Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Geometry tutors in Tucson, AZ
" As a graduate student teaching assistant, I have worked extensively in the classroom. My experience ranges from delivering lectures and helping students understand important scientific concepts to working with students on a one-on-one basis. Many of the students I have worked with are non-science majors and finding a way to explain difficult scientific concepts to individual students is something I find rewarding. I have helped students who were anxious about scientific concepts and mathematics become comfortable with these concepts and I have helped outstanding students to achieve their goals in the classroom." ...

"From tutoring my fellow classmates in AP Calculus 1 and 2 and intermediate Spanish, I was able to engage in a higher level of academic tutoring and develop more direct methods to explain concepts. I feel that the knowledge, encouragement and patience that I enjoy offering to the most frustrated student really makes the difference. It is my optimistic attitude and driven spirit, combined with my strong knowledge and familiarity with core subjects, that makes me an effective tutor. Aside from my subject experience, I have a strong passion for helping others." ...

"My son and daughter are now both in college. I have taught high school middle school in the past. Many students came to me outside of the classroom for help in math and science. In my free time I enjoy making quilts, birdwatching, and genealogy. I love traveling everywhere (local or abroad). ."

" I am patient and try to use different avenues to help students understand the material set before them. Whether doing a problem alongside, drawing a picture, or coming up with an everyday example to aid in understanding, my flexibility is a great asset. I also tutored my high schoolers in their math assignments on at least a weekly basis when they would need help with their homework.."

"And ideally, students will have fun in the process! In terms of experience, I currently teach Spanish courses at the University of Arizona, and I have worked as a math tutor in public middle and high schools and a math and composition tutor for the University of Arizona, where I became a certified Advanced Tutor by the College Reading and Learning Association. I have also worked with students of Spanish as a foreign language and students of Spanish as a heritage language, helping to improve not only the four main linguistic abilities, but also cultural and metalinguistic knowledge, all while increasing confidence. My work as a mentor and ...

"I have taught high school students in the Leadership Education and Development Program (LEAD) for two years which teaches a select group of students about business and entrepreneurship. As credit analyst manager for a community bank I trained and developed the analysts in my department which is very much like an ongoing tutoring process. I teach martial arts (karate) to students of all ages and skill levels, from children to adults.."

"I solve complex problems by breaking them down into small steps which is how I teach my students to solve problems. If I can help a student get a few steps into the problem, they usually began to see the correct direction and are able to find the path to the answer. Challenging my students to think for themselves, asking intentional questions and offering helpful advice and encouragement are what make me a great tutor.-."

"I taught students who started at 25 on the ACT and ended up at 34, but at least as satisfying were those students who started at 14 and eventually achieved 19. More important than such external measurements, however, is the individual student's knowledge that he or she has come into possession of, and internalized, a set of tools useful for further learning. I've edited five books for Duke University Press, and I have also taught college. My students find me friendly and approachable, and I love teaching. My undergraduate degree is in classics (Harvard), for which I wrote an honors thesis on the Odyssey of Homer." ...

"As I worked with him throughout the semester, I was able to raise his grade from an "F" to a "B" by the end of the semester. During that time, I really focused on making sure my student understood the basics and fundamental processes before slowly moving onto more challenging processes so that each step could build off each other. This is how I learned best in school and I believe it is a great way to teach students to help them understand the concepts much more clearly. When I'm not tutoring, I have a variety of interests and hobbies, such as sports, running, food, and travel. Currently, I also work as a scribe for physicians ...

" Many people tend to react to this with a face of "ewww," but I love figuring out the patterns and results that tell the story from the numbers. I have taught a variety of subjects and grades, including 7th-grade Math, which I consider to be my hardest gig yet. Like most people who teach and/or tutor, I enjoy the moment when the struggling student 'gets it.' I especially like showing students that most Math problems are a series of simpler problems which they most likely already know how to do. Since I am a full-time graduate student, I don't have much free time, but when I do, I enjoy rollerblading, cooking and watching a good movie with friends." ...
