I am a third year student at GMU and a Computer Engineering Major. I have taken several Math classes and I enjoy them very much. I would like to tutor High School level students in Algebra, Precalculus, Prealgebra and any other math subjects. I want to tutor because I enjoy teaching Math. I feel that I have a very good idea as to why students struggle with this subject and I can adapt to the needs of the student. It is very important for me to communicate with the student and find out what he/she is struggling to understand.
I have taken very advanced Maths at this point in my college career, which is where my experience in Math stems from. I also have experience tutoring since I used to tutor kids through my High School. Whenever a parent asked the school for a tutor they would forward them to me. I was able to tutor a wide range of ages (8-16 years old) and subjects at that time. Now that I'm a few years into my college education, I have an even better understanding of more subjects. I would say my strongest subject is Algebra 1 and 2. I find these to be very important Maths, because they will be expanded on in future Math classes. Having a good understanding of Algebra means having an easier time with Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Linear Algebra throughout college.
I would preferably like to focus on High School Math because I believe that grasping mathematical concepts early in life is the key to understanding much more complicated Maths later on. Also because I have a very firm understanding of these Maths by now, and can teach them in many different ways. I can show the student many different ways to understand the material, so that if they find a certain method confusing, I can explain it to them in a different way. I can also relate certain Math topics to other Math topics. If a student understands a certain topic very well, I will return to that topic when teaching other topics to show the similarity between them and so they feel comfortable with the new material. Similarly I can give them a glimpse of what future Math classes will involve, so that they can be prepared when that time arrives.
I feel most comfortable working with High School students, but I could do some college courses, just ask. I can definitely help prepare for college placement exams. So contact me if you or your child are looking to boost your grade or just get a better understanding of Math.
