My Motto: With each concept I did not know, there’s always a journey. Even if I don't know something, I will strive to learn it. This motto has proven to be very invaluable… even early on throughout high school as I received a full academic scholarship to a well respected and prestigious university.
It's an important quality for someone to know a lot, but I find that the most important quality is an undying motivation to help a student get better and to find a common ground so that a student can relate and retain the information.
This is what I bring to the table.
As a graduate of Transylvania University, I understand the struggles that school life presents. Either the teacher doesn't explain things in a way the student understands, or the student happens to lack the motivation necessary to be successful in that class. Keeping this in mind, I will provide the best structure, information, and strategy(ies) possible to give your student ultimate success in their math class.
I have tutored various levels of math at various ages/abilities. My tutoring first started when I was in high school in an after school program. Mainly, I would help with algebra (1 and 2) and Geometry. Occasionally, I would venture over to the adjacent middle school to help with pre-algebra related issues. When I entered college, I sought purpose. I decided to continue tutoring.
After that, I have been a tutored for college students at Transylvania University helping with more and more subjects as I progressed through my major (Mathematics). Currently, in addition to high school level subjects, I can help with Calculus (I,II,III), Linear Algebra, and most Mathematics topics in general.
I am studying to be an actuary. I have passed exam P with an 8 and exam FM with a 9. I can tutor in either of these subjects. I would prefer to tutor exam P as it is more conceptual.
Following my Computer Science minor, I have had a lot of experience with C++. Using Linux with a G++ compiler, I've learned the basics of C++ such as iteration, recursion, project/output files, and much more.
Find the limit, differentiate and integrate functions in this college level subject.
Learn two-column proofs, axioms and postulates, and area and volume formulas.
I have tutored MATLAB at Vanderbilt University. I understand the basic functions as well as the more advanced features with MATLAB such as data tracing. I feel confident I can assist anyone in this subject.
While I have not taken the Praxis test, I have tutored it before to a graduate student at WKU (Western Kentucky University); she is currently a Special Needs Educator for Warren Co. School System and she passed all parts of her Praxis except for math the first time. After working with me, not only did she pass; she passed with flying colors.
I have lots of experience with verb tenses (conjugation) and a moderate amount of vocabulary.
Great tutor! — I took calculus 1 last semester and found it to be very difficult. I ended up with a not so pleasing grade, so I'm retaking it this semester. I just got my first test back and I made an A on it. I can give a lot of this credit to Devin. He's a great tutor. He's very good at explaining concepts I could not grasp last semester. He's very knowledgeable on the subject and patient. He's also really ni ...
