...ensure that the student truly learns the material and is able to problem solve on their own. There is always more than one way to explain a problem, so if the student does not understand in one way, I make sure to implement other methods to teach them so that they can understand to the best of their ability. There is no stupid question except the one that is not asked. I obtained my Bachelor...

...experience in theoretical mathematics classes. So if a student asks me why a certain thing is true in math (such as why the product of two negatives yields a positive, why differentiability implies continuity, etc.), I will be able to give a good, concrete reason. Having experience in other areas such as cryptography, programming, and statistics, I can also give plenty of good explanations as to why learning mathematics can be fun and important for...

Certified Pre-Algebra Tutor in Chester County, PA

Bilingual veteran with strong background in chemical engineering, atmospheric science and emergency medical care.... My teaching philosophy is based on the belief that teaching should be student-centered, and whatever decision of the teacher should be made with consideration of students' academic as well as socio-emotional needs. A good teacher should be able to recognize the similarities and differences among students, and should design learning tasks and adopt instructional strategies in accordance with students' background and differential needs. A good teacher should: 1. Provide an environment conducive to learning. In an atmosphere of mutual trust, students begin to share their ideas, and learning is enhanced. 2. Encourage the potential in students. Simple words such as "I know you can grasp this concept!" can motivate students to work harder. Students observe the expectations of success or failure that others have for them. When teachers provide students with challenging yet attainable learning tasks, self-confidence increases as they experience success in learning. 3. Acknowledge students' efforts. Recognition of students' efforts to overcoming a huge hurdle of learning in a "difficult" subject encourages students to be more active in their learning and open to challenging themselves. 4. Be organized and well-prepared. I expect my students to be organized and well-prepared, and I lead by example. 5. Take time to explain concepts. Time spent reinforcing the subject matter, either deriving the formula or theorem or providing more examples for individual or group work, ensures that students establish a solid grounding upon which to build their knowledge.

I have personally worked with students who have been described as unable to function in a classroom, or incapable of meeting high expectations, and I have watched those students grow immensely when given the opportunity. The impact of a caring, positive environment of people who believe in a student cannot...

...the University of Mississippi. While in graduate school, I spent years as a laboratory teaching assistant for various undergraduate chemistry laboratory courses. I have several years of tutoring experience, primarily in undergraduate general chemistry courses. I believe that all students are capable of doing well. It is just a matter of isolating what they do not understand, formulating a plan to reinforce fundamental concepts, and helping them to build confidence by working problems.... I believe that students learn best by working and thinking through problems. I believe this is especially true for chemistry courses. Although everyone does not learn the same way, we must put in the time in order to know what does and does not work. Many students work just enough problems to familiarize themselves with a concept, but stop short of working enough problems to be truly comfortable with the actual chemistry concepts being presented. While I do believe that there is more than one way to learn something, when it comes to math and the physical sciences there is no real replacement to working your way through progressively more involved problems because they force you to think, and the process reinforces what you already know.
