Sometimes students just don't feel quite up to the task of an advanced course. I identify with those students since I've had the same experience. But since I also figured out how to salvage situations like this, I can help you do the same. I have years of experience in tutoring students in both high-school and college-level algebra, and I would be happy to help you, too. I have more than 30 years' experience teaching at the high school and university levels. I love my students and flourished working in the classroom. Now I am free to give each student the attention that he or she deser [more]

Hi, my name is Rachel, and I love to help students understand what they're learning in school. As a graduate of Biola University, I have found myself in a position to help students with what they do not understand. While at college, I spent some of my free time (when not working at the campus bookstore and doing my own homework) tutoring students in the local community. Since then, I have had the opportunity to regularly help students both with their homework and to help them learn concepts t... [more]

Science and Mathematics are the intellectual tools that have generated the great technologies that we take for granted in our daily lives. It is important to invest in and develop upon our continued generations with the practices and techniques that allow for continued innovations in our technologies, processes, and policies. My goal as an educational consultant is to assist in this process through tutoring and mentoring for students in mathematics and sciences. I have been tutoring/mentor... [more]

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

I have tutored algebra II for over two years, both with Wyzant and through a private agency in the San Jose area. This class is a big step up from algebra 1, and it often includes a student's first real exposure to trigonometry. If the student had any difficulty with algebra 1, ironing out those problems will be a top priority. Thankfully, this course is often very similar to precalculus, so if you learn the material well you won't have as much work to do if you continue to precalc. I am new to Portland, just moved from the SF Bay Area! I am looking forward to getting to know the city. So far [more]

One of the best parts about Algebra II is that you finish numbers! The geometry and algebra keep going on into the stratosphere of calculus and variations and multiple dimensions &tc, but at least one big chunk of math wraps up; the imaginary number i "completes" algebra. (And actually, it does exist, it isn't merely a symbol or concept.) I first tutored a friend with her algebra in 1987. Since then I've taken a degree in physics and if you google 'sangaku' you'll see one of my favorite types of algebra puzzle. If the roots and quadratics and polynomials and exponents and rational expre [more]

I'm a Mechanical Engineer with five years of working experience who has always been drawn to helping others understand math and physics. This started in high school when I helped two of my closest friends gain a better understanding for physics. I am a big believer that different people learn in different ways, and I enjoy figuring out how to adjust the concept to the student rather than the other way around. By far my greatest passion and understanding lies in mathematics, though I am happy ... [more]

Even though I've been tutoring Math for several years, I've never felt like I was a natural. Math at this level can become abstract and difficult. I work hard with students to give them an intuitive sense of what's going through a variety of explanation in simple language so that they understand what to do on test day. I discovered my passion for teaching at Grinnell College, where I learned huge difference having committed and engaging instructors able to explain complicated material simply makes to students' learning. I had the opportunity to work as a student mentor for several classes the [more]

Hello, my name is Daniel and I tutor in music and math. I have a BM from Lawrence University in saxophone performance with an emphasis in Jazz Studies and a minor in math. Currently I am studying at Portland State University for a MM in Jazz Studies. I have performed with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and won several local competitions. I traveled to Strasbourg, France to attend and perform in the World Saxophone Congress an improvisation on a silent film. I have perfect pitch and can he... [more]

Hello! I am Shohei. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics. I have been tutoring at Portland Community College since this April. I have helped students who were studying for the GED Math Test in class and also outside class for those who needed extra help. I took various approaches to break a problem into understandable/solvable chunks for the students. I really enjoy tutoring when students start to see something that they haven't thought about. I enjoy sharing everythi... [more]
