Certified Math Tutor in Pleasanton, CA

I am currently a senior at Santa Clara University, double majoring in Computer Science and Math, with a Spanish minor. I love math and CS, whether it be problem-solving, programming, algorithms, you name it, and I love teaching, so I look forward to helping you out!... Some students need to be retaught for certain material if they did not understand it in class. I will gladly reteach any unclear concepts, but to ensure that a student has reached an understanding, I ask that the student explain a concept to me if they claim to understand. Another method I like to use is examples; I find that giving the student an additional similar example to do and asking them to work out the answer on their own sufficiently proves that he or she understands the material.

Certified Math Tutor in Pleasanton, CA

Growing up I was always into math and science. I loved watching shows like Star Trek and learning about space travel and all the cool futuristic technologies they had to treat patients. This helped guide me into the field of Physics and Biomedical Engineering. I want to share this love of math and science to students wants to learn more or just needs a little help along the way.... I learned from my Bioengineering teacher in graduate school that students will only want to learn from teachers who are enthusiastic about teaching. If you show that you are willing to take the extra time to teach the students a hard subject, the students are usually more willing learn.
