About Wesley

I have had over two years experience tutoring high school students in geometry, algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus and calculus. I graduated with an applied mathematics B.A. and a minor in mathematical education, so I am more than qualified to answer any questions your students may have.

My teaching philosophy is to help the the students understand where the formulas come from. By doing this, the students won't just have to memorize formulas, they will be able to derive them if they need to. I am extremely patient with them, and I will explain it in as many times and different ways I need to until the idea is clear.

I find tutoring one of most rewarding experiences one can do. I look forward to helping students grow and mature academically.

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.

Algebra 1

The foundation for all other math courses, I will emphasize all the basics in this course as it helps students with all future courses

If I have a specialty, it would be algebra. I have tutored many students in the past in this subject.
