I am interested in opportunities to provide tutoring services to high school students, with a focus on Calculus, Algebra, and Geometry. I am also available to tutor science classes: Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Students taking my lessons will learn the material for their course and study strategies that will help them in future classes.
My approach is to teach the student how to identify the nature of the problem and to recognize the appropriate way to solve it. We work through the process several times together, identifying simple, logical steps for solving each type of problem. And then, I give the student sample problems to solve independently and coach them further as needed. My main goal is to make sure the student is self-sufficient, and capable of using the methods on quizzes or tests.
With respect to my educational background and work experience, I'm a Physiology major, and I just graduated from the University of Washington. I'm currently a Math and Science tutor at a school. In college, I completed math through Calculus 3 and am proficient in Advanced Trigonometry, Calculus 1 and 2. My favorite types of math are Trigonometry, Geometry, Algebra 1 and 2. I truly like and understand math concepts and enjoy helping others understand the underlying principles.
I would like to meet with you and discuss potential tutoring opportunities.
