About Chukwuma

I am a college sophomore majoring in mechanical engineering. I am proficient in relating to kids, as I have been a camp counselor, teaching assistant, and mentor, I was a PAL member in high school as well. I was a private tutor my junior and senior year of high school, that experience has helped me grow in teaching information and tutoring, especially when they aren't as interested in the subject. Having that friendship with the student, is essential because it removes the tension that they might feel in the classroom, and allows them to have a more open approach to the subject at hand.

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.

Algebra 1

I took algebra 1 pre-AP my Freshman year in high school. Having a solid algebra background is essential, because that is what all math topics are derived from. Being in calculus I am seeing the how blessed I was to have an amazing algebra teacher, it is truly benefiting at this stage in my math career. I made a 96 year average in that class.

Bible Studies

I am an Adult Youth Leader at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church. I am a Confirmed Catholic and have attended Seminary school.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a PAL. It is a service-learning organization, and mentoring children is at our core. My intellect and experience would be of great use to them. I understand kids very well, working as a 2013 summer camp counselor, I've become a whole lot better with dealing with kids and teaching them.

Elementary Math

I use to tutor 6th grade math and algebra, and passed both qualifications test offered by WyzAnt.

Geography

I took pre-AP Geography my freshman year in high school. The studying of the world, places, cultures and history is truly fascinating. I made an A average in that class, and knowing where countries are is crucial, especially when it comes to high classes such as US history and World history they will be required to take later on. I have a solid back ground with world geography, and I'm sure it would be beneficial to others.

Microsoft Windows

In high school, I took Business Information Management (BIM), that has made me proficient with all Word processors. Throughout my educational career, I've had to type frequent papers and that has solidified my computer skills.

Prealgebra

Pre-algebra is the gate way to upper math, and ensuring it's understanding is necessary for a child's future endeavors in the field of mathematics. Taking all math courses including pre-algebra, all the way to calculus. My background in math is solid, and tutoring in the field of algebra will be one at it's best.

Soccer

I've played soccer for as long as I can remember. I've played for high school for 3 years, and just recently got accepted into the adult league. Coaching soccer is a natural ability that comes with loving the sport. I know drills and workout regiments that will help create and effective player.

TAKS

Getting commended every year on all 4 TAKS subjects, I've understood the methods of test successfully. Several test taking strategies can be utilized, to reduce the number of available options. Although, the TAKS test has been done with and now replaced with the STARR test, my strong AP background in 4 core subjects will provide success.
