I am very passionate about high quality education and giving back my knowledge to the community. With over 10 years of tutoring experience, I am constantly trying to improve as an educator and learning about different ways to explain math concepts. I have worked with both high school and college students in recent years across several math courses.

I like to instill confidence in my students and show that they can really excel in math through guided learning and practice problems. I find that many challenges in learning new concepts are due to gaps in foundational knowledge. I am excited to help you demystify and develop strategies for tackling difficult concepts.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I like to ask the student to verbally explain what he or she would do to solve the problem. If there are gaps in understanding the problem solving process, I will help fill in those gaps. I ultimately would like the student to be able to solve the problem on his or her own with my guided help.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would like to get to know the student's academic background (i.e. classes taken in the past) in order to get an understanding of what I can assume and not assume the student knows.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I can provide general problem solving techniques during the tutoring session and direct the student to great online resources for further independent study.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I like to stay positive and optimistic. In difficult situations, I will continue challenging the student with guided questions. I want to direct the student with small steps toward a greater understanding of the problem so that the student can feel like he or she has achieved a result.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I diagnose what the problem is. Usually, I will find a gap in a foundational concept that is hindering learning the current skill or concept and will go back and review that foundational concept with the student.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

I help re-phrase certain passages in everyday language to help with reading comprehension.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

I ask about how much progress the student has made and then work step by step with the student until the solution is worked out. Constantly checking in with the student is extremely important.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

I will usually try to get background information from the student (i.e. hobbies and interests) and try my best to relate those to the current subject he or she is struggling in.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

I would reinforce the student's understanding with new practice questions and evaluate progress.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

I provide the simplest version of problems to make sure the student can successfully answer the question. I then slightly increase the level of difficulty until the sample questions reach the level of the original problem. It makes sure the student is making positive progress.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

I research the goals the student has for the tutoring session and try to get an understanding of what specifically the student needs from the tutor. I usually evaluate a student's needs based on what type of need it is. It usually falls under a few categories: trying to finish a homework assignment, trying to understand a concept, help with going through practice problems for an exam, or achieving a higher score on a standardized examination.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

I get a feeling for how the student learns by testing him or her with a few sample questions (verbal and/or written). Based on the level of the student's understanding, I try to adapt by providing more or less verbal guided questions. I also try to match the pace of explanations with the pace of at which the student is able to digest the new material.

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

I consult the internet for mathematical formulas and practice problems. I also use online interaction tools like a math equation editor and interactive whiteboard to present my explanations. I also use those platforms to allow the student to present his or her solutions to a problem so that it helps me visually understand the student's level of understanding of a concept.
