...best when the student is motivated, and I have two main approaches to motivating my students. First, context- a topic isn't interesting or important 'just because', we have to discover how it's related to our whole world and especially to things the student already knows they care about. Second, getting to know the student- everyone has unique talents, tendencies, and goals. There is an area of overlap between each school subject (even standardized tests, which...

Certified Pre-Calculus Tutor in Portsmouth, VA

I enjoy tutoring more than any other work I've had, because students come to me with a great desire to do better academically. All teachers need to remember that nobody wants to be left behind in their education. My primary goal is to help students find confidence in private, so they can be more confident in public.... I help students find their own way to make sense of Math, and then I show them how to learn through failure, so they will eventually succeed.

I graduated from University of California Davis with a BS in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior. I am currently attending medical school in Virginia. I enjoy tutoring and have been doing it in an official capacity for approximately 2 years. ... It is important not only to teach information to student, but to teach them the tools to problem solve and learn on their own.... In a first session it is important to discuss the subject and information a student wants to cover. It is also important to set expectations for me as the tutor (what the student expects from me) and expectations for the learning (I usually expect that a student try to study the material prior to the session and formulate at least a few questions for the session).

That is more reason why I should tutor others. I have a deeper understanding why students struggle in their subjects. I know where the roadblocks are and how to overcome them. I no longer have trouble hearing ever since I undergone ear surgery and changed my life...
