About Malcolm

Hello!

My name is Malcolm J., a student at Purdue University studying Aeronautical Engineering Technology.

My experiences in high school tutoring fellow students in class for pre-calculus and after reaching Calculus 3 I can teach from basic math up to this point, but I can help with anything you'd like. My experiences working at Space Camp in Huntsville as well as in Izmir, Turkey have allowed me to develop the ability to take complex subjects and topics and put them in to an easily understood version without reducing the content.

What I would normally do with my students, is I would spend the first few minutes getting to know and understand the person I am helping in order to analyze how I can help them, as everyone is different. After, we would jump in to the topic, starting with easier examples before progressing to harder subjects in order to establish understanding. Towards the end, we would review and I would ask the student to teach it back to me. This is the best way to establish understanding.

I've taken the following classes relating to mathematics: Purdue University Calculus III and AP Calculus/Dual-Credit Calculus.

I've taken the following classes relating to World History:
AP World History and Chinese History up to the 1800's.

I'm a bassist at Purdue University, and can read music and sight read well. I'm currently in Purdue's top jazz band and have been a musician for 8 years now. I love music, and anything I don't know, I can learn and then relay.

Thank you,
Malcolm
