I am studying for a Bachelors in Science degree in Physics and Mathematics, with minors in Chemistry and English at FIU. I've always been "that guy" who helps fellow classmates study for tests, and I've been tutoring professionally since early 2010 both through the school system and independently. I'm tremendously satisfied with my job and not just because I enjoy the subjects, but also because it keeps me thinking about where I came from academically as I move on in my studies.
When I tutor, I go by the quote, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." The goal is for the student to understand and to be able to solve problems in the subject without my help. The problem is that most of the time, the lower level math teachers don't get the students to understand the material, which leads to confusion in upper level courses. I've found that with a little review, people tend to improve their scores, and more importantly, their understanding, considerably.
I would love to help you with whatever scholastic problems you are having.
