Learning mathematics, physics and other sciences should be fun. My lessons are individualized to make learning not only practical but, interesting and exciting. My goal as tutor is to help students develop an understanding of course material, develop critical thinking skills and intellectual curiosity, and provide opportunities to excel beyond the normal course material. For students that want to explore science and mathematics beyond the typical course material, I can help with self mo... [more]
I have over 15 years of experience helping K-6 students with studies and particularly in areas of mathematics and science. My goal is to help the student develop a firm understanding of the material, learn test-taking methods, and have fun doing so. I hold a BS in mathematics and physics from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire and have post-graduate education in mathematics physics from University of Wisconsin Madison.
I have been tutoring students for over 20 years with about 20% of the students having been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. My methods include assisting these students in organizing seemingly large problems into smaller tasks and treating each smaller task as a goal in itself. I reinforce good work and behavior with immediate praise. I provide step by step instructions using visual aids like colored charts, pictures, animations, and other means that hold attention. Typically, these students increase their grade point by 1 point.
I have over 20 years of experience helping students prepare for qualifying and standardized tests (like TAKS, STAAR and others) particularly in areas of mathematics and science. I know that test preparation is stressful. My goal is to help you understand the material, learn test taking methods, and have fun doing so. I hold a BS in mathematics and physics from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire and have post-graduate education in mathematics physics from University of Wisconsin Madison.
I have over forty years of experience in industrial, communication, and medical electronics engineering fields. I taught electronics at a community college and tutored over 20 students in elementary and advanced electronics. I hold an AAS in electronics and a BS in math and physics. My goal is to help you learn electronics and have fun doing so.
