I have been tutoring math for over 4 years with students from diverse backgrounds. My tutoring approach includes the following: (1) talk to students on a peer-level to better understand why they are experiencing difficulties in their subject; (2) work with students to improve the skills that will help them succeed; and (3) help students develop a sense of autonomy and empowerment in math, because confidence is a critical factor in ensuring student success!
I have bachelor's and master's in environmental engineering - testimony to the fact that learning math, biology, and other challenging subjects can actually be easy and fun when equipped with the right techniques and tools!
In my prior experiences as a tutor, work management skills have been a critical element. I've worked with students to set goals, timelines, or even simple routines to aid them in achieving their study and homework goals. I also incorporate these skills into my own life - that's what has enabled me to complete research for my master's degree in engineering, and continues to aide me in my doctoral research. Rather than hoping techniques simply "rub off" on students, I talk with them through their existing approach to completing work, identifying where we can work together to improve. My students almost always develop a sense of independence - the most gratifying payment for me as a tutor and mentor!
Great Tutor — Elizabeth has been helping my daughter for SAT preparation. She is a fine tutor and knows very well how to get work done from the students. She is patient and I highly recommend her as a tutor. Thanks! ...
