# Award-Winning Trigonometry Tutors in Fitchburg, WI

Joseph ...I helped many students through their science courses. I was recently a Microbiology Professor in Portland and really enjoyed the student-teacher interaction. I am looking to continue this through tutoring students in the Phoenix area. Some of my favorite subjects to teach are science, math and writing I am easily able to pull items from my experiences to relate the material to the student and help assist in the learning process. I have a diverse...

Will ...writing backgrounds in all stages of the writing process. I believe that dialogue and interaction are the most effective ways to teach and learn, both through implicit and explicit methods. I tutor so that students will understand why and how a concept functions, and then be able to organize it and analyze its different parts. My strongpoints as a tutor are in writing, but I also have a strong math background and love teaching all...

Debo I have extensive tutoring experience in math, physics, chemistry and engineering subjects. I really enjoy tutoring and like the interaction with students. ... Teaching is a way to share knowledge and improve your own learning.... By helping them understand the core concepts. Focus on understanding the problem itself rather than the solution.... By praising them on their successes, pointing out places for improvement and making learning a fun process.... I will try to illustrate the skill or concept with different examples that the student can relate to.

William ...PhD Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin. I have twenty-five years experience in the the teaching and tutoring of all levels of Mathematics. I believe the Socratic Method is a form of inquiry and discussion between individuals, based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to illuminate ideas. Chess is excellent for improving logic and critical analysis skills. The game of World of Warcraft is excellent for improving organizational and attention-to-detail skills....

Joel ...mostly in mathematics, but I also helped with middle school science and English as well as ACT preparation. I look forward to tutoring 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,...

Sid ...a variety of scientific and mathematical phenomena using my aptitude for understanding different perspectives. Many people who know me think I should be a diplomat. I hope this will serve students well as I become more heavily vested in the world of tutoring than before. I like to focus on math because it's something that I always had trouble with, as most people. For every math class starting from Pre-algebra through Calculus 3 and beyond,...

Cole ...UW as well. Education has always been important to me, and tutoring allows me to share that passion with others. I first got into tutoring through a volunteer program in high school, and I continued to tutor during my undergraduate studies, which was some of the most rewarding work I’ve ever done. My engineering background has allowed me to take a wide variety of math and science courses, including Caclulus, Physics, and Chemistry, a few...

Michael ...at a liberal arts school, worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and did two years of work on a masters at University of New Mexico. I have taught lab courses in introductory physics and tutored college and high school students in physics and math. I am interested in making physics and math relatable to people who are not naturally adept at it. I have taken the SAT, the general GRE and the physics GRE subject...

Zach ...on my ACT. In my free time I play basketball, listen to music, write programs, and watch movies with my friends. I specialize in math and science of all kinds, I really love teaching biology, chemistry, and physics. I also can prepare students for the ACT. As a sophomore I have already taken physics, calculus, biology, intro chemistry, and organic chemistry. I believe I am able to break down very complex ideas to make any...

Aaron I connect with people best through sharing ideas. The majority of my spare time is spent trying to simplify or find alternate proofs of basic theorems to make them more intuitive.... Focusing on beauty solves many problems a teacher faces. If I am attending a lecture about The Great Gatsby, I will be eager if the speaker tells of the beauty she sees, rather than a quick and dirty type of analysis. I regularly talk to people who admit math wasn't their favorite subject in school. Some were self-conscious. Some had gaps they never filled. Some just didn't care. Whatever the case, I admit to them that math is my favorite art form with as much room for expression as sculpting or jazz. I claim that mathematicians are half artists, half observers of fine art. My conversants often tell me it is an epiphany for them to think of math as such, and that it helps heal their math wound. A marvelous way I have found to unveil beauty in the classroom is by using surprise. I like to present ideas from a simple perspective, discuss them briefly, then release a theorem. Thales' theorem (the diameter of a circle subtends a right angle to any point on the circumference) is a great example, especially with the aid of Java applets. After playing a bit with triangles by moving points around in a worksheet, it's surprising to be able to connect two structures as basic as a right triangle and a diameter. Next in importance to marveling at beauty, I want students to learn to think critically to solve problems. Understandably, some students have never had guidance past high school drills. All the more, problem solving should be emphasized and revisited throughout college curriculum. I have many years of experience in problem solving competitions and a collection of principles regarding problem solving that I like to follow. One is about inverse problems. Consider the following: if baseball cards are five cents apiece and shipping costs fifty cents, how many cards will one dollar buy? After making the arithmetic clear, students had better know how to calculate the forward problem, i.e. "How much will x number of cards cost?" I'm depending on them knowing the forward problem because we covered it last week, but it is important to bring it out in more than just a mention so the students have a comfortable base to start. It's like revisiting rational numbers before diving into irrationals. They are intrinsically tied, and it gives the class confidence to start with old material.
