University of Arizona (Computer Science)
I'm a computer science student of two years from the University of Arizona. In high school, I tutored two students during my last 6 months of senior year and had great success with them. One of the students was in Algebra 2 and was receiving a C at the time I started tutoring. We finished his first semester with a B since there wasn't enough time when I was hired. His second semester he managed to receive an A. My other student was struggling in pre algebra and didn't like math in general. I helped him change his view on math and he started enjoying it more and improved his grades from failing to passing. In University I tutored my roommate in Calculus as well as online tutoring two students, so I have experience in both in person and online tutoring. I only encourage online tutoring if Skype is used to communicate and the student is comfortable with a computer. Online tutoring was beneficial in the aspect of linking examples and sending files however I still prefer one on one in teaching math since I believe it's easier to work with on paper however it is ultimately up to the student to decide. While it's not necessary one of the ways I found great success was when a student would send me the topics they'd like to cover before I arrived giving me time to prep a detailed lesson. This is the most efficient way in teaching students if they like to follow this format.
I choose to teach through logic over memorization. While memorization is of course important a logical approach to solving problems shows that a person truly understands the concepts and are ready to face any type of problem regarding the topic they are learning. With a step by step logical approach in solving problems and teaching it is also easier for me to find and identify a student's mistakes and help them fix it. This way the student is also able to recognize where and why they made a mistake helping them find common trends in their mistakes and helping them self-identify.

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.
