Hello, my name is Joseph P., and I am a sophomore in the University of Urbana-Champaign studying Mathematics! I graduated from Plainfield East High School in 2020. In high school, I was involved in band all four years, did cross-country for 2 years in sophomore and junior year. I have also participated in the math team for all four years, making it to state every single year. Lastly, I have done Mu Alpha Theta, which is the math honors society that helps with tutoring those that are in need with math help. I have many hours in school of tutoring students of all grade levels in high school from this, and I take pride in how I can be a positive influence and helper with my knowledge in math.

My teaching style involves a lot of engagement from the tutor to the tutee. I like to talk to the other students and make sure they understand the material that I teach them. I try to make different examples from the material we are currently learning that day, so they can understand the material to the fullest extent. My current tutoring experience has only been at school, so I mostly reteach what students have already been taught, helping them with specific formulas or certain concepts from their homework. I like to make it so that I demonstrate a problem, perhaps even show multiple ways to solve a problem, then I have the tutee apply those strategies and try it on their own.

My main goal is for everyone to understand math and its fundamentals. I want everyone to improve in their math skills, as it not only benefits themselves, but I believe that math is an important subject to learn through grade school. I completely understand how math can be frustrating at times, but I try to make it as simple and straightforward as possible without any confusion. I am open to any feedback as I am still new to professional tutoring. If you have any interest in having me as your tutor, or if you have any questions, let me know! Any positive comments and constructive criticism is welcome!
