Utah State University (computer science)
I am a freshman at USU right now majoring in computer science. I have been doing math for as long as I can remember, and I have learned to genuinely enjoy it. But more than learning new concepts, I love to have a chance to teach what I know to people who are still working on their way up. I love teaching, and I truly believe that their is an art to it. A good teacher or helper can change learning from a terrible experience to an amazing one, and there is nothing more gratifying than being the type of person to help make that change.
Although I have never tutored for a job, I have been helping people with math for quite a while. All throughout school, math was always a strong subject that I could shine in, so I often helped people who were struggling with whatever we were learning at the time. That's not to say that I understand everything right off the bat. I have had to go to tutors multiple times for help and to make sure that I was doing things right, so I understand the importance of having a patient and helpful tutor who understands concepts and can effectively communicate them as many times as it takes until the question is understood. Because of this, I feel that I understand what it takes to be an excellent help to anybody who struggles with a subject that I have completed and I would love to be able to.
My policies: I am very confident that I can help anyone out who is struggling with math that I have completed. However, because I have not tutored as a job before, I am more than willing to offer a free lesson to see if I am what you are looking for. After that, you can decide if you want to work with me going forward or if you would prefer to go somewhere else. For scheduling, because I am in college and working, my hours of availability fluctuate, so a new schedule may often have to be set up. That being said, I am lenient if you have to cancel. I only need to know two hours before the appointment so that if I'm at another job I know that I do not have to leave. Also, I believe that math is something that always has to be practiced to stay up to date. Because of this, I prefer to know what concept it is you are going over before the appointment so that I can refresh myself on the subject and maximize the productivity and helpfulness of every session.
Because I'm in the Logan UT area, I'll list the classes I have completed in the terms that the high schools here use.
List of classes in high school: secondary math 1 honors, secondary math 2 honors, secondary math 3 honors, and AP calculus. I am most suited to teach for secondary math 2 honors and lower (This is the class before pre-calc). These classes included algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, among other things. This also includes anything below high school. However, I am still working on calculus in college, and I don't consider myself qualified yet to tutor on anything more than basic concepts for pre-calc and calc.
As someone who majors in computer science and constantly learns math, I can tell you first hand that tutors are a necessary part of learning. If you don't feel they are now, then you will late if you continue. So don't hesitate to get help from someone who loves to give it!
I hope that you like what you see, and I look forward to seeing how we can work together! I am a freshman at USU right now majoring in computer science.

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.
