Mathematics/Philosophy graduate teaches you how not to need tutors anymore for math

Methodology

My teaching method is strongly based on direct engagement with mathematics and mathematical ideas.

My main three goals are the following:

1. To help students develop mathematical literacy.

2. To relieve mathematical anxiety through play and exploration.

3. To allow students to have enough time to be creative and develop their own ideas so they won't have to rely on others to develop their ideas.

I am a strong believer that the usual formula pushing methods of K-12 curriculum are insufficient for developing mathematical literacy and the primary reason why students struggle to learn and synthesize new concepts. For me, mathematical literacy is not about learning how to say big words, read formulas or symbols but rather a way of learning about how apply practical reasoning from the past to mathematical ideas that we are trying to learn now and formulating those ideas in plain language (English).

With regard to how my lessons will usually go, sometimes my lessons can be engaged and creative, allowing students to lead in their explanations of their own ideas and my correction of those. Other times they might challenge the student to work in silent, independent investigation and questioning. I try to adapt my style depending on the personality of the student in question.

Ultimately, the goal is to try to get students to engage authentically with math through play and practice so that they can take full ownership of their understanding and be in touch with their inner mathematician instead of needing to always rely on others.

Background

I am a graduate student studying Computer Science with a bachelor's in mathematics/philosophy from Purdue University. I've been giving lessons in mathematics since I was in high school, with experience teaching anywhere from middle school to college level math.

Details

Travel expenses are free if you are located in or near the Issaquah-Sammamish region.

My style intended to teach you (or your child) how to frame, read and engage creatively with mathematics that goes beyond superficial symbol pushing and into the realm of being able to *own* the ideas that you learn in tutoring. Ultimately, my goal as a tutor is for you not to need me anymore.

I encourage you to try me out for a few lessons. If you are unsatisfied with my tutoring, you are free to have all of your money (with the exception of travel expenses) back within the first two lessons.
