My focus in tutoring is always to help my students build their skills and confidence, step-by-step. I will tailor your lessons to your needs and your unique way of seeing the world. Above all, I approach every lesson with awareness, patience and respect.
Learning technical subjects requires problem solving. Concepts are be explained clearly if there is a need. Otherwise, practice is the focus. Active learning is best in any subject. Teaching strategy in test taking is beneficial to many students. I want to help students learn problematic material. Beating fear of success is possible through sustained small successes.
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 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 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'm currently working on my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN. I understand that every student is different in their way of learning, so I believe in exploring subjects with students to find out the best way for them to learn. I'm a patient tutor, willing to work with any student regardless of their learning pace.
My teaching methodology ensures understanding because I won't move onto a new subject until one has completely understood it. I have a lot of real life experience so I will often use metaphors to relate certain topics to in order to make it more easily understood. I have teaching experience and have been a tutor in my AP Calculus class to fellow AP students.
I am willing to teach any level, but I would probably be best suited for high school and older since I have never tutored younger ages. Since every student learns differently, my techniques for teaching differs with the student.
I base my classes the following way; first I have to know what the student knows, then I have to know what the student wants to learn afterwards I teach him step by step till he or she reaches his or her goal in learning.
I embrace the predominantly Asian approach to teaching mathematics in schools, called the "mastery approach unlike the traditional US approach where the emphasize is on a "mind set" approach. Under the mastery approach, students learn a specific concept before moving on to more complex ideas, in a rigidly linear progression.
I work a problem or two with the student. After that I let them solve them out while lending a helping hand should they need it. I then try to make a problem to ensure the student has grasped the concept. I am very patient and always ask if the student has any questions as to how and why I got to the solution I did.
My teaching approach is multi-fold. For me the teaching methodology is the key for the student's success. I start explaining the concept with examples and in lay man terms. With the step by step approach the content details increases and i try to inculcate the habit of practicing problems regularly.
I take the time to meet students where they are at. When we start with common ground and add to that foundation, the beauty and simplicity of math and science shine through. I am convinced that the right combination of desire to learn and guidance are what is needed to help students succeed in their goals.
My teaching method varies per student. Whether a student is more of a visual, hands-on, or listening type of learner, I always try to help in ways that are best and most comfortable for them. I pride myself on patience, repetition, and clear and concise explanations.
I prefer in-person teachings for high school or college level students. I ask that students make me aware of trouble areas prior to us meeting so I am able to prepare a schedule for that session. I am a student myself, so I understand how hard it can be to grasp a subject, especially chemistry.
I am a 2nd year Chemical Engineering student at the University of Pittsburgh. Primarily give lessons to middle school and high school students, however, sometimes first year college students. I aim to explain concepts in the most simple way possible without confusing students, as I know how intimidating chemistry can be.
I like to lead my students to be able to answer the questions on their own. I always start by finding out how far they are in solving a problem and supplying them with little hints to allow them to continue solving the question till they have solved it. This way they know what to do at every step of the way.
I have primarily instructed college students at the University of Utah with topics ranging across mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering, and general study techniques. However, I am comfortable tutoring any age group, from AP and ACT exams for High School students to return or nontraditional students at the University level.
I am a Physics graduate with a B.S. from Gonzaga University, capable of creating tutoring sessions designed to work along-side students of high-school or college level classes in Physics, Math, Science, and other subjects if requested.
My work experience allows me to provide real life applications of Math. My students appreciate my teaching skills for being effective in making students who are reluctant to learn Math to end up easily acquiring skills in this subject. I am confident that by working together I can also guide you to success in this subject, whether by helping you with homework or preparing for your tests.
Only have experience as an individual tutor. I have My methodology can be summarized as... whether it's a test someone is preparing for or a homework assignment they are trying to complete, I listen to what the person is struggling with in completing the task at hand and help them understand.
Hello, My name is Dr. Norman J. LaFave. I have a PhD in physics from the University of Texas at Austin and a B.S. in physics and mathematics from Carnegie-Mellon University. I have specialized in tutoring students in physics, chemistry, and mathematics at both the high school and collegiate levels for over 35 years.
- Bachelor of Science degree in theoretical mathematics from the U. S. Naval Academy - Master of Science degree in applied mathematics from the U. S. Naval Postgraduate School I often use the Socratic method of teaching.
I like going over the fundamentals of whatever topic I’m going over. Then once a the fundamentals are covered, it’s time to apply them to the corresponding topics for that field.
I am good at detecting what students ned and at creating a bond with them.
I believe in an individualized teaching methodology specific to each person. Some students learn better with visual/audio aids while others learn best from reading. I work with my tutees to determine the most efficient tutoring approach at the beginning and make adjustments as we go.
The youngest students I have tutored are first graders with learning disabilities which I enjoyed! I do prefer helping with more challenging math like college algebra and calculus but math can be challenging at any level. I prefer to review with students what they know about a topic and review notes they may have taken in class on the subject (so as not to contradict their teachers' methods).
I assess the student’s strengths and weaknesses as well as gauge their learning style, then explain theory and work through practice problems together, then have them do some asking me for help as needed. I focus on understanding rather than rote memorization unless absolutely necessary.
I encourage my students to make full use of my extensive body of chemistry knowledge by asking me plenty of questions. The smoothness of our sessions relies in part on the inquisitiveness of my students. I make lots of connections to real-life applications and have an aptitude for explaining difficult concepts using descriptive, intuitive analogies.
I teach high school and college students, but I can also teach younger students. I typically like to start off with having the student work on easier practice problems, then gradually increase the difficulty of problems. I also provide concrete examples to ensure the students are able to grasp concepts of the material.

Perfect! We hired Milena to help our son, an engineering major, work on his Calculus skills over the summer. We found her to be serious, yet friendly, and very knowledgeable. As my son said, she really 'knows her stuff!' We would definitely recommend her!
Perfect! Peter has helped my daughter in vector calculus and differential equations. He has helped with homework problems, test preparation, and concept understanding. All together Peter's tutoring has had a great benefit for her. I expect he would be...
