My name is Darby, and I am an avid math nerd. I am currently a student pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering. I really enjoy helping others with their education. Especially when they need help in math! I also tutor many different science related subjects, and I can be a lot of help when it comes to writing essays for various subjects. I have a decent understanding of the tools needed to write a cohesive essay. A list of courses I can help with is as follows, but not limited to just this... [more]
K-6 learning involves a typical two-step learning process. From K-2 (sometimes 3) the student begins with the learning to read approach, and from 3-6 the student is now reading to learn. I feel I am qualified to instruct children in this stage due to 3 things: my knowledge and mastery of the subjects they will be learning day to day, my background in psychology to assist with a child's thought process, and my knowledge of child development to further assist with relating the material to the child's age group.
The CBEST is a test designed to test one's skills in reading, writing and mathematics. I excel at these three subjects and have helped several people through their hardships with the subjects that pertain to this test. Mathematics plays right into my major, and I have completed many classes up to and including calculus (the mathematics subjects on the test only get as difficult as geometry). Reading and writing are two other skills I excel at. I am confident with my abilities to tutor this subject, since English 101, the latest English class I have completed, happens to focus primarily on reading and writing skills.
The TEAS test (Test of Essential Academic Skills) is a test typically taken by those entering the field of nursing. The test focuses on four fields. they are Math, Science, Language and English. The math portion is comprised of arithmetic up through advanced algebra and geometry, which I am qualified to teach with my background in math including all fields up to and including calculus. The Science on the test is comprised of basic biology, chemistry and very basic physics skills, such as: simple chromosomal questions, questions on Boyle's law, acids, Archimedes' principle, and other common science skills. All of which I have covered in college and high school in several different classes, making me an effective tutor in those areas. The final two areas are English and Language usage. The areas cover reading comprehension, vocabulary, and sentence structure. English language skills just so happened to be my minor in college, and I have completed several classes on the subject, making me more than capable of teaching writing strategies, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and sentence structure.
