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 try and make math fun for kids. I don't expect them to learn extremely quickly or extremely slowly because every child has their own pace. Massive amounts of homework is unnecessary because critical thinking is far more important.
I like conceptual learning, it's the best way for you as students to get a good grasp on the subject, gain confidence, and apply it to sums with ease.
I believe that the most important way to enjoy math is to figure out how to approach a set of problems, instead of just going through the problems. Instead of solving the puzzle with you, I like to guide you such that you can figure it out on your own, and apply that methodology to similar problems in the future. I will go over concepts as many times as you need. Other than that..
This depends on the subject but my favorite quote is "Practice makes perfect". Electrical Engineering degree was one of hardest one among other engineer degrees. I did a lot of practice after class and while helping others provides me with more chances to practice my knowledge of the subject. Eventually, I become good at it so practice is my methodology to learn.
I am currently a Junior at Texas State University. I am pursuing a B.S. in Applied Mathematics with a minor in Business Administration. I have a 3.0 GPA. I have tutored through my university and have completed 75+ hours of coursework which I believe more than qualifies me to be able to help other students in the areas of study that I have indicated.
I find out each student likes and dislikes and what motivates to do their best in the classroom and at home during homework time. Whatever their response is I try to incorporate it in every lesson. I also have incentive prices they can work toward just to give them something great to look forward too as well as get on the right path of success.
I am an upperclassman looking to give guidance into the world of mathematics for those who need assistance with coursework or prepare those who would like to seek ahead.
Lesson Plan First, I believe that learning should be FUN! We remember the things that we enjoy! I like to always have a clear understanding of the needs of the learner. I will talk to students about the areas of frustration, and also the parents (when possible for younger learners) to get as much information as possible.
I enjoy teaching different levels of engineering and scientific courses to students currently enrolled in an engineering program. I structure my lessons around the individual to see where they struggle and create clear steps to follow so that they may overcome the more challenging topics.
As an individual tutor, I craft each lesson to meet the student's individual learning needs. I vary my methods early in the tutoring relationship until I find the one (or ones) that work best for the student in question. However, as a general approach, I tend to view the process as a coach rather than an instructor.
My teaching method depends also on the students. Some students need to be challenged while others need to be guided in a constructive way in order for them to get confidence in the subject and resolve the problems on their own.
I'm a 25 year old entrepreneur fresh out of the financial world and looking to make a switch to education. I have experience teaching middle school to high school math, but I'm also hoping to teach music as well! I recognize everyone learns differently, at various speeds and methods.
I am a passionate lifelong learner and I have taught middle school students (science) in the classroom, and have taught university students aspiring to be teachers via online format.
Hello, my name is Ray Biggerstaff. I primarily tutor high school and college students in any level of math or Spanish. I use a white board when I tutor so the student can see the examples as they are worked out. I am very passionate about and fascinated by mathematics and Spanish, as I believe any tutor/teacher should be with the subject that they tutor/teach.
I approach every student as an individual, adapting my teaching style to their particular strengths & weaknesses. I do not believe that only a few people have the talent to "get" mathematics. But neither is it merely a collection of facts to be memorized. Math is a skill, like riding a bicycle or driving a car; regular practice is necessary to be able to do it well.
I am more concerned that my students *understand* what they are doing than that they be able to calculate and derive a correct number. I stress understanding in my teaching, and find that the rest inevitably follows. In the long run, this is both the quicker way to learn the material and the way which results in the greater retention of the material learned.
My methodology varies to adapt to the particular needs of my students. As we all learn in different ways, I try to utilize different examples and resources to ensure my students reach their potential in the subject. I explain concepts, give examples, and allow my students to discover other techniques and shortcuts through guided exercises.
I introduce a subject with the bottom line: what is the simple idea at the heart; why do we care; what do we need to master it. In mathematics, I emphasize that success is not based on memorization of formulas, but rather understanding the root idea, and a bit of practice. Many people have a fear of mathematics, but there is an easier way.
I work with each student to understand what they understand best and building from there. Through tutoring I've helped many students achieve goals such as passing exams, raising their scores, and most importantly, finally feeling comfortable with a subject that has challenged them throughout the years.
I like to guide each student into understanding each problem by not just showing how to complete it but but by showing why that process is effective and correct. I very much enjoy seeing that "ah ha" moment when a student finally understands what has been stumping them for so long.
In what I do, as I both teach AND learn, I place a much greater emphasis on "why" matters are as they are (and not otherwise) than I do on rote memorization or simple computation. My belief is that, not only is a greater understanding of nature / the natural sciences achieved in this way, but this approach also leads to greater rates of success (in terms of academic achievement).
I begin by having a conversation and self-assessment of what the student feels is hindering their progress or causing confusion (if anything). If there are roadblocks I look to see what foundational concepts that relate to those topics that may be holding the student back.
I teach with the concept of critical literacy. I don't just help my students complete their assigned homework, but teach them in a way that breeds autonomy, logic, critical thinking, and ability to independently find solutions to problems.
I am a college student studying Childhood Education. I tutor all grades kindergarten to high school. I took honors math classes from sixth grade until high school graduation. I am Upward Bound alumni, giving me experience in tutoring, college and interview preaparation.
As a dedicated tutor of mathematics and various standardized tests, I work with students ranging from grade school to those of adult education. My lessons start with a discussion of the topic at hand. Then I like to proceed to ask the student questions to gauge where we need to focus our attention.
Hi, I'm a highschool graduate who is self educated in philosophy and physics. I developed a theory on gravity from studying planetary development. I extend such knowledge into astrophysics and thermodynamics. My method of teaching is utilizing textbook information to teach physics by designing a planet. Drawings, email, Internet, and textbooks will be used as ways to teach.
I am a Masters level university student in mathematics, with a Bachelors degree in both mathematics and physics (with a specialty in astrophysics). I teach elementary to college-level mathematics from a ground-up perspective, ensuring students have the necessary basics before building off that.
I am a current student at CMU studying Chemical Engineering with a minor in mathematical sciences. I base my lessons on core concepts in math and science. I prefer to use a lot of analogies to help my students understand better the ideas at hand. I am very proficient in proofs.
I offer lessons to high school, college and adult (including elderly) students. I can also augment your home school courses. My teaching methods are flexible and can accommodate those with special needs. I can teach in your home or online. I strive to set and manage expectations clearly and always try to keep you challenged.
