...extensive experience in the classroom as a Jumpstart Corps Member taught me to adapt my teaching style to each childs needs. While some learned better through mnemonics and letter-to-word associations, others preferred to process information and teach content back to me themselves. The greatest lesson I've learned as a tutor is to first step back and let a student tell me their goals, show me how they take in information, and point me in the...

I've spent lots of time in academia, either as a student, teacher, or staffer, and would love to help you achieve your goals through tutoring. In each meeting with students, my goal is to try to undercover and describe the general ideas lurking underneath test questions. Once students learn to recognize these ideas and understand them, it's like a key that undoes the lock for future test questions, no matter how trickily they're written.

My emphasis as a teacher is the learning of the process rather than simply the product. Ensuring that the students have a deep understanding of the content will allow them to succeed more than simply teaching them a trick for getting the correct answer. Setting your expectations high will result in students reaching higher than they could have before.

Hello everyone! I love to learn and I love to help others learn. I'm a BS in Physics and I'm confident I can help with any math or physics.... When solving math and physics problems the best place to start is with the fundamentals. Sometimes I have to start with, "So what happens when you let go of your pencil?" Or, "When I divide by ten on this side what do I have to do to the other side?" Oftentimes, students just need someone to help them think about a problem in a methodical way.

I'm a retired professor who taught statistics for many years. To be a good citizen these days, you have to know a little statistics, because many people will try to convince you of many things with statistics, and you need to be able to separate the truth from the lies.... I want you to understand how statistics works and what the logic behind it is. If you understand that, then it will be easy to learn new things because they will probably follow the logic of something you already know. You don't have to be good at math to learn statistics, but you do have to be able to think logically. If you just learn how to plug numbers into formulas, then you don't really know statistics.
