I have experience tutoring for the past few years, both independently and as a math tutor at Eastern Kentucky University. For two of the three years I have attended EKU, I have been tutoring my peers in math. I love answering questions from other students and watching their understanding grow. I enjoy math, and seeing the ways in which it ties the world together.

I have experience tutoring for the past few years, both independently and as a math tutor at Eastern Kentucky University. For two of the three years I have attended EKU, I have been tutoring my peers in math. I love answering questions from other students and watching their understanding grow. I enjoy math, and seeing the ways in which it ties the world together. From the simple calculation of an hourly salary to the more complicated calculations determining the exact position in 3-D space of a thrown object at any given time, math governs everything at the fundamental level. The understanding of math, therefore, is worthwhile and helpful, and I enjoy helping students reach this understanding.
I have a lot of experience tutoring math, especially in algebra. My experience and understanding of this area gives me multiple explanations for a given concept, whether the explanation be visual/graph-oriented, or logic/number based in nature. Because of this, I can also often supply the elusive "But Why?" explanation that students search for.
It is my philosophy that no one is "bad" at math. There may be fundamental misunderstandings we have about the inner-workings of math, but once those misunderstandings are corrected, we are free to build our understanding higher. If you find yourself struggling with math, it may be because the "foundation" has been laid improperly and must be restructured and/or reinforced.
