I am a science graduate of UNC-CH. I have extensive background in working with children and adults and have tutored for over 5 years. I definitely care for all of my students and for that reason, I create personal assessments just for them to see where they are at. Most of the students I have taught have gone onto doing very well in their subject matter and I have had students that have gone on to work with me for months with good results. For this reason, my continuity sets me apart from many others. My goal is to have students appreciate and overcome their subject matter that they struggled with prior to my tutoring. I also think that my advising is very helpful for students and their parents when they are deciding to prepare for higher education.
One of the things I always appreciate about tutoring is that my students ask me a lot of questions. The more they ask the better; otherwise, I ask them a lot of questions. I always try to make my tutoring sessions inquisitive, fun, and visual because I know that in terms of math students need to know why they are doing certain problems. I also emphasize on working a lot of problems out in my lessons because then my students become pro in those types of materials. The ultimate task in tutoring for me eventually is to see my students grow independent and stand up to whatever challenge that comes their way in the current and future.
Points to be noted:

The price rate for my tutoring is always negotiable. More than the amount of money I earn, I care more about aiding students and parents who care for success in academics.
Rizul was a very knowledgeable and patient tutor for my daughter. She was very thorough in explaining an helping my daughter understand the material she was studying.
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.
Algebra 1 is a topic that will constantly be the basis for your math classes (including calculus). When I teach this course, I prefer that my students do many problems to get as much practice out as possible so as to consolidate it in memory. I also conceptually explain where these formulas come from and why they are important. All of my students prefer my real world examples that make algebra 1 possible to understand.
This can be a beast for some and for others a pretty straightforward course. If it seems hard, there is absolutely no shame in showing that anxiety. The earlier you show it the better since this course leads many to do pre-calculus which will require some knowledge of graphs and shifts. I know that to teach this course, I will try to work as many problems as possible with the student so that they can do the questions automatically.
Well history can be a lot of memorization and some people just don't like that. However, it is exciting to learn things from the past and at least be competent on what event led to another. I have taken many history courses and I can tell you that if you want help, there is no better person than me. I will make memorizing a thing of the past and have this course feel as if you have just watched an awesome action packed movie.
Currently, I am a chemistry major. Tons of people struggle with this course and I particularly have experience in it. I don't want this subject to be a hit or miss for people because if you want to do anything science related, you cannot be deterred from going into that route just because you cannot handle intro chem. If you're taking honors, get help now. If you're taking AP, you better get help now because you definitely want to do well enough in your AP exam to skip intro level chemistry. I will tell you if you master this subject, you will not have to fear college chemistry or any of its requirements because it shows that you know how to study. This is precisely what I want you to get at.
In most schools, elementary math is not just 2+2, it's a lot more. Sometimes, a child will feel left out at such an early stage that they may never have interest in math again. This should never happen to anyone because truth be told, anyone can get a jump start in this subject. All that is needed is a knowledgeable and patient person to lead the road. If your child is struggling, you can definitely count on me because I don't want anyone feeling left behind in something that could decide their future. Every child should have the option and freedom to choose his/her field and not be deterred later on due to these elementary weaknesses.
Elementary science can get confusing and frustrating at times because none of the students are really taught the basics properly. They just simply memorize at best actually. This is why we hear commercials like, "Daddy, why is the sky blue?". However, I have those basics to fill in the gap. I distinctly remember my experience and all I will tell my students is that "Great, you have me now, so don't worry".
When I first took geometry, I heard from students how hard it was and so I worked a lot for the course. Down the road when I think about it, it was probably the easiest course I took. I think the most important thing that people cannot seem to grasp is the theorems that come with the subject. They can be annoying and a lot of people just don't try to grasp them. If you are struggling with this subject all you need is someone like me who still has these valuable theorems in mind. I will teach you these theorems in a fun way where memorizing will be minimum and understanding is tons.
If this is the course you're being taught in middle school, there is nothing to fear from it. Its content can be intimidating at first but you cannot let it defeat you. As a tutor for Algebra I and II, I can tell you that I will prepare you very well so that you are ready to face the content ahead.
This is an introductory course and can be challenging to a lot of students as it is completely new to them. However, if you feel absolutely clueless in this course, you definitely need to gear up and ask me because this course should be a fun and education ride for you. Once you have this under your belt, you can practically do your future algebra classes in your sleep.
The bane of life has approached. No, actually, it's just pre-calculus. This course has little relevance to calculus but you still need to survive it to cross the border line. All the graphs and shifts can be really confusing and the conceptual parts can be excruciatingly painful, but I will help you get across and through with the subject.
This subject is not a subject, it is a test that requires both fast thinking and understanding. The way to approach this subject is to some good tricks and be strong in your basics. If the basics are ruining your scores, then I am the right person to talk to. Once you have that under your belt, you can work on your speed.
So many people go into this portion with no knowledge of what a modifier is. It is probably the one subject that bites people because it makes sure that you know your grammar. However, it is also one of the easiest courses to improve on. I know the trick that will get your points up and running so that you don't feel hopeless.
If you are just wanting to know how to spell, you shouldn't fear, this is an important skill to have. Having problems in the task? I'm your right person.
Trigonometry is VERY and I mean VERY important for precalculus and the future calculus series. If you need help, don't let the year pass you by and then lament over how the future classes just speed ahead without your consent. It can be rough start and you will recognize that this subject can really shorten some of the things you will need to memorize later on. If you need help, you should definitely get my help. I am always willing to work with students who are extremely anxious about this course because you shouldn't be.
