The study of chance, events, samples, and outcomes which help us to see just why things turn out the way that they do. The study of probability allows us to have some rationality to support our claims and help us to never play the lottery. 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]

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]

Since my junior year of undergraduate studies, I have been fascinated by random processes. My first real introduction to physical applications of probability theory came in this year when I learned how to apply different probabilistic models to describe how air moves in the atmosphere (i.e. Boltzmann statistics in Statistical Thermodynamics). I have since applied probabilistic models to describe earth movement for foundations in Master's research. I want to share my enthusiasm with you or your child. [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]

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 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]

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]

During my undergrad at the University of Denver I worked at the Math and Physics tutoring centers teaching students in individual and group lessons. At the Colorado School of Mines I was a TA for several undergraduate classes, teaching classes as well as one on one help. I love teaching and helping students achieve their goals and learn the subjects that I love. I think that learning from a passionate teacher makes all the difference. I am invested in my students learning and success. I s... [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]
