Hey my name is Barton T. and I have been working as a professional tutor for three years. I am currently heading into my senior year for my mathematics degree at the University of Arkansas. I graduated high-school from ASMSA, which is a two-year residential program run by the U of A administrative system that offers college level classes. My professors along with the unconventional courses offered from this school gave me the extra nudge into the field of mathematics that motivated me to become a tutor. I believed that since I was pursuing a higher education in mathematics that it was very important for me to go back to the fundamentals and solidify them. What better way to do this than through teaching it to others? I have come to enjoy tutoring because I love seeing that "aha!" moment on a student's face when they finally understand a troublesome concept. It is one of my top goals as a tutor to make my students look forward to the next session as they might not the class or especially the homework!

As I mentioned above, I am pursing a degree in pure mathematics. I enjoy this branch of mathematics because it involves modeling real world systems and problems. I have found that math is more appealing to me and the majority of my students when the numbers have an actual meaning attached to them. I have taken two years of architecture courses as well and learned a great deal about sketching and looking at problems in terms of the whole as well as its pieces. I have applied this to my teaching and rely heavily on sketches as well as models in some instances. One of my most useful tools for teaching is my white board and colored expo markers which I bring to every session. The use of several colors and a large surface make it easy for me to clearly portray the whole problem as well as each step involved within it. For long term students I encourage a folder specifically for our sessions that I help keep organized according to that student's specific learning style.

I do want to make it known that I take my job very seriously and hold myself to a high standard. Without working under a direct employer anymore I strongly welcome well-thought out feedback on anything my students or their parents think I did great or could improve on. Also, with tutoring being such versatile work I do have a cancellation policy that will result in a charged session for no–call-no-shows without a 24-hour notice. I realize this isn’t always possible so I am willing to drop that cancellation charge a certain amount if I have even a two or three hour notice. However I try to be as fair as possible and understand emergencies do happen. I have never had any problems with multiple no-call-no-shows or late arrivals so this is not something I put much time into worrying over. I do group rates which are negotiated on based on the subject matter, travel time, and amount of students. As I’m looking for long term students I also give lower hourly rates the more frequently a student receives tutoring from me. As a way to see if I make a good fit for the student I offer the first lesson completely free of charge if I don't meet my student's needs.

Feel free to contact me with any questions and I look forward to working with you!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored for three years through the Olde Tyme Tutors business based out of Rogers, AR. I have worked primarily with elementary school students but have also received up to undergrad students through the company. While I have not received actual training in teaching younger students I have acquired much experience over the past three years. Subjects tutored include math, reading, writing, science, study skills, typing, and history. I have set up several homework groups through Olde Tyme Tutors where up to 6 students would come to work on homework and have me help them with any problems they encountered. All of my students have ended with B's and A's in their selected subjects. On some occasions I tutored directly at the school and was able to maintain a working relation with the students' teachers as a way to keep track with their progress and see where they were struggling the most.

In high school I scored a 5 on my AP BC Calculus exam. I went on to Cal III my freshman year and also began tutoring calculus and other mathematics that semester. Since then I have studied differential equations and advanced calculus within the real and complex planes. The combined education and experience has helped me obtain new perspectives on the subject and allows me to quickly see where you are having problems.

My high school was a residential math and science charter school. While there I focused on mathematical topics. Afterwards I went on to study pure and applied mathematics at the University of Arkansas. I began tutoring as a freshman and have kept up with it since. I really enjoy this work and geometry in particular as it's one of the easiest maths to visualize and connect to the real world.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have been tutoring for 8 years and began with exclusively prealgebra students. I have since learned and taught higher level mathematics, but no matter how complex a problem it always comes back to the fundamentals. I enjoy tutoring early stages of mathematics, because it helps keep things in perspective for me. Too often math is treated as disassociated fields of study when in reality they are just various tools for describing thoughts and ideas. I've noticed that in the majority of students I work with there is usually some fundamental flaw in their techniques that is disguising itself as many problems later on. From seeing both ends of this spectrum I've developed an acumen for teaching the most basic of math in a way that doesn't trivialize it.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

In high school I scored a 5 on my AP BC Calculus exam. While the topics covered on this exam were more sophisticated than those of precalculus they are by no means less important. Precalculus is the mental primer that helps you look pass an equation into its' patterns, behaviors, and properties. I have tutored for this course every year and I am still coming across new techniques and twists to old problems. Each problem can be viewed in an array of ways and I can help find the one that most helps you understand the material.

I have taken and completed a math logic course with an A. It's was one of my mathematics major degree requirements and I have used logic extensively since in the pursuit of elementary to advanced math proofs. It is a subject I have put many hours into and devoted countless sheets of paper to logical equivalence tables; as a result I feel very comfortable teaching it.

So patient and clear! We are so grateful!

Mr. Barton has been amazing! He has been working with our VERY shy 11 year old daughter in math. She had an academically rough year last year and started this year seriously lacking confidence especially in math. She wanted to excel but felt like she was too far behind to catch up. Mr. Barton is so patient and encouraging with her. There is no pressure, he will go over the same thing as many times as is necessary and will explain it in different terms until she get it. He speaks her language! She has made all A's this year and is feeling very positive. I hear from her now that she "gets it" she "can do this"! She even asks him questions! THAT IS HUGE!! What an awesome change! I am so grateful!

Tutor responded:

That makes me very happy to hear! She's a wonderful student and a pleasure to work with.

Thorough and listened well

My daughter's first lesson went very well. She liked how Barton explained things a little slower than her previous tutor which helped her grasp things a bit better. We will be using him again!

Tutor responded:

Hey April glad I could help! You and your son were a pleasure to work with. Feel free to reach out anytime!

Very relatable for my teen (Algebra 1)

Barton has a wonderful way of relating to my 8th grade son! Our son actually looks forward to his sessions and comes away with great information and techniques.

Great tutor for Trig

Barton is an excellent tutor. Is is easy to communicate with. Scheduling had been easy and flexible. What I appreciate most is his ability to work with my child. They use the online tool from Wyzant which works well with the interactive white board. He does a good job of figuring out her level of understanding. He teaches skills and strategies. He does not do the work for her. He understands he needs to teach her how to tackle the problems.

Tutor responded:

Thanks for the review! It's truly been a pleasure working with your daughter!

Fantastic Tutor

My daughter is actually enjoying Algebra tutoring with Barton. Kudos to Barton! My daughter says Barton is "calm & explains things very well." She likes his teaching style and her math confidence is really improving. Thank you, Barton!

Denise, 2 lessons with Barton
Tutor responded:

Thanks, Denise! Your daughter really applies herself and that really makes my job that much easier and enjoyable!

Excellent math tutor!

Barton is an excellent tutor. He keeps my boys engaged and not only taught my boys the process but carefully explained HOW and WHY the math works which I feel is really important when learning basic math. Thank you, Barton! Highly recommended!

Jill, 20 lessons with Barton
Tutor responded:

So glad to hear it, Jill! It's been a pleasure working with your boys!

Great experience for my son

My 8th grader worked with Barton via Skype and it was a great experience. I was a little apprehensive that it would be harder due to skype but it worked great and it’s an awesome option for ease of scheduling. Barton very patient and knowledgeable. We will definitely use him again!
