I've attended Rio Hondo College at the city of Whittier, and I took classes to Prealgebra, Intermediate Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and PreCalculus. I'm new to tutoring people and am willing to learn as the people whom I tutor learn too. I will first figure out what the student is doing wrong in a exercise problem from the text and pinpoint what were their mistakes along the process of solving the problem. I am willing to help whenever possible and allow the student to learn from their mistakes and try to do better. I will give them practice problems from either my books or theirs to challenge them and make them better problem solvers and to exercise their critical thinking abilities. It is important to know why the student or students received their answer and the answer is not important in itself, but how they solved the problem. Concepts will be discussed after the students finish the practice exercises. Any student is welcome to ask questions because by asking a question people learn more. The most important thing in the process of solving a exercise is to understand concepts instead of memorizing equations. Students of math must know what they are doing, how to do the exercise, and why they succeeded or didn't quite understand what to do. I am willing to help those struggling with the step by step approach of problem solving in mathematics and willing to help the student reach their potential and encourage them to succeed. Difficult problems will be discussed and attempted by the student first and then seek additional help if needed by me. Everyone makes mistakes in solving exercises, but the point is to make as few mistakes as possible to achieve optimum level of understanding from the concepts in mathematics. I will see to it to meet the student's goal and help him or her learn to perform well in tests and in their mathematics career.
