seem too confusing?
Are you struggling on your homework?
Are test questions not making sense?
Did the lecture go by too quickly?
Do you not even know where to begin helping your child in these topics?
Then Andrea is the person you are looking for! She has calculus
, linear algebra
and physics tutoring experience and has also been a teaching assistant for introductory physics and calculus. She is patient and caring and enjoys helping students work through problems and feel more confident with their material. Her teaching methods help the students to become more engaging with the material and helps students to not feel like math or physics are so intimidating. She also spends time talking to her students about better student habits and, since each student is different, she tries to find what works best with you to help you learn what you can. Andrea will also talk with you (or your child) about preparing for college! Such topics may include: SAT
and SAT II
prep, personal statement reviews, and planning appropriate extra-curricular activities.
Andrea has also been apart of a few outreach programs including hosting a booth at the "Atlanta Science
Festival" in spring 2014 and "SET in the City" in Boston which is an annual event held in Boston to increase the interest in science, engineering, technology and math for young girls. She has also attended middle and high schools in both Boston and Atlanta trying to make science more interesting and accessible to young students. While in Austin, she also volunteered in the Saturday Morning Math Group which involves a lecture given by local professors directed toward junior high and high school children which includes fun activities.
While she has primarily tutored students at the college level since she is currently a Ph.D student in the School of Physics at Georgia Tech, she would love to tutor a younger child in need of help as she has had a lot of fun on the outreach programs mentioned above.
As she is currently still a graduate student, weekends and evenings are the best time for her to meet with students, so if this works for you, please contact her if you are interested!
Do you tutor more than one student in a session?
-Yes! Please check the special rates for 2 and 3 students.
Can you tutor more than 3 students?
-Unfortunately, even for 2 and 3 students it is hard to pin point the exact issue each student is having in a small amount of time. Some may be making careless errors and some may not understand the material. With 4 students or more it will be almost impossible for me to effectively help each student.
Can you tutor on the weekends?
-Yes that is the best time for me as I am currently a graduate student at Georgia Tech and traveling and time is easier on the weekend.
Where do you tutor?
-I prefer tutoring close to the Georgia Tech campus because it takes time to travel and my schedule is busy. I have met with students at Barnes and Noble in Tech Square, the Starbucks on Howell Mill Rd, and my office on the Georgia Tech campus. I may be willing to travel further depending on the distance, time of day, time of week, etc, but it would definitely be easiest to meet at one of the locations mentioned above.
Can you tutor over Skype?
-Unfortunately no. For math and physics tutoring, I need to be able to see the work you are doing so that I can help you accurately and efficiently. I also need to be able to show you what I am doing. This is easiest in person and can be very difficult over Skype.
