About Chad

My name is Chad and I am a seventh and eighth grade math teacher for Kingman Unified School District. I have a degree in middle level education from The University of Akron for math and social studies. I also taught seventh grade math for a year in Beaufort, South Carolina.

I did my student teaching at St. Mary in Wooster for grades 4-6 math. I would be available week days after 5:30 and any time on weekends.

I have always loved math and know that it is a difficult subject for many students. I enjoy watching students grow and gain confidence in their math skills.

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.

Algebra 1

I am currently a seventh grade math and prealgebra teacher for Beaufort County Schools in South Carolina. I have always loved math and have had a special place in my heart for algebra, in particular. I enjoy boosting students' confidence in a difficult subject, like math and algebra, by watching them grow and realize that they can do it.

Basketball

I have played basketball for all of my life, so I do have much experience with the sport. I was not the most talented, but I have learned a lot from my dad who is a coach. I will be a coach of the sport myself, eventually.

I know pretty much every aspect of the game. For example, I am aware of the importance of shooting and ball-handling. For shooting, I go by the acronym Beef. This stands for balance, eyes of the target, elbow straight, and follow through. As far as ball-handling goes, I know a number of exercises.

I also know the ins and outs of offensive strategy, such as man or zone offense. Plus I know many defenses, like man and zone defense and presses like 212 and 1211.

Drums

I was in band from my fifth grade year until my eighth grade year. My greatest strength is reading the music, and the instrument I know best is the snare drum. I also have some experience with the bass drum, the bells, and the tympani.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently a seventh grade math and prealgebra teacher for Beaufort County Schools in South Carolina. I enjoy watching students grow and gain confidence with their math skills. I have a Bachelor's Degree in middle level education (grades 4-9) for math and social studies.

Elementary Math

I am currently a seventh grade math and prealgebra teacher for Beaufort County Schools in South Carolina. I have always loved math. I also know that many students do not like math simply because of a lack of confidence in their skills. I enjoy watching students grow and persevere while realizing their true potential and gaining confidence with their math skills.

English

I am studying middle-level education at the University of Akron for the content areas social studies and math. I also plan to get certified to teach 4-6 English and science. I have been good at grammar and spelling since elementary and my writing has drastically improved since coming to college. I believe that it is important for kids to write about what interests them.

Linear Algebra

Linear algebra, y=mx+b, has always been a strong point of mine. In school, I took algebra one and received high school credit as an eighth grader. I took algebra two as a sophomore, and then took an algebra class that utilized a college textbook as a junior.

Prealgebra

I am currently a seventh grade math and prealgebra teacher for Beaufort County Schools in South Carolina. I enjoy watching students grow and gain confidence with their math skills. I have my Bachelor's Degree in middle level education (grades 4-9) for math and social studies.

Social Studies

I am an education major at the University of Akron. The degree that I am going for is 4-9 social studies and math. I have always had an interest in social studies, particularly history, and have taken many courses. I received mostly A's and some B's in all of them including three classes in middle school, five in high school, and three so far in college (Post-secondary and freshman year). I received a four on the A.P. Government test.

Study Skills

I am a middle-level education major at the University of Akron studying the content areas of social studies and math. Ever since middle school I have always been a good time manager, studyier, and test-taker. I remember I used to get up at about 5 in the morning on the day before a test to review the material. I got a 22 on my ACT, and have only failed 2 academic tests in my life.

Writing

My writing has improved drastically since coming to college. I actually enjoy writing papers now, especially since I am interested in the subject matter. This is something I believe is very important. Students should be able to write about what interests them. I am currently studying middle-level education social studies and math at the University of Akron. I also plan to get certified to teach 4-6 English and science.
