Your success in Math is my goal.
Math learning and practicing is a key to rational thinking, problem analyzing and problem solving you will face in your life. Being able to apply Math rigor to problem solving in your career translates to greater value to any employer.
Tutoring and teaching experience:
While pursuing my Master of Science in Electrical Engineering at Georgia Tech, I was tutoring Math to High School students; it felt great being able to help the students understand Math and succeed at exams.
At some point in my career, I was a trainer for a professional software editor and enjoyed having my students discover all the software nooks and crannies so they could perform a better work with the software.
My greatest teaching strength is being able to analyze and break a problem in small pieces so that it is easier to understand and solve.
Suggested tutoring methodology:
This is how I would suggest using our tutoring time, of course, I would tailor it to your own specific needs:
25% identify: the assessment, test, lesson(s) you are needing help with
25% learn and solve:
Review the lesson(s) related to those
If this is an assessment, exercise or test; solve those step-by-step
50% practice: I will assist you in doing additional exercises related to the lesson(s)
We will do as much brain computation as possible as this is an important part of Math practicing.
We will write or type as much as possible of the problem and steps to a solution as writing or typing streamlines thoughts and provides an easy way to review the path to a solution.
Curriculum and notice:
Up to 8th grade (included): 1 day notice
9, 10, 11 and 12th grade (Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II and Pre-Calculus): 2 days notice
High School AP, College (AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC and Calculus 1): 1 week notice
If you feel like doing something different after the lesson, we could play a chess game I think there are some connections between chess logic and math logic and for sure both require patience and concentration. Ill happily walk you through the basic rules if needed.
On a completely different scale, we could go for a surf session (anywhere from Fort Pierce Inlet to Juno Beach pier). It is commonly accepted that sport helps brain development. Surfing is the only sport where the play field changes at every wave which requires - making ultra fast decisions (timing, position and maneuvers) - and competitiveness when the spot is busy. 2 very important skills in a professional life IMHO. If you dont know how to surf, I could teach you how to surf (although thats a completely different project!). If you know how to surf, Ill happily explain you some of the physics behind swell generation / propagation, how and why the waves break so you may catch more waves and progress with some math / physics knowledge!
Looking forward to your Math success in Elementary, Middle, High School or College; please contact me with any questions.
