I have been tutoring through out my life. Since my age of 12, my tutoring footprint has been all over the world, China, Costa Rica, Panama, and U.S. However, the most prominent experience is my time in Florida. With all the smartest kids, AP calculus not only expanded my knowledge but also brought Matt, Kitty and Jasmine, great numbers of friends who had common interests. Although, we always competed for the number one, instead of avoiding each other to know the most, we shared our time in helping others. With our passion, we all received 5 in the final AP score and in addition to that I won the first place in ASCE Math competition of Florida State, breaking the record for my school.
During the same year, I also tutored my friend, Julianne. She was falling behind in her online algebra class. I realized her problem was not that she was not able to solve problems but that she didn't know how to categorize problems into different types and solve them with specific mechanisms. To improve it, I began by asking her what each type of question was. Therefore, she is able slowly sorting different questions into her categories. Since that moment, I tutored her every week for almost 4 months. We greatly improved her grade from an F to a B.
Throughout my life, I have been tutoring. With my own interpretations of different concepts and tips for learning, I helped my friends successfully achieve their goals and built a system of learning. I made my own “peeling the onion rule” to explain calculus chain rule differentiation to my Indian friend. I created “roller coaster theory” for my Nordic friend to picture the energy changes in thermodynamics. I also brought play dough to explain integration in a more visualized way. All these imagery theories and tips helped many friends to achieve at least one more letter grade.
So let me help you out.
