...I began tutoring math in high school, volunteering to assist an Algebra 1 class for 4 hours per week. Today I have hundreds of hours of experience, with the majority in Algebra and Statistics, and I would be comfortable well into college math. During the learning process, small knowledge gaps from past courses tend to reappear as roadblocks down the line.
...I have gotten very good at guiding students gently, and helping them achieve the experience and confidence they need to solve these problems independently. I consider Statistics one of my strongest subjects, and am very experienced as a tutor in this subject. I worked at a tutoring center in college and post-college, where I regularly helped with this material.
...I have taken 5 semesters of undergraduate- and graduate-level coursework focused largely on the differential equations of physics. I have a passion for science, and like to share that with others. I mentor colleagues and subordinates at all educational levels, and in a number of different disciplines.
...This has given me much experience with, for example, manipulation of polynomials and solutions of equations. Moreover, my teaching and tutoring experience has placed me in a position to teach algebra repeatedly, as many difficulties for math students stem from problems with algebraic manipulation. I've taught and tutored the entire calculus sequence at UCSD for several quarters.
