I've been tutoring 7-12th grade for the past two years in Modesto, California. I have also been privately tutoring Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, and Common Core for 2nd grade math. I've taught dozens of students in that time and have hands on experience with the following subjects.
Math - Elementary to Pre-Calculus, English, Writing, Chemistry, Biology, and am comfortable with most other subjects. I'm known for my laid-back personality and bringing a smile to every student's face. I endeavor to maintain a positive, fun, and instructive atmosphere ensuring that my students remain focused and succeed with every goal set.
I hope to hear from you soon! Have an excellent day.
Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is to maintain a positive, relaxed, and, ultimately, engaging atmosphere with my students. You're awesome!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
My typical first session with a student starts with me asking about my student's hobbies and interests and showing interest and relating to them somehow. If there is time for a break, I offer to play a videogame or play something they enjoy! Other than that, I ask about their goals for the tutoring sessions and guide the process to be as efficient as possible for them to succeed.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I always teach my students more than the material at hand by showing them the worth of completing homework, studying for tests, and taking comprehensive notes.
