California State University, Sacramento (liberal studies)
National University (Enrolled)
I have graduated college with a degree in Liberal Studies, which gives me a wide breadth of topics that I have learned about, from arithmetic to theater. I have been certified with a 30-day emergency substitute teacher credential and taken many post-graduate courses towards elementary teaching. I have spent over a year volunteering my time in classrooms (lower elementary levels).
I believe learning can be fun. Curiosity and discovery are in our blood. Whether it is performing a scientific experiment to writing a story to music or playing a role, we are learning a bit about ourselves and the world around us.
I believe learning can be both self-enforcing and multifaceted. When we find a subject that peaks our interest, we will want to learn more about it in depth. People who are into sports find the statistics of their favorite teams or players important to them, and use math in their figures. Theater has long been an establishment for both history and politics and give different viewpoints. There is art in science like the shape of a snowflake, and science in art, as how colors and shapes reflect off of one another as your eye travels through the object. Books have been written just about anything and everything and help us explore worlds we may have otherwise never thought of.
I believe learning can lead to deeper critical thinking skills. As the world has gotten smaller and our access to information larger, we find how things become more and more interconnected. This leads to the greater need to ask the questions "how" and "why." The greater our knowledge, the better we can focus our question into what we need to ask to look at the topic even deeper.

Nathan is a very good tutor. He is very knowledgeable and teaches so I understood. He is very thorough and he is always making sure I understand before he moves on to the next problem. He also teaches with humor so it's stress free learning.
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.
I applied for the academy of Math, Science, and Engineering when I went to high school, and in college, I held a science major before switching to Liberal Studies to become an educator. I also take time in the day to answer other students' mathematical questions in the resources section of WyzAnt.
I am practiced in prealgebra, and I spend my time helping other students with their math problems by breaking them down into understandable steps.
