Engineering Professional Offering Math Tutoring in Houston with 7 Years Industry Experience

Methodology

As a tutor, my teaching methodology will tend to be more flexible than a typical school teacher's would be, as I will have the advantage of being able to tutor your child in a 1-on-1 environment. This allows me to get to know your child and adapt my teaching to best help them learn. I ask them what problems they are having the most difficulty with and focus on helping them understand and memorize key concepts and rules to solve similar problems.

Background

I currently work as an engineer, but teaching is my passion. I am actually working on getting my teaching certification right now and plan to teach full-time some day. During college, I spent two summers as a teen camp counselor, and I volunteered as a middle school leader in church for over 4 years. I also worked as an undergraduate researcher and as a grader in college.
