About Connor

My name is Connor E. I am a recent graduate of North Greenville University with a Mathematics degree in hand! Before I became purely a Mathematics major, I was a Secondary Education-Math major. I was in this degree for 3 years before finally switching, which allowed me to gain valuable experience teaching in the classroom.

I also tutored last semester in our school's math lab, more valuable experience in a one-on-one situation. My expertise, however, is not limited to math. I love working with kids, and have knowledge of all subject areas. I'd love to have the opportunity to help!

My college degree was in math. I was fortunate enough to have always performed well in math dating back to high school and middle school. Any and all math is interesting to me and I would love the chance to tutor in the subject that I've spent the most time! Math can be difficult at times, but I believe that I can clarify the methods, or even explain methods in a different and correct manner, to help the student succeed and move past any difficulty!

I've always enjoyed writing, and grammar is something that is important to me. I had three college classes that focused on writing and grammar, and I made an A in 2 of them (B in the other).

My tutoring approach would be grounded on the idea that I understand what students are going through and how most want learn. Why? Because I was a college student myself about 3 months ago. And it hasn't been too long since I was in high school. I was also an education major that did field experience in a high school, so I can relate to students. I know the struggles they have and the problems they encounter. My biggest strength is that I can communicate concepts in a different way to make sure a student can understand what needs to be understood. Text books and even teachers can be confusing. My job is to ensure understanding, and I will do whatever is necessary to make sure the student I'm working with understands and can be successful.

Please contact me for help! I love being able to help and I don't think anyone should have to go through school unsuccessfully! Available most any time!

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.

ACT Math

I feel qualified to tutor in ACT Math because I have received several years of schooling in all sorts of math. I was a math major in college and have received my math degree. There shouldn't be anything on the ACT that is surprising or new to me in the math section. Also, there are lots of practice tests and questions online that I can research and have available for the student during a tutoring session. I know how to take tests and be successful, which is another aspect of the ACT in which I can help.

Algebra 1

I used lots of algebra and learned not only how to perform concepts, but also how to simplify them for myself and my students when I did student-teaching in classrooms.

Elementary Math

Being a math major in college, I encountered math of various forms. These various forms included elementary math, which forms the foundation for algebra. Algebra forms the foundation for Calculus. Finally, using Calculus forms the foundation for virtually all other types of higher math. Thus, I was using many different types and levels of math at all times during my college career. I am very well-suited to explain all concepts of elementary math.

Elementary Science

Elementary science seems to cover a broad number of subjects, but in a light manner. Fortunately, I've taken all of these subjects in college, and feel as though I could communicate what I've learned and remembered from college.

Grammar

I did well with grammar in high school, and also made 2 A's and 1 B in college English classes.

Prealgebra

Being a math major in college, all forms of math were used. This included some of the concepts that would appear in prealgebra. Algebra is a huge building block in terms of math education, and prealgebra is obviously the major building block for algebra. I feel I would have a great understanding of the material here and many ways to simplify it for better understanding.

SAT Math

I feel qualified to help with SAT Math because I have several years of experience with all kinds of math from being a Math major in school. I now have my math degree. Also, I took the SAT twice and scored well on the math section. I know the format of the test and feel I can help with that, as well as the specific math concepts. There shouldn't be any math on there that is new to me, and I can research and find practice tests and questions online.

Vocabulary

I feel qualified to help in Vocabulary because I have taken 3 college level English courses that all directly dealt with vocabulary. Essays were a huge part of all of the classes, and a good vocabulary was essential. Reading was also required for many of my college classes. Reading college-level material is a great way to improve your vocabulary. I feel very comfortable helping with vocabulary and explaining ways to remember words that are important to the student.

Very knowledgable!

Did a great job helping my sixth grader with his math, and when each tutoring session was over, he came out of it with a better understanding of what was being asked of him. Knowledgeable, timely, and trustworthy, we would definitely use Connor again!
