...Mechanical Engineering and International Relations. After graduation I joined Teach For America and am currently a high school math teacher, teaching Algebra and Geometry to freshmen and sophomores. Math is definitely my favorite subject and I love helping my students understand, appreciate, and love math. I began tutoring during college, where I helped students with everything from Calculus to Statistics to Engineering. In my free time, I love to bake and enjoy a good book.

...and science have always been my favorite subjects to study and teach, because they are built on evidence and proof. My teaching philosophy is based on this- that if you know how something works, rather than just that it works, you will remember it better and be much more confident applying it. Additionally, I understand from experience that individual students learn in different ways, and that adapting my teaching style to each student is necessary....

Most skills can be applied to a variety of situations - this is hard to see in a test-taking situation, but I try to bring it to light (especially for students who may not believe math is necessary to succeed). As previously noted, outside of schoolwork, I am very passionate about composing and recording music, especially...

Certified Calculus Tutor in Santa Clara, CA

I am currently a sophomore at Stanford University studying bio-engineering along with pre-med. I have tutored in the past and love seeing the students I tutor progress. I also coach gymnastics, so I greatly enjoy working with people and teaching them skills in general. I specialize in ACT and high school math tutoring because I remember the importance of the subjects and would like to help other students be as successful as possible. ... I believe that the most important part of teaching students is teaching them how to learn and the importance of the learning. So, in math, I will focus on effective problem solving. In reading, I'll focus on passages. And in all subjects, I'll concentrate on how important it is to put in as much effort as possible. In other words, I will try to highlight not only how important it is to try but also how enjoyable it is to learn challenging material.

Seemingly daunting word problems can be broken down into manageable bits and solved very easily. I believe having this ability to dissect a problem into smaller portions is important not just for academics but for everyday tasks as well, and it is a useful skill for everyone to possess....
