I am a college graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a minor in Computer Science. I have been tutoring students anywhere between the ages of 5 and 18 in math topics ranging between numerical fluency (basic addition and subtraction) and calculus. I have tutored for the last 3 1/2 years at Mathnasium and have worked with students mostly one-on-one in-person or remotely online.
I understand that math is not everyone's favorite topic and have worked with students from many different backgrounds including those who dislike math and those who love it. I know how to explain things in a way such that I build up from previous knowledge and do not rush for understanding of a topic before building a foundation first to make understanding of future topics easier.
I love being able to work with someone and make things click for them. This is why I have found great satisfaction in math tutoring. I take my time and try to approach problems from different angles in order to maximize comprehension. Not only do I want to reach the goals of my students, I want to go above and beyond and truly get them to recognize and appreciate what is happening in a way that they can benefit the greatest and leave a session feeling fulfilled rather than frustrated.
