While I do not have formal tutoring experience, I have a love for math and science and the way it operates in every day life. I've seen how great teachers can truly open their student's imagination when it comes to understanding all the different mathematical concepts.
A patient and talented teacher can improve a student's grade and passion for a subject dramatically and this is what I aim to do. Math appears in so many different subjects, especially science, as well as our daily lives. Helping students understand these essential concepts is what I would love to do. The only experience I have teaching is explaining math concepts to my friends in a study group when one of them was having difficulty understanding the material. I hope to gain more tutoring experience with students from Wyzant! I believe that the best way to learn and perform well on exams is to practice problems that are expected to be more difficult than ones that will show up on the tests. My tutoring approach is to make sure the student is showing and understanding every part of the steps to the solution. I also strongly believe that the repetition of the steps leading to the solution is the most effective way for a student to fully understand the concepts. I do not want the student to feel overwhelmed so I plan on not giving them an unfair amount of work to complete. I plan to bring supplemental books and worksheets for the student to work on, as these helped me when I was taking various math and physics classes. There are also many online resources that provide immense help in the learning process. Learning math is like lifting weights, the more you do it, the stronger you become!
I have taken math courses ranging from Pre-Algebra in middle school, all the way through Calculus II at Arizona State University. I'm not very well-versed in Geometry as it has been four years since I've had to use the advanced material but I am willing to review the concepts to accommodate the student as needed. I have developed a particular love for calculus and the concepts associated with it and because of this I am confident in my ability to teach calculus as well as algebraic topics. I received A's and B's during math courses in high school and college and because of my repetition of taking calculus and physics, I strongly believe that my algebraic and calculus foundations are remarkably solid.
I took Physics I twice because I switched high schools at the end of my sophomore year and I also have a bit of knowledge in the physics of electromagnetism. I was also enrolled in a physics and calculus hybrid class during my senior year. I have yet to take a physics class at Arizona State University, but due to my love of math I have also developed a love for physics and am very well-versed in the concepts presented in a typical Physics I course. I have also informally tutored my classmates who struggled with the concepts presented in a Physics I course.
I was enrolled in a General Chemistry course in my senior year of high school, which I received an A for. Then at Arizona State University, I took General Chemistry I and II. I would be more than happy to tutor topics in chemistry as I feel my chemistry knowledge is more fresh in my memory than physics. At Arizona State University, I formed a study group of students in my chemistry class and was able to help them understand the topics presented in class.
Please contact me to inquire about anymore information, I will gladly be of assistance. I hope you will give me a chance to help you succeed.

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 am confident in my ability to explain and teach Algebra 1 topics.
Because of my knowledge and extensive studying of calculus concepts I have a very good grasp on the material presented in an Algebra 2 course. I hope to give the students the solid algebraic foundation that they will need to succeed in higher level math courses. I will also try to explain how algebra is used to model many different functions that appear in business and biological models in an attempt to inspire a passion for math in the students.
I have taken three years of calculus ranging from a high school class that was a calculus and physics hybrid, all the way to Calculus I and II in college. I have developed a passion for calculus and I hope to tutor the students in a conceptual manner that will hopefully allow them to understand calculus as it relates to everyday life.
Precalculus goes hand-in-hand with Trigonometry and I have a very good grasp on both subjects. My knowledge of calculus has also helped to enforce my understanding of trigonometry, as trig is an essential building block on the way to calculus and high level math classes. I have taken a year of precaclulus/trigonometry in high school and feel that I teach this subject very well.
I have taken a year of trigonometry in high school and most of the topics were covered again in the calculus classes that I've taken. I have a very good grasp on the unit circle on various trigonometric identities. I hope to tutor in a way that doesn't overwhelm the student but instead by working through the problems at the student's rate.
