Hello students and parents!
I have 5 years of experience tutoring both high school and college students in math courses ranging from Pre-Algebra to Calculus I, II. My tutoring method starts with first finding out how much the student understands about the course material or specific question. I then let them show me what parts of the problems they are struggling with the most, and gear the lessons accordingly, highlighting those problem areas and spending the most time with that. If the student has completed a homework sheet, I am happy to check over it and then work on specific problems as needed. If it is a new lesson we are working on, I offer to do an example problem or walk through one in the book with the student before tackling the homework sheet. There are often several different ways to go about solving a problem, depending on the course. When one method is hard to grasp, you simply choose another one. I use this as an advantage with my students. If what I am saying isn’t getting across, I change the approach. It is important to me to find out exactly where the student is at in understanding, so that time is not wasted going over material the student is already proficient in, and also to ensure that critical points a student may be struggling with do not go overlooked. I believe 100% this is the most effective way for a one-on-one tutoring session to be conducted.
My educational information:
I am an undergraduate (3rd year) student at the University of Houston studying Geophysics with a math minor. My latest math course was Calculus III and I finished with an A.
