I'm currently a Master's Student in Applied Mathematics at the University of Akron. I enjoy helping others gain an appreciation and understanding for mathematics. I don't think that mathematics is necessarily difficult, but I agree that it's not often taught in the most optimal way. To me, the most enriching part of teaching is that I often get to explain things in new ways, and when I get to see the "light bulb' go off when someone understands something.

I'm currently a Master's Student in Applied Mathematics at the University of Akron. I enjoy helping others gain an appreciation and understanding for mathematics. I don't think that mathematics is necessarily difficult, but I agree that it's not often taught in the most optimal way. To me, the most enriching part of teaching is that I often get to explain things in new ways, and when I get to see the "light bulb' go off when someone understands something.
I've taken everything from Algebra through Linear Algebra and ODEs, as well as a couple of proof writing courses. I've gotten "As" in all math courses from algebra to calculus and high "Bs" in everything else. I don't have a teaching certificate per se, but I do have a passion for mathematics.
I've substitute taught high school mathematics ranging from algebra through calculus. I only have just started tutoring independently for high school mathematics and ACT Math, and it seems to be going well so far. I am eager to continue pursuing this enterprise and honing my teaching skills.
My rate is flexible as are my hours. Again, I may not be as "qualified" as other tutors on here, but what I lack in paper certificates I can more than make up for in patience, enthusiasm, and love of learning/relearning.
