I am a third year student at GMU and a Computer Engineering Major. I have taken several Math classes and I enjoy them very much. I would like to tutor High School level students in Algebra, Precalculus, Prealgebra and any other math subjects. I want to tutor because I enjoy teaching Math. I feel that I have a very good idea as to why students struggle with this subject and I can adapt to the needs of the student. It is very important for me to communicate with the student and find out what he/she is struggling to understand.
I have taken very advanced Maths at this point in my college career, which is where my experience in Math stems from. I also have experience tutoring since I used to tutor kids through my High School. Whenever a parent asked the school for a tutor they would forward them to me. I was able to tutor a wide range of ages (8-16 years old) and subjects at that time. Now that I'm a few years into my college education, I have an even better understanding of more subjects. I would say my strongest subject is Algebra 1 and 2. I find these to be very important Maths, because they will be expanded on in future Math classes. Having a good understanding of Algebra means having an easier time with Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Linear Algebra throughout college.
I would preferably like to focus on High School Math because I believe that grasping mathematical concepts early in life is the key to understanding much more complicated Maths later on. Also because I have a very firm understanding of these Maths by now, and can teach them in many different ways. I can show the student many different ways to understand the material, so that if they find a certain method confusing, I can explain it to them in a different way. I can also relate certain Math topics to other Math topics. If a student understands a certain topic very well, I will return to that topic when teaching other topics to show the similarity between them and so they feel comfortable with the new material. Similarly I can give them a glimpse of what future Math classes will involve, so that they can be prepared when that time arrives.
I feel most comfortable working with High School students, but I could do some college courses, just ask. I can definitely help prepare for college placement exams. So contact me if you or your child are looking to boost your grade or just get a better understanding of Math. Hello,

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.
I have been playing Chess for years. I learned how to play about 10 years ago, but I started playing it seriously about four years ago. I used the Chessmaster Grandmaster edition computer software to learn how to play which was taught by Grandmaster Josh Waitzkin. Since then I've read books, online forums, and articles on how to play the game.
I've used a Linux bash terminal extensively and know all of the common commands. I've done some bash scripting for automating sequences of commands. I feel very comfortable on a Linux terminal.
