Hi, my name is Dominic S. I'm an Aerospace/Mechanical Engineer major transfer student, vice-president of my college's Math club and Engineering club, and an avid rock-climber and slack-liner. I've been tutoring Math and Physics with the Lake Tahoe Community College Tutoring Services and the Math Club for two years now. I love the material and I love tutoring; from elementary school students to college students, I work with just about all ages with math and physics.

Hi, my name is Dominic S. I'm an Aerospace/Mechanical Engineer major transfer student, vice-president of my college's Math club and Engineering club, and an avid rock-climber and slack-liner. I've been tutoring Math and Physics with the Lake Tahoe Community College Tutoring Services and the Math Club for two years now. I love the material and I love tutoring; from elementary school students to college students, I work with just about all ages with math and physics.
Typically when working with new students, I first review with them what classes they are taking, what they have learned in their classes, and what they are expected to know. In math this can be important, I need to know what the teachers expect from their students. This may change the available tools we can use to solve problems, and I like to stick to the methods that students' teachers use. I discuss with students the areas of difficulty that brought them here to Wyzant, and what kind of trouble they are having. This helps me decide where to start helping students, whether it be back to the very beginning, the main ideas or concepts, or specific areas of difficulty.
I have taken all the Math that my college offers: all the way through the Calculus series, ending with Differential Equations. I finished with good grades and after my first semester I applied to be a math tutor with a recommendation from the chair of mathematics at the college. In addition to working for my college's library with the tutoring services, I have also been with the Math club since I've been with the college, where members of the club help local elementary, middle, and high-school students with homework and studying 4 days per week.
I have also taken all the Calculus-based Physics that my college offers, finishing with good grades and after getting a recommendation from the chair of physics and applying to the tutoring center, the only physics tutor working with my college.
I've come to really enjoy working with students and helping them through their work. I enjoy the material and love sharing with other students. Being a student can be a long, challenging journey and I'm hoping that I can help other students on theirs!
