Bio

I have taught junior high, high school and college students for last 15 years. I am focusing on fundamentals for algebra/geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. I graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics. I have taught students for varies math competitions, primarily in AMC 10/12/AIME level. While in school, I am tutoring students to get a better understanding of what they are struggling with and how I can support students to improve their confidence with math learning.

I have taught junior high, high school and college students for last 15 years. I am focusing on fundamentals for algebra/geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. I graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics. I have taught students for varies math competitions, primarily in AMC 10/12/AIME level. While in school, I am tutoring students to get a better understanding of what they are struggling with and how I can support students to improve their confidence with math learning.

One of my core beliefs about math is that most people understand the basic concepts of subjects like algebra, they just don't realize it. Did you ever come home from school and realize one of your siblings had taken some of your Halloween candy? You did algebra. I help people move that understanding from the concrete to the abstract. Please let me know how I can be of assistance to you.

1) Patience. This is probably the most important aspect in being a tutor of any subject. The student whom you are teaching is almost guaranteed to get a problem wrong. You cannot become upset with the student, since you are the teacher. Just remain calm! If you are generally an exceedingly impatient person, then I suggest listening to some smooth jazz or slow songs before you meet with the student. It sounds crazy, but it should work.

2) Skill. First of all, you need to, obviously, be good at math in order to be a tutor. Possibly borrow the student's mathematical text book before you tutor them to refresh you memory of the lessons and brush up on your own skills. The absolute worst thing that can happen to you while tutoring is to not understand what you are trying to teach.

3) Clarity. You need to explain the problems slowly and clearly, so you do not confuse the student even more than he or she already is. Be nice while you explain, and don't forget to smile! You would not want the student to think that you are a mean tutor, or they will not look forward to their lessons and therefore, not be motivated to learn.

Great tutors are masters of their subject matter. They exhibit expertise in the subjects they are teaching and spend time continuing to gain new knowledge in their field. They present material in an enthusiastic manner and instill a hunger in their students to learn more on their own.

I have taught middle to high school students on counting/probability and combinatorics for 10 years. I also tutored college students for their Discrete Math courses. I love this topic as it has lots of applications for the real world and has been applied to many area including computer science, data analysis, and big data. I have also taught students for math competitions related to this subject. I graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics
