My name is Steven. I tutored math and other subjects at Reedley College (in addition to attending) for 3 semesters, and I also have experience teaching at the high school, and elementary levels. Of the students at Reedley College who receive help in the Math Study Center, the college has seen an exponential increase in the grades of those students in the areas of math, engineering, physics, and the related subjects. I have completed half of a mechanical engineering degree at Reedley College and Fresno State as a transfer student, but changed my major to graphic design. I understand that not everyone learns the same way.
When I tutor, I make sure the student understands not only how to do the material, but WHY he/she is doing the material. It is not enough to simply show students the steps to take to solve a problem if they do not understand the reasons behind the steps. I tend to the personal needs of each student. I go beyond the basics of what the students are learning by teaching them several ways to complete the material in addition to teaching the basics.
