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.
When tutoring, I focus on areas of the study which my students struggle with. By understanding weaknesses, the student has the greatest opportunity to succeed in their studies.
I have the experience and passion for introducing new educational techniques and strategies that will empower students to think on one’s feet, make decisions on the fly, and react to every-changing situations I was born and raised in Robeson County. I have always helped to enhance and enrich those around me academically in mathematics at all levels.
My teaching methodology centers around the teaching of concepts. Every learning idea is made up of several concepts. I design each concept as a mini lesson, which when mastered, combine to help the student master an understanding of the big learning idea. I continually assess students’ learning in order to chart their progress.
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.
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.
Teaching Methodology: California Common Core Standard For Math Curriculum Growth Mindset to teach students the importance of perseverance and love for problem-solving Active Learning to allow students to explore new concepts by doing activities, answering questions, and exploring one own's misunderstanding to achieve success.
My methodology is building confidence in my students, we all have the ability to think analytically and solve problems but may students think that they aren't a "math person" so they just can't be good at it. I had math tutor through high school and went to kimono as a child because I am not naturally a "math person" I became one.
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'm an engineering major looking to tutor children and teenagers in need of help with SAT, ACT, entrance exam, and placement exam preparation or with everyday homework, assignments, and tests. I am an effective tutor by providing students with academic instruction in a safe and fun environment. I primarily tutor in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, physics, and English.
I have tutored students as young as 5 and students taking graduate level exams (GRE, California Teaching Credential, etc.). I am excellent at tutoring in ALL academic areas, English Language Arts, Writing, Math, History, Science, etc. My first steps are to get to know the student, their likes, dislikes and interview parents or (for adult learners) discuss challenges they may face.
I am a firm believer that teaching requires patience. My worst fear is someone feeling too uncomfortable to ask me a question they have. I make it a priority to make students feel safe and comfortable during our sessions, and treat them like a best friend versus just a student.
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 spend the first session getting to know my students in order to grasp what they're struggling in, what they hope to achieve academically, and what resources they need to do it. I then gather worksheets and cultivate a lesson plan that is individually crafted for them. Whether it be test prep, school help, or problem-solving tips, I have resources on hand from my grassroots tutoring program.
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.
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 strongly believe in the inquiry-based method of teaching, which is that I encourage students in a way in which they begin to ask themselves relevant questions that encourage thinking and learning. When a teacher asks many (guiding) questions, she or he sets the tone for students.
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 am a graduate of Penn State Brandywine with a Major in Letters, Arts and Science with a minor in International Studies. I am a graduate student at West Chester University and majoring in Certification in Early Grades Preparation/Special Education. I will be a certified teacher at the end of 2018.
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 was a tutor in high school. I am ADHD so it is easy for me to work with other students with the same disability. I work with what the child knows then proceed with what the child needs help with. This sets an idea that the child can do it if he/she puts their mind to it. I believe that all children are capable of learning, just sometimes you have to find what motivated them.
My teaching methodology is using prior knowledge that the student have of the subject to teach the new math concepts. My goal is for the student to understand the math concept and teach the student the necessary mathematical skills to applied the concept in mathematical problems.
I explain the topic and objectives clearly. I target various learning styles, and explain concepts in different ways to help students better understand the concepts. I like to combine lecture, active learning. I also use technology, such as calculators and computer.
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 graduated from Kamiak High School to graduating Central Washington University, where I got my bachelor's degree in Actuarial Science. During the time I was in college, I learned the following subjects: Calculus, Probability and Statistics, as well as Time Series Analysis.
Every student has different learning needs and goals they wish to acomplish. I approach every student differently depending on their learning styles and needs. I approach homework problems by being student driven, asking leading questions to let the student drive and learn, and demonstrate by example if needed, allowing the student to always try on his/her own.
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.
