I use probability in my everyday life all the time, and frequently tutored the probability class at Jefferson High School. It's one of my favorite subjects for its uses in the world and how it can influence decision making. 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 [more]

My Name is Tom O. and I am a 2006 graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I was a mechanical engineer with Caterpillar for three years and I tutored at Wright College (one of the City Colleges of Chicago) for over five years. I tutor different levels of mathematics from intermediate algebra to third year calculus (including differential equations and linear algebra). I also tutor different levels of Physics (both calculus and non-calculus based), general inorganic chemistr... [more]

My time teaching math to middle school students taught me the importance of making a connection between real life and learning. My goal is to make each lesson engaging by using real life examples to better help students understand concepts. I also work with students to better organize their study area and their time, and to help them find the study methods that work best for their learning style. A little bit more about me - I am a Mechanical Engineer who loves to help students succeed ... [more]

My name is DJ, and I excel in tutoring a variety of math subjects. I graduated from the University of Southern California with a BS degree in chemical engineering and a minor in statistics. My GPA was 3.5, much higher than that in my math classes, including a 4.0 in classes for my statistics minor. I can tutor most math subjects, including algebra I, algebra II, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, and statistics. I also do ACT math and SAT math test prep (I received a 34 on my ACT ... [more]

The journey that has taken me to have an interest in tutoring has been a winding one indeed. I was an extremely successful student, and I earned a full scholarship to the University of Arkansas. I scored a 34 on my ACT, and I had a 4.33 and 3.92 GPA in high school and college, respectively. In short, I was a very successful student in high school and college. I was a business major, and went into the business world for several years, but I didn't find much joy or purpose to my job. That'... [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]

Currently working on masters degree in applied math, focus on statistics. I am a high school math teacher and swim coach. I am currently in my third year of teaching and teach sophomore level math (algebra, geometry and statistics, as well as AP Statistics). I love teaching high school because I think the students are awesome. They have extreme potential and amazing personalities. I am currently attending the University of Colorado Denver to get my masters in applied mathematics. I have a ton of math background, am very personable and would love to help you out! ... [more]

The best tutor isn't the one that you come back and see every week. The best tutor is the last one that you will ever need to see. It should be my responsibility as a professional tutor to do everything in my ability to work on both short-term solutions and long-term solutions to my student's academic struggles. For students to be able fend for themselves in the academic pursuit is a gift of the highest order. However, that gift does not come over night. On the other hand, tests are already ... [more]

I tutored a college student in probability this past spring semester and we were able to improve his test scores and grades considerably as he understood the material better. Availability: Mon/Tue/Wed afternoons & evenings. Location: Standley Lake Public Library. Attending Purdue University for math education, I quickly learned how much I love helping students understand math. It's my passion. I've found that simply learning formulas isn't the right way to learn. Students need to know what's going on, and then the formulas become easy! I have taught math at the high school level in four diffe [more]

I'm a 2006 graduate of Brown University, where I studied writing, literature, math, and critical theory among other things and a 2012 graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, which many consider the best writing program in the world. I've worked as a tutor, teacher, or professor for twelve years. I taught high school math and high school English before entering graduate school. From 2012 to 2014, I served as the writer-in-residence at Cornell College, where I taught creative writing. I have pe... [more]
