I love mathematics and physics and I enjoy imparting that enthusiasm with others. In my five plus years at Brigham Young University, I had the opportunity to tutor many in advanced mathematics. I tutored for courses in astronomy, multivariable calculus, and partial differential equations. I think that learning is the greatest experience that one can have in this life and is indeed the essence of life. My enthusiasm and my skill makes me a great tutor.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Imparting knowledge depends on two things; (1) a love for learning and gaining understanding, and (2) a love for sharing it.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Typically, I would gain an understanding of where the student is at in their learning; what they might struggle with, and ask what they want to accomplish in their tutoring sessions.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Encouragement and enthusiasm goes a long way; however, the best way is to have a student see that their accomplishment was a result of their diligence and hard work.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I think that having a vision of what you want to accomplish is important, but the best motivation comes from accomplishing small tasks using the basics.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would go back to the basics; whenever a student is struggling with a concept, it is probably because a more fundamental part was missed or skimmed over too fast.
