As a math major preparing to be a teacher, I am an experienced and effective tutor. I enjoy tutoring all math subjects through calculus II, including statistics. Also physics in mechanics and all SAT Math preparation (I received 800 on the SAT Reasoning Math and Subject Math Level 2). I placed 17th (7-way tie) of over 2000 students nationally in the AMATYC math contest in Spring '12. Also 13th (5-way tie) in Spring '11 and 20th in Fall '11 + Spring '12 scores.
I was the assistant coach for the middle school program Mathcounts in '06-'07 and '09-'10 at different schools in San Francisco, one year having the first place team at the chapter competition. I taught preparation for the challenging AMC 10 & 12 and AIME high school tests in '09 and '10. Since middle school, I have informally helped other students with classwork in my math and science classes, which has added largely to my experience as a tutor.
I feel that I can identify each individual student's academic needs and adapt my tutoring to be the most productive for him/her. I am receptive to students' questions and can understand the confusion and give satisfying answers. I am patient and able to explain the same concept/theorem in a variety of ways. I think students are relaxed around me and enjoy my sense of humor while tutoring. I teach the material thoroughly, helping students understand why facts are true. This understanding helps you remember them much better than by rote memorization. I try to help students not only understand the concepts and material but also see the beauty of math and physics. If you become truly interested in the material you are learning, this naturally enables you to focus better, ask meaningful questions, and remember the material. It is very satisfying when I see a student overcome difficulty and anxiety about math and begin to succeed and gain confidence in his/her ability in it.
