Math Tutoring With Aidan
I am someone who loves the beauty in learning. I know that not everyone has this same passion and I work to meet students where they are to help them grow in a fun and rewarding environment.
I love helping students understand mathematics. My favorite part is when it clicks and they feel confident in their abilities.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I like to start to get to know the student by asking questions about their interests, where they need help, and if they have any particular learning styles they like best.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics. I loved working with other students throughout college and worked as a Math Department grader for several professors.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Do I understand what the problem/assignment is asking? Can I follow along with the examples? Is there a particular spot I get confused or do I feel totally lost? Does one type of learning technique work better for me that could help me understand?
I think asking questions, being curious, and vocalizing needs is a brave way to demonstrate that a student's learning is important to them.
