I have a great passion for tutoring, especially in mathematics. I have been peer tutoring since I was in middle school and I find it very rewarding to help others and expand their knowledge. When it comes to math, I find the best way to learn is to practice; those daunting formulas and word problems are less of a struggle when they become familiar. I also make sure that the student understands the concept and isn't just simply trained to plug numbers into an equation or a calculator.
I find that a student that gets the "why" will comprehend the "how" more easily, and will develop a more routine way of mathematical thinking. Math is one of those subjects that builds upon itself year after year, and so I believe it is important that the student gains a firm understanding to avoid problems later on. I am proficient in pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus, and I even offer test prep for the SAT and ACT math sections.
