I strive to deliver the services that my students need to succeed. Whether that means to carve out time of my busy schedule to be able to meet with them before a test date, or to answer quick questions over the phone. I have been professionally tutoring for over two years. With much time spent in the college setting, I do my best to set up my students for the challenges to come in college. So that when they have to cross those bridges, they will confidently overcome them.
As the old adage goes, "knowledge is power." I very strongly believe this to be true. I love to share my knowledge with others, and to teach them also that knowledge is power so that one day they may do the same.
I have struggled a ton with learning calculus 2 at college. While at college, I visited the on site learning center and worked a lot with Chris. He helped me to not only raise my grades, but also caused me to truly understand the material. He keeps me entertained, engaged, and motivated to learn and study. He is funny and smart. I would recommend him to anyone looking for math help.
I typically spend the first lesson the same with all of my students. I introduce myself, then ask the student what they want to get out of the lesson and figure out where their struggle is. By the end of the first lesson, I generally understand exactly how to help the student the most, so then going forth I will be able to help the student optimally.
I have over two years experience as a professional tutor at the college level. During that time, I had also worked as a supplemental instructor for Calculus 1,2,3 and linear algebra.
I charge $25.00 per hour. I do not deviate from this for any reason.
While I was in college, I was looking for a part-time job. Someone had suggested to me that I work right on campus as a tutor. Already enjoying the subject of math, I figured that it would be cool teaching it. From there, I realized that teaching is something that I would want to do for a very long time.
I have worked with highschool and college students, as well as adult learners that just wanted to learn math. I have worked with autistic students and other special needs students.
My best advice I can give, find a tutor that doesn't teach like a professor would and simply profess abunch of knowledge at you and expect you to understand it all and learn from it. Find a tutor who can teach the subject matter to you, and cause you to not only know the material but also understand to the point that you can teach it to someone else.
Students should ask themselves: "What is it, exactly, that I struggle with in this class?"
