Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Math tutors
"I have even tutored for two bilingual students from the Dominican Republic, and most recently, I tutored math and science for the Youth Technology and Education Center near the Central West End. I have taken a variety of advanced math, science, and economic courses throughout high school and college, so I am experienced with these fields of study. When I tutor a student, I have found that I am good at breaking down difficult questions (such as a complicated math problem or a wordy LSAT prompt) into much simpler parts, and I am experienced in teaching students the fundamental and more basic concepts as well. My tutoring philosophy has always ...

"Hence, my insurance job! However, I absolutely love math and cannot wait to have my job where I get to teach it every day. I feel that the best way to help someone learn is to make sure that they actually understand how to do something and why they are doing it, so that they will be able to apply the method to more than one single problem. I also feel that everyone learns differently; I am very sensitive to that and adjust my teaching methods accordingly. It is very important to me that the student thoroughly understands the concepts and not just how to do one problem. It's a great feeling to get the right answer, but it's an even greater feeling to ...

"Chemistry. It was a wonderful experience, and I have learned so much: not just good teaching methods, but also how to relate to students on a personal level. This, I feel, is more important because it helps me connect the concepts that I'm teaching to something that they are more familiar with. While my thirst to get into the lab has brought me to San Diego State, tutoring gives me a way to help students that still connects me to the teaching experience."

"I have since moved back to San Diego where I am currently attempting to earn my Master's of Fine Arts degree. My experience tutoring starts in high school, where I tutored peers and younger siblings in all areas of school work. At USD, I tutored general and organic chemistry to undergraduates.

" There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments. I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in math and science. I have an informal, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN ...

" I have worked with middle school, high school and college students for over five years, and I recently completed my student teaching with the tenth and eleventh grade Geometry and Intermediate Algebra II. I enjoy tutoring students and helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve, both academically and socially. I try to employ a variety of techniques to accommodate the different backgrounds, learning styles, and academic and career goals of the students during teaching. I am constantly inspired by the progress and enthusiasm of the students. During my free time I like to read books, watch movies or paint." ...

"I love algebra because it's so neat and there's always a right answer, and I enjoy helping students realize that it's more straightforward than it seems. I learned Spanish as a second language, and becoming fluent was one of the most exciting things I have ever done. Helping beginners to feel comfortable with the language is very rewarding. Last, I have worked with so many students who have great ideas, but struggle to write them down effectively in the ways that teachers, tests and colleges require."
