“**The Perfect Tutor for my Son!**”

I am a recent graduate of Michigan State University with degrees in chemical engineering and Mandarin Chinese. In terms of tutoring experience, I taught English as a second language (ESL) to middle schoolers in Czech Republic for a class-intensive week. While in China during summer of 2009 I taught twenty students ages eight to twenty in an ESL

Isaac has been invaluable in supporting my daughter with math. He helps with weekly homework, test prep and has an excellent rapport with her.

Isaac came very well prepared for his first lesson with my son. He was very thorough in how he evaluated my son, and helped point out ways for my son to approach certain math problems with better strategies. My son also really enjoyed his time with Isaac. I expect we will continue to work with Isaac!

Isaac was an excellent math algebra tutor. He was a great listener and patience. Isaac help me excel to the next level in math with trigonometry which was a BIG challenge for me. He has the right math tools that will help you understand math problems as well as the language when dealing with numbers and angles which were all new for me. Isaac tutored me in math the entire spring semester 2016, which was great! He was consistent with his schedule as well as his resources. Isaac took me from learning algebra to trigonometry which was an amazing experience. I couldn't have completed this course without meeting with Isaac weekly. If you are looking for a math tutor I recommend Isaac. He believes in helping people. I am confident that I will be graduating in the spring 2017 with my degree thanks to Isaac for helping me reach my educational goal. I will be forever grateful to Isaac, he is truly the best math tutor I have ever had.

Unfortunately I was only able to have 1 tutoring session with Isaac, but I would definitely recommend him based on that session. I could tell right away that he knew what he was doing and he genuinely seemed to want to do the best he could. Definitely worth looking into if you need help in Math.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

In 2010 I received a composite ACT score of 34 out of 36. My ACT English score was 31. I have first-hand knowledge of ACT preparation and practice testing, as I studied for six months to prepare for the ACT.

Reading comprehension, interpretation, and retention is an important part of academics and everyday life. To be able to piece together a cohesive thought and back it up with evidence is a large part of the ACT English portion, and my aim in teaching ACT English is to better prepare students for such cohesiveness of thought. When in the work force, if students cannot communicate or understand an issue, it will be very difficult for them to succeed. Tutoring in ACT English can set them up for lifelong achievement in communication.

Tutoring sessions would involve test-taking practice, practice ACT tests and evaluation, and general knowledge practice. Depending on the first day of tutoring and the day of ACT testing, a modified tutoring schedule will be adapted to fit the student's needs.

Math is a subject very dear to me. As an engineering major, I have used math as a tool to solve complex engineering problems that apply to every day life. In my current technical operations job I am counted on to make accurate calculations on a daily basis. Math is an important topic that applies to multiple facets of life, and my aim in tutoring ACT Math is to better prepare students for lifelong learning.

Understanding basic scientific principles is not only a great way to achieve in high school and college, but in the workforce and in everyday life. How pressure affects volume and temperature can be the difference between life and death in a manufacturing setting. If you want to understand a statistic or graph and what it truly represents, you will need to have a basic concept of bias and analysis. These tools and more are why science is an important subject, and I hope to impart that importance in my tutoring sessions.

My degree in chemical engineering brought me through differential equations, which is also considered 'Calculus 4'. I have consistently been using high-level math for multiple years and will continue to do so in my engineering career. I have tutored high school students in math for a semester and have also tutored college-level students in chemical engineering courses which require high level math knowledge.

Math is an important aspect of everyday life. Concepts in Algebra 2 can be applied to optimization problems, savings, and loans (exponential growth). Algebra 2 sets people up for Calculus and other higher-level math.

Teaching Algebra 2 is an exciting process, and I enjoy working with students who may not "get it" right away. With patience and hard work, the light-bulb moment will not be far off.

I have been involved in multiple Bible Studies throughout my life. I have read through the Bible multiple times, have memorized portions of Scripture, and understand the big picture of the Bible, along with the doctrine and theology behind it. I spent one year reading through Romans, verse by verse. I have taught Bible Studies to international students and to fellow college students. I have also written and led Bible Studies with graduate students.

I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in chemical engineering and accompanying GPA of 3.62. While in college I tutored fellow chemical engineers in topics ranging from reactions engineering to fluid flow and heat transfer to mass transfer and separations. I have taken courses in process control, senior design, bioengineering, and polymers engineering. My current employment is at a biopharmaceutical facility where I am constantly learning about unit operations in chemical engineering.

I have played chess since I was in elementary school. My father taught me chess movements and basic strategy. I also learned how to play chess through a computer program called 'Chess Master'. I have taught multiple family members how to play chess.

I hold a bachelor of arts in Mandarin Chinese, I have been learning Mandarin Chinese for seven years, and have traveled to China on three seperate occasions for a total of 26 weeks. I have been privately tutored in Mandarin Chinese, and I understand how to teach Mandarin to others.

Prealgebra is a great building block for higher math. Not only does it impart knowledge of fractions, variables, formulas, and exponents necessary for algebra, but it also builds on concepts of length, mass, volume which are necessary in geometry, trigonometry, and multivariable calculus. I am so excited to impart my knowledge of prealgebra to students who are interested! I enjoy that lightbulb moment when students finally "get it".

How do you land a helicopter? How do elevators know when to slow down and stop? How do we interpret graphs with logarithmic scales? These are all concepts learned in Precalculus and are used in everyday life. I hope to impart the importance of math in students' lives post-test. This way, students retain concepts and can build on them in higher levels of math. Having a student achieve that "a-HA!" moment is one of the best parts of tutoring.

While in college, I learned how to study effectively while balancing two non-overlapping degrees (chemical engineering and Mandarin Chinese), high involvement in extracurricular activities, and work. While tutoring in chemical engineering topics, I also taught study habits to retain topics learned.

Tutoring would involve discussion and implementation of best learning styles. If learning style is not known, we can work through different study skills and approaches and determine which one fits your learning style the best. With these things in mind, we will set up a study plan and cement study habits. Study skills will be applied to learning a specific topic of students' choice.

I swam competitively from age five to eighteen. I was on a club swim team in middle school where I learned the basic strokes, and I was on a varsity swim team all four years of high school where I mastered the four strokes and how to acheive maximum velocity in the water. I also was a lifeguard for a summer, where I taught swim lessons to children ages five to ten. If tutoring in swimming, we will meet at a public pool during lap swim hours to learn basic strokes, breathing techniques, and advanced swimming techniques as commensurate with students' abilities.

How does an architect design a house? How tall is that mountain and what height does this plane need to be to pass over it unharmed? How does a CAT scan or MRI relate to sine and cosine functions? These are all applications of Trigonometry used in the real world. In tutoring students, my aim is to impart a significance of math concepts that can be used for the rest of their lives. When a student realizes the importance of math in everyday life, their desire to understand concepts increases dramatically. My hope in teaching Trigonometry is to not only better students' grades, but also better their foundation in concept retention, logic, and problem solving.
