level with mathematics, as well as their preferred approach to learning. I work with a very diverse set of students in a large range of topics. Some people love math and want a deeper understanding, while others are required to pass a class. I incorporate this into how I tutor.
I have a master's in pure math, and I work as an adjunct mathematics instructor. I also worked as a tutor in a university math learning center during my graduate studies.
For now I charge 35 dollars an hour.
I love higher mathematics and enjoy working with others to build understanding of theory and applications.
Elementary school, high school, undergraduate, and master's level.
I will precede this by saying that I went up to multivariable calculus in high school, so that's where I started in undergrad. I am teaching university pre-calculus, and I have not worked with some of the topics since sophomore year of high school. It's been so exciting to build the material from scratch and to expand on how I was taught the course topics 11 years ago.
Look for someone that can change their teaching style to meet your needs. I work with first year undergraduates that hate math and just want to get through it, as well as seasoned graduates that are doing research in advanced mathematical theory. The language and approaches to problems should change between individual students.
