I just moved here. So, I am starting cheap ($20/hr) to fill up my schedule. I'm pretty sure it is the cheapest rate around. I am a mathematical physics researcher (with degrees in both math and physics). I have been tutoring for 20 years. I tutor almost all undergraduate math and physics classes and some graduate courses.
I am patient, creative and friendly. Many of my students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. In addition to teaching in person, I also use Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Appear.in, interactive whiteboards, attachments (PDF, Word, Excel), and Slack, a remote desktop program.
My method of teaching is to build a foundation from the basic fundamentals and then supplement it with substantial problem solving. This helps in retaining the concepts as well as improving the speed. I am a certified Vedic Math trainer and have been helping students preparing for Aptitude Tests with some special Vedic Math techniques to enhance problem solving speed and mental agility.
Using supplemental information (to be used before, between and during coordinated sessions), real world applications and direct review of subject matter of interest, I work towards putting "action plans" together to help students gain the level of results needed in their course activities.
I believe that, frequently, amazing goals can be achieved by students. I work exceptionally hard in preparing my lessons. I believe in my students' abilities to succeed. Therefore, I research presentations that are logically explained and worthy of their true potential. I am kind and patient.
My teaching methodology is one that allows students to be themselves, engage in relatable content and lessons, find and strengthen their unique skills, and have fun at the same time.
First off I use a very patient teaching method. Not every student will understand after the first try. There is a lot of practice involved, but by the end of the lesson the student will be better at math in some way. No problem will go unsolved.
My methods are very straightforward as I base everything on how useful or practical it can or will be in everyday life or in the student's future. In Math, it always helps a student to really understand something when they know what the point to all those numbers and equations really is before they dive into a subject.
After receiving my help, all my former students received either an "A" in the subject they were struggling with or boosted their grade by at least 2 grade levels. I have also helped students earn admission to the colleges of their choice by assisting with admissions essays.
I use the Socratic method of teaching in the classroom. The majority of my students are taking high school or college mathematics courses. I place a lot of emphasis on guiding students to a correct solution by asking appropriate questions as the student attempts to solve a problem.
My teaching methodology varies from person to person but always starts with first idenitifying eactly what you are having the most trouble understanding. This is extremely important; because, each and every person has their own thought process and background. I will then tailor explanations and examples to your specific needs.
Mathematicians (like other abstract sciences) usually teach their subjects as if they were originally created in a abstract sense and in order to learn the material it has to be taught in a abstract sense. I believe only with concrete examples can the material truly be learnt.
I always start with the positive: What does the student enjoy? What works well? What are their interests? If a student enjoys basketball, I’ll find or create some games that incorporate basketball. It is my goal to prevent students from feeling like this is just another class that they have to endure. I help them see that learning can be fun.
Most people would be very surprised by my more relaxed structure of teaching. I generally ask students to show up to a lesson with specific homework assignments, past tests, or a review sheet for a future test, and from there I will gauge how strong they are on every topic.
I have a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University and am a current PhD student at MIT and Harvard Medical School studying Medical Engineering. I have several years experiences tutoring in calculus, physics, and chemistry. I like to have students work on practice problems to prepare for homework and tests.
I am a fun and straight forward tutor. I like to make learning fun by using real life situations and visuals. I base my instruction on what I have learned through the years and on my students way of learning.
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.
One teaching method that I think is very effective is showing a problem in a different way and allowing the student to think through it themselves so that they can begin to understand more fully the concepts behind it. I don't like telling students what to do, rather I want them to struggle a little bit while I guide them through the various concepts in math and science.
I am friendly, patient, and easy-going. I take sessions at a relaxed and comfortable pace so students don't feel nervous and pressured. I joke around a little bit and get to know students and build a bit of a relationship before just jumping in and getting more serious about the subject material. But there's plenty of time to get things done.
I am available to all who need help in math, physics, or chemistry. I am able to give tutoring to those who have a mental disability. My main method as a tutor is to first see what they know about the topic they are on. From there, I guide them on what the next step in solving the problem is and why it should be that way.
My teaching methodology is based on teaching and understanding the concepts behind the information being taught rather than just teaching them how to do something. In this way students are able to retain the information for life and build their own confidence regarding their personal intelligence and knowledge.
My teaching method is based on understanding the material rather than just getting the answer right. Understanding often comes from repetition. I believe have the student teach the tutor, and explaining what they know in their own words. When you can teach the topic, that's when you understand it.
I do not teach according to a set standard. If given a problem or equation, I think of many possible ways to get to the answer. I myself think like this and would teach my students an efficient way to think and get to an answer and not just what is taught in class.
My teaching method is I like to provide conceptions linked to the problems. I love to ask students to think about the problems first then let them solve it. If they struggle, I will suggest they look at the concepts and at the end, I would like to provide them my best answer and I compare it to student's solution also I suggest to discuss the problem father.
I have a passion for math and love to pass it on to other people! I believe people learn best when they understand the reasoning behind what they are learning. I have a bachelor's degree in Mathematics/Economics (one major) from University of California, Santa Barbara and a valid teaching credential for Secondary Mathematics.
I want each and every student to understand the subject and what it entails, not just how to do a specific problems. I attempt to create an understanding in the student that takes them much further than my tutoring sessions. I will first identify your deficiencies in the given subject, and then fix those problems along with proving a solid foundation to the subject.
I am an upcoming freshman at Hunter College. I have had a pleasant experience with tutoring students during my middle and high school years. I love sharing my knowledge with students that are eager to learn. I have always had a passion for teaching since I was little. I always do my best to keep my students engaged in the lessons I give and make them as fun as as possible.
I have been tutoring for 15 years and I previously taught high school math for 6 years. I am well aware that math may not be most people's favorite subject, but it is my job, as a dedicated educator, to present the material in a way the student can comprehend.
I teach mainly high school students or college students who struggle with the concept of math. My experience is in students that have never really been able to grasp numbers, and I cater specifically to how individual students learn and respond.
My teaching methodology is to find the rout of the students problem whether that is through learning style, concentration, or ways to better take tests. Certain students need a tutor that hones in on their needs rather than just going through the motions of how a problem is done.
