About Isaiah

Hello! My name is Isaiah! I am a 21-year-old engineering student at Dartmouth College, but I am also part of our college's Language and Cultural Exchange program. Through this program as well as other experiences, I have tutored many high school students in Algebra I & II, Geometry, and Calculus individually, and I have also had experience in teaching groups of middle school and high school students Chemistry and Biology. Currently, I help a Japanese graduate student and a Chinese graduate student improve their English skills but have also helped students across the board learn Spanish. With experience, I have gained insight into some of the problems that students encounter when trying to learn primary maths and sciences, but also have helped adults improve their general math skills as well. I know the learning process can be difficult, but I am dedicated and would love to be the one help you work toward your educational goal.

My understanding of Math and Physical Sciences is deep because they have to be in an Ivy League Engineering program. However, this understanding has helped give my students a well-rounded understanding in primary math and science. One of proudest moments teaching was helping a high school student in danger of failing to graduate raise his Chemistry grade from a "C" to an "A" and get a "B" in a Spanish class that he was failing. Concerning my Spanish, I speak Spanish fairly well and have passed many examinations on the subject (AP, Dartmouth's proficiency test). I am also not a native speaker, which I have found makes it easier on the student because I can easily sympathize and aid with tips I used when learning grammar and new vocabulary. I love learning languages and teaching them, which is why I am part of the Language and Cultural exchange program at Dartmouth. Sound differentiation in language is another skill of mine because of some linguistic training so I can also aid with accents.

In high school, was a semifinalist in the California State Championship for a speech that I wrote. Since then, my writing and presentation skills have only improved. If you need help with some form of rhetoric or need someone to check your grammar, I am definitely up to the task.

I am looking forward to working with you. Even if you are unsure of whether I am the right fit, we can talk for a bit and see if things work out.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

English

I am receiving a degree in linguistics, and I have a detailed understanding of the English language and its grammar. My background on a highly-rated debate team has also helped me hone rhetoric skills.

Handwriting

I have taken many calligraphy classes as a child. I have script-like handwriting as a result and I am familiar with most alternatives for cursive and print letters. My father was also taught in a British school where precision mattered in writing. He has instilled that precision in me as well.

Public Speaking

I was on my school's speech and debate team and a semifinalist in the California State Tournament in 2013. Additionally, I was also one of the team's speech captains. I have much experience helping others with their speeches.

Python

Python is a dynamic, strongly, implicitly-typed language. These features make it relatively easy to learn and teach. It also helps that it is interpreted rather than compiled. I have had to learn this language for work in a biomimetics lab, and I have an understanding of how this object-oriented language works and how to teach it.

Spanish

I have many years of Spanish tutoring experience, and I am getting a degree in Linguistics which helps me with explaining the language's grammar to students. College Board test preparation is also a specialty.

I could tell by the conversation that my son was having during his tutoring session that he was very open minded to learning. Logan was asking Isaiah many questions and therefore, soaking it all in.
