I am a third year Math and Physics double major at UF. I've been tutoring Calculus for over 2 years now. Not only is it rewarding to help give students an appreciation for math and science, but tutoring also helps me to gain a better core understanding of the material myself. This better understanding allows me to explain things more clearly. As Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."

I am a third year Math and Physics double major at UF. I've been tutoring Calculus for over 2 years now. Not only is it rewarding to help give students an appreciation for math and science, but tutoring also helps me to gain a better core understanding of the material myself. This better understanding allows me to explain things more clearly. As Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."
Therefore, I can approach explaining a problem in many different ways. If you don't understand a certain explanation, I can offer explanations with varying degrees of rigor depending on whether you just want to know enough to pass the class, get an A, or understand it well enough to teach it yourself. Also, I have a strong intuition for what may be going through a students head when they don't understand something. This means that even if you don't know how to put into words what you don't understand, I can still usually figure out whats giving you trouble and try to help.
I've always had a natural talent for math, but that's not to say that I don't understand what issues someone who struggles with it might face. I'm familiar with math all the way up through multivariable calculus, ordinary differential equations, set theory, mathematical logic, linear algebra, abstract algebra, complex analysis, introductory real analysis, and some statistics. I'm also familiar with the introductory physics with calculus sequence, thermal physics, modern physics, first semester classical mechanics, and intermediate electromagnetism.
So if you're interested please contact me and we can try to schedule something that works, my schedule is pretty flexible.
