I'm Heather. I absolutely love tutoring. I tutored students in remedial math all the way up to Calculus II at Surry Community College for a year. Now I have tutored through this website for a year. I also often lead study groups in my Calculus III, Physics, Chemistry, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra classes. I tutored middle school math privately until I moved to Charlotte as well.
My Calculus teacher often tried to convince me to be a teacher, but building bridges is what I really want to do. I've never had a student whose grade did not improve. I'm definitely not one of the tutors that will just give students answers. I feel that it is more beneficial to lead them to ask questions or come up with ideas on their own that will ultimately allow them to arrive at the correct answer. I also feel it is important to show students where things come from. For example, instead of just giving a student a formula, I will show him or her where that formula comes from so that if he or she forgets the formula on a test or assignment it will be possible to analyze the situation and figure it out.
I care deeply about all of the students I tutor, and I want nothing more than to see all of them succeed. I am wiling to put in extra time and effort to make this happen. I try to be as flexible as possible with my schedule, and I am usually available without a day or two of receiving an e-mail.
