I am a recent college grad from the University of Miami with a simultaneous passion for both learning and teaching. I have been tutoring in Math and English for four years, from an age range of 8-18. I just love learning about everything, which is why I double majored in International Studies and Anthropology with minors in Creative Writing and Modern Languages (Japanese). This earned me a 3.7 college GPA and induction in the Anthropological Honors Society at UM. As for high school, I was in...
I am a recent college grad from the University of Miami with a simultaneous passion for both learning and teaching. I have been tutoring in Math and English for four years, from an age range of 8-18. I just love learning about everything, which is why I double majored in International Studies and Anthropology with minors in Creative Writing and Modern Languages (Japanese). This earned me a 3.7 college GPA and induction in the Anthropological Honors Society at UM. As for high school, I was in the Science, National, English, History, and Spanish Honors Societies and ranked third in my entire class. I have taken AP and Honors classes as well as Dual Enrollment and so can understand the plight of these students!
Although I am naturally an experienced and creative writer who excels at English and consider it my best subject, I highly enjoy teaching Math and unraveling its secrets to my students. I've found that the majority of them are frustrated because many of their teachers teach them to memorize rather than UNDERSTAND what it is that they're doing, something I myself once underwent when I took math in high school. It wasn't until I finally understood it with the right teacher that I came to enjoy doing it, an experience I'm eager to share with students. I myself once struggled in Math, and so this is where I connect with and understand my students the most and inspire them to succeed.
I try my very best to help the student understand what they are doing. Whether it is homework help or understanding a subject, I want the student to truly understand for themselves rather than have the work done for them. My method is to have them understand the "why" in concepts rather than just the "how", so that they understand rather than memorize concepts they will soon forget.
I tutor on weekends only and prefer to meet in a designated library or a Barnes & Noble bookstore. I am willing to work in other locations if they prove convenient enough.
I hope my profile meet your standards. I nonetheless hope for the best of luck in your studies and endeavors!
Great interaction. My son feels more confident and willing to ask for help. She has the ability to communicate on a level that he understands, an easier flow. Such a relief of frustration! He actually was happy after doing algebra. Previously it was a true grind for everyone. Thank you!Darcy, 4 lessons with Deeani
