Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Pre-Calculus tutors in Tucson, AZ
"I received a BS in Astrophysics at New Mexico Tech (2001) and worked at the National Solar Observatory in Tucson for several years before pursuing graduate studies. 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 tutored math (algebra-calc3) along with general chemistry at Cochise college for a year, and then worked at Pima Community College West Campus tutoring the same subjects. While at Pima, I received my Level-1 tutor certification through CRLA. Besides formal tutoring, I've been helping people in my life with math since I was a little girl. I have a great passion in the subject and on top of that I absolutely love tutoring."

" I believe the most effective way to check for understanding is to ask questions which is why my classes were filled with questions. 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.-." ...

" Having taken several standardized tests throughout the years, including the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, and a variety of different courses as an Economics major, pre-medicine student, I feel I can help in many different subject areas. I've served in a variety of tutoring roles over the years, but the one I am most proud of was when I helped a 9th grader in algebra a few years ago. 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 ...

" 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." ...

"My job is to teach Physics through demonstrations involving pendulums, liquid nitrogen, lasers, etc. In high school, I volunteered for three years as a tutor as part of an after-school tutoring service provided by students, for students. I tutored a variety of academic subjects, including English and History. I also developed extensive experience in test prep for the PSAT, SAT and the AP exams. As a tutor, I constantly try different hooks that might pique the interest of the student."

" During these past years at the University of Arizona, I have held quite a few positions that have allowed me to help students academically. I have worked as an ACT preparation instructor for the Tucson GEAR Up Project, which is a college readiness program for high school students in the Tucson community. As an ACT prep instructor, I helped high school students prepare for the ACT college entrance exam by leading workshops in order to provide them with strategies and practice to succeed on the test. In addition, I have been an undergraduate preceptor for General Chemistry at the University of Arizona. As a preceptor, I helped students ...

"I am an excellent tutor because I care about what and how the student knows what they know. It is one thing to have the right answer but it is altogether something else for them to know why they know the answer. I am aware of the various students learning levels and their learning style which will only improve my ability to tutor. I have found I truly love to help to succeed in any way that I can. I truly believe that anyone can understand math and science."
