I never thought that I would be a math major when I entered college. The more classes I took, the more I came to appreciate exactly how wonderful math truly is.
I was blessed with some wonderful teachers in high school and college in my science and mathematics courses. Unfortunately this is not the case for every student. A good teacher can show a student how to learn math, not just do a particular problem. I have always enjoyed working with students one on one. I have tutored individuals as young as sixth grade and as old as thirty. Either way the process is a very rewarding one.
Chemistry is about memorizing your definitions and then learning to apply them. The memorization work has to be done by the student. As a tutor I can drill the student on them. I would also be able to then show them how to dissect a problem into what information is given, what we want as an answer, and what can be gleaned from definitions.
Elementary math is about learning the basics of how to show your work and reason out a problem. I show a student the governing idea or principle, work through a basic example, and then show them how to apply the principles to a given situation. I also try to get a student to identify what their final answer will look like (i.e. X= a number, final answer will have the units of gallons, etc.)
Science is a wonderful subject. Establishing the basics early on is essential. Helping them understand the world around them will only open their eyes to how truly wonderful it is.
I have taken two semesters of linear algebra. One was required. The other was taken as an independent study course. I passed with a B in both.
