I am a practicing electrical engineer with over 20 years of industrial experience. I have been tutoring my three children in their math studies for the last 15 years. In addition I have been a mentor and senior adviser to many colleagues from work.
I feel I can best help struggling students because I remember what a struggle it was for me to learn these challenging subjects. I remember asking for help from people who would just read from the book, people who didn’t feel a passion for helping others. I remember thinking that I could do better. I want to actually help people enjoy learning. There is a sense of tremendous satisfaction on a student’s face once they grasp a difficult subject. I can help you feel that sense of satisfaction.
My technique is to lightly touch on the theory. Then I go over examples. Many examples. I slowly bring the student into the example process. They soon are doing the complete example. Then we can review the theory in more detail. Then we can practice more examples. This "layered onion" approach develops a student's ability to do the chapter problems and drills down into the theory. When completed it provides a student with the knowledge and confidence to tackle example problems.
