The world we live in is full of questions and mysteries waiting to be discovered and investigated. Mathematics is the study of patterns in the world around us. As a mathematics tutor, I strive to provide a positive learning environment where students can strive for excellence in critical thinking and problem solving. My mission is to help students develop an intellectual toolbox which can help them solve a broad range of problems. My teaching style is Socratic and emphasizes the cultivation of good habits of mind. I believe that the best way for students to learn mathematics is for them to encounter and wrestle with challenging problems they may not know how to solve immediately. A student learns the material better when they discover the ideas for themselves rather than be told by someone.
In each session, the focus will be on conceptual understanding rather than mere application of rules and procedures. I can coach students needing help in any subject from algebra to calculus, discrete mathematics, linear algebra, and logic for success both inside and outside school. Having tutored mathematics at the college level and worked at several gifted summer programs, I also have experience in mathematical problem solving and working with advanced students. Therefore, I can also provide a rigorous and challenging curriculum for students either seeking additional enrichment or develop advanced problem solving skills needed for success in major math contests.
I hold myself and my students to high standards. In addition to knowledge and skills, personal qualities such as curiosity, persistence and attention to detail are highly encouraged. Sometimes, I may assign take home work for additional practice. Also, I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 12-hour cancellation policy, I do offer makeup classes.
If you are interested, please contact me so we may set up a free consultation meeting. I look forward to hearing from you!
