Perhaps the most counter-intuitive subject that you will encounter in your academic career will be probability. Since kindergarten, mathematics has been framed in definite terms with no room for interpretation. Although the discipline of probability attempts to quantify uncertainty (and does so incredibly well), interpretation of the results obtained requires a firm understanding of the assumptions and conditions that underly the particular method of quantification used. With my wealth of supplemental materials at your disposal, and my ability to convey the mechanics of probability in a simple [more]

My passion for teaching began during my undergraduate years at University of Nebraska - Lincoln after tutoring dorm-mates and participating in the university?s approved teaching internship where I taught AP calculus and AP physics at two Lincoln high schools: Pius X and Parkview, on a prearranged, alternate basis, with a permanent S.T.E.M. faculty member (100+ verifiable hours). I received my Bachelor?s degree in physics with a minor in mathematics (Class of 2013) which includes algebra thro... [more]

TUTORING PHILOSOPHY Having taught over 1000 high school students while teaching math at St. Michael's Catholic Academy, I have found that each student, regardless of age (middle school, high school or even post-secondary) is a unique person who has their own learning style. The key to successful learning via tutoring is to identify that style and use it motivate the student to gain knowledge. There are two major components to my teaching style: whenever possible: 1. provide more than on... [more]

Teaching engineering students in a college for more than 20 years makes me better understand and cope with their situation. Since I had been in the same boat, I think I could approach math more easily. I believe that students excel easily through careful guidance and practice. I specialize in tutoring math for success in school and on the SAT and GRE. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed in your studies. ... [more]

I studied probability as part of my degree plan at UT, and use it extensively in statistics as well. The study of probability is largely about 1. counting methods, often studied in discrete math classes, and 2. learning the various types of distributions commonly used in modeling data: exponential, normal, gamma, uniform, etc,, including the important aspects of each type of distribution, such as mean, standard deviation, memorylessness, etc. Often sophisticated calculus techniques are required as well. As a graduate in math from UT, I am well-acquainted with these aspects of the class. [more]

Hi, I'm Sam! I'm a junior at the University of Texas at Austin, where I study Government in the Liberal Arts Honors program. My love for teaching always went hand-in-hand with my love of learning. The difference between a good teacher and a bad one is night and day, and I was lucky enough to have some incredible teachers growing up. They showed me that a teacher who is passionate about their work can engage even the most inattentive students, and I strive to follow their example with every st... [more]

I believe that tutoring should be done with a goal in mind. It should be a choice that the student makes not the parent and should not be a stressful event. I enjoy working with teenagers and I also enjoy science and math. I teach thinking skills, organizational skills, and help students learn to ask for what they need to succeed. I have an undergraduate degree in physics from Carnegie Mellon University and a masters in molecular genetics and biochemistry from the University of Pittsbur... [more]
