I currently have a bachelor's in mechanical engineering. I like to teach using visuals whenever applicable (i.e. drawings, schematics/diagrams, physical objects) to show or prove a concept. If the question involves memorization, I would use mnemonics (i.e. Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally).
At Brightmont Academy, I teach students who have ADHD, anxiety, autism, and athletic travel conflicts in a one-on-one instruction format with a mastery-based learning approach. This past semester, I taught AP calculus, physics, chemistry, algebra, earth science, and French, and I worked with students who ranged in age from 7th to 12th grade.
I work primarily with high school students, but I also work frequently with middle school and college students. I excel at finding new and engaging ways to explain difficult concepts to students by focusing on the students' hobbies and passions. I thoroughly enjoy taking the time to get to know you so I can find real world examples and techniques to better demonstrate tough concepts.
I am very thorough and patient. Like to begin with the basics and move at the clients pace. I can work with students both online (ZOOM or GOOGLE HANGOUTS) OR MEET FACE-TO-FACE. I can work with 1 to 3 students easily (must be the same subject).
My teaching method is the demonstration method because students follow the steps and can practice from it over & over. Also, I tryto make it as easy as possible for students to learn from tutoring not just copy the answer.
I first believe that students don't care what you know until they know that you care. I to take variety of approaches when I teach. I have my "go--to" strategies, but if a student does"t "get it" I try to present it in different ways.
I believe that learning and tutoring is not "one size fits all." Each and every student learns in different ways, but the key component in mathematics is repetition. The more examples practiced, the easier it will become for students to understand what they are learning and understand how it applies.
I approach each situation differently because not every student learns in the same way. I like when the student asks questions and I like providing them with the right amount of examples so they can really understand what they are doing.
I base my classes on the AP (calculus and physics) and pre-AP (for all other math classes) curriculum, with a focus on applications to real-world situations. The teaching experience can be tailored so the student may get a high score on the AP exam and/or SAT subject test, or so that any gaps in the student's current learning experience can be filled. (This is not endorsed by the College Board).
My teaching methodology is before starting any lessons get familiar with my tutee. After that give them the importance of that topic in the real world so that they will have curiosity on that topic. Then start with a simple example, slowly and slowly go on depth. At the end of the lessons let them solve some problems, clarify their confusion by reviewing lessons and then give them assignment.
My teaching method is reflective of my student's learning style. Some are more auditory and some prefer a more visual approach. Personally, I learn by implementing a combination of both so I am able to teach either ways or both. Also, I believe in repetition and nailing the basics.
Memorization is no way to learn math. I teach my students why what they're doing works, and encourage them to think deeply about the specific operation. I am a friendly, personable tutor that understands the stuggles of the average student. I know all the tricks teachers and professors pull on their exams and how to tackle them.
I have worked with countless amounts of students that are afraid to start a problem because of the negativity they have associated with Math. This stems from teachers that do not have the ability to teach in the way the said student needs. The most important part of tutoring is for the student to realize that Math is not that hard, it is quite simple if you understand the end goal.
My teaching is rooted in my time in scouts skills using the EDGE method: Explain the importance of the skill and show. Demonstrate the skill. Guide the student through the skill. Enable the student to feel confident in his ability to do the skill Ultimately, I let the student dictate the direction of the session based on his ability to do the skills at hand.
As a high school teacher, I have an ample amount of resources and tools to work from. I have experience both in class and 1:1, however I prefer one to one as we can move at a pace that is most comfortable for the individual student. While I do think that time management is important, I do feel that it is CRITICAL to work at a pace that works best for the specific student.
I try to teach by using insights and intuition, hoping that people will see how cool Math can be. I will try to teach using examples, real-life scenarios, and intuitive tips and tricks.
My teaching philosophy is that all material cannot be approached and taught in the same way -- I believe that nothing is unteachable. Everyone has their own ideas and thought processes and these can cause us to assess problems in different ways. Because of this, I believe tutoring should be fluid -- flexible and adaptable -- and truly allow for a student's success.
When I teach you, I don't just show you HOW, I show you WHY! Once you know WHY, then remembering HOW is easier. I will do my best to give you the same understanding on a subject that I have.
I have completed masters in Aerospace Engineering. I have several techniques that can be effective while teaching Mathematics and Physics depending on which method best suits the student. I have solid foundation in Mathematics and Physics which will reflect upon my teaching material.
As a student myself, I apply a lot of the same ideologies to my client’s learning process as I do with my own. It’s important to understand how one learns and discover the best study methods for oneself. I am big on growth mindset and positive reinforcement.
My lessons are geared towards those in High School or younger. I base my instruction on what the student needs the most help on being the priority. I would then discuss other related topics to help the student understand the topic he/she needs help within the context of other related topics.
Pre-assessment- To gauge the scholars prior knowledge of the topic. Guided Practice - Modeling and explaining how to solve the concept the scholar is currently struggling with. Independent Practice- Scholars will complete problems based on the guided practice activity. Summarize-The tutor and scholar will review the lesson and different methods to solve the problem.
My firm belief is that students can do math, but they are often limited by their interpretation of what math actually is. I encourage a sense of play and help students see that math is so much more than calculating numbers. Math is about patterns, puzzles, problem solving, and play. I help students make use of modeling mathematics by playing with open ended tasks.
My students are college students who already are smart and can eventually understand themselves. The only need to get some additional information/knowledge and a little nudge and then they get it all. The way I approach teaching is to set a goal for each student to understand each topic by themselves.
I approach tutoring in a way that adapts itself to the student. I believe that every person is different and therefore cookie cutter lessons won't work for everyone. As a person with ADHD I struggled in school with some of the approaches my teachers took and committed to finding a way to help people who didn't fit in the traditional learning model.
When I tutor, I start by getting an idea of the student's current knowledge of the topic, and build off of that. I like to incorporate the textbook they are being taught from, as well as their previous tests and homework assignments as reference material for them to look back on.
I believe in teaching the big picture versus what steps to do in every situation. I like to use the metaphor: Showing the picture on the outside of the puzzle box instead of just giving one piece at a time. If a student has a deep understanding of the material, they won't need to rely on memorizing steps for each situations.
I believe everyone is capable of learning. I instruct by helping students recognize patterns and make connections between new material and things they already know. I tell my students, "It's just math." I believe, by helping my students gain confidence and let go of anxieties, they are more capable of retaining new material.
My teaching methodology is to tailor each lesson specifically to the student. I like to learn about the student and what motivates them and then use that to teach the material. I believe that visuals and examples help students to understand material better.
I have worked with a variety of students over the years, and I have found that when a connection is formed through sharing my passion, students pick up and retain the material better. My goal is to help my students become independent critical thinkers by guiding them and asking thought-provoking questions.

Thousands of tutors can teach you mathematics. Find private lessons closest to you.
In some shape and form, math is able to explain just about everything in life. For some people, math is truly one of the greatest subjects to learn. It holds the answer to so many questions, so learning as much as possible about math can lead to a grasp of information that is not owned and obtained by many people. However, to others, math is just another subject that can prove incredibly tricky, as if a certain math formulas and math questions are not completely and accurately understood, everything else around it can prove devastating, both to the student and to their grade. That is exactly why, should a student struggle with any form of math, they need to seek out the help of mathematics private teachers. These private teachers create very specific math lessons for each student. This way, a student know what they need to study and work on in order to not only catch up with the class, but eventually surpass the other students.
All sorts of different topics are related to math and the mathematics private lessons. Some of these classes include physics private lessons, chemistry private lessons, biology private lessons, plus engineering private teachers can help with statistics private lessons as well.
