Hi, my name is Samuel.
I have a master's degree in mathematics and an undergraduate physics minor. I have two years experience teaching college algebra at Eastern Washington University. While I love all things math, I understand that it is not everyone's cup of tea, and I strive to make the material as approachable as any other subject for my students. I will work with students to ascertain their exact needs and cater to them in such a way as to most efficiently help them learn the subject matter.
In addition to a traditional lecture style approach to teaching, I also have extensive experience in one on one and small group environments, where extra attention can be given to address specific concerns or points of difficulty. While I acknowledge that rote memory can often form an essential core to certain mathematical material, I feel that a more well rounded approach that encourages reasoning over regurgitation of facts in the end will result in stronger knowledge retention and better "future proofing" for later classes.
It is my hope that any students I assist will leave feeling like they can not only tackle their current educational hurdles, but also feel like they have the tools necessary to deal with future classes as well.
