Hello everyone! I've been tutoring on Wyzant for a couple years now, and thought I should update my profile. I am currently attending UC Irvine for my Master of Arts in Teaching, and am eager to apply what I'm learning to better help all of you succeed!
I understand from firsthand experience how difficult science classes can be without a proper understanding of the concepts. I also know that with that understanding, science can be easier than you imagined (and fun!). Each student is different, which is why I cater to each student's weaknesses while emphasizing their strengths. By emphasizing a greater understanding of the subject over rote memorization, the student and I work together to succeed in the class. Why spend the time and agony learning the hard way when you could be learning the right way? Hello everyone!

I previously had Nelson as a tutor with calculus and a year later I needed help in statistics. He gladly helped me out. Nelson gets down to business and goes over everything you need to know. Very concise and to the point. Great communication, even answered multiple texts when I needed help the day before an exam.
My daughter had fallen considerably behind in her HS Statistics class due to absences, and she was not receiving much help from the instructor to get back on track. In the course of one session, Nelson turned her around and restored her confidence in the material. She progressed from a couple of failing test scores to receiving a solid B on the next test following our session. I was very impressed with Nelson's immediate grasp on the material, and he appears to have a very straightforward yet patient manner of working with students. Highly recommended!
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.
