About Cole

Hi, my name is Cole. I have been tutoring high school students for five years in advanced math and sciences, especially working with AP and Dual enrollment. I recently graduated high school with a scholastic diploma, so young students may feel less uncomfortable than they would be with an older adult. I earned a medal for science in my junior year. I was math and science student of the year (two separate awards) at Mountain view high school. I received a score of 5 on the exams of AP Chemistry, AP Physics B, AP Biology, AP calculus BC, AP Psychology, and AP Physics C. I have a flexible schedule and love meeting new people. I tend to be very relaxed with my tutees as it makes them more comfortable. I have been told that I tutor in an unusual and effective way. I participated in the I-Persist Mentoring program for Physics I at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute during the fall of 2016.

As previously mentioned, I have tutored for five years and did very well in all of my math and science classes throughout high school even though they were mostly all advanced. I typically tutor using five steps. The first step is to explain the concept of the material and how to proceed. The second step I take is to show the student how to do a problem by doing a few myself. Next, I ask the student to try to do a few problems themselves and allow them to ask questions along the way. Fourth, I correct them if they are wrong or praise them if they are right. Lastly, I move to the next subject or repeat the steps if they were wrong. I try hard to explain and describe why they were wrong and how to improve their skills to make sure they get more right in the future.

I am willing to tutor Monday through Saturday preferably online. It's important to know that I treat all races and genders equally and have no problem with any culture. I do know a bit of Spanish but would prefer not to tutor anybody whose first language is not English, unless they are comfortable being tutored in English.

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.

Very patient

We were very happy with how patient Cole was today. I wasn't sure if online tutoring would be effective, but it worked so well, the webcam view and whiteboard made it feel as if he was here. Thank you Cole and we look forward to continuing to work with you!
