...am tutoring mainly in three subjects: Computer Science (General/AP/IB), Spanish (General/AP/IB), and IB English Language/Literature. My favorite one to teach is Computer Science, as it tends to be the easiest one to teach, and has many practical applications outside of a learning environment. Many of my lessons will involve breaking concepts down to their core mechanics, teaching the subject from a ground-up perspective, and incorporating examples and exercises for the student to use. The lessons...

...help them succeed at every step along the way. Since then I have gained experience in tutoring a large variety of subjects, including programing, physics, calculus, the SAT, the MCAT, etc. I am good at explaining and breaking things down in multiple ways -- words, diagrams, analogies -- to make concepts clear. There are very few things I cannot explain or articulate. Currently my favorite subjects to tutor include computer programming, mathematics, statistics, and physics.
...have worked as Software Engineer in various companies. I tutored a broad range of subjects during high school such as Math, Physics and Chemistry, I am most passionate about Math, Calculus, and Geometry. In my experience helping struggling students prepare for Math and Physics, I try to explain difficult definitions and solutions in an understandable easy way. I don't generally give direct solution, rather motivate students by giving clues and make them find a way...

When you start working with me, I begin by ascertaining exactly what you need to get from your tutoring - what brings you to Varsity Tutors - and then we make a detailed plan to get you to your goal. Along the way, we can identify stretch goals for you. What would it be like it math were no longer a problem for you, and instead you were excellent at it? What if,...
...for creative problem solving pioneered by the international design firm IDEO. While typically used in startups to develop new innovations, I've found it extremely handy in tutoring. Every student is different and so are their difficulties, so a finite set of ways to present a concept or tackle a difficulty is potentially limiting. In my experience, it's much more effective to use an adaptive framework like design thinking to identify the root of students' issues...

We had a crammed session tonight: The student had 2 math assignments and 2 spelling assignments. We spent the entire time focusing on math (because of priority and difficulty). We clipped her completed homework to her planner.
I saw 3 completed assignments and signed the check-boxes in her planner. She had one more assignment that night, so once we see it complete we can giver her the 4th "check" and signature.
The student worked on word math problems. He also worked on greater than and less than problems. He also read a story. He worked on predictions and setting. He also did some cloze procedures for comprehension. I have seen a great improvement in his decoding skills. He is strong in math and works better if given a challenge.
I advised the student on her homework. We covered topics such as geometric sequences and formulas for solving them, such as the recursive and explicit formulas. We addressed word problems that used real-life examples as an application for these sequences, and the steps to solving such problems.
The student was a bit shy, but I think we still had a productive session. We went over all the different kind of verbal questions. We need to work on the reading comprehension. She can get most of the questions correct, but needs to work on her pacing and timing. She needs to go faster to get to more questions. I gave her some sections to work on in her spare time and told her to stick to the time limit. She should be better as she gets more comfortable with the format of the test.
We completed a practice test over the first couple of sections of the course. We then completed previous homework assignments to improve the students grade (radicals). We reviewed briefly over any material the student had questions on. The student has a comprehensive final on Monday (Last Session).
We reviewed most of the problems the student got wrong in the mathematics achievement portion of the test, focusing on the following: 1.) How to get the slope of a line, based on 2 coordinates, or on having the slope and 1 set of coordinates. We also reviewed the definition of slope, and how to determine, if given visual examples, which slope is increasing or decreasing at the highest rate. 2.) How to use the multiple choice answers given to solve a complicated problem, since that may be the simplest way of solving it. 3.) How to determine the area of a shaded region, such as the area outside of a circle inscribed within a square.
