Hello! My name is Sydney. I just received my bachelor's of science degree in Physics Education.
My goal as a tutor is to improve a student's understanding. First, I find out where there are gaps in understanding by testing a student on different subject areas. This helps me get to know what a student does and does not know. In order to fill in gaps of understanding, I make up individualized problems that hone in on what they do know in order to teach them something new.
Another important skill I teach is problem solving. This is my favorite skill to teach because because I know it is so very important in upper level math and science classes. To teach problem solving, I create individualized problems that make the student think outside the box. These problems are challenging, but they are not too difficult that they are outside a student's skill set.

Do not hesitate to ask if you feel the rate is too high. I am willing to negotiate a rate for each tutoring situation, depending on the difficulty of the material, the distance I need to travel, etc.
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.
