I'm John, and I do a little bit of everything! I'm currently a medical student at the University of Wisconsin, and I did my undergrad at the University of Minnesota. In between, I did a couple of terms of service with AmeriCorps - first as a math tutor at Pratt Community School in Minneapolis, and later as a math tutor at Memorial High School in Madison. My approach to tutoring is that all students can be successful if they are well understood and if concepts and ideas are communicated clear... [more]

Developed formulas for coordinate proof. I have tutored geometry for over 4 years at both the high school and college level. My name is Seth. I have loved math every since I was a little kid. It was the subject that always made sense to me and I found fun in the ability to solve problems. This passion that I have is shown in my tutoring style. I try to show how math isn't just a lame subject, but try to show how to be enthusiastic about it. I have tutored almost every subject in math while I was a math teacher at Sylvan Learning Center. My expertise is in more advanced material like calculus [more]

I am Illinois certified middle school math teacher at Morgan Park Academy, a private school on the south side of Chicago. I love teaching young people not only the step by step processes of solving math problems, but also the concepts behind these processes. I'm passionate about what I do and live for those a-ha moments with my students. Seeing a student finally understand a difficult concept and develop confidence in their abilities is a thrill that I always look forward to. I have taught ... [more]

I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Richmond who is double majoring in Physics and Mathematical Economics with a minor in Math. I am currently an undergraduate research student in a biophysics lab work under a PhD recipient to analyzing fibrins in the body to see their mechanical properties and what those implications mean. I founded and currently run the Robotics Club on campus and have been successful in creating a start-up business for myself. With these abilities ... [more]

I have had excellent success in helping students understand Geometry. As an experienced and patient tutor of physics and of math subjects through calculus and college first year linear algebra and differential equations, my great delight is in seeing the "light bulb" of comprehension in my students' faces. These subjects are not as difficult as they often seem to my students before they meet with me. My concrete illustrations and introductory exercises have been highly successful in getting students on track for academic success and in recognizing their own unt... [more]

I prefer student-centered approach over instructor-centered approach. Learning should be fun and personal. I love teaching. I started tutoring kids and teaching them origami during my high school years. I tutored physics and chemistry at the learning center in a college during my undergraduate years. I graduated with a PhD in chemistry. Currently, I am obtaining a Masters in education. I have taught for 10+ years in different schools, including some of the largest and top-ranked universities....

I have had experience in high school being an SAT tutor for math and English for Kumon, and in college when I TA'd general biology lab and tutored students in biochemistry as a work study. My approach to tutoring is more one-on-one and visual rather than lecturing general information from textbooks. I come prepared with example problems that increase in difficulty and diagrams to help them grasp the lesson as I am also a visual learner. I enjoy teaching because I feel fulfilled when my ...

Throughout my long history as a teacher and principal in public school education, I have identified the best instructional practices that maximize student learning. I address all types of learning styles. I ensure that all prerequisite skills are mastered before moving through the next part of the curriculum. I find, particularly in Mathematics, that students who do not have the necessary prerequisite skills will ultimately fail because they simply are not ready to address more complex skills... [more]

Anyone can provide instruction; to lead someone down a predefined path does not require an abundance of knowledge, or even skill. But to 'educate' ? to point out connections between seemingly disparate data and elucidate complex concepts, to explain the 'why' of things and inspire novel ideas, to spark and fan the flames of enlightenment and self-determination, to empower a person to think for themselves ? that is, to teach, ? this takes someone uncommon: someone in love with learning, dedica...

I taught middle school math for 35 years in the Watertown School District. I was the 1999 Darcy Foundation Award winner for district teacher-of-the-year. I do not believe in teaching "tricks" to do math, but rather have the student understand "why." I truly believe that anyone is capable of being successful in Math. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy and I am willing to travel to a location convenient for the student.... [more]
