"After tutoring him for three years, whenever I return to Northern California, I visit the family to see how they are doing. I enjoy connecting with the clients on a personal level and maintaining a friendly environment.

"Growing up my dad, an Electrical Engineer, used to do math with me for fun. It became ingrained in me and I thoroughly enjoy all levels of math.

I have experience with tutoring my peers in high school as a TA as well."

" Through all of my experiences, I have learned the three keys to success are to understand how the students learns (kinesthetic, visual, auditory), make the information relevant to their lives allowing for personal connection to the material, and support the student through answering follow-up questions. I am the type of tutor that has patience, understanding, and a good sense of humor to the point that I want the student to enjoy learning the material more than it just being bearable. I promise that I will always try my hardest, be flexible, and change my approach to teaching to teach to the learner to ensure success! ." ...

" Starting in high school to the present I’ve had the opportunity to help students in many subjects, and we’ve succeeded in mastering the material because we first focused on how we approached the subject; our approach will be based on your learning style. Once we’ve established a foundation based on my understanding of your learning style and your understanding of the subject matter, we can start asking the ‘whys’ and that’s when the fun begins. I look forward to working with you.."

"I began tutoring in my junior year of high school, mainly in chemistry and math, and continued through college with friends and classmates. My tutoring style generally revolves around developing core problem solving abilities, while trying to relate the concepts to something familiar. This is followed by having the student "teach" me what we have covered, helping to cement the ideas. A little about my personal life; my hobbies include swimming, football, soccer, camping, surfing, gardening, and pretty much everything outdoors."

" I enjoy building up their confidence in the subject matter, and then watching them be able to use their knowledge to solve problems on their own. It's very important to me to establish a good rapport with my students, as that builds trust and confidence, as well as make the tutoring session more fun. I really enjoy tutoring/teaching Math and ESL. Especially with lower levels of math, I try to use games and "real world" situations to make the concepts entertaining and applicable to the student."
