I understand the mindset and aspirations of students when confronted with challenges in math. I use a narrative based teaching methodology to explain mathematical concepts to students that extends beyond textbook problem solving and is helpful in handling life situations as well. It is my intent to help my students build mathematical instinct by initiating an inquisitive questioning process through an objective dialog. I use contextual learning as my teaching style to help my students draw c... [more]

I am a certified math teacher (grades 7-12). I have been a Level 5 teacher (highest effectiveness score as determined by State of Tennessee) consistently throughout my teaching career. I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry at the high school level and 7th and 8th grade math at the middle school level. I currently work part-time for Knox County Schools as a Numeracy Coach assisting math teachers with curriculum and teaching strategies. My goal with a student is to help them improve... [more]

I am a full-time professional tutor with a great deal of experience in both individual and group atmospheres. My tutor expertise includes math (Pre-K to Calculus), English (concentrating on essay composition, sentence structure, grammar, reading, and language arts), ACT/SAT test preparation, chemistry, economics, and accounting. I also tutor any subject that mainly requires study skills and memorization, such as history, psychology, and biology/anatomy. In addition, I am a study skills/tim... [more]

I went to school to study physics and ended up getting a Ph.D. in condensed matter physics. After working in applied physics for a while I realized that I really missed the experience of teaching. My goal now is to continue working at Colleges that focus on education and work on creating strong distance learning techniques and problems to bring STEM education to those who do not currently have easy access to it. I currently am a professor at South College and teach physics and math courses. ... [more]

As a tutor, I strive to improve more than a single grade or subject area by working with my students to develop better habits and study methods. Individuals learn differently and at their own pace so I focus on both strengths and weaknesses to improve problem-solving and organization skills. I believe that with the right kind of support and encouragement anyone can be a 'math' or 'science' person. My undergraduate degree is in Chemistry with a minor in Mathematics from the University of ... [more]

My name is Joseph. I recently graduated with a BS degree in Physics and have a minor in Mathematics. I am a science nerd and see math as an important tool that can be used in multiple situations. I enjoy playing guitar, reading, being around friends and family, and keeping up with the latest scientific research. I have a Quantum Physics tattoo - Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle to be exact. I plan to continue my education by attending graduate school in the near future.... [more]

I decided during college days that I wanted to teach. I majored in Mathematics in college. So, I continued my education and received a Master of Arts in Teaching at the University of Memphis. My minor was in Mathematics for my graduate degree. After college I taught for a short while in a Baptist elementary school in Memphis. I found out very quickly that I did not like teaching in a classroom. Most of my time was spent in classroom control. I did not enjoy that. So, I moved to severa... [more]

The "Aha!" moment is one of the best parts of the learning process. I love helping a student move from utter bewilderment to mild confusion to complete understanding in their subject. There are few more fulfilling ways to spend time. I have over a year of experience tutoring university athletes in various math subjects, chemistry, physics, Spanish, economics, and accounting. During that period of time, I also facilitated math lab hours, teaching math to multiple students at the same time. ... [more]

I am a sophomore at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, where I am currently pursuing a triple major in Mathematics, Physics, and Business on the pre-med track. I have a variety of experience tutoring in math ranging from Basic Math, Algebra 1/2, Trigonometry, Calculus, and Differential Equations. I am also pursuing a minor in French and have taken 8 years of French classes. I do freelance tutoring at my school and was involved in many after-school organizations during high school where I ...

I am originally from Pennsylvania, where I received a Bachelors of Science degree in Physics in 2016 from Shippensburg University as well as completed a minor in Mathematics. I completed 32 credits of math courses despite the minor only requiring 18 credits. I was a tutor in the physics department for 2 years and helped students with homework problems as well as preparing for tests. It is always rewarding to see students succeed in something they thought impossible! I moved to Tennessee to st... [more]
