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]

Hi there, I love teaching! My subject specialties are Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, English, and ESL. There's nothing like the rush of putting foreign language skills to the test in real-time conversation. I used Spanish every day during my semester abroad in Argentina, which is where I learned the importance of active practice when learning a foreign language. After Argentina, I went to China to improve my Mandarin Chinese in the same way I did with Spanish, and I enrolled in full time C... [more]

Developing a sound grasp of the concepts and operations introduced in Pre-Algebra is necessary for your child to appreciate the value and usefulness of algebraic reasoning. With a wealth of supplemental materials at my disposal and a patient, encouraging demeanor, I can assist your child in mastering the problem-solving strategies that he or she will encounter in this course. Allow me to enhance your child's mathematical literacy by fostering a sound comprehension and approach to the mechanics of Pre-Algebra. [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]

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 & 8th grade math, Algebra I, Pre-AP Algebra I, Geometry, Pre-AP Geometry, Algebra 2... [more]

With all Algebra classes, I capitalize on your strengths and cut out the useless fluff. If your teacher?s method doesn?t work for you, we find something that does and get you feeling confident with practice. In total, I have 6 years of experience tutoring students in Math from the middle school to high school level. During college, I worked at the Mathnasium Tutoring Center and learned many of the "Mental Math" tricks and shortcuts they taught. Over the years, I?ve developed several other tricks and shortcuts across the board to help my students with the tougher concepts, like factoring, oper [more]

As a certified middle school generalist, my greatest strength is preparing students for high school academics - particularly mathematics. Besides growing up gifted in math, I excelled in high school algebra & geometry, and my college training included linear algebra, business analysis, physics, and statistics - all of which require command of algebra. In my teaching career, I studied the middle school & high school math curriculum very closely, and helped prepare many 6th & 7th graders for high school algebra. [more]

Hi, I'm Connor. I graduated Magna cum laude with a Bachelors degree in Biochemistry from the University of Southern California. I also have a year's worth of graduate coursework in biochemistry from UT Austin. In classes I've taken I always try to focus on the concepts before facts. Especially in biology courses it can feel like the class is one long barrage of facts to memorize, but I hope that I can help students take a step back to frame the facts, and in doing so make it easier to remem...

I devised and taught for five years a summer school pre-algebra program for incoming freshmen students to St. Michael's Catholic Academy (SMCA). All students applying to SMCA must take a placement exam to determine if they are ready to take Algebra 1 that fall. If they performed below standards, then they were required to take the four-week course. It was an homework intensive course covering all of the topics in a typical pre-algebra course. Grades were kept but the course was Pass-Fail. TUTORING PHILOSOPHY Having taught over 1000 high school students while teaching math at St. Michael's Ca [more]

I've been a tutor ever since I was in high school, which inspired me to become a high school teacher. I used to volunteer tutor and then became a paid tutor at the University of Texas at Austin. I graduated from University of Texas at Austin in Dec. 2007 with a degree in Chemistry and also completed the UTeach program to become a certified Texas Science Grades 8-12 teacher. I taught Regular and Pre-AP Chemistry, Regular and AP Environmental Science, and Aquatic Science at Hyde Park Baptist... [more]
