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.
I like to structure my lessons by having the student attempt problems before I get there so they know what the don't know, therefore our time together can be more productive. I like to start with them asking question then I answer their questions then show a few examples. Then I have them attempt a similar problem so I can see that they now understand. I like to also show them tricky problems and things that teachers like to show on exams that might trip them up if they have never seen anything like it.
I also like to teach clean math set up because most errors in young people's math comes from being unorganized and not writing out all the steps. I found that when they start to skip steps or do things in their head before they master a topic they have a harder time.
I am a student at Virginia Tech majoring in Math and Statistics. I have been tutoring since I was a sophomore in high school where I served as a tutor to my peers, now I tutor other students at Virginia Tech. I love working with other people on math and statistics because I truly think math is fun and once you understand it it can be fun for you too.
For college level students I will charge $20 an hour because these courses will require more prep time on my part. I will offer a reduced rate for multiple children in one family. And I will only charge $10 an hour for students in elementary school.
I am currently pursuing a Bachelors degree in Mathematics and Statistics and currently have a 3.3 GPA. I am a member of Collegiate Women in Business, the Statistics club and a Kappa Delta sorority member. I worked as a peer tutor in Algebra, Geometry, Pre calculus, and Calculus and I am a tutor for some college students mainly in statistics.
