Michigan State University (Biosystems Engineer)
I attended Michigan State University from 2003 to 2008. During that time, I completed many math-based classes, ultimately ending at Calc 4. I struggled at times with the work load associated with advanced mathematics, as well as the pace at which the courses moved. So I found myself attending math help-room sessions and receiving help from tutors. I passed each of my required classes thanks to the help I found from a friendly person who was willing to spend the extra time with me that I needed.
As a result of the assistance I received in my early college experience, I applied to be a math tutor for a special math program at MSU that helped students in middle school and high school. I participated in this program for 3 years, and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to assist others in the same way that I had been helped so much in my own classes. Tutoring is an exciting experience, as no two people learn in exactly the same way. I loved getting to see concepts click on the faces of students I have tutored in the past.
I believe that my success as a tutor in the past has been a result of the ability to put concepts in terms that the student can understand. Often, the student does not see the relevance of a topic and asks the question "When are we ever going to need to use this?" Well, in short, you certainly will. And I believe I can show you some interesting and exciting ways in which a thorough understanding of these subjects can really benefit you.

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.
