Award-Winning Calculus Tutors in San Diego, CA
Chris "...Currently, I am finishing my MS in Physics at SDSU. For more than 12 years, I have been tutoring the subjects of Math from Basic Math to Differential Equations, English, Chemistry and Physics, beginning at Patrick Henry HS and later at Grossmont and Cuyamaca Community Colleges. I worked at Mesa College in the Math and Science Tutoring Center, where I also tutored Mechanical Engineering and beginning Japanese..."
Shane "...I was a student instructor for about 4 years in engineering and tutored student athletes throughout my undergrad. My favorite subjects are generally in the STEM category and I really enjoy helping others understand those concepts. My teaching style has always been to really engage students through humor and real world situations; really makes subjects like math and physics easier to relate to..."
Matt "...I really prefer teaching people individually because many people do not learn well in a classroom situation, and it's easy for someone to get left behind without anyone knowing or caring. Every student has different needs, but in general, I want to find the place where you are comfortable with the subject and build from there. Most subjects have a set of basic concepts from which you can derive all the more complicated information..."
Aneesh "...I believe that the best way for students to learn a subject is for them to enjoy what they are learning. As a tutor, I will work as hard as I can to make sure that my students enjoy what they are learning. I understand the importance of being patient with my students and taking the time to understand how my student prefers to learn..."
Julia "...This rewarding experience further emphasized the importance of patience, and finding engaging and relatable activities in order to connect with students. I enjoy taking challenging material, breaking it down into organized key concepts, and supplementing the learning with relatable, real-life examples. I use this same strategy when I tutor students of all ages in math and physics..."
Michael "... While I tutor a variety of topics, my favorite ones are definitely science (biology, chemistry, & physics) and math. Given my background, I can definitely provide many real world applications and develop a good foundation for my students to solidify their understanding. I wholeheartedly believe that with some organization, perseverance and passion (and a bit of fun) one can accomplish any goal they have in mind. These are some of the transferable skills that can be taken beyond academia and into daily life..."
Alexander "...I was also asked to help lecture and tutor an AP Physics C class that was over populated for PUSD. I am comfortable tutoring in many levels of math and science, but I particularly enjoy tutoring higher level science. These science classes are intimidating for many students, and I enjoy helping students overcome their expectations..."
Misa "... I love being a tutor and helping students learn. I have a younger sister which means I have had to help her with school work throughout the years. I have had experience tutoring in many math and science courses at different levels..."
Richard "...Consequently, I’ve worked in education most of my life and aspire to become a medically/educationally transparent pediatrician. I feel all knowledge is accessible to anyone who wants it, so if you ask me, I’ll teach you anything I know how. If there’s ever a concept I come across that I don’t know, I’ll have fun working it through with you any way possible..."
Daniel "...It's therefore always important to have a solid grasp of the basics - to understand the previous steps - before learning each new topic. My approach to tutoring thus focuses less on memorizing formulas and more on understanding why these work and how you can arrive at them yourself. I have always enjoyed being able to help other people and my somewhat unique outlook on mathematics, coupled with my experienced mathematics background, have enabled me to assist many different people in the past. I have experience in teaching people of different ages and different needs, and I understand how to shift my approach to best reach the student..."
