Award-Winning Trigonometry Tutors in Prairie Village, KS
Christopher ...has different perspectives, and when you are teaching you have to be able to both provide a new perspective and to understand (so as to enlarge) someone else's perspective. In my non-teaching time, I am interested in Physics and Mathematics and working out practical problems from plumbing to electronics. I will someday go back for my Ph.D. in Physics but until then I am looking to grow as an engineer or computer programmer.... Socratic. I know too much, so if I start in a random location there's a 90% chance that it will not apply to any given student -- instead I need to ask them "hey, where are you?" and "why do you think that ?" until we drill down to something concrete where I can help them understand what's going on.

Eli I have over eight years experience tutoring, mostly in math and science, but other subjects as well. I attempt to find analogous concepts from a student's other interests or daily experiences to make abstract concepts more understandable. I believe that generally, grasping a concept follows on from realizing it's not so foreign as we used to think.

Art ...of Algebra 1, Geometry, and Biology. In college, I was also involved in tutoring, working with students in a range of subjects from College Algebra to Calculus in math, and all sorts of science courses, including Genetics, Physics, and Molecular Cell Biology. I tutor a wide range of math and science classes, but my favorites are Algebra, Genetics, and Physics. When working with a student, I have found that showing the student that you are...
Chad ...My favorite subject to tutor is physics because I feel like learning to apply a few fundamental principles to different real world situations is extremely useful in any discipline. While tutoring I try to help students master the fundamentals so they can apply them to the material we're working on as well as future material. Outside academia, I help look after my four siblings and play more League of Legends online than is perhaps healthy.

Hannah ...me. My job is to simply watch the student work and if needed, lead them to the right answer. Ultimately, my goal is to help them see the bigger picture. I want every student to not only see the "how" of mathematics but the "why", as well. Outside of school and math, I love to be outside, spending time with my family, and listening to music. I am a huge movie buff, as well. Above...
