I recently graduated from UCI with a biology degree! I can tutor in a wide variety of subjects such as algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, AP Calculus, and high school biology! I feel that I will be a good tutor because I am extremely patient as I have struggled to learn some of these subjects myself. In addition, I can provide supplementary materials based on the topics that the students are learning. Furthermore, I am willing to put in the time and effort until students learn the material!

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that it is important to help break down the topic into digestible pieces. In addition, I feel that graphics can be extremely useful in demonstrating a variety of topics. I think explanations should be backed up by doing all the right practice problems and helping students understand these practice problems.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I would tell them that clarity is often gained by understanding problem areas. Then, I would attempt to help them understand these problem areas.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I would try to really help students using visual representation. In addition, I would keep asking questions to make sure the students really understand the topics. At the end of the session, I would do a couple of practice problems and then assign practice problems to the students.
