...I was recently a Microbiology Professor in Portland and really enjoyed the student-teacher interaction. I am looking to continue this through tutoring students in the Phoenix area. Some of my favorite subjects to teach are science, math and writing I am easily able to pull items from my experiences to relate the material to the student and help assist in the learning process. I have a diverse background working as a stem cell researcher, QC...

I have a lot of experience teaching & tutoring and have completed a wide variety of standardized test with excellent scores.... Start by trying to achieve a broad understanding and refining it as needed.... Introduce myself, meet the student, and identify areas of strength and weakness.... Short breaks, fun problems.... Ask leading questions until the student understands, and then try to build a deeper understanding.... Try to make the passage seem more approachable or put it in simpler terms.

...classes in the philosophy department at UW-Madison. Teaching is the most important part of my life, and my role as an educator is what most defines my identity. I have no general guiding principle about teaching, other than that it isn't really useful to think in terms of such principles. Rather, I think that it's best to approach each student as having a distinct learning style and set of educational objectives, and thus, as representing...

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.

I hope this will serve students well as I become more heavily vested in the world of tutoring than before. I like to focus on math because it's something that I always had trouble with, as most people. For every math class starting from Pre-algebra through Calculus 3 and beyond, nothing was easy for me.
