In high school I loved science, math, debate and music; I studied Applied Mathematics in college. I just finished my Masters and I'm gearing up to start a PhD in fall '17. For the year, I am tutoring full time to pay down student loans, and because I love the work. I tutored privately in high school. As an undergraduate, I tutored for CU's Student Academic Services programs as well as taking courses with the education department to formalize my teaching techniques. As a graduate student, ...

What are the chances of your passing your stats and probability course? If you're in doubt, my 36 years of helping hundreds of students be successful will definitely improve your odds. And you'll probably find yourself enjoying this fascinating and very practical application of numbers. "Why study mathematics?" and "How will I ever understand this stuff?" are two of the most real and common questions I am asked when students, along with their parents, ask me to help. I use methods and techniques that I've perfected over the years to show the applicability and the beauty behind "the beast" know [more]

Tutoring is an act of observation. It succeeds where normal instruction fails because it is geared toward a student's particular strengths. My best experiences as a tutor have been with the students who needed me most, learning how they needed to learn. I have been a tutor in one setting or another since childhood. As an undergraduate I was a teacher's assistant in English, German and Astronomy, a grader in Calculus and a tutor in Physics for scientists and engineers. I have continued to... [more]

I began tutoring in math and science as a sophomore in college and instantly fell in love with the experience. During this time, I've tutored over 60 students in the Stockton and Sacramento area, ranging from as young as 4 years old to as old as 55 years of age. I can truly say that I enjoy working with kids as well as adults. My tutoring approach can vary depending on the student?s needs, personality and learning style. However, my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to thi... [more]

I love to teach students of all ages. I have extensive experience (35+ years) as a professional pianist and piano teacher, and a music degree from UCLA in Music Composition (minor in Piano Performance). I also have a Master's degree from the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, and enjoy tutoring students in Greek, Hebrew, and Latin (I also tutor in French and Spanish!). I won the top entering freshman award at UCLA for academic achievement and have continued my studies in English, math, a... [more]

Hi! I am Michelle. I went to school in New York at SUNY Old Westbury. While obtaining my degree in Mathematics, I also completed many education courses. I went on to San Francisco State University to work on my Master's Degree in Mathematics. I am currently an Adjunct Math Professor in the Los Rios Community College district. I have been tutoring mathematics courses for more than 14 years: private tutoring, tutoring at multiple learning centers, and tutoring online. While working on my degr... [more]

Tutoring largely started out as a hobby for me. I enjoyed helping my fellow classmates learn material and be successful while at the same time learning from them. That cooperative nature of tutoring, working together to achieve student-inspired goals, is what turned it into a passion. I graduated from the University of Puget Sound in Washington with a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics and Economics. As a math department tutor, I was given the opportunity to help college students of all l... [more]

Typically students studying Probability do so as part of general Introductory Statistics course. Unlike most sections of Statistics, Probability is very much like other Mathematics subjects students are familiar with (namely Elementary Algebra, Finite Math, etc.). It relies heavily on Algebraic rules and is largely computational. Success here is largely dependent on working problems applying the rules of counting. There are some novel mathematical concepts here that one must master to succeed in this mostly accessible subject area. [more]

I grew up a math whiz. Minored in Mathematics in college, earned a Master's degree in statistics. I have worked as an educator, test prep instructor, and an actuary, and I'm now back working as a math and statistics teacher and tutor. I have worked with all grade levels and ages. I enjoy helping students master a subject that they have struggled in, and help student gain confidence. A tutor can be the best way to help a struggling student fill in the gaps, and find different ways to learn the... [more]
