I'm Juan! I have a degree in history from CSU Sacramento and am planning on getting my teaching certification in the next year. I have been tutoring students for almost 2 years now and really enjoy helping students understand new concepts and seeing them get the confidence to succeed when they start to understand problems that were frustrating prior.
One of the things I prefer to do with students before tutoring is to get together with them or parents and talk about what they do and don't understand. It makes life so much easier when we know what to address. This has helped me greatly in properly teaching students the materials they need to cover.
I've always understood math easily and was fortunate enough to have teachers that were able to teach various different methods that may be easier than the commonly taught methods. Additionally, I was taught how to really conceptualize word problems which tend to be big sources of frustration for students.
Additionally, as a History major I've learned to think critically but more importantly I have learned various methods to try to make a subject that can be perceived as boring and bring it to life.
Feel free to contact me for any inquiry at all or to schedule a lesson.
