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 have a bachelors degree in civil engineering and took geometry classes in both high school and college and used geometric principals in my working career. I am a retired civil engineer with an interest in helping middle and high school students in basic math skills. I have spent over 40 years in both design and construction of commercial and industrial projects. I was a licensed civil engineer in 7 states. I have tutored students as a volunteer at a Salvation Army homeless shelter and have worked with the Boy Scouts teaching science to grade school children in Knoxville, TN. I am fle [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 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]

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 have been a mathematics teacher in the public schools for many years. I have taught at Tyner High School in Chattanooga, West High School, Lenoir City High School and Powell High School. I have privately tutored many students in different areas of mathematics. I also have been an instructor at the University of Tennessee in the Department of Education, Health and Human Sciences. I believe that everyone can improve there mathematics and test taking skills. Most of the time students jus... [more]

In addition to my own education, I have taught Geometry both at the high school level, as well as tutored many students from a variety of backgrounds over the years. I have taught these classes from several perspectives, including a traditional lecture/homework structure, flipped classroom model, and a discussion-based model. My preferred method of tutoring involves allowing the student to ask questions and then helping them with their confusion first, then ushering in additional concepts to supplement their understanding. In this way the sessions are efficient as well as helpful in building u [more]

I have a M.Sc in physics, and currently pursuing a PhD. I have over 6 years of teaching and tutoring experience at all levels from middle school up to college-level mathematics and physics. I prefer a direct style of tutoring and teaching, in which I focus on attacking tough problems that the student has difficulties with, and on identifying students' weak points right away, and addressing them. My tutoring style can at times be fast-paced or slow-paced, which I vary depending on how I see ... [more]

I have a BS in Physics and a minor in Mathematics. I am continuing on to graduate school in the near future. The ability to visualize coordinate systems is crucial for understanding science concepts. A picture can explain things better than words. 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 [more]
