“Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty.” - Bertrand Russell
Welcome to my tutoring page! I am studying mechanical engineering at the University of California, Merced. I am preparing to research and design the technology of tomorrow! My favorite part of college has been studying and teaching math. Through education, I have overcome many challenges and I have helped others reach challenging goals. Outside of school, I like to play basketball, draw, and relax. Some of my goals are to improve educational opportunities for others, and to be the first person in my family to go to graduate school.
I have extensive experience in teaching college and high school level math. Last semester, I spent over twenty hours a week as a tutor in various college programs. For the past year I have worked as a math tutor in the math lab at my college. I also volunteer by helping out in high school math classes. For the past three years, I have worked only in education jobs. I worked at youth radio in Oakland where I assisted students in planning for college. Last summer, I participated in a highly competitive research internship where I developed my own mathematical method to compare climate models and economic data.
It’s just math?
It’s just math is a mindset and lifestyle; it is knowing that you can overcome the challenges that come with learning math. It’s just math has helped me to be the first in my family to take classes like calculus. I have gone on to takes calculus 2, calculus 3, and I will go much further in my math studies. I want every person I tutor to welcome new challenges by saying “ITS JUST MATH!”
My tutoring outcomes:
1. Academic success
2. Empower you to feel more confident about studying math.
My teaching system:
As a tutor, I always keep the emphasis on the student. This means I am there to guide and encourage the student, not to do all of their work for them. I will constantly ask questions to check for understanding. My teaching philosophy is to minimize memorization and maximize understanding. I will share special learning techniques. For example, I teach students to React! Reacting Consists of five steps; Review, Examine, Apply, Connect, and Teach.
