Because probability is included in several curricula, I have tutored students in it the past several years. I took a probability class as part of my master's in teaching degree, and because I've been working with it most recently, I can help students get the basics of it mastered so they are ready for more upper-level problems. I started my work out of college as a middle school teacher. Then, I worked in business world to learn how knowledge is used outside the academic environment. It helped prepare me to teach students what lies ahead after school. Wanting to learn new cultures and cont [more]

I graduated from UC Berkeley in Electrical Engineering with high honors (top 10% of all graduating engineering students), and a minor in Mathematics. I also have a Masters degree from Stanford University. I've always been an excellent student; I was always able to understand very difficult math, science, and engineering concepts. I volunteered as a tutor at Berkeley and I have been a volunteer tutor for several years. I've been professionally tutoring for over 1 year with over 400 hours of tu... [more]

I have detailed knowledge of all the fundamental aspects of probability. These include, but are not limited to: addition rules, multiplication rules, independence, tree diagrams, disjoint events (mutually exclusive), conditional probability, and the application of Bayes rule. Two of my specialties at the college where I tutor are probability and statistics. Many students of nursing and behaviorial science come to the tutoring center for help with these subjects. Hi, my name is David. I have worked as a math tutor for several years. In fact, I began my tutoring career shortly after I graduated [more]

I am a recent graduate of the University of Minnesota in the College of Science and Engineering. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in mathematics and a minor in computer science. I have a great deal of experience tutoring math. For all four years of college, I was a teaching assistant for the University of Minnesota Talented Youths Mathematics Program where I worked with students in grades 6 - 9. I also volunteered my time to tutor at-risk students at a Junior High School in math and ... [more]

I have been a math and computer science tutor since 2009 and have worked with over 100 students individually. My students range from elementary school to high school seniors. I tailor each lesson to the student's needs and current abilities, helping them to understand the concepts as well as providing homework assistance and test preparation including standardized tests such as the SAT (Math), SAT Subject (Math Level I and II), ACT (Math and Science), and AP (Calculus and Computer Science)....

As a former high school and middle school Math Teacher from Massachusetts, I know that one of the biggest hurdles to learning math is not just learning about the rules and properties of numbers, functions and geometric shapes but also confidence to solve the problems presented to the student. Many of my former students were blocked by their lack of confidence to be able to find and figure out the answers themselves and after working with them to be patient and apply the principles they learne...

...and most of all considerate. These were attributes that many of my students over the years have described me with. I believe that a tutoring session should feel like a gentle workout at the end of which one would feel their mind weary but not exhausted. The exhilaration of learning and mind-expansion would overwhelm the weariness and make the experience so enjoyable that it produces a sincere desire of wanting to learn more. The threshold of the mental workout would be raised higher - ... [more]

I'm Tom! I just completed my Ph.D. at Boston College and will start as a professor at Swarthmore College (PA) this Fall. As a graduate student at BC, I have been the sole instructor for six courses including Calculus, Probability, and Statistics, as well as a Teaching Assistant for several others. In that time I twice received the Donald J. White Teaching Excellence award. One of the primary reasons I chose a career in academia is what I like to call the "ah-ha moments," when a something...

Numerous successes in school and many years of work experiences as a supervisor prepared me to do well as a tutor. At my high school, two out of three years, I ranked in the top three on the national math test. While in college I did extremely well in subjects in which attention to detail was critical. More than one instructor requested my help in proofreading and editing mathematics or computer science textbooks. In the workplace, I was promoted to Service Manager and given many workers t...

I encourage my students to become independent learners. Although I am confident in my ability to break down scientific concepts and principles, my goal is to guide the student through the lesson plan and develop crucial study skills, while resorting to explanations to avoid hindering the flow of the lesson. Unfortunately, most students who request tutoring in math and science have lost confidence in themselves from the shortcomings of the educational system. It is important for me to pract... [more]
