I have quite a bit of experience as a teacher, tutor, and trainer in a variety of areas. Through high school and college I was a math
tutor and have been tutoring roughly 20 hours each week as a hobby since August 2013. I have worked with at least 10 different students in all major mathematics
classes starting with Algebra
through Advanced Calculus
. I have worked with many college students exclusively during finals weeks to help cram for exams but most of my students I meet with on a weekly or biweekly basis.
My father has been a high school teacher in math, physics
in the Stevens Point area for over 30 years, so I grew up learning things from him, and gaining teaching prowess. I am planning on pursuing a Ph.D. in economics
, but I am taking a year off to focus on research, and to support my significant other as she begins her Ph.D. program in clinical psychology
While in college, I have spent two years as the chess
coach at the high school level, which included working with 10-15 students 2-3 times weekly. I also was the president of the economics club at my college for two years, and I did a lot of peer tutoring in economics and mathematics.
My tutoring method is simple - Teaching to make connections to things that students currently understands will increase their confidence, which is key in math and science
. Teaching the process, and using repetition in mathematics will also help increase confidence and understanding. I am good at adapting to different learning styles which I have researched extensively to help my career in business
, and am confident I can be successful teaching any of my areas of expertise.
