Astrophysics student offering math tutoring in Los Angeles with two years experience

Methodology

The approach I take to tutoring always starts with asking questions and going through examples with the student in whatever topic they are having trouble with to gauge how much they understand, and then provide more in depth problems for them to go through and ask me questions as we go through the problems. I like to reserve at least 10 - 15 minutes at the end to answer any homework questions the student might be struggling with, or, if their homework is a big concern then I’ll use some of their homework problems as practice problems that we go through together.

Background

I have spent the past two years tutoring Precalculus and Calculus, and I’ve worked with students from every academic background from different majors to different experiences with math. In my current job, I work as a group tutor with students who all have varying degrees of understanding of class topics - from those who just need some reassurance that they know what to do, to students who hate math with all of their being and are only learning it because they have to - and I work to approach concepts from different perspectives to benefit all of the students equally.
