Dear potential student,

I am math teacher, who studied math and anthropology. I have had a lot of experience tutoring math topics, ranging from pre-algebra to calculus. I have also tutored autistic individuals. Finally, I have a strong background in various social studies fields as well through my work in anthropology, including history and sociology/anthropology. I have been teaching and/or tutoring for years. I tend to tailor my tutoring style to each student, but I have done a few different basic approaches. These include homework help, review of basic concepts and lessons as needed. I am rather flexible.

Here is a more detailed overview of my experience:

For four years as an undergraduate, I ran calculus help sessions as a TA for the math department. I helped students work through any calculus problems, particularly calculus 1 and 2, and I taught any concepts that they were having difficulty with. In addition, I tutored dozens of high school students informally in various math subjects (ranging from algebra to calculus).

I also taught math for seven-months in Nakasongola, Uganda. There I taught trigonometry and Newtonian physics (which is part of Uganda's math curriculum) to the U.S. equivalent of twelfth grade students.

For six summers, I taught autistic students at a special needs summer school. There I taught math, programming, and social skills, primarily one-on-one. From this, I have experience helping students on the autistic spectrum.

Finally in the summer of 2013, I taught junior high math at a summer school program.

As shown, I have had significant experience in tutoring especially in the various fields of math, but I also have expertise in programming, autistic special needs, and social sciences. When I tutor, I generally let the student set the pace of the sessions, according to his or her needs. Often students simply need homework help, in which case we go through the homework together. Some of my students have needed more extensive teaching, and for them, I have built lessons according to their preferences. I hope you consider me for your tutoring needs.
