...specialize in math, which is a subject that both challenges and excites. Math applies to everything and it's only stipulation is basic and irrefutable logic. Learning math occurs through a combination of instruction and participation. Instruction gives you direction and allows you to make the most out of your time spent studying, but ultimately it is participation in examples and critical thinking that will allow you to really master something. I love mathematical subject matter...

Certified Physics Tutor in Fitchburg, WI

I am an applied mathematician, specializing in probability. I used to teach at the university level, but moved into industry. After being away from teaching for some time I found that I still want to play a part-time role in education. It was my experience that one on one teaching in office hours brought the most benefit to students, so tutoring is the best way for me to take part in education.... It is a best to transmit knowledge and skills in a way tailored to each student's unique mindset. This fact makes classroom teaching very difficult, so for many students one-on-one tutoring is an optimal method to learn.

...at my college's Office of Academic Services, primarily working with students in math and science. I enjoy being a resource to help students struggling in math and science, as these subjects can be difficult to understand. I employ a variety of strategies including mnemonic devices, physical manipulatives, and drawings/diagrams to accommodate different learning styles. Typically, I have the students attempt to solve a problem and then ask leading questions whenever he/she gets stuck. If the...

I have extensive tutoring experience in math, physics, chemistry and engineering subjects. I really enjoy tutoring and like the interaction with students. ... Teaching is a way to share knowledge and improve your own learning.... By helping them understand the core concepts. Focus on understanding the problem itself rather than the solution.... By praising them on their successes, pointing out places for improvement and making learning a fun process.... I will try to illustrate the skill or concept with different examples that the student can relate to.

Certified Physics Tutor in Fitchburg, WI

I've worked with kids from several angles as camp counselor, tutor, nanny, substitute teacher and more. All my experience has taught me how to effectively communicate with students, whether they're struggling or just looking for an extra edge. I've studied myself enough to know what I'm talking about and I have the skills and well-tested patience to convey what I know to kids. ... Even with a skilled teacher in the classroom, a student may have trouble succeeding. That's what tutors are for! One-on-one work helps to zero in on exactly how to best help a student. Just a little bit of personalized attention can make all the difference!

For every math class starting from Pre-algebra through Calculus 3 and beyond, nothing was easy for me. But, I found out other people have just as much or more trouble with math than even I did and that's when I decided that if I got through...

I connect with people best through sharing ideas. The majority of my spare time is spent trying to simplify or find alternate proofs of basic theorems to make them more intuitive.... Focusing on beauty solves many problems a teacher faces. If I am attending a lecture about The Great Gatsby, I will be eager if the speaker tells of the beauty she sees, rather than a quick and dirty type of analysis. I regularly talk to people who admit math wasn't their favorite subject in school. Some were self-conscious. Some had gaps they never filled. Some just didn't care. Whatever the case, I admit to them that math is my favorite art form with as much room for expression as sculpting or jazz. I claim that mathematicians are half artists, half observers of fine art. My conversants often tell me it is an epiphany for them to think of math as such, and that it helps heal their math wound. A marvelous way I have found to unveil beauty in the classroom is by using surprise. I like to present ideas from a simple perspective, discuss them briefly, then release a theorem. Thales' theorem (the diameter of a circle subtends a right angle to any point on the circumference) is a great example, especially with the aid of Java applets. After playing a bit with triangles by moving points around in a worksheet, it's surprising to be able to connect two structures as basic as a right triangle and a diameter. Next in importance to marveling at beauty, I want students to learn to think critically to solve problems. Understandably, some students have never had guidance past high school drills. All the more, problem solving should be emphasized and revisited throughout college curriculum. I have many years of experience in problem solving competitions and a collection of principles regarding problem solving that I like to follow. One is about inverse problems. Consider the following: if baseball cards are five cents apiece and shipping costs fifty cents, how many cards will one dollar buy? After making the arithmetic clear, students had better know how to calculate the forward problem, i.e. "How much will x number of cards cost?" I'm depending on them knowing the forward problem because we covered it last week, but it is important to bring it out in more than just a mention so the students have a comfortable base to start. It's like revisiting rational numbers before diving into irrationals. They are intrinsically tied, and it gives the class confidence to start with old material.
