University of Arizona (Math and Economics)
I am a young professional seeking extra work as a Mathematics and Economics tutor on the weeknights and occasional weekends. I enjoy helping others reach that "Aha!" moment where they truly understand a technical concept and therefore find that little memorization is required in the field of mathematics. My personal approach to tutoring is to address the fundamental concepts. It is important to identify any knowledge gaps or misconceptions that the student has and to explain the concepts to the student in a way that makes sense to them. Sometimes this requires a little of trial and error, some pictures, or everyday examples until the concept is represented in a way that the student can recognize or relate to. Once the student understands fundamental concepts, the next step is to practice applying them! ````
I have extensive experience with mathematics. My heavy involvement in the subject began in high school where I was a contributing member of the Mathematics Honors Society, Mu Alpha Theta, and received a 740 on the Mathematics portion of the SAT. I went on to study at the University of Arizona where I graduated summa cum laude in December of 2015 with a B.S. and a B.A. in Mathematics and Economics respectively. During my undergraduate career I tutored students in math as well as became an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant for the University's remedial mathematics course. Through this course I worked with my students to set weekly goals and to track their progress. The ultimate goal of the course was to help students pass the University's mathematics placement test. This experience taught me that I truly enjoy working with others to help them reach their academic goals.

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 qualified to tutor Algebra I because I have extensive experience with Mathematics and with the subject. I helped students master Algebra I as a remedial mathematics Undergraduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Arizona during the Summer and Fall of 2015. Through this experience I assisted students in understanding the concept of a variable and how to manipulate an equation. I find that relating Algebra to situations encountered in everyday life helps students understand this subject.
I have extensive experience practicing logic through my coursework at the University of Arizona. I received an A in both the 300-level Introduction to Logic course and the first semester of Real Analysis (where you use logic to write Calculus proofs). I enjoy helping others with logic because it easily applies to a variety of topics that the student may find more interesting than mathematics.
