I don't want to sound trite, but you'll get the best insight on me from what I tutor. My subject fields are somewhat varied, but so was my coursework in college (I have Bachelor's degrees in Mathematics, Spanish, and Physics). I am a whiz at standardized tests, particularly those at the high school level.

I have worked with a wide variety of ages, ranging from 4 to 80. I most prefer working with those between ages 12 and 27, though I do well with older elementary school children as I have experience with them from many years of babysitting and camp counseling--where I would often teach certain math skills on breaks.

I will stress that I can work with various levels of confusion and have great patience for such, but it is highly difficult to work with people who are uncomfortable with the tutoring arrangement; this is why I don't favor younger elementary school children (they tend to be antsy), people older than mid-20s (they tend to be uneasy that I am younger than they are), or anyone who is being forced into tutoring by parents or similar (they tend to rebellion). That said, I am always flexible as I am a compassionate and eagerly helpful person at heart.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Differential Equations

I have a B.S. in Mathematics as well as a B.S. in Physics. My math degree required a Diff Eq course that I took while still in high school (and got an A). My physics degree required a course that most of us referred to as Diff Eq with special Physics focus.
