I graduated from Oberlin College with a Bachelor's degree in Biology and minors in Mathematics and French. My philosophy with helping students stems from what I found engaging and enlightening in my own education - discussion and exploration of ideas. By framing sessions as a conversation more than a traditional lecture, in my experience students often gain a more complete understanding of, and greater comfort with, concepts than by memorization alone. I also find that, by addressing students... [more]

I took precalculus as a sophomore in high school. I have five years of experience in tutoring precalculus students, being the go-to tutor for the subject. 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 ad [more]

Yes, it is literally true; I won Tutor of the Year at Madison College (MATC) in 2011, working almost exclusively as a math tutor. (I started off as a Spanish tutor.) I LOVE math and traditionally have worked well with people who DON'T love math or struggle with it. I can cover all or algebra from memory; about 90% of trig as well (although for a few topics a heads-up would help so I can review); and I will be reviewing my calc soon so I can offer that as well. (I have taken it through C... [more]

Precalculus is a foundation for the higher level math that I do on a daily basis working as a plasma physics graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have taken many higher level math classes which all on some degree to the material taught in precalc. Hello students and/or parents and thanks for checking out my profile! I am an Electrical Engineering graduate from the University of Washington who moved to Madison in Aug of 2016 to begin a PhD program in the Nuclear Engineering & Engineering Physics department studying plasma physics as it relates to fusion energy. Before e [more]

I learned precalculus on my way to my PhD in physics, so I have a solid understanding and can explain it in several different ways until it becomes crystal clear to you. 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 stud [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 am an engineer. In 2007, I received a Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering from University of Wisconsin - Madison. Although my professional career has been as an engineer, I have extensive experience in providing child care and tutoring. My experience in child care began when I turned 11 and started to babysit children from my neighborhood. Between the ages of 17 and 19, I worked as a camp counselor for a summer day camp. The summer camp was divided two sessions each day: the mor... [more]

Hello, everyone! My name is Brian - I have been teaching and tutoring for the LSAT, GMAT, GRE, ACT, and SAT for over 12 years, and I score in the top 1% on all of these tests. After years of working for Veritas Prep (an industry leader whose books I still use), I have recently moved from the Bay Area/Silicon Valley to Madison, Wisconsin. This will allow me to spend more time with my kids (ages 3 and 1), but also allows me to charge MUCH less than my rate in California. My credentials beat tho... [more]

I have a Ph.D. in physics and was a double major in mathematics and physics in college. I have over 20 years experience tutoring high school students and have received a Certificate of Commendation from the Governor for my service. I have over 25 years experience teaching physics and mathematics from elementary to graduate level. I have taught students topics ranging from the beginning of algebra to partial differential equations. I know the material and know what difficulties people have ... [more]

I am a teacher and instructor with over 7 years in classrooms with students from the 7th grade through college. My students are extremely successful on every high school end-of-course exam and that success continues in their future math classes. Why? We work together to develop intuition, critical thinking strategies, and perseverance. I have training as a SAT instructor as well.... [more]
