Compassionate Math tutor with 3 years experience looking to tutor remotely o

Methodology

I believe that the best way to teach is to be patient, understanding and to accept that there is no one size fits all approach. Every student is different. The key is to understand what makes them tick. I am known to have a good sense of humour and the ability to put students at ease. I also understand that the frustration some people may experience as they struggle with the learning process is not a sign of failure but a sign that they do care. Above all else it is important that the student cares. To achieve this I am sure to point out the great things they can achieve in life with good math skills and how the world around them is defined by the beauty of Mathematics. I've also worked in many other professions thus giving me a broader view of the world.

Background

Hello. My name is Rick. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Applied Mathematics with a minor in Statistics. For many years I worked as a Computer Programmer/Analyst. I found my calling later in life when I was hired to assist teaching essential skills Mathematics at a nearby college. I now have 3 years of teaching experience and would love the opportunity to continue helping people with the challenges that come from Math. I am looking to teach remotely(I have access to Skype and Zoom). I live in Upstate NY

Relevant Skills

Education
As a Math Tutor/Faculty Associate at Elmira College I assisted a Professor of Mathematics. In classroom settings that involved nearly 100 students, I graded papers, projects and help students who struggled with basic Mathematics such as Algebra. I was also tasked with assisting walk in students who were involved in more advanced courses such as Statistics.

Manufacturing
I worked a variety of factory jobs using drill presses, grinders, Industrial saws, and sand blasters

Information Technology
As a Computer Programmer/Analyst I gained a great deal of skill and knowledge in the application of Software in an Office environment. I am thoroughly familiar with Microsoft Word, Access, Excel and with email. I have experience writing code in a variety of languages specifically legacy systems such as RPG4/400, RPGLE and Cobol. I have worked on the AS400 E and I Systems. I can work well independently or as part of a team..


Customer Service
I have worked a variety of Customer Service roles including a stint in Dining and Catering at Elmira College. These roles enabled me to gain more practical experience with how to work well with others and how to be unafraid of new challenges.
