About Sade

My tutoring career began during my junior year of college. For two years, I worked at the Math academic center. Students could simply walk in and receive help with lower level, undergraduate Math courses, including but not limited to, Pre-calculus and Calculus. Simultaneously, I worked as a Physics learning assistant. My main task was to design and teach supplemental exercises for a General Physics class. Students were divided into groups of three to four and asked to complete these exercises on specific Algebra based Physics problems.

Upon graduation, I began my career as a middle school teacher at Riverdale Avenue Middle School. I taught seventh and eighth grade Science and Math. This part of my career was especially important for developing my abilities as a teacher. It was here I learned skills such as modifying teaching techniques, differentiating lessons, simplifying problems and solutions into easily understandable steps, and most importantly patience. Currently, I serve as a graduate teaching assistant and apply these skills every day. I teach an introductory Math course that satisfies the Math requirement for student attempting to earn a bachelor's degree.

I am currently working to earn a Master of Science for Teaching in Mathematics. This is an intermediate step in achieving my ultimate goal, a doctorate in Mathematics. My knowledge of Mathematics combined with my teaching experience allow me to provide students with the necessary tools for success. I measure my success, as well as yours, on your improvement and growth in this subject area. In addition to being a Math tutor, I am also a Math student. Therefore, I am fully aware of the difficulties you may experience. I understand Math can be frustrating and a significant part of my tutoring method is to embrace that frustration rather than ignore it.

The most successful students are products of a well forged relationship between student and tutor. I look forward to combining my abilities with yours to make you the best student possible!

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.

Logic

I am qualified because I have been doing mathematical proofs for several years. Logic is an important part of solving such problems. I am well versed in both pictorial and verbal representations of logical statements, including but not limited to, negation, conjunction, disjunction, conditional, and biconditional.
