Introduction: "Kyle C., I had the best math experience ever. You made me believe that math is fun. Thank you." -- Nathan Ledezma, Heritage Academy, Class of 2015 I offer outstanding and affordable math tutoring. As a recent high school graduate, I am well-acquainted with the struggles of students today. Employed as a special education tutor and an American history mentor for the last academic year, I have enjoyed lending a hand to dozens of students who need it most, and in the process, I have refined my teaching skills and gained valuable experience. One essential quality of any successful tutor is the ability to fully relate to his pupils; another is patience. Because I have epitomized both these traits, scholars and teachers alike have recognized me as an able and effective tutor. In high school, I was hailed by the faculty as the best student tutor on campus and recognized by my peers as the "Next Albert Einstein." When my classmates needed help with their work, mostly with math, I was happy to answer their questions with thoroughness and concision. Celebrating the improvements they have seen, multiple students took the time to thank me for my assistance. For example, Wyatt Bradsher, who is now studying computer science, told me, "You are the only reason my math grade is not failing. Having you [...] has really helped me learn." I realize that when mastering a new skill, knowing the answers is not enough; a student must understand the material and know how to properly apply it. When I tutor math, I use a variety of techniques to ensure that my students grasp the basic concepts behind each topic, depending on how the students prefer to learn. Some are visual learners, able to interpret diagrams and illustrations. Others are verbal learners, benefiting from spoken or written words rather than pictures and figures. Among my foremost objectives is recognizing how best to teach my students so that they can truly understand the concepts and confidently apply the skills. I specialize in all levels of math up to Calculus I including algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. In addition, I am competent in SAT math, having scored a perfect 800 on the test just last summer. Math and major tests like the SAT can be extremely intimidating but with the right guidance, success is always within reach.
