# Grove Tutoring Service

## About

I absolutely love mathematics and teaching people about its applications. From arithmetic to Calculus, the understanding of mathematics from an applicable perspective is the greatest tool I could possibly give anyone.

I studied Physics at Tulsa Community College, and the University of Oklahoma, I have also been a science/research lead for NASA-overseen projects.

## Frequently asked questions

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

The first step in helping a new student is learning what they know, what they know that they don't know, and what they don't know what they don't know. After that, we teach what they know that they don't know, by drawing inspiration and knowledge from what they know. After that, what they don't know comes to light.

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

I studied Physics at the University of Oklahoma, which is essentially applied mathematics.

I've also utilized applied mathematics working through soil chemistry for a farm, and I've been the science/research lead for NASA-overseen projects to attempt to find water on Mars.

### How did you get started teaching?

I've had a knack for it for a while, because I love seeing people learn, and I love mathematics. It started with teaching my classmates in sophomore year because our trigonometry teacher was notoriously confusing.

### What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with students from 3rd grade to Freshman year of college

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

Find someone who will speak your language! Mathematics can be confusing, because it's a language all it's own. If you were to study Spaniard spanish and then go to Mexico, you may find yourself confused. Likewise, if you're someone who learns by applicable example and your tutor only covers the abstract, you may find yourself confused as well!

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

"When will I ever use this in my life?"

It is possibly the most important question you can ever ask in regards to mathematics. If you can't find an application for it, then it's essentially useless for you to know. (But I can guarantee that I will be able to find real-world applications!)
