About Elijah

I am senior at the University at Buffalo minoring in Physics, majoring in Applied Mathematics, and I am also working on a creative certificate. I have been volunteer tutoring for over 4 years. I take pride when the students I tutor learn something new or understand a new concept. I know that learning takes time and practice to learn something new, and it can frustrating when you don't understand the first few times. That is why as a tutor I believe that patience and positive reinforcement is key in the learning process.

My approach to math, or to any subject, is to find a relationship between the knowledge of the student and the material that the student is trying to learn. I focus on the student being able to make his or her own connections. I believe that this is the best way for the student, to not just grasp the material, but to remember the material for a much longer time.

Working with Elijah is helping my son to gain not only knowledge, but confidence with Algebra. My son has had three lessons so far and will continue to work with Elijah. We would recommend him for any struggling math student.
