Experienced online tutor offering interactive, individualized lessons in mathematics. Received academic awards and honors, and a 5 on the AP Calculus Exam. Working towards a degree in mathematics ed.

Methodology

I am committed to delivering high-quality, individualized instruction. For math tutoring, I assess students' knowledge of math concepts and problem-solving strategies, then I prepare individualized lessons. The lessons that I use incorporate visuals and problem-solving strategies, and before the tutoring session is over, I ensure that the students are understanding the concepts of math and are applying problem-solving strategies correctly. So, I ask students questions, and provide clarification and additional examples, if needed. I engage students’ curiosity by encouraging and guiding them to figure out alternative ways to solve a problem. Assistance and support is given to the students with their homework when needed. And I provide opportunities for them to practice and strengthen their math skills, using an interactive and engaging format.

We cover the topics in their homework, and additional exercises and activities are provided to ensure that they understand the concepts. Students work on word problems that incorporate storytelling to make connections to real-world problems, and they use different methods to solve problems. We cover math topics that the students are currently studying this school year, and focus on those which they need more work on. Enlightening ways of conceptualizing math concepts, from sources such as the book The Joy of X, are included during the course of the tutoring.

Background

Presently, I am working towards earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics Education at Western Governors University. I have successfully completed over 100 college credits, including undergraduate-level software engineering courses at Oregon Institute of Technology.

Currently, I am tutoring elementary and middle school students in math and reading. In addition to tutoring online, I held an instructional assistant position as a volunteer at a local elementary school. My passion for helping others and learning new things gives me purpose and motivation. That is a reason for why I am committed to instilling in students a love for learning. Math is my favorite subject to tutor. I explain difficult math concepts clearly by incorporating visual representations, and I engage students' curiosity by encouraging and guiding them to figure out alternative ways to solve a problem.
