Hi! I'm Faith, a 19 year old student and tutor. I am a graduate of Norfolk Academy and am attending the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. My personal academics are very strong, having won awards for excellence in multiple subjects, and I really love both learning and teaching. I have tutored several students in subjects such as Latin, English, Physics, Pre-Algebra, Algebra II, Pre-calculus, Calculus, and Spanish. I honestly enjoy spending time with students and taking the time not only to get to know them as learners, but as people as well. I focus hugely on comprehension and understanding for real learning, not just memorization for a test. I will work with a student until he or she is comfortable with whatever material is at hand. I hope to impart a real enjoyment of learning to all my students.
A long standing 7th grade boy I tutored told me that I "kept an upbeat, fun, and positive attitude even when [he] was grumpy," which was often as I always saw him right before dinner. I enjoyed getting to know him and by the end he had greatly improved in his two weakest subjects (pre algebra and life science).
I look forward to getting to know you!
I am quite accomplished in mathematics and physics, both of which are heavily based on logic. Mathematics instructors have always commended me on my critical thinking and reasoning skills. I am also attending the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and am considering majoring in mathematics, which is merely applied logic with some syntax involved. This year, I tutored a 7th grader in pre algebra, and helped him heavily rely on logic and reasoning to think through a problem. His 3rd quarter grade (I started tutoring him in the second quarter) was at least 4 points higher than his second quarter math grade. I am quite good at both explaining and thinking through logical sequences.
I have recently graduated from Norfolk Academy, a prestigious and high quality high school in Virginia. I have kept a 4.0 since 9th grade and have a non weighted average of 97%. At least 75% of my classes since 9th grade were college level courses. To keep my grades, I studied for an average of 5 hours a day outside of school while maintaining participation in arts and athletics. I also did a little research while in high school into learning styles. Having identified as all three learning styles at different points in my life, I know how to study for all three. It is safe to say that I have an understanding of how we learn and how to facilitate this into study habits.
