My name is Brian and I majored in Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Riverside. In middle school and high school, I took every Honors and Advanced Placement math and science class offered. In college I have taken differential equations, single and multi-variable calculus and physics for engineers. I have always excelled in math and in high school I found that I am also good a teaching it to others.
I do not have a lot of formal tutoring experience. I mainly have just helped out friends and friends' siblings whenever it was needed. In high school I helped classmates when they did not understand certain concepts in our math classes. I also tutored a friend's younger brother for about a year and a half, in Geometry and Algebra 2. His parents asked if I could help him because he was struggling in geometry and we succeeded in raising his grade from a D on his progress report to a B on his first report card. Then to an A on his second report card. Due to the immense progress that he made, his parents asked me to help him the following year in Algebra 2. I have not tutored very much during college, but I have helped my younger sister, who is in high school, in Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus the past two years and I know I will be helping her in Calculus next year.
I think that math is a subject that is easiest to learn through repetition. Because of this, I will not simply do your homework for you. I help walk the student through the steps that need to be taken to solve a problem, and if necessary I make up problems on the spot to ensure that the student really understands what steps need to be taken. I truly think that people can learn anything. It is simply a matter of how much work is put in. School can be very hard for some, but the right help can make it much easier and less stressful.
Thank you for your interest!
