About Cole


Bio

Hi, my name is Cole. I was a high school science and math teacher in Virginia for two years. I have been tutoring high school students for over eight years in advanced math and sciences, especially working with AP and Dual enrollment. I am still fairly young, so young students may feel more comfortable than they would be with an older adult. I finished my bachelor's with a GPA of 3.82 at a rigorous and science-oriented university (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) and am currently working on...

Hi, my name is Cole. I was a high school science and math teacher in Virginia for two years. I have been tutoring high school students for over eight years in advanced math and sciences, especially working with AP and Dual enrollment. I am still fairly young, so young students may feel more comfortable than they would be with an older adult. I finished my bachelor's with a GPA of 3.82 at a rigorous and science-oriented university (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) and am currently working on my Master's in Norway. I received a score of 5 on the exams of AP Chem, AP Physics B, AP Biology, AP Calc BC, AP Psych, and AP Physics C. I love meeting new people. I am here because I enjoy tutoring! I tend to be very relaxed with my tutees as it makes them more comfortable.

As previously mentioned, I have tutored for many years and did well in all of my math and science classes so far. I typically tutor using five steps. The first step is to explain the concept of the material and how to proceed. The second step I take is to show the student how to do a problem by doing a few myself. Next, I ask the student to try to do a few problems themselves and allow them to ask questions along the way. Fourth, I correct them if they are wrong or praise them if they are right. Lastly, I move to the next subject or repeat the steps if they were wrong. I try hard to explain and describe why they were wrong and how to improve their skills to make sure they get more right in the future.

If you would like to request a lesson, please see my availability and send me a message at least 24 hours before you want the lesson. I am usually fairly busy during the week, but if I have availability then I might be able to schedule something.

It's important to know that I treat all races and genders equally and have no problem with any culture. I do know a bit of Spanish and Norwegian but would prefer not to tutor anybody whose first language is not English, unless they are comfortable being tutored in English.
