# Award-Winning Geometry Tutors in Cross Plains, WI

Joel ...students in computer science, especially object-oriented programming; mathematics, from middle school mathematics to multivariable calculus and differential equations; preparation for the ACT, SAT, and AP tests; and topics in literature and history. My favorite subject to tutor is probably calculus because calculus really opens students’ options for further exploration in math, science, economics, and pretty much every other STEM field. When it comes to tutoring, I believe that in order to give useful feedback to...

Olivia ...industries, new terms, new people. It's a wonderful job because it makes me a permanent student of the world, but I miss interacting with young students. I love teaching because I love learning, and I want to help other people find that same love of learning that I had growing up, because that guides me through life. I especially enjoy teaching writing and math. I'm sure this is heavily influenced by the fact that I...

Lucian I have a lot of experience teaching & tutoring and have completed a wide variety of standardized test with excellent scores.... Start by trying to achieve a broad understanding and refining it as needed.... Introduce myself, meet the student, and identify areas of strength and weakness.... Short breaks, fun problems.... Ask leading questions until the student understands, and then try to build a deeper understanding.... Try to make the passage seem more approachable or put it in simpler terms.

Gregory I am an applied mathematician, specializing in probability. I used to teach at the university level, but moved into industry. After being away from teaching for some time I found that I still want to play a part-time role in education. It was my experience that one on one teaching in office hours brought the most benefit to students, so tutoring is the best way for me to take part in education.... It is a best to transmit knowledge and skills in a way tailored to each student's unique mindset. This fact makes classroom teaching very difficult, so for many students one-on-one tutoring is an optimal method to learn.

Matthew ...in math, which is a subject that both challenges and excites. Math applies to everything and it's only stipulation is basic and irrefutable logic. Learning math occurs through a combination of instruction and participation. Instruction gives you direction and allows you to make the most out of your time spent studying, but ultimately it is participation in examples and critical thinking that will allow you to really master something. I love mathematical subject matter and...

After seven years, I sold the school, and dabbled in education as a substitute...

Adam For most of my life, I've been a teacher of some sort. In middle and high school, I was an arithmetic and algebra tutor for underprivileged kids; in college, I volunteered in the math and writing centers; now, I'm teach ethics...... Over the course of my teaching career, I've learned that every student has a different background, learning style, and set of ambitions. In light of this, my guiding principle is to always meet students where they stand, without judgment.

UW Madison - Current Undergrad, Business

Anna ...tend to get very enthusiastic about the subject at hand. It is my strong belief that they key to success in academics is true understanding. When a student understands why something works, memorization becomes a tool that is only rarely needed. Students that understand concepts can also tackle complex and challenging questions with confidence. As a tutor, I work to ensure that my students fully understand the material with which they are working.... It is absolutely essential that students understand why they are doing something rather than just memorizing when to do it. When a student truly understands a concept, then memorization is rarely even necessary; it makes sense for the student to use a specific skill in a given situation. True understanding always leads to greater success.
