Hello! My name is Sydney. I am in my last semester studying Physics Education.
I have experience in and am available for home tutoring, private tutoring, group tutoring, ACT coaching, as well as homework help.
My goal as a tutor is to improve a student's understanding. First, I find out where there are gaps in understanding by testing a student on different subject areas. This helps me get to know what a student does and does not know. In order to fill in gaps of understanding, I make up individualized problems that hone in on what they do know in order to teach them something new.
Another important skill I teach is problem solving. This is my favorite skill to teach because it is a challenge for me, and also because I know it is so very important in upper level math and science classes. To teach problem solving, I create individualized problems that make the student think outside the box. These problems are challenging, but they are not too difficult that they are outside a student's skill set.
If you are looking to improve your understanding of math or science, your ACT score, or your test taking skills, I am the tutor for you!
