About Arthur

Hello, my name is Arthur. I graduated from a small charter school in North Carolina where I took AP Calculus, Biology, Language, and Literature. Initially starting as a Chemistry major, I have since switched to Engineering. I have tutored Calculus, Physics, and a few other subjects at my school, Florida Polytechnic University, for almost 2 years. Additionally I have helped prepare and run a Back2Basics seminar that refreshes students in basic math rules, conversions, and trigonometry while president of our Physics Club.

I have found that higher level math involves having memorized numerous formulas. Knowing how each individual function, sin cos log ect., relates to each other can make it much easier to remember all that information. More importantly, it can provided the insight to figure out what formula to use in what way. A chief complaint I've had in tutoring in being able to easily follow in class, but not knowing how to approach the problem to make the first step, something I hope to be able to help with.

Being able to work individually with someone who know the material well is a very important aspect of learning that is almost impossible to provide in a standard classroom environment. Students all learn at an individual pace. When faced with new material, it is easy to get overwhelmed, however being able to talk it through with a tutor provides the ability to raise questions and confirm understanding before moving forward. A small portion of forgotten information can cause a whole lecture to be incomprehensible in a classroom setting, whereas I can easily provide individual attention necessary.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Calculus

I have tutored Calculus I&II at my school, Florida Polytechnic University, for about 2 years. I recently finished Calculus III and began summer break, so have the subject fresh in my memory. Additionally, I do have a Calculus book to use as a tool to assist in tutoring.

Physics

I have tutored Physics for over a year and was the founding president of our physics society.

Reading

I have always been an avid reader since elementary school. This has greatly helped my vocabulary through exposure to new words, and has also improved my ability to garner meaning through context clues, something I hope to pass on.
