I am a math grad student at the University of MD with seven years of experience tutoring math and math SAT prep. I have worked together with parents and teachers to help my students grasp difficult math concepts, learn to think critically, and become self-confident. I tutor students from elementary school through most undergraduate math courses.
It is not my goal to impress you by listing my own grades, test scores, and awards. What makes me a good tutor is more than an ability to understand a given mathematical concept myself. I am a good teacher because I can break down this concept in a way that is understandable to my students and, in the process, find creative ways to challenge and motivate them. Ultimately, I want to help my students develop the skills they need to be successful when they work on their own.
I tutor because it is rewarding to see my students have an 'aha!' moment as they figure out a tricky problem. It is wonderful to see them become self-confident as they feel more comfortable doing math. It is exciting to get a phone call from a student and hear how much they improved their SAT score, learn that a quiz went really well, or find out that they decided to major in math.
I am happy to answer any questions, forward you a copy of my resume, or get you in touch with parents of my current students.
As an applied math graduate student, I do a lot of mathematical modeling which inevitably involves using differential equations. I have taken classes in both ordinary and partial differential equations, and a class on finite element methods. I have tutored students in differential equations courses which have often incorporated MATLAB programming into the curriculum.
Over the years, I have spent a lot of time with children as a teacher, camp counselor, nanny, and friend. I have tutored elementary-school students for the past six years, mostly in math. I am creative and enthusiastic, and as a math grad student, also very passionate about math!
I spent two years volunteering at my old elementary school twice a week, working with my own first-grade teacher who now teaches third grade. I worked one-on-one with students who struggled with math, reading, or writing. These were often minority kids and kids with special needs.
As a teenager, I noticed that interacting with kids gave me a special kind of energy and joy. Now as a graduate student pursuing a PhD in math, although I have worked with children for many years, they continue to delight me, surprise me, and teach me new things. Along with tutoring, I also offer sessions for kids ages 5 and up during which we play math games and solve math 'puzzles' to develop critical thinking skills and, of course, a love of math. This has been fun both for kids struggling with basic math concepts and for gifted kids who enjoy a completely different kind of math challenge than what they learn at school.
