Although I love to learn, I thoroughly enjoy helping others to find their potential and see them succeed! I have tutored privately for the past two and a half years. Prior to that, I was honored enough to be selected as a physics Peer Learning Assistant through the Women in Engineering grant at my community college. As a recent magna cum laude graduate, I understand the difficulty presented by certain coursework that sometimes makes success seem insurmountable. My time as an undergraduate tut... [more]

PreCalculus is different from Algebra 2 and should be taught differently. I use the basic concepts of Algebra to support the material in PreCalc. I focus on the skills that will be used most in Calculus when tutoring PreCalc so students can make the connections and be prepared when new material comes up. I have taught all levels of math for over 20 years in Portland. I have spent the past 4 years tutoring high school students through all Algebra levels, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus and Calculus. I specialize in helping students who learn visually and verbally, not just symbolically. [more]

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

In 1998, I started tutoring 3 young kids just to earn extra money as a high schooler, and by 2002, I was doing this as as a full time career with 20+ regular students. Who would have thought that tutoring would become my passion? Throughout all these years, I have taught kids as young as 4 years old to college students. I absolutely love that even when I tutor the exact same subject 20 times, each time is new and interesting because each student has a different personality, learning style, a... [more]

Precalculus...all those different functions and their graphs! This class encompasses a lot of different topics. As any math teacher can tell you, half of calculus class is really algebra/trig skills. If you get solid on these skills now, it will save you a lot of trouble down the road. I have taught precalculus (and SAT Math Level 2) for over two years, both through Wyzant and through a private agency in the San Jose area. I am new to Portland, just moved from the SF Bay Area! I am looking forward to getting to know the city. So far I like it, though there is a lot of rain to deal with! I've [more]

I would be more than happy to be your next tutor. I know that I can bring my strong educational and professional experiences to generate logical connections between the beautiful language of Mathematics and Physics. My educational experiences has lead to understanding nature at the "nano" level and further into the Quantum level while using a full range of Mathematics to conceptualize and describe each problem. In addition with my research background in atomic and nano physics, I know the imp... [more]

I've been training, teaching and tutoring on and off since 1987, and tutoring exclusively since 2005. I tutor simply because I enjoy helping others succeed by mastering the essential principles that will apply in all contexts. I specialize in preparing students for exams like the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT and MCAT, but can also help with advanced math, chemistry and physics at both the high school and college level. I can provide study material and several practice exams. I can usually help a ... [more]

My passion to teach goes back a long way to my school and college days when I used to not only tutor, but mentor students and classmates to make sure they develop a conceptual understanding of the lesson. This passion to teach has only grown with time, even working as an Information Technology executive over the years, I have contributed towards the success of many high school and college students by teaching math and physics, including my two children throughout their academic career ?one ...

Through engineering I was required to take years of math and calculus in order to understand and apply different calculations in physics, including Precalculus. I'm a Mechanical Engineer with five years of working experience who has always been drawn to helping others understand math and physics. This started in high school when I helped two of my closest friends gain a better understanding for physics. I am a big believer that different people learn in different ways, and I enjoy figuring out how to adjust the concept to the student rather than the other way around. By far my greatest passion [more]

I discovered my passion for teaching at Grinnell College, where I learned huge difference having committed and engaging instructors able to explain complicated material simply makes to students' learning. I had the opportunity to work as a student mentor for several classes there before graduating with degrees in philosophy, neuroscience, and linguistics, and try to model my teaching style after that of my best professors. Nothing is more satisfying than helping someone make a break through... [more]
