I graduated from Moravian College in May 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in Science. While at college I majored in Mathematics as it was always a subject I found equally intriguing and complex as it is rewarding. Something about solving a challenging problem seems to give you that feeling of self satisfaction and accomplishment and that is what I want my students to be able to feel as well.
To me mathematics has always been so much more than just simply figuring out what a 20% tip would be on your dinner bill. I view mathematics as another way of perceiving the world. It is a subject based solely on its purity in problem solving and logic, but yet it has the ability to be evaluated through different perceptions. This is also why, when it comes to tutoring mathematics, I typically work with a student to see how they perceive a problem. To me this is way more important than simply instructing the student in the one way a tutor might know how to go about solving a problem. By taking into account the student's capabilities and understanding of a problem, I can better cater to their strengths and work with those to find a way to analyze and undertake a problem.
While tutoring at college,I had a lot of success with this strategy. I was able to utilize many real world examples to help them get a better grasp of the material and even instill the knowledge and confidence. They knew the material when it came time for the quiz, and weren't so dependent on my presence and helpful hints.
In addition to mathematics, I am also very passionate about exercising. I love to play and watch football and hockey, lift weights, run, and oddly enough landscape.
I can assure you that I am very good at tutoring and I will always come prepared with a rehearsed knowledge of the subject being tutored and a well-mannered and friendly attitude! Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and hope you will contact me in regards to an opportunity!
