Welcome students and parents,
Thanks for checking out my profile!
My name is Will, and I would be excited to start tutoring for you.
My areas of expertise are math
, especially physics
. I have had a lot of academic success in those areas personally, throughout my educational experience, from elementary school through earning my bachelor's from MIT. So, my own understanding and mastery of mathematics
and physics is very strong.
I was raised in a family of teachers so I have a lot of experience thinking about how students learn, including the variety of learning styles people have. And I have a lot of experience working with children through summer camp and through church programs. In high school and college I tutored for people of varying ages, both for pay and on a volunteer basis. In the past two years, I have gained additional experience working with high school and college students in mathematics and science. I love seeing a student through to the point of breakthrough where they finally get understanding of a topic.
Many people believe that they cannot ever understand math and science, but in so many cases I think it's because they just haven't had it explained to them the way they needed. I believe that virtually any student can succeed in these subjects if they are taught the right way for them. Students do not have to hate math or be afraid of it. It's actually really fun once you start to get it!
My goal with students is to get them to really understand concepts and be able to work with those concepts themselves. This deeper understanding is the key to success in these subjects.
I hope to hear from you!
