I have been tutoring for many years now. I started in high school with classmates and friends, currently I am a part-time math tutor at Sacramento City College. I have always loved tutoring and am currently seeking an education to become a high school teacher. Working with students and helping people learn and grow has always put a smile on my face. This makes me very passionate about my work and I tend to be high energy.
I am very experienced in teaching with multiple learning styles and adjusting on the spot when a student is struggling with one style of explanation. There are many ways to approach concepts and not everyone understands things the same way! Additionally, I believe tutoring in something temporary/supplementary to classwork and personal habits. I emphasizing techniques on how to learn and study without the aid of tutor so that students who wish to be more independent can be. I would like to state upfront that allow I am usually open-minded and understanding, I must see a willingness to learn from my students. If a student shows up without their work done (every problem at least attempted) I will send them straight home. Other than that I am willing and excited to work with those seeking to better their understand of the concept.
I have always been a math whiz and, as such, I am experience in math subjects all the through year 1 Calculus and Statistics. This includes, Algebra I & II, Statistics, Geometry, Pre-calculus, All Pre-algebra courses and Trigonometry. As of right I am hesitant to tutor Year 1 Calculus despite having completed the course.
I firmly believe all students are capable of success and no concept is beyond understanding! I am looking forward to working with many students in the future, please contact me if you are interested!

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.
