The University of Massachusetts Lowell
Hello my name is Jonathan and I am a chemical engineer graduate from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. My objective is to help students understand science and mathematics, which are my two favorite subjects. One of the main reasons why I comprehend science and mathematics well is because of my problem solving techniques. In both subjects but mainly in mathematics, there are approaches to break the problem into multiple steps making it easier to solve. Once you are able to find the correct approach, you will realize that the other problems are similar. It is important to make sure to break up the problem into steps or else you will have a difficult time trying to obtain the solution. After taking a lot of science and mathematics courses during college, I am confident in tutoring students from the elementary to the college level in science and mathematics.
I was a former tutor at Lowell High School during my freshman year of college and currently tutor students around the Malden, MA area. I would like to learn how kids interpret problems so I can be more helpful in developing their problem solving techniques. For tutoring, I like the students to use scrap paper and to approach each problem step by step. Once they have difficulty on a certain problem, they can refer back on their scrap paper and use it to solve the problem. Once they feel very comfortable understanding the subject, I will give them a quiz to see how well they can retain the material.

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.
I took the ACTs twice and the section I had my best success in was in math. I also took courses like algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and trigonometry in high school; so I have good understanding of the material that will be on the ACTs.
I took Algebra 1 freshman year of high school. It was one of my favorite courses. In Algebra one, you solve for the variable in the equation. For example 80= 5x +20, where x would equal 12.
I am currently a Chemical Engineering graduate. Core courses went in depth with integration and derivation mathematical equations, understanding the theory and driving force behind the reaction. Main core classes are Energy Balances and Intro to Thermodynamics, Material Balances, Separations with Mass Transfer, Heat Transfer, Chem Reaction, and Process Dynamic & Controls.
I took geometry in my sophomore year of high school. In geometry, you need to know how to solve the area, angle, and length of given the shape.
I took physical science in middle school and a little bit in high school. Physical science has a little of every science combined in one. I also use to be tutor students in physics, chemistry and biology in Lowell High School two years ago.
I have taken physics in both freshman year of high school and college. Physics is the science that is based on mathematics and a little memorization. You have to know certain laws like Newton's law for example. Also you need to know the formulas so that you can be able to solve problems.
I have taken the SAT twice. Mathematics was the section I scored the highest out of the three. Even though every SAT is different, the material is still the same. The mathematics section has algebra and geometry. I will help the students by teaching how to solve the problem and also by process of elimination (since SAT are all multiple choice).
I have taken Trigonometry in my senior year of high school. In trigonometry you need to know how to interpret graph and finding the limits on the graphs.
