My name is Abigail and I am a recent graduate with a Bachelor of Architecture and minor in Mathematics from the University of Miami. I began my 5 year program at UM in 2009 and I realized that, as an architecture student, I must know a range of topics including art, AutoCAD, math, art history, psychology, and physics. As a result of this, I have found that I am able to help many people in a wide range of classes.
I tutored for the athletic department at UM for about 2 years in a range of subjects - mostly in Math, Sign Language, and Psychology. I am conversationally fluent in American Sign Language, and close to fluent in Spanish. I enjoy tutoring very much, and I would like to continue to tutor throughout my career.
Since I know I am only a college graduate and have no educational degree in any of the fields I can tutor in, I am very willing to answer any questions about why I feel comfortable in tutoring the subjects I have listed. I can assure you that anything I feel I would not be able to explain well (such as physics 101, despite receiving an A in the class) I would not include in my subject list.
I took Algebra II in high school, and I have since helped my brother in Algebra II this past year. In my Algebra II class, we made portfolios of important information, which I still have as a form of reference, and is helpful in tutoring!
I am currently a 3rd year Architecture student at the University of Miami with a 3.4 GPA. I can tutor in basic architecture/architecture history subjects including but not limited to:
-what makes a style /what are the different styles of architecture
-what is a typology
-how to verbally express your design to others
-how to design with a gridded structural system
-the history ancient architecture
-how to draw with autoCAD
-how to draft by hand
-how psychology and architecture relate to each other
-urban planning and green design
I first learned AutoCAD in middle school in a class called industrial technology. We used the old autocad 4 for this class.Throughout middle and high school, I would play with programs similar to autocad. When I entered the Architecture program at the Universityof Miami in 2009, I began learning more autocad and sketchup. Fall 2010 I took the required AutoCAD class for architecture and got nearly a 100% in the class. We used the newest edition of autocad in this class for PC. Since autocad for mac is new, I am not familiar with the commands using autocad mac, however I can teach the basics on autocad for the pc.
One of my favorite math classes is Calc 1(AB Calc). I took AP Calculus AB and BC in high school. On both the AB and BC Calc AP tests, I received 5's, the top AP scores. Since then, I have helped my friends pass their college calculus courses.
This semester I have completed the course MTH311, differential equations at the University of Miami with a B grade. I am a math minor and I found differential equations to be extremely interesting and I did help a friend in learning some of the material.
Geometry ranks high up with calculus on my list of favorite math classes. I took geometry in high school and rank in one of the few people who actually like to do geometry proofs.
I helped other students in the class when I took it and I have since tutored others in the subject as well. Additionally this was also a class where I had to build a portfolio with equations and useful information and this certainly comes in handy when tutoring!
I work in the IT department of the University of Miami. I have been trained in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint while working there, so that I may assist others in the computer labs. In addition, I have frequently used PowerPoint as well as Prezi for presentations throughout my life as well as college.
I work in the IT department of the University of Miami. I have been trained in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint while working there, so that I may assist others in the computer labs. In addition, I have frequently used word for essays, to edit others' work, and as a proofreading system before I send out any written information via the internet.
My junior year of high school, I took AP Psychology and recieved a 4 out of 5 on my AP exam. I had a fabulous teacher in high school who taught in a way that allowed me to retain most of the information. Since then, I have helped friends in their college intro psych classes as well as tutor at the University of Miami in intro pysch.
I began my official studies of American Sign Language in high school where I learned both the language itself and its history. I took ASL I and III at Nease High School in Ponte Vedra, FL. I was also an active member and officer in our sign language performance club, talking hands from sophomore to senior year. I interned my junior year for my sign language teacher during her ASL II class. Because of my proficiency and quick learning ability in sign language, I was able to skip ASL II by taking the ASL II final and passing.
I now tutor athletes in American Sign Language (levels I and II) at my college, the University of Miami. I have used my sign language outside of the classroom when I worked at McDonalds to take orders from those who are deaf, and also in talking to my friends that are hard of hearing. Therefore, I find that I have plenty of experience and proficiency within the language in order to tutor ASL I and II classes outside of my University.
Throughout my elementary, middle, and high school years, I have taken various Spanish courses. In high school I passed Spanish 1-4 with top grades, which allowed me to be treasurer of our National Hispanic Honors Society my senior year. Since high school, I have practiced my Spanish on two mission trips to Honduras, where I helped at a bible camp, all in Spanish. In addition, I use it when I am at college, as I go to school in Miami. I am conversationally fluent, and I still have some useful papers, books, and a spanish-english dictionary in order to help others out with their Spanish. And finally, I am looking forward to becoming completely fluent this August, when I go to Spain for 3 weeks!
Although I never formally took a trigonometry class, the concepts in trig were studied throughout my geometry, precalculus and other courses throughout my life.
The rules such as the law of cosines and law of sines I still must use in my college level classes like calc 3, engineering for architects, physics for architects, and other classes. Because of this, I have helped out many of my classmates in the subject of trig in our other classes.
Since trig is so engrained in my major and minor I have a firm grasp on its concepts as well as many ideas and ways on how to teach it.
