Greetings! My name is Kam and I am a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara class of 2019. I have my Bachelor of Science in Physics and I tutor all levels from second grade math to calculus and classical mechanics. Even though I have a degree in Physics from a top University I was not always the best student. Throughout high school I personally had to rely on tutors in order to pass my classes. After graduating I had no choice but to attend community college before university. (And I'm glad I did!) After a year in community college I realized I had to find myself and managed to highly improve my grades. I found a passion for math and physics and it was also then when I decided to help others by tutoring them. Although I am primarily a tutor, I am also somewhat of a friend. A relationship I highly believe is necessary between student and tutor.
Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Due to my calm personality, I am a very patient tutor. I also get very disappointed when I fail to teach my students a topic; thus, I take my sessions very seriously.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Assess the student.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Little by little, I'll assign them to read portions of their book.
