I have used geometry concepts in teaching physics. This involved collaborating with the math teachers in my academy to develop lessons that enabled students to solve physics problems using the math they were studying. This practice kept my math skills current. A student I have been tutoring in geometry had been failing; after five weeks of tutoring, he scored an A on his semester final in Geometry. I retired from teaching middle and high school science with 20 years' experience in 2013. In my last school, I taught Biology, Physics, and Chemistry, and tutored students for TAKS and STAAR tests.

I have a college education in mathematics and engineering from UT. I specialize in advanced math, science, and engineering subjects at the college-level but also teach English, writing, and music. My experience as a teacher spans over 15 years with a strong track record for success. I believe everyone, and I mean everyone, has the capacity to learn, and I do my best to take the subject material and make it as easy to understand and retain as possible. Unlike most teachers, I have strong industry experience, and therefore actually know how math and science ar... [more]

Anecdotally, it seems that individuals tend to perform better in either geometry or algebra. Despite limited and even contradictory empirical evidence to support this claim, the categorical mistake persists. A student may prefer geometry to algebra (or vise versa), but this preference does not preclude a student from performing well in either course. The problems may be different in a formal sense, but the strategies necessary to understand and correctly solve them remain the same. Whether your student needs assistance in comprehending the relationship between angles created by a transversal t [more]

I have taught Geometry and Honors/Pre-AP Geometry at the high school level for over 30 years. I have written curriculum and developed instructional activities for both these courses. So often I find that students have been presented with steps and rules rather than the development of the why something works. Therefore, I take the time to develop concepts and understanding of the mathematics. I have tutored in the south Austin area for the past six years as well as provided instruction for home schooled students. I have taught the following elementary and secondary courses: 5th, 6th, 7th & 8 [more]

I have been a math tutor for five years. I also worked as a middle school math teacher in a high needs school for one year. I believe in the UPS - check method of solving problems. That is: U - Understand the problem - what is being asked P - Plan how you are going to solve the problem S - Solve the problem Check - Check your solution, particularly for reasonableness I believe in giving the students the background so that they can understand how and why certain solution methods work. This... [more]

Geometry is fundamentally essential because it gives such a foundational knowledge of the physical world. I've taught it for 5 years and it's really a lot of fun. It is spatially illuminating so helping a student understand it is actually very rewarding for me. I have taught over 1000 students in Geometry, so let me help you see it the way I do. I taught math for five years at at Austin High School and I believe in making math a language that everybody is fluent in. I take a holistic approach to the learning process and believe it is learned best like any other language: with regular practice [more]

I exhibited talent in math from an early age & remember grasping mathematical concepts quickly & easily. In high school geometry, I immediately realized that the logic, proofs, relationships, and processes easily made sense to me, and I earned a high average without special effort. When I took the SAT, my math score was in the top 6% in the nation. Though not a math major in college, I nonetheless continued my math study & deepened my command of the logic, processes, and practical applications of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and statistics. I have since used my talent & knowledge in geomet [more]

I tutor geometry topics such as quadrilaterals, polygons, circles, three-dimensional geometry, transformations, trigonometry, etc. The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (2400 and 36 respectively), though I too had to work hard to get there, so I know what it's like when you're just starting out. Over the years, I've worked with students suffering from [more]

I am a senior attending the University of Texas at Austin as a Chemistry major in the Dean's Scholars Honor Program. In my over 3 years at UT, I have taken the following courses that are relevant to my preference in tutoring mathematics and science: Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Honors Chemistry 1 and 2, Honors Organic Chemistry 1 and 2, Calculus 1 and 2, Differential Equations, Physical Chemistry I and II, Inorganic Chem, Biochem, Genetics, Polymers, Analytical Chem, and Organic Chem...

I?m Nik! I am an undergraduate student at the University of Texas at Austin where I am working to complete my Bachelor of Science and Arts degree. I am a triplet with two brothers, I also have two sisters, one older and one younger. I loved growing up in a big family and have always enjoyed working with children. After graduation, I plan to continue my education and attend medical school. I have worked closely with the management of INOVA Children?s hospital in Fairfax, Virginia. Prior t... [more]
