About Luke


Bio

Hi. My name is Luke Y. Most of my life has involved varying parts of the education process since my teens. Both of my parents have been teachers and administrators in almost every type of educational institution (public, private, charter). I also have taught at the elementary and middle school levels; I taught 4th grade English Language Arts, 7th grade Civics, and 8th grade American History. In the past 18 months, I have also tutored a middle school student in Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1....

Hi. My name is Luke Y. Most of my life has involved varying parts of the education process since my teens. Both of my parents have been teachers and administrators in almost every type of educational institution (public, private, charter). I also have taught at the elementary and middle school levels; I taught 4th grade English Language Arts, 7th grade Civics, and 8th grade American History. In the past 18 months, I have also tutored a middle school student in Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1.

My experience also lies in disciplines like Spanish, Economics, and various forms of writing. In working with a student, I like to understand what their personal goals in addition to their instructor's goals for the course. Each teacher has a different method, and I believe it is important for the student to work up to a standard his or her teacher has laid out. For me, getting a student to that moment of understanding is where the real joy of tutoring lies, but the main goal is to get that student to whatever his or her goal might be for whatever coursework.

I love the order and structure that math provide. While there might be more than one way to complete a problem, there is a correct answer at the end of most questions. I have tutored in Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1, and I have completed Calculus 2 in my personal education of mathematics.

In addition to teaching elementary English Language Arts (albeit elementary level), I have continuously worked at the craft of writing and understanding the English language. Personally, language is a passion of mine outside education and understanding all the facets of it are important to me. Grammar, essay-writing, and reading comprehension are areas I could assist a student.

My Bachelor's degree specializes in American History, and it is the history that I am most familiar with. My father has been teaching A.P. U.S. History for almost fifteen years; I happened to be his student in high school and received a 5 on the exam so I am more than familiar with the rigor and coursework
