About Noren

Hi, my name is Noren and I graduated from the University of California at Davis (UCD), majoring in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in music. I have finished the chemistry, physics and mathematics series at UCD as well as passed the CBEST, CSET mathematics I and II. I also have been part of the MAST (Mathematics and Science Teaching) program at Davis. I earned my UC Davis Teaching Credential in June 2015. I am currently working on my Masters in Education at UC Davis.

Math and science are my favorite subjects and I always enjoy teaching them. In the MAST seminars I have had the privilege to help tutor a 3rd grade class, a 6th grade GATE (Gifted and Talented) class, and two 9th grade geometry classes. During the internship I was required to keep detailed logs of my tutoring experience as well as write and read case studies. Overall I feel that MAST has enhanced my tutoring capabilities and enriched my knowledge of teaching.I have tutored college, high school, middle school, and elementary students outside of MAST.

My teaching experiences have taught me how to adapt to the differences in teaching approaches from elementary to high school levels. I have experience teaching Integrated Math 1, Algebra IIXL, AP Statistics and regular Statistics at a high school. I have also helped students with Accounting 1.

I believe that one of the common problems that students have with math and science subjects is that they do not understand what the problems are even asking them. In addition, I have found that most students attempt problems without actually understanding the concepts and just memorize equations or the steps in order to complete the homework. I make sure that my students avoid these problematic practices. I also make sure that a student has learned the concepts by encouraging them to explain what they have learned back to me. A solid foundation for these math and science subjects is essential for pursuit in higher education or even everyday life.

I am easygoing, soft-natured, and in general, a sweet individual. I am open, friendly and I love interacting with students. I tutor at the student’s pace and believe that communication is vital in a good tutor-student relationship. As my physics professor always says, “There are no stupid questions.” All students should feel comfortable enough to feel that they can ask their questions, and I will try my best to answer them well.

I hope that you will consider me when looking for a tutor. If you would like to know more I can email you my resume. I look forward to helping you master your subject. Thank you very much for your time.

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.

Clarinet

I started playing the clarinet in 5th grade. I am now a 3rd year college student and have also played in the UC Davis concert band. I took private lessons when I was in middle and high school. I have been in honor band and marching band all throughout middle and high school. I even participated in the pit band and extra band groups throughout high school. Whether you need help with sight reading, auditions, or tone, I can help. I have had over 10 years of experience and I have plenty of great practice books. I hope you consider me for clarinet lessons. Thank you.

Differential Equations

I took a differentials equation course at UC Davis Spring of 2009. I got an A in the class and I understood the concepts and proofs. I didn't have that good of a teacher, so I mainly had to teach myself through my textbook and another one. I did not like the textbook and thought that class made differential equations more confusing than it should be. I feel that I could definitely teach this subject in a better and more understanding way. If you're looking for an A I'm the one that can help you achieve that.

Elementary (K-6th)

As in my profile, I have participated in two quarters of Mathematics and Science Teaching at UC Davis. In these two quarters I have interned at elementary schools. I have had the wonderful opportunity of interning in a 3rd grade classroom and 6th grade gate mathematics classroom. When I was in this program, I interned 4 hours a week and I wrote weekly submissions on my experience as a tutor. I also worked one on one with students or did group tutoring (usually four kids or less). In total I have completed around 50 hours of recorded tutoring.
In addition to this experience I worked as an after school tutor in Cooper elementary school in Vacaville. There I helped kids from K-6th grade. I helped in math, English and writing. I have tutored others, off the record, in various K-6 subject matter. All in all, I have had plenty of experience tutoring elementary level students and have helped them better understand their subject material.
