About Collin


Bio

Hi my name is Collin C. and I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a focus on Education. I recently joined Wyzant, however I have been tutoring Math outside of Wyzant over the past 4 years. I have tutored math in the subjects of Algebra, Geometry, PreCalculus, PSAT, and SAT testing. At my final semester at the University I also taught an honors algebra II class at a High School which was a part of my internship.

Hi my name is Collin C. and I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a focus on Education. I recently joined Wyzant, however I have been tutoring Math outside of Wyzant over the past 4 years.

If you pick me as a tutor feel free to send me homework problems or any content you are going over to me before our lesson. This way I can provide some valuable notes that you can look at during and after the lesson. During the lesson I'm going to break down math concepts in a way that is easy for you to understand. I'm going to have you attempt problems yourself first. This way I can pinpoint exactly where you are struggling and we can focus on the areas in your math skills that need attention. This is going to save you time and make it so we focus on mastering everything you don't know. The Math lesson is up to you. You can tell me any problem you wish to work on and we can focus on that. You can ask me as many questions as you want, that is no problem!

Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have tutored algebra II for the past 4 years, mainly outside of Wyzant. I also taught an honors algebra II class as part of an internship for the University. I graduated from Grand Valley State University and hold a bachelors of science in mathematics and education! I will do everything in my power to make you succeed in algebra II. I give students that I tutor the option of sending me notes/homework problems before we meet. This is especially beneficial since it allows me to prepare some notes the students may want during the lesson or even to use after the lesson to help them understand the content. I start the lessons by having you work on the math problems. Seeing you do the problem shows me exactly where you are struggling and then we can focus our attention on helping you master those concepts that need more practice. We are not going to waste time by explaining every detail of every concept if you already know the concepts. This way we can get you to master everything that you don't know and really improve your math skills exponentially.

I have a Bachelor of Science In Mathematics/ Education. I have also tutored in the subjects of Algebra/Geometry/Sat Test Prep/PreCalculus over the past 4 years mainly outside of Wyzant. I recommend that you to send me pictures of homework problems or any content that you wish to go over during the lesson before we meet, this way I can prepare some valuable notes before our lesson to help maximize mastery of content.

SAT Math,

SAT Math

I have tutored the SAT math section for the past 5 years, mainly outside of Wyzant's platform. I also have a bachelor of science in Mathematics. I teach SAT testing to students of all different levels whether that be honers students or students that are very behind in SAT prep. No matter which category you fall in, in terms of SAT knowledge, I'm going to help you get the SAT score you desire. If you choose me as a tutor I will provide you with a ten page SAT formula sheet. On that sheet are also tricks that can help you solve certain SAT problems much faster by using a graphing calculator. I usually have students take a practice SAT test before we start. This allows both me and the student to find where weaknesses and strengths are in mathematical ability. If you have already taken SAT practice tests and know exactly which areas of the SAT you struggle in we can work on those specific questions. I have a large question bank that we can use to master understanding of specific content areas. There are 4 areas of math in the SAT. The areas include “The heart of algebra”, “problem solving and data analysis” , “Passport to advanced math”, and “Additional topics in math”. In order to increase SAT scores most significantly I usually have students do “additional topics in math” questions last since those questions contain only 10% of SAT questions, while other content areas contain around 30%. Here are the types of questions that come up for different areas of the SAT. -HEART OF ALGEBRA (33%) of questions Includes questions related to linear functions/ linear graphs/systems of linear equations/ linear word problems. -PROBLEM SOLVING AND DATA ANALYSIS (29%) of questions Includes ratios, rates, and proportions, percents, units, table data, scatterplots, linear/exponential growth, center, spread, and shapes of distributions, data collection. -PASSPORT TO ADVANCED MATH (28%) of questions -includes quadratics, radicals and rational exponents, linear/quadratic systems, operations with polynomials, manipulating

Excellent Teacher Helped me a lot

Really helped me understand concepts I had forgotten. He was really good at explaining things. I would recommend him to others.

Heather, 6 lessons with Collin

Awesome

Collin is awesome. His voice is pleasant and his cheerful demeanor make him very easy to follow. He makes math fun and I always feel way better after our lesson. 12/10

Joel, 4 lessons with Collin

great session

Collin is a great tutor! Although I sent him a message today and now he has seem to disappear and I cannot find him

Great teacher!

Requested a lesson for Algebra and working with Collin has been amazing he helped be breakdown the meaning of problems and was very patient. Thank you for all your help!

Tamera, 4 lessons with Collin

great session

Collin is a great tutor! My son is learning a lot more now that they are meeting. We will be setting Up another lesson soon.

Kim, 4 lessons with Collin

great first lesson!

Collin was very knowledgeable and patient with my son. My son said he learned more in the hour than he has the whole time in class (the past month).

Kim, 4 lessons with Collin

Great teacher

Collin helped with Pre Calculus and he is an excellent teacher! He was prepared, knowledgeable, and very helpful. Have already scheduled with him again! We highly recommend him.

Rebecca, 3 lessons with Collin

Significantly Raised SAT Score

Collin has worked consistently with our daughter and it has led to a much higher score. He gives clear explanations and works through tough problems in a way that allows our daughter to do it on her own the next time. Keep it up Collin!

Beckett, 17 lessons with Collin

Nice and thorough tutor.

Collin went above and beyond to help my daughter with a very difficult geometry test review. He was very supportive and patient in dealing with some challenging problems.
