About Maclain

Hi! My name is Maclain, and math has always been a passion of mine since early elementary school. I have taken the most challenging math courses available to me and encourage others to push themselves in the same way. I often tutor my younger brother, and am frequently a source of help for some of my peers. I plan to attend Auburn University this fall with an intended major of Mathematics.

One of my favorite things about the subject is that different classes and concepts can be connected together in many different ways. Sometimes a student can see a new topic and be completely lost, but once a connection is made to something they already understand, it becomes much easier. Even connecting math to other subjects like Biology, Chemistry, or Physics can help make a new subject seem familiar. Another way I like to prepare students is to show them every way a question could be asked so they know what to expect when a test comes.

I have earned multiple awards based on my performance in mathematics, including several top 10 finishes in the TMTA State Math competition (one of those being a 1st Place state winner in Pre-Calculus with a perfect score), a 36 on every ACT section, and various math awards at my middle/high school. I have earned an A+ in each subject I intend to tutor in, and will be knowledgeable enough to teach any of them successfully. While I have little formal tutoring experience, I have informal experience with friends and classmates, and have been praised by my teachers for helping other students understand new material. I enjoy understanding the different ways students learn and adapting my style to fit them best.

Be sure to contact me if you are interested in scheduling lessons, or would like to know more about what I am able to teach. I would love to get to know you and help you answer any questions you might have!

We like that he explains, writes it out step by step, so that you understand. Gives new materials and explains different ways so that you get it. He will go over it and use different techniques until you understand
