Certified Pre-Algebra Tutor in Santa Ana, CA

...I tutor people, no matter what the subject, I keep my utmost focus on patience and encouragement. Even if I find the subject easy, I can harken back to long nights trying to understand complex topics at Caltech which my tutors found easy, and gain inspiration from their patience and encouragement. These experiences fostered in me a love of learning and passing my knowledge onto others. I hope you feel inclined to take advantage of...

Certified Pre-Algebra Tutor in Santa Ana, CA

...math tutor helping students with their homework, preparing for exams, and/or grasping the subject matter. My favorite subjects are trigonometry, geometry and calculus. I enjoy leading students rather than supplying the answers, to stimulate problem solving methods and promote independent thought. I really enjoy helping students reach that "ahh" moment where they get a handle on a difficult topic. I enjoy reading, old movies, riding my road bicycle, and working on cars.... A good teacher doesn't show you what to look at but what to look for. I try to engage the analytic problem solving abilities of my students. Instead of a student looking at a problem as contrived and generic with a rigid set of procedures they need to follow, i.e. plug and chug, I get them to think deeply about what is given, what is desired and how to be able to explain it to anyone.

...students since the sixth grade, when I would help third graders with problem areas in their studies. Since then I've always had a real drive to help struggling students not only learn mathematics but also realize that they're more than capable students.

...teaching, I spent 3 years tutoring at a university where I earned my BS in Biomedical Engineering. I switched from a career in engineering to one in education because I just love working with kids, teenagers, and young adults. For me, coaching a teenager to improve his jumpshot beats educating a client about a new product; and helping students prepare for the SAT trumps preparing for a design-team meeting. Having taken a year away from...

Go forward with confidence.... Inspire the student to be determined to understand.... Get to know them, and find out how they think they learn best. Discuss a few questions that have been puzzling them.... Explain how we approach each question. Why do we do it this way? How does it benefit us?... Encouragement. Celebrate every baby step. They add up to leaps.... Continue to find different approaches to teaching the material.... Counsel the student without judgement. Try to understand the specific problem. Incorporate, where possible, ways to improve it in our studies. If that is not adequate, I would recommend they seek other sources of help.
