I am a recent graduate of UT with a Ph.D. in mathematics, with six years teaching experience. I taught a lot of calculus at UT, so I'm pretty familiar with those classes. I am still in Knoxville a few months more and just enjoy helping folks with math! I've tutored on and off for years, helping every age from 6th grade, to college. I also tutored for one semester in UT's athletic center before starting at UT. It's very important to me not just to get the student through the material, but to... [more]

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 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 have a Ph.D. in physics and work with students who need help in math and physics. Having a physics background requires a lot of spacial problem solving which allows me to help students understand geometry problems due to its visual nature. 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 educat [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]

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]

My specialties include test preparation (SAT/ACT), history, government, English, writing, and grammar, amongst other... [more]

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]
