I realize that you must be busy and I only require a few minutes of your time. I am a senior studying Biomedical Engineering and am heading to the Boston University School of Medicine this August.
I am able to offer six strong years of mathematics education, with the most recent being three years of advanced calculus. Furthermore, I have an extensive background in tutoring.
My volunteer work at the Montessori School of San Ramon in California has helped me develop patience and empathy. Sammy, one of my students, suffers from Sensory Processing Disorder, a neurological problem that affects her sensory and motor systems. With prior approval from her teacher, I volunteered to teach her basic mathematical skills. It was difficult at first, as she was restless and it was a challenge to engage her. But I strove to understand her situation. Our biggest breakthrough came when I taught her carry-on addition. I was told that children with SPD usually respond unfavorably to change, and while I had succeeded in teaching her single-digit addition (3 + 4 = 7), it was difficult for me to transition to carry-on addition. Encouraged by her teacher, I tried a new method, one that focused on number restrictions, and in a few weeks, she grasped it! I could not have achieved what I did if I did not seek to understand her special circumstances.
I have also received the best grades in my high school and college calculus classes - my specialty in mathematics. Please reach me if you require professional tutoring of this sort.
