My name is Linus and I'm currently a Junior at the Colorado School of Mines studying Geophysics and Engineering.
First of all, I am a very laid back person, and I like to have fun but also be serious and efficient as well. Learning can only take place when you're in a comfortable situation and not stressed out. Math and Science are already stressful enough!! I am a college student myself and I understand the feeling of being "lost" at a certain subject. Trust me, Mines professors make sure their students look like deer in the headlights during class. I had to figure out a way to beat the exam system. See, I'm gonna confess, I was a horrible test taker when I was in high school. Horrible. But it was a great experience because it opened up a lot of doors for me to discover the best way to ace a test. I would like to share my experiences and skills with you so you can learn more and keep it for future use and, of course, get your money's worth!
Honestly it'll be really fun for me to talk about all my technical tutoring experiences. I'm sure it will quickly turn into a power nap session for you. Instead, I will let the awesome powers of my resume (attached to the profile) do the honors. So if you would be so kind as to read my resume and discovering more about my technical background I would really appreciate it!
I've worked both paid and unpaid tutoring positions. I started out at non profit organizations such as Seeds of Hope and volunteered as a tutor at various libraries for after school homework/test prep help. It was great because I got to gain experience but also fulfill my hours for the National Honor Society. So for about two years I just volunteered at local communities and it was unpaid. The volunteer positions mainly focused on tutoring middle to high school aged kids (math and science). After my volunteering positions ended, I started doing 1 on 1 private tutoring. I worked with two families. One was an 11th grader, and probably the hardest worker I've met so far. It was great because she broke the "I just wanna get an A and never talk about math again" stereotype. I tutored her for two years, both algebra II/geometry and trig/pre-calculus. The other family that I worked with was an 8th grader but taking advanced math such as Algebra I. I'm still friends with the families that I tutored even though they have graduated from school and of course, got a great looking report card! I've mainly worked with middle school aged and high school aged people, especially in math, science, organizational skills, and test prep. (Thanks for the attention so far, just a little more to go... I promise.)
Thank you for your time.
Please contact me anytime and ask as many questions (ridiculous ones accepted!) as you'd like!
Thank you very much, and hope to work with you soon!
