About Vis

I've been tutoring students in various subjects throughout my high school and collegiate career. As a recent college graduate with degrees in Math and Physics, I've spent time helping many college students in these specific areas struggling with conceptual as well applied problems. I also have experience in helping younger students improve their SAT scores, specifically in the math section. I've always enjoyed tutoring as it provides me an opportunity to find different ways to teach and learn the same subject as everyone has a slightly different way of understanding various concepts.

I recently graduated with a BA in Mathematics with a concentration in Probability and Statistics, so I have in-depth knowledge of geometry, algebra, calculus, probability and statistics. I also graduated with a BS in Physics and as such I'm capable of helping students understand simple and complex phenomena that they may encounter in physics.

My goal is to challenge students to not just understand the material at hand for a given test or assignment but rather be able to utilize the material to apply it to different situations and be proficient enough in the material to be able to teach it to others. This involves providing students with periodic assignments to evaluate their progress in learning and providing progress reports.

I strive to always guarantee satisfaction with my tutoring and will only accept payment if the parties involved are satisfied. As such, it is always helpful to receive feedback. I'm flexible with my time. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, and I look forward to hearing from you!

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

I'm qualified to teach in this subject as I've obtained a BA in Mathematics from UVA and I've previously tutored students in algebra I who where in middle school. I usually assign problems for them to attempt on their own and work through conceptual road blocks they encounter on each type of problem.

Calculus

I'm qualified to teach in this subject as I've obtained a BA in Mathematics from UVA and I've tutored many students in Calculus I and II in UVA.
