Bio

I love tutoring because it is important to me that students have an accessible way to engage with material and to give them attainable goals which foster their belief that they can succeed in any class. I have a year of teaching experience as a Supplemental Instruction Leader at my university in Calculus and Chemistry, and both formal and informal tutoring in Spanish throughout high school.

I love tutoring because it is important to me that students have an accessible way to engage with material and to give them attainable goals which foster their belief that they can succeed in any class. I have a year of teaching experience as a Supplemental Instruction Leader at my university in Calculus and Chemistry, and both formal and informal tutoring in Spanish throughout high school. My teaching philosophy is that students should never be ashamed of where they are at, and that a topic is explained correctly when it is obvious to the student what it means and how to apply it. I have over 200 hours of tutoring experience including experience as a teaching assistant, Supplemental Instruction leader, tutor, and a teacher of short online classes. Outside of academic activities I enjoy knitting, sewing, and watching old movies.

Teaching and tutoring calculus is what renewed my interest in tutoring in recent years. Though I love teaching a variety of subjects, I especially enjoy how math problems can be broken down into a variety of steps and techniques that can be used with a number of problems. This is important to me because oftentimes, a list of key ideas and strategies tends to really clear up any confusion, both with how the problem works and how it relates to other ideas in the class. If presented with a particularly difficult problem, I like to compare it to other problems the student has done that they do understand, but talk about how and why it is different so it can be more approachable.

If you are interested in setting something up, feel free to message me, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible! I look forward to meeting you!

Amazing teacher/tutor ! Lucky to find her!!

Savannah is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and patient. She is able to emphasize with struggling students and able to find a way to help them learn the course content when the real teacher is not. She has taken the stress and worry away and makes learning fun and engaging. In turn building confidence in learning.
