About Chandra

Hello, nice to meet you. My name is Chandra and I would like to tutor elementary, middle, and high school students in math and science. I have been teaching and tutoring professionally for over 3 years, and have worked with kids and teenagers in other capacities for over 5 years. I continue to teach because I love to learn, and find gratification in helping others discover and understand new ideas. Over the years I have taught ESL, Art, Math, and Science to students of all ages.

My goal in teaching is to inspire my students by using examples and activities which are interesting and appropriate for each student. This depends of course on a particular student's age and maturity level, as well as their academic level in a subject. As a student I strive to fully understand each new concept I am learning in the simplest terms possible, often using visual aids or real-life scenarios to help me understand difficult problems. In teaching I try to always use the same methods to help my students learn, making lessons engaging and fun.

Now, I am in my second year of prerequisite courses for a graduate program in Civil & Environmental Engineering. I am excited to be pursuing an education and career STEM related fields at a time when the percentage of women working in STEM is increasing in the United States. As a woman, I hope to help other female students become more confident in their ability to succeed in Math & Sciences. As a teacher, I hope that I can pass along knowledge in a fun and effective way, inspiring my students as I have been inspired by my teachers in the past.

Courses I am enrolled in include college level Calculus and Physics, and soon I will add
Probability & Statistics, and Architecture courses to my transcripts. Over the years I have worked my way through the various courses required for my current Calculus course, including Pre-Algebra, Linear Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus. My grades are above average, and I find little difficulty in understanding the mathematical concepts in my courses.

I am looking for a regular weekly tutoring schedule, working with students in elementary, middle and high school. Please contact me for more details and to discuss availability. I hope to hear from you soon!

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.

Linear Algebra

I am an engineering student currently enrolled in calculus and physics courses. My grades in these courses are above average. In my coursework, I have encountered many fellow students who have I have studied together with and helped with understanding the concepts of linear algebra and other math subjects. I also tutored elementary, middle school, and highs school students for over 3 years in several subjects, including mathematics and linear algebra. In tutoring linear algebra I find that exercises utilizing visual aids and real-life applications are most successful, and I often use these methods to increase comprehension of difficult concepts when tutoring.
