Hi, I?m Matthew. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor?s degree in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines. In all of my classes there was a heavy focus on biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics as well as a focus on critical thinking and problem solving skills. I?ve found that my experience with a class is almost entirely determined by the professor and teaching assistants as opposed to the material covered. A good teacher can make the world of diff...

Trigonometry and function exploration dominate this class as they lead you in to greater understanding of all you have learned to prepare you to take the next step into calculus and explaining the world with mathematics. I have taught Algebra through Pre-Calculus for 5 years and tutored all levels of college math for 4 years. I enjoy helping a student see the fun and excitement in learning that he or she can be good at math. Many times there are several ways to reach a solution to a math problem. I help a student find their best route.... [more]

Subjects: Pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus and SAT/ACT prep. Pedagogy: My instruction is driven by the student?s goals, interests, and current mastery. I take the time to get to know each student and specifically identify strengths, areas for growth, hopes and dreams. Together, we develop desired outcomes and gather data to assess the effectiveness of the tutoring. Additionally, to fully support the student?s success, communication with their family and te...

I have taught pre-calculus in the classroom as well as tutored students in the subject. The students whom I have worked with generally comprise a wide range of ability levels (including those who struggle with basic algebra skills). Students who have worked with me have reported increased skills and positive learning outcomes after taking my class in this subject. My tutoring method is inquiry-based and consists of asking the students questions to draw out pre-existing knowledge, then refining the questions to isolate which specific steps in the problem-solving process are causing confusion.

I've worked in the analytical software business for a number of years, and have trained software engineers for Fortune 500 companies worldwide. I have extensive practical experience with using math and science for software applications. I have run a software consulting business for over 15 years. I have taught computer science courses for CU/Boulder and Red Rocks Community College. I have B.S. degrees in computer science and physics from Colorado State University. So...why be a tutor? I...

Ive tutored seniors at Jefferson High School in precalculus, and found ways to solidify knowledge gained so it is easy to recall. Confidence is one of the most important aspects of academic achievement. I build student confidence by asking questions and creating a scaffold for students to learn with. This formula encourages students to take an active role in their learning. When students find the answers themselves, they are much more likely to remember those answers when they need them, be it on the ACT or in college courses. One of the best things about this method is it can be used even aft [more]

I tutored PreCalc in the Ozone program at Boulder High and have continued doing so for the last five years. It is a subject that spans the entire spectrum of Math in High School, and it has been a real treat to help students understand the big picture. Finally putting my job aside to pursue my passion, I left engineering and completed both a Math degree (Dean's list) and a secondary math teaching license in 2013. I tutored my way through school and students, at a minimum, raised one letter grade. Most importantly they gained an appreciation of learning how to think, as I guide them through [more]

I have a solid understanding of the subject matter, particularly in Algebra and Trigonometry. Hi! My name is Jon and I?m glad you?re here! I am a very accessible, knowledgeable and proficient tutor who has successfully helped many students increase their confidence, improve grades and pass standardized tests to achieve their goals. Since you are looking at my profile, you or your student has some sort of need that you are looking to me to backfill. I would be honored to help you achieve these. The mastery of any complex skill is a combination of understanding, practice and confidence... [more]

My undergraduate major in education has prepared me to teach a number of diverse learners. I am excellent with one-on-one help and feel like I get information across to individuals in a way they understand. My education classes and student teaching experience have helped me to better understand how different math concepts work. Because of this, I know how to explain concepts in very organized and logical steps. Also, if one way of explaining a concept is not registering for a student, I gener... [more]

I worked in finance as a derivatives trader for 15 years making real-time risk decisions involving multi-dimensional quantitative problems. I?ve always been attracted to quantitative problems because I am more verbal/cerebral/?right-brained? by nature. After reading that the secret to Einstein?s historic intelligence was a colossally-sized corpus callosum I wanted to see if I could strengthen my own corpus callosum by developing my left-brain and recruiting right-brain neurons to be left-...
