I take a sophisticated approach to teaching the material in this class. I show students the connection between precalculus and calculus. I like to bring students up to speed on many calculus concepts while they are in precalculus. For instance, I teach students about limits and the difference quotient which are both covered in the first few weeks of calculus. In addition, I will introduce them to the first derivative so that they are not overwhelmed in calculus I. My name is Kirk, and I specialize in performing minor miracles. I have even performed a major miracle or two. I am so confident i [more]

Hi, my name is Tracy. I was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan and in my late 20s I came to America with very little English. As a result, the only job I could find was in the Chinese restaurant business. After some years, I was frustrated with my inability to communicate with customers, so I enrolled in an ESL class and studied very hard. Later, with encouragement from my ESL teachers, I took community college level writing classes and, with much persistence, gradually improved my English. Te... [more]

Pre-Calculus is a review of all the math you have had up until this class, plus a few new things you will need to know before you head to Calculus. As a result, this class covers a LOT of material and can be a struggle for many students, particularly if they did not understand math material previously. Let me guide you through this course, targeting areas where you might not quite remember certain techniques or rules, and I will make sure you get through unscathed. And if you plan on continuing to Calculus, I will make sure to prepare you for Day 1 of that course as well. [more]

I discovered my preference for teaching and helping those that struggle with understanding concepts during my graduate work. I have a passion for learning and for learning the most effective routes for concept building. This is the basis of how I structure my tutoring sessions regardless of subject. I believe that conceptual understanding followed by appropriate application of learned tools for maneuvering within the concept is the key to learning and internalizing a subject as opposed to ro...

As an instructor I have a broad set of experiences both in terms of subject matter, group size, and age of students. My first teaching experience came at the University of Kansas as a college algebra instructor and tutor. Each semester I had a class of approximately 20 students and tutored roughly 10 hours a week. The majority of this tutoring was one-on-one; however, when it proved advantageous, I would tutor small groups of 3-4 students. Later in my undergraduate degree, I led a student bri... [more]

I've taught math for the last 12 years. My experience has been at the middle school and high school levels. I currently hold a credential to teach mathematics at all levels through AP Calculus. I have taught several sections of Pre-Calculus at the high school level. I am a graduate of UC San Diego with a degree in Management Science and a minor in Art. I have a Master of Education from UC San Diego with credentials to teach Mathematics and Physics. I have supplemental credentials to also teach Business, Economics, and Art. As a high school student I scored 790 on my SAT Math, 800 on my S [more]

As a lifelong learner, I am very driven to help others achieve their goals in the classroom. I've been a high school and college math tutor for 8 years, and worked for UCLA to teach upper division linear algebra. I do not aim to simply get my students to pass, but truly help them understand the material so they are not simply regurgitating information. I specialize in tutoring Pre-Calculus, Calculus I/II/III, any lower division math/stats course (linear algebra, discrete, diff eq's, etc.), ... [more]

During this past year, I was one of the Pre-Calculus teachers at the Army and Navy Academy. I am very familiar with the topics that students have trouble with. I have been teaching Physics for the past 5 years and I truly love it. Before that, I tutored it for 4 years. In college I chose Physics as my major because I enjoyed it and it made sense to me. I decided to tutor it because I wanted others to see the same things. My goal, still, is to show my students that Physics is not hard and can be fun to learn. I have taught at large public schools and small private ones. I am not limited t [more]

I have experience as a high school Science Olympiad coach, a high school tutor for physics and math, and a teaching assisant for physics and multivariable calculus at the university level. I like to take an "inverted pyramid" approach, in which I emphasize a strong grasp of a fundamental concepts of a subject (i.e. Newton's Laws, Kinematics Equations, Maxwell's Equations) and have them apply it to a wide range of problems. I like tutoring as not only does it reinforce my current knowledge ... [more]
