About Charles

Education has always been a very important aspect in every adult's life. However, there are always times where many of us feel that we can't communicate with a teacher or just have a difficult time with the information being presented. I believe that my tutoring methods specifically help those who simply want to understand the material in a way that can be explained to the general public. Throughout college I helped countless classmates and students get a thorough grasp on the material presented in class and on exams. I simply explain the material in a way that will be individually suited to each student.

The majority of lessons were given by having students explain to me what part of a problem or concept they did understand and which parts they were having difficulty with. I believe it is essential to help students focus on what they don't understand, rather than focusing too much on what they already have mastered. I then explain the concept in a way I believe that students can respond to and make sure they understand by having them work through problems with my supervision. The students will discuss where they had difficulty with the problem and a thorough explanation and method to solving a specific problem is given. I then allow the students to reference my explanation and method for future problems that I provide and then work through until they have mastered the material and no longer need any assistance from the tutor.

I have tutored people throughout a range of subjects from pre-algebra, pre-calc, calculus, geometry (both HS and College levels), trigonometry, multivariable calculus, analysis of calculus, number theory, numerical analysis and also General Chemistry and General Physics with Calculus. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from The University of Connecticut and have been working with both high school and college students for 7 years. I am looking to utilize my academic knowledge to help those in need with any subjects related to mathematics.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have tutored students through all of the high school mathematics levels from Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry and Pre-Calc since 2007 during my time at UConn.

Algebra 2

I have tutored students through all of the high school mathematics levels from Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry and Pre-Calc since 2007 during my time at UConn.

Differential Equations

I have passed two courses in this subject at the University of Connecticut. One through general physics and one through the math department. This is also required of my degree (Mathematics B.S.) which I earned in Dec. of 2009.

I would be more than happy to upload my transcript or a copy of my degree in order to certify myself in this subject.

Linear Algebra

I have passed three courses in linear algebra at the University of Connecticut. One through the specific course "Linear Algebra" and several others that build on the foundation set in this class such as number theory and numerical analysis I & II. This is also required of my degree (Mathematics B.S.) which I earned in Dec. of 2009.

SAT Math

I have two years experience in teaching SAT math from certified methods using the official SAT blue book and supplemented with additional drills provided by several other books. I recommend purchasing the official SAT study guide (blue book) to supplement studying outside of the lessons.

Statistics

I have completed all undergraduate stat courses up through Statistical Methods. Currently this is at around the STAT 3000 Level at UConn. If you require a more advanced level of statistics tutoring please contact me directly and I will gladly elaborate on any Stat subjects I can be of help with.

Tutor Who Delivers

I commissioned Charles to improve my son's SAT math score. The result - score went from 450 to 620 thus achieving passing score to most good colleges. As a side effect my son's senior school math grade went from C to A. Thank you, Charles, from both of us.
