As an Engineer, I found math to be my most valuable tool, useful in all sorts of applications. As a math teacher, I've worked with several geometry students from the local area high schools and online courses. I found that each school and teacher presents Geometry in unique way; My goal as a math tutor is to help each student develop their math skills in a positive and constructive way to succeed their particular class. I'm a retired engineer and math teacher with a love for teaching anyone who wants to learn. As an engineer, I regularly used all levels of math (from arithmetic through calcul [more]

I have been working as a tutor for 16 years. I worked with students as a peer tutor, then as a professional tutor after obtaining my Bachelor's degree and teaching credential. My favorite part of tutoring is watching my students' faces light up when they have an "ah-ha" moment. It is extremely fulfilling for me to have the opportunity to work with students in small groups and one on one rather than in a whole classroom setting. In addition to tutoring, I have been a classroom teacher ... [more]

I am a graduate of San Francisco State University with a degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I have been tutoring and teaching math and the sciences now for several years. I am passionate about science, and communicating that passion to others. My teaching strategy is a combination of various elements. I am a big believer in the idea that the best way to learn is to teach. To that end, I ask many questions to encourage the student to teach me what they know a... [more]

The very last course I taught in the public classroom was Geometry, and I loved it. A pure Geometry course is all about proving more and more abstract ideas using a handful of unquestioned assumptions. My approach to proof writing is to treat it like solving a good puzzle - once you learn the technique, there is no wrong answer if the logic is sound. Many high school courses in Geometry have more emphasis on measuring, reasoning, and applications. It is the branch of math that most easily connects pertinent, real-life & everyday examples to the rules of logical thinking. Whatever the level [more]

I am a former high school teacher of English and French through the AP level. I have done private tutoring in Math, as well as my main subjects. When I am not busy with my husband and three daughters, I love helping other students improve their test scores and their overall grades. I also have fun in group sessions of French conversation. I can help with homework assignments while fostering a better understanding of the subject as a whole.... [more]

I have been teaching science since 1999. I've taught biology, chemistry, human anatomy/physiology, physical science, ecology and health. I have tutored in chemistry and biology. I love to teach students one on one. I am not a "natural" at science. I've had to work to gain my knowledge, and then to teach it. As a result, I've gained an understanding of the difficulties many students face in trying to do well in science when it doesn't come easy. I have a way of explaining content that simply m... [more]

I have tutored for many years for the simple reason that I enjoy it and somehow have the knack for making the difficult seem easy. I am a very positive person and feel people learn best with encouragement. Attitude and self confidence are often as important in the learning process as the skill set. I tutor all levels of math, high school physics and Latin. For the past twelve years I have tutored all aspects and sections of the SAT extensively. I tutor the SAT one on one or in small groups....

I have done my masters in Business management with finance and graduated in computer science. I have great mathematics and problem solving skills. I have worked as a math teacher with tutor vista, from 1/2007 to 1/2012. At the same time worked as math content developer. Presently (since 3 yrs) I am working as private math tutor. So I earned 8 yrs of tutoring experience. I have students from primary, middle grade and higher grade. At the same time I am tutoring for competitive exams like ... [more]

I have over 15 years of experience as a technical writer and over 8 years as a tutor in math, computer science and engineering. As a writer, I know that clear, concise explanations are critical for learning. As a tutor, I make sure my explanations are not only clear and concise, but are presented in a step-by-step fashion that the student can easily understand and follow. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from San Jose State University and a CSET credential for Geomer... [more]

Geometry requires the ability to prove or disprove propositions. There are axioms, statements that are basic and assumed true. From these axioms are deduced lemmas, theorems, and corollaries. I first studied geometry in high school. In addition, in college, I studied analytic geometry, as well as proof in advanced calculus and senior level logic. A good tutor aids a student in acquiring skill. Through the successful solving of problems, fluency is gradually developed along with confidence. I often share my personal learning in how to study to encourage new habits. My overarching aim is [more]
