I have served as a tutor during middle school and high school for subjects ranging from math to history to English. I think that I'm a great tutor because I am knowledgeable in the subjects that I have listed above. I am also very patient when teaching others because I understand how difficult some concepts can be to grasp having struggled with them myself earlier in life.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy can best be described as persistent. I will try a variety of different methods, sample problems, and approaches to make sure the student is comfortable with the material on their own.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I would use situations from my own education where I was stuck with a particular concept and try and show them that everyone gets stuck. I would emphasize that everyone struggles with material, and that with enough hard work, it is possible to learn anything.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Show many different approaches and methods to understand it. Use the book, practice problems, and the internet until they understand it.
