University of Michigan statistics Graduate offering virtual tutoring in mathematics and statistics for K-12, Intro college courses and test prep

Methodology

I work to alter my teaching style to match up with how my student best learns. I am willing to go the extra mile, and do whatever it takes to help a student succeed. I love math, and I love teaching. To be able to help my students to not only better understand the material, but also foster a student's love for math is one of the best parts of my job as a tutor.

My strategies differ depending on the age of the client. With young students (elementary and younger) I try to get to know them a decent amount in my first session(s), as I find that young kids work better with someone they see as a "friend". I always try to get a sense for how a student learns best (visual, aural, social learner, etc) and then cater my teaching style accordingly.

In early sessions, I often work backwards as well, making sure that the student has a firm grasp on earlier material that gets built on before working on new material.

One question that a student should ponder is what they hope to get out of our sessions together. Some students benefit from me re-explaining material, some students benefit from us working on problems together. This is something we can figure out together as well, but it is always nice to meet a student who has goals for our sessions.

Additionally, it can help me to understand why a student is struggling. Does it stem from a disdain for the subject? Is their teacher's teaching style not suitable? Is the class moving too quickly? Knowing these things helps me to address the issues a student is facing so we can help them to better understand the material and to succeed academically.

Background

I have worked as a tutor for the past five years. I've worked with students of all ages, in courses ranging from elementary school math to college math/stats courses. I've worked with dozens of families over the years and have helped students not only to succeed but to develop a better love for math.

In addition to having worked as a tutor, I have my bachelor's in statistics from the University of Michigan. I worked two summers as a TA for an introductory math class at the University of Michigan and volunteered as a Sunday School Teacher for children 3-5 in my youth.
