Award-Winning Pre-Calculus Tutors in Kansas City, MO
Erin ...Learning is so much more fun if it is relevant to things we already love. I also try to create hands-on experiences that we can hold, move, and arrange as we talk about math: we have to get up off the worksheet. Making Kool-aid is a much more understandable (and delicious) way to learn about ratios than just doing practice problems out of a book. If I am relating math to my own interests, I...

Nicolas I hope to be able to use my academic and past tutoring experience to help students improve their performance. I believe in focusing on the process for the work instead of the specific answers to problems.... I believe that it is important to both answer any questions a student has and help them understand how to do the work so they will do well on their own.... I will talk with them about their goals, work with them through a few problems to see their strengths and weaknesses, and introduce some ways for them to start improving on their weaknesses.

Tony Make every effort to make yourself improved, a student need not be ashamed!... Keep it simple student!... I will do an interview. I will attempt to understand how the student is thinking -- in detail or short and sweet!... Don't be lazy! A student is one who studies. If you can eat, drink, and breath daily, then why can't you study daily. Apply yourself.... Take a break from studying. Sunday through Thursday study, and Friday and Saturday take a break! Make studying a challenge -- and accept the challenge.

While tutoring I try to help students master the fundamentals so...
