### Award-Winning Pre-Calculus Tutors in Westminster, CO

Zhenyuan Being able to help others to understand a subject always makes me proud. During my study in college, I have worked as a math tutor for two years. It was one of the greatest work experiences I have ever had. Working as a tutor not only helped others to understand better, but also improved my teaching skills and strengthened my understanding of a subject. ... Each person has different learning styles. Personalizing teaching styles can maximize the student's learning efficiency and quality. Thus, it is important to build a strong relationship with the student because it is the best way to understand the student's interests, learning strength, and weaknesses.

Steven I'm creative, patient, and very enthusiastic about math and helping others love it like I do. I love online tutoring because it allows more flexibility and creativity. I enjoy helping students understand complicated math concepts with plain language and creating more math lovers! :)... Educators at the secondary and post-secondary levels face a very common and very real challenge of developing tunnel-vision with their instruction. Whether this is due to the speed-based system of education in which they may be working, where a certain amount of material must be covered in a set time-frame, or teaching multiple courses of the same material, or that the teacher may feel most comfortable explaining a concept only in the way they themselves learned it, education itself, for the instructor, can present a very formidable foe. I myself have had times throughout my twenty years in education where I couldn't see the educational forest for the trees. I found myself so engrossed in making sure I covered the material, and in the day-to-day teacher operations, that I lost sight of my overall goal of how I wanted my instruction to be experienced by the students. Interestingly, it was during my time tutoring students that I found my way, because tutoring allowed me to talk with a student rather than providing instruction to them. No student wants to think of education as an endless practice of taking notes and memorization of material. They want their education to be both enjoyable and fulfilling. An instructor can help accomplish this by making their instruction an experience rather than an exercise. Whether an educator is teaching philosophy or mathematics, students learn when they not only see how to do something, but more importantly, why. From this point, the educator has succeeded, because students who understand material at this level will be able to apply the critical thinking they've been given to decide "when." They will comprehend the connections not only between sections in one class, but also how each class is connected overall within their educational experience. In summation, I believe that education is meant to be a collection of experiences rather than sectioned into parts to be robotically learned. This approach allows all students to see their forests in spite of the trees.

Kari ...have always been two of my favorite subjects (and yes, math can be fun), and I am excited to get back to teaching in these areas. I think everyone has a unique learning style, so I like to get to know each student to determine how to work with and build upon his or her strengths. I have worked with all ages and backgrounds and, at the end of the day, find that the best...

Daniel ...UCSB. Teaching and studying the ocean are my two favorite academic pastimes (sports being my other favorite activity). I strive to make every session ACTUALLY enjoyable. Sitting in class all day is draining, so my sessions are different in that they are fun and engaging. You can't learn if you're bored or uninterested. I work hard to make even factoring a polynomial fun! I have loads of experience in Math, a degree in Physics, and...

Jimmy ...of subjects and student backgrounds. As a volunteer, I've tutored elementary school students from disadvantaged backgrounds, helping them catch up to grade level in reading. More recently, I tutored Chemistry to adult learners progressing towards nursing certifications. I am a lifelong science and math enthusiast, and they are my favorite subjects to teach. My approach as a tutor is to set clearly defined goals for learning and to accomplish them, while making it as enjoyable...

Steven ...the student and I work through problems to bolster weak points while maintaining strengths. In the beginning I like to work similar problems to the student’s homework to show methods of solving. Next the student and I will work through a problem together. Lastly, I have the student solve a new problem and explain to me their methods, so that the student may demonstrate understanding of the material. Most recently I was the lead mathematics...

Evan ...of experience in physics graduate level courses at the University of Kentucky. I've been working as a teacher, in various forms, over the past four years, and nothing has been more meaningful or exciting for me than working with students - not only in helping them learn the material, but also in seeing them grow as independent learners. In my undergraduate career at Centre College, I worked for several years as a chemistry lab assistant,...

Bryan ...the end of May. I have had 4 years experience tutoring all across the undergraduate mathematics curriculum, with students in groups, and one-on-one. I've also served as a teaching assistant for 3 years, carrying out many different classroom duties for professors including grading homework, holding office hours, proctoring exams. I've grown very fond of tutoring calculus 1, 2, sophomore level linear algebra, and differential equations. The "true power" of applied mathematics shines brightest in these...
