I have tutored Algebra 2 since high school. Having a strong grasp of the subject led me into a excellent understanding of math in college, resulting highest grades in college level math courses. Again my main job was not a tutor during my college years, but whenever there was a chance I tutored Algebra 2, pre-Calculus, and Calculus.
...To teach proofs, I like to start with the simplest proofs and build up slowly. This gives students a chance to see how to how proofs work before going to the more challenging proofs. I also encourage testing theorems before proving them, to see if they are true and to gain intuition.

I am an aerospace engineering major at Texas A&M University. While at Texas A&M, I received a minor in mathematics and I helped many fellow students in calculus and pre-calculus. Aside from being a full time student, I was in the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M and I have learned self discipline and study techniques that I wish to impart on other students.
...I use manipulatives in my instruction to help students visualize the math and to be hands on. I have taught Geometry for 6 years and had my junior high students test out of high school geometry when entering public school from the private setting. I keep the geometry visual and use as much hands on with manipulatives as possible.
I received an A in high school geometry and have recently restudied it for the GRE Math section on which I scored in the 80th percentile I have had multiple writing courses in both high school and college. I excelled at all my writing and grammar courses, receiving nothing less than an A-. I am qu...
