About Jack

I am a Civil Engineering major with a focus in Traffic/Transportation. I have a strong math background. I have enjoyed math during all my years in school. I have tutored for 10 years from 7th grade to 12th grade including Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra II/Trigonometry. One main thing I tell my students is Practice, Practice, Practice. Repetition is the key in math. Practicing math problems over and over is one of the key ways to master the subject.

My approach to tutoring is to first allow the student to let me know what they know and are familiar with, as well as, what concepts are giving them trouble. We will do some review of previous material so I can understand the amount of foundation they understand. We will go over current math material and problems and really focus on what concepts/problems are giving them the most trouble. I will also review previous tests/quizzes to see what problems were missed and focus on those so the student understands his/her mistakes.

All in all, we want to hone in on problems that are really giving the student the most trouble and keep practicing them over and over. I can make up similar problems during the session for the student to work on for the following week. I want the student to be able to solve the problems on their own because I won't be there when they take the test/quiz. We can go over any problems that the student did not understand. I would ask the parents to make sure the student performs the homework assignment that I assign because it will help them in the long run.
