With a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, I have mastered a variety of math and science subjects, and I enjoy helping others grasp those same concepts. Through teaching large college classes, tutoring one-on-one, and grading assignments, I have learned to look at problems and concepts from many different angles. This skill allows me to teach you the way you learn--whatever those learning styles may be. Much of teaching involves answering the question, ?why??: why does one approach work, while ... [more]

Calculus is my favorite subject to teach and tutor. Whether you love math or hate it or are somewhere in between, I would be happy to help you gain proficiency and confidence as you study calculus. I can help with: evaluating limits; continuous and discontinuous functions; removable, jump, and essential discontinuities; the definition of the derivative; using the derivative to find the equation of the tangent line; computing derivatives using the power rule, product rule, quotient rule, and chain rule; optimization problems; related rates; locating extrema / points of inflection; Riemann sum [more]

Since I started teaching and training twenty years ago, I've loved helping people learn new things. Over the years, then, I've developed a style that is both easygoing and incredibly successful. A tutoring session with me will start with me working hard to understand where you are in relation to the assignment at hand. Soon, I'll be guiding you -- not answering the questions for you, but helping guide you to the answers yourself. I don't leave till you understand the questions at hand... [more]

I have been tutoring calculus for ten years and the majority of my recent students were in calculus or calc 2. I enjoy making math and science more fun and understandable for middle school, high school, and college students. I graduated in spring '08 with a BS in Physics and Math and in spring '10 with a Master's in Engineering from Colorado School of Mines. I was the physics department tutor and supplemental instructor in college for three and a half years and am currently working for an engineering design firm. As of January 2018, I now have 13 years of tutoring experience! I have not al [more]

I have graduate degrees in mathematics and biology and more than 20 years? experience teaching high school and college students; I have been tutoring for as long, especially in math, science, and writing. My experiences as an educator are diverse, having worked with students from many backgrounds, and I understand that a student?s challenges can be as much about the cultural context and learning atmosphere as about the subject matter. I have taught mainstream Americans, foreign students (both... [more]

I have a BA in mathematics from Ohio State University and am working on completing an MA in mathematics at the University of Kansas. I have taught many of the lower-level math courses offered at KU and have tutored students in many of the upper-level courses. I have a pretty wide availability this semester and can meet you either in Anschutz, Watson, or some place else in Lawrence if it is more convenient. ... [more]

I have been a student tutor since freshman year of my high school, I am currently a sophomore at the University of Kansas.

I tutored my classmates in the classes I am enrolled in and in the classes that I have already taken. I tutored students in calculus I and II, college algebra, and chemistry. I am currently a student tutor for my school TRIO Supportive Educational ... [more]

I'm a Ph.D. student in Bioengineering (biomechanical) here at the University of Kansas. What started as a way to earn money on the side while I finish my education has turned into a genuine passion for teaching and giving back. I know firsthand the value of education and how a bad experience in a class or with a teacher can be discouraging at best. I will always be encouraging, optimistic, and I show students how to become confident in their abilities. I'm patient, flexible, and I know wh... [more]
