I actually have a great deal of experience tutoring in both one-on-one and group settings and really enjoy both. I have an enthusiasm for learning and, importantly, getting others excited to learn and understand the importance and application of what they are learning.
I am currently a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) student in Math Education at the University of Georgia.
Primarily, I have tutored Mathematics, and am proficient in teaching all levels up through Calculus 2 and Introductory High Mathematics (MATH 3200 at UGA). Much of my experience is in high school mathematics, although I have taught several college students looking to improve their skills who may not have ever felt like they have “gotten” math or whose skills are a little rusty.
I also have experience and excitement for teaching all lower level mathematics, in middle school and elementary school.
I have privately tutored for several years, and have also worked for a local learning center, where I have gained further experience in teaching. At the learning center, I specialize in the students who actually need to learn new things, instead of just getting some help on topics they are already familiar with. I love the role of “teacher” as well as “tutor”, and am experienced in being responsible for actually teaching new topics, instead of just helping with homework.
While my primary experience has been with Math, I am available for nearly all subjects. I have tutored individuals in college biology classes, and even worked with high schoolers who needed help organizing and studying for all of their subjects, where I served as a more generalized tutor for each subject. I did these tasks with great success, and I feel confident in these abilities.
I am also well qualified and have a strong academic record. I scored a 35 out of 36 on the ACT (99 Percentile), and a 1410 out of 1600 on the GRE, which is the test graduate schools use to accept graduate students for Masters and Doctorate programs. On the GRE I scored a perfect 800 on Math, and 610 (88 percentile on verbal), getting a total score well above the mean that most schools use for admittance.
Importantly, I am enthusiastic and excited about teaching, and also strive to develop a strong rapport with my students. I see strong success, and I hope to be able to get the chance to do the same with you.
Let me know what I can do, and let me help you or your children with what they struggle with. Math, or any other subject, does not have to be frustrating.
