Hi, my name is Steve, and I really love to teach math to students who need a little help (or a lot of help). I am super confident in teaching any pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2/trigonometry, geometry, precalculus, and calculus courses. I have been tutoring these subjects over three years now and have had over a hundred different students of all ages, from 8 - 80 years old! My greatest strength is that I am an extremely patient person. It does not matter how many times we have to go over the same topic, I will continue to explain it in different ways so that the student can hear it in a way that they can understand it. I am able to identify the weaknesses of new students very quickly and can strengthen them over time while still teaching them the current material needed to be focused on. I am able to prepare students by helping them reach a level of confidence in which they will feel comfortable performing math in their classes.

I genuinely want the students that I teach to do well, because it makes them feel good, their parents feel good (if it is a younger student), and it makes me feel great too! It feels good to get rewarded for something when it is deserved because of time used in putting effort forth. I am a senior attending UIC for mechanical engineering and mathematics and have learned study habits that work so that good marks can be achieved. I can always find time to tutor new students according to what is most convenient for them.

I am very flexible and can even be notified same day of (most of the time) if the student feels they need help this quickly. I am able to come to you, you can come to my home, or we can meet at a library.

Thanks!

Explains it so she gets it — Great! Patient! Her grade went from F to C after two sessions. I wish I hadn't waited to get this in place. He's prompt and comes to the house and always gives the full time allotted. ...
