Hello all. My name is Jeremy. I tutor Basketball, Chess, Prealgebra, and Algebra I. I have had past tutoring experiences when I volunteered tutoring Math in my town. For Math, I like to give the student an opportunity to try the problems on their own and once they finish, I can go over the problems with them and see how well they do. It's about repetition and taking a step by step approach to find the solution. I am also encouraging of students who have found their own ways of solving a problem. In Math, there is more than one way to solve a problem and if they are more comfortable with their own method, that works just fine for me.
For Basketball, I was a 3 year starter in high school, where I had over 1,000 points in my career. The way I teach basketball is all about the basics, keeping things simple, and building repetition and consistency. For Chess, I used to go to school where they taught us stuff on Openings, Middle Game Tactics, and Endgame. I also worked at the ICA Chess School in my town. I played in some tournaments along the way and played well in those tournaments. My way of teaching Chess is to go over past games that students have played and analyze what they did well and some areas where they can improve.
Helping out students through creative methods has always been something that I have enjoyed doing. It's a great feeling to be able to help a student succeed and bring out the best of their abilities. Every person has their own way of learning and I want to help students develop consistency in solving problems and help them improve on struggles that they are currently encountering or will encounter in the future.
