Tutoring in the Richardson area.
I had my B.S. in Mathematics and a minor in Physics at Prairie View A&M.
Many of my regular students tell me I explain things very differently from the way their professors do. I've come to realize this is a huge compliment because it means I can reach them on a level that their professors can't.
While I'm new to this website, I'm not new to tutoring. I've worked as a GRE and GMAT instructor for Kaplan for over three years. Scored in the top 90th percentile in both verbal and math on the GRE (won't mention the score, but if you really want to know you can ask me personally!). I've also worked as a math, physics, and statistics tutor for a tutoring company. I've worked with many different types of students for many different subjects and have gained valuable experience from it. That experience has taught me that there's always more than one way to skin a cat (uhh... I mean, teach a subject... we're nice to all creatures here, particularly ants), and to be effective as a freelance tutor I've had to learn to adapt and tailor my teaching strategies to accommodate the various needs of all my students. I now excel in subjects with which I once struggled tremendously because I was fortunate enough to have had a few teachers and tutors who embodied this same philosophy.
I'm very patient in my approach with students, and try not to always force the issue. I realize not every student really wants to learn. Some simply just want to be spoon-fed or shown a few tricks and short-cuts, just enough to pass their exams or get by in their class. While I do subscribe to the theory that there are no short-cuts to learning, I will readily admit that there are short-cuts to simply passing a test or passing a class. I can readily cater to those students as well.
Above all, I enjoy tutoring and always try to pass on that same passion (though admittedly not always successfully) to all my students.
