Hey my name is Barton T. and I have been working as a professional tutor for three years. I am currently heading into my senior year for my mathematics degree at the University of Arkansas. I graduated high-school from ASMSA, which is a two-year residential program run by the U of A administrative system that offers college level classes. My professors along with the unconventional courses offered from this school gave me the extra nudge into the field of mathematics that motivated me to become a tutor. I believed that since I was pursuing a higher education in mathematics that it was very important for me to go back to the fundamentals and solidify them. What better way to do this than through teaching it to others? I have come to enjoy tutoring because I love seeing that "aha!" moment on a student's face when they finally understand a troublesome concept. It is one of my top goals as a tutor to make my students look forward to the next session as they might not the class or especially the homework!

As I mentioned above, I am pursing a degree in pure mathematics. I enjoy this branch of mathematics because it involves modeling real world systems and problems. I have found that math is more appealing to me and the majority of my students when the numbers have an actual meaning attached to them. I have taken two years of architecture courses as well and learned a great deal about sketching and looking at problems in terms of the whole as well as its pieces. I have applied this to my teaching and rely heavily on sketches as well as models in some instances. One of my most useful tools for teaching is my white board and colored expo markers which I bring to every session. The use of several colors and a large surface make it easy for me to clearly portray the whole problem as well as each step involved within it. For long term students I encourage a folder specifically for our sessions that I help keep organized according to that student's specific learning style.

I do want to make it known that I take my job very seriously and hold myself to a high standard. Without working under a direct employer anymore I strongly welcome well-thought out feedback on anything my students or their parents think I did great or could improve on. Also, with tutoring being such versatile work I do have a cancellation policy that will result in a charged session for no–call-no-shows without a 24-hour notice. I realize this isn’t always possible so I am willing to drop that cancellation charge a certain amount if I have even a two or three hour notice. However I try to be as fair as possible and understand emergencies do happen. I have never had any problems with multiple no-call-no-shows or late arrivals so this is not something I put much time into worrying over. I do group rates which are negotiated on based on the subject matter, travel time, and amount of students. As I’m looking for long term students I also give lower hourly rates the more frequently a student receives tutoring from me. As a way to see if I make a good fit for the student I offer the first lesson completely free of charge if I don't meet my student's needs.

Feel free to contact me with any questions and I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Discrete Math

I am a senior mathematics major with a physics minor. I took discrete several years back and came out with an A. I use this area of mathematics fairly often and I am very familiar with the material.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored for three years through the Olde Tyme Tutors business based out of Rogers, AR. I have worked primarily with elementary school students but have also received up to undergrad students through the company. While I have not received actual training in teaching younger students I have acquired much experience over the past three years. Subjects tutored include math, reading, writing, science, study skills, typing, and history. I have set up several homework groups through Olde Tyme Tutors where up to 6 students would come to work on homework and have me help them with any problems they encountered. All of my students have ended with B's and A's in their selected subjects. On some occasions I tutored directly at the school and was able to maintain a working relation with the students' teachers as a way to keep track with their progress and see where they were struggling the most.

Finite Math

I am a senior mathematics major at the U of A in Fayetteville and am well acquainted with the material. I have tutored a few students in the subject through Olde Tyme Tutors before I began tutoring with WyzAnt as well. Finite mathematics gives one great tools for organizing and analyzing the world around them in very practical ways. Once understood and eventually mastered it is a very fun and useful topic.

Logic

I have taken and completed a math logic course with an A. It's was one of my mathematics major degree requirements and I have used logic extensively since in the pursuit of elementary to advanced math proofs. It is a subject I have put many hours into and devoted countless sheets of paper to logical equivalence tables; as a result I feel very comfortable teaching it.

Praxis

I have tutored for this exam before and have covered the mathematics material for it many times over in my past four years of tutoring. I am familiar with the most up to date layout, scoring, and content of it as well. I can teach or provide an abundance of example problems for any of the content.

Reading

I have tutored for three years now and dealt primarily with K-6 students, most of whom needing reading help as well.

Special Needs

I have tutored for three years now through Olde Tyme Tutors based out of Rogers, AR. I have worked primarily with younger students, several of whom have had minor to major learning disabilities. Within this past year I have almost exclusively worked with foster students who more often than not require more focused attention due to learning disabilities or missed years of school. I have tutored students with disabilities such as ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger's, anger management problems, and a handful of others. Being dyslexic myself I have firsthand knowledge of the type of difficulties a young student with a learning disability may face. I work very closely with parents and teachers when it comes to special needs students because I believe a good home influence as well as strong class participation and critical for the student's success.

Study Skills

I have been a tutor for three years now and have worked with several students on study skills. I have become very accustomed to teaching study skills, so much so that I now bring a folder for each my students to keep notes of what we go over and to help them write clean, organized, and useful notes.

Writing

Completed all of my college writing qualifications by my senior year of high school.

Been reading all my life,
any and all kinds of literature,
from Mark Twain to Walter Dean
