Steven

Hello, I am Steven Jordan. I am currently finishing my degree as a Business major at Chapman University. I have always enjoyed helping others with math because it was the subject that I excelled at the most and I am happy when I see others benefit from my help. From 4th grade through my senior year in high school, I was enrolled in honors math programs. In middle school, I was on the decathlon team and achieved second place in my individual subject. The subjects that I am best fit to help others with include: pre-algebra, algebra 1 & 2, geometry, pre-calculus, and ACT math. I have tutored several individuals in these subjects and have been told that my service has greatly improved their grades. I like to take a calm approach and utilize the person's strengths and learning abilities to derive a teaching method that will suit each individual. I also use simple tricks and memorizing techniques that the teachers may not use to help remember how to solve the problem. I am very happy when the person I am helping performs well and will do my best to make sure that the best grade possible is attained. I will work hard and do my best to help those who need my help.

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to adapt to each student and utilize different methods in order to benefit that particular student. I believe that listening to the needs of the student is crucial and understanding their strengths and weaknesses in a subject will allow me to develop a particular strategy to best suit them.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would first listen to the parents or guardian to understand the situation and what they would like to see out of the tutoring sessions. I would then like to speak with the student to see how confident they are in the subject. Also, I would ask what they have difficulty understanding and any other concerns. Next, I may test their knowledge of the subject with a practice test in order to see how they derive an answer and what we need to work on. Lastly, I would teach using several different methods or problem solving techniques in order to understand how they learn best.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I could help a student become an independent learner through positive reinforcement and by introducing different learning tools and strategies. I believe that tutoring a student requires both patience and motivation. Instilling confidence in the student and providing them with helpful tools on the web or in texts gives them more success.
