I can tutor in all levels of math up to Calculus. With the students I have worked with, I have helped them achieve A's in their math classes because I am dedicated to improving children's performance in school and am able to explain the concepts in simple terms so that kids are able to get it the first time. With my engineering background, I have been taught to think, not simply memorize. When I tutor kids, I have the same approach. I simply do not give them answers nor do I show them exactly how to do it.
By just showing them how to do it, I am giving them the fish, not showing them how to catch the fish. I show them that with the information that they have, they can think for themselves to arrive at the next step, the step after that, then finally the solution.
I help build confidence in my students to enable them to solve problems they were originally intimidated by. Lack of confidence is a key contributor to failing grades on tests and with my approach, I instill confidence in my students to tackle the tests, which make up the majority of the student's grade. I have tutored kids of all ages in all levels of math since I graduated back in 2012. I can meet you at your home if you live a reasonable distance from me or we can meet at a cafe or public library. My Credentials:
UC Davis - Biomedical Engineering 2012 SJSU - Computer Science (in progress) Reviews I have gotten from parents: "Strength - He is cognizant of each student's needs and is able to converse with my son, listen to his needs and adapt to be able to address these needs in the best way. Weakness - I can't think of a weakness" "He is able to recognize a person's character and is able to adapt to other's personalities and is very effective." "He is very sociable and professional. He is very diligent in his task and is very responsive to my son and flexible regarding how to work with him." When I was first teaching one of my students, he was barely passing his Geometry course. Within a few weeks, I helped him achieve a "99" on a test and a "100" on the next. Courses I can teach in: algebra 1 & 2, geometry, math analysis, pre calculus, trigonometry, calculus, college math.
