University of Arkansas (Mechanical Engineer)
Hello, my name is Stetson (yes like the hat or the cologne if you prefer). I am currently a Junior at the University of Arkansas while majoring in mechanical engineering. I would like to outreach to other people and help them understand that science and math are not so evil. I'm very patient and can adjust to people's learning style while also being friendly and making the subjects less dull. Yeah numbers! Now I don't want to come off as a stiff or a prude but I am very structured when it comes to teaching or learning something so we don't get off subject too much and keep a nice steady pace for learning.
In the past I have received A's in most of my math classes except for a B in differential equations and I have a clear understanding of the subject matter. However, just because I have made a good grade in the class doesn't mean I can tutor in said class. My experience in tutoring has been with helping my friends in engineering subjects like physics, calculus, and differential equations in the two years I have been in college. Fair warning though, through this website I am only paid to teach subjects that I have registered for which include ACT math, algebra 1, algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Geometry, and Trigonometry. If the subject you need tutoring in is not on that list then I wouldn't be suitable for the job. Almost all of the people I have worked with received a passing grade within these classes, except for the ones who came to me at the last second for help. If you need help with a subject please contact me two weeks in advance before a test for better results. Sometimes I may forget a concept, but I've done it before and it always comes back to me instantly. I believe tutoring someone is one big learning experience not just for the student but for me as well. Hello, my name is Stetson (yes like the hat or the cologne if you prefer).

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have completed algebra 1 in middle school and received an A in that class. My experience in tutoring this subject would have to be with other college students during my free hours. My tutoring method normally starts out as getting to know how my clients learn and adapting to that learning style. My biggest strategy is to allow them to practice on more difficult problems than what their teachers assign so that they will be prepared for anything.
I have taken Calculus 1 at the University of Arkansas and passed the class with flying colors. One of my classmates even reached out to me for help in the class and I taught her well enough to get the grade she wanted.
I have taken geometry in my sophomore year in High School and received an A in the class. Throughout high school and college I still use geometry in my calculus and my engineering courses which allowed me to make A's in them as well. I came up with unique tricks and techniques on how to memorize and solve problems concerning complex shapes and patterns that you learn in geometry.
Trigonometry is a very important subject to learn, especially when I'm studying engineering. I use it all the time in my calculus and mechanical courses. I first started using trigonometry in my sophomore year in high school and received an A in the class. When I'm helping other people with a calculus or engineering problem I often refer back to trigonometry to help them understand it better.
