I'm a student at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. Next year I'm planning on pursuing a PhD in Evolutionary Anthropology at IU or Rutgers University. This year I'm working primarily as a math tutor, for any level of math from middle school through calculus. I know that there are a lot of bright students who feel left behind in math class, and end up feeling frustrated and overwhelmed. I'm here to help! Together we can go over the background concepts, until you feel comfortable and really understand the problem (not just the answer). If you need help understanding your math homework, please contact me!
In college I minored in German, as well as spending a full year abroad in Germany. This was a great opportunity for me to become fluent in German. I would love to tutor any level of German, from beginner to advanced. I also studied Latin at my university and would be more than willing to help students with Latin!
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy with math is to emphasize concepts over merely plugging in the answer. I want my students to really understand and feel comfortable with the material, and to never ever feel like it's just random numbers! For languages, I like to incorporate speaking and listening into my teaching rather than just going over grammar and vocabulary!
