Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: So many students are studying from home - it can be very frustrating, especially for the STEM subjects! Compounding this, parents are not always the best resource for these topics. I can help! Have been successfully tutoring students online for 5+ years. This virtual learning environment is not new for me. In my experience, students often say to me, "I understand the concept, but I cannot do the problems." I find the the exact opposite situation exists. The students have often learned how to copy the method for solving a particular problem by following the examples. However, they have not mastered the concept at all - so when the problem looks just a little different from the example, they flounder. So, rather than "just" showing a student how to attack a problem, I focus on teaching the concepts. Once the concepts are mastered, then the student can do every problem! I love watching students transform from timid to confident!! When students struggle academically, they can become frustrated - and even worse, their self-image can suffer. I LOVE when students get a handle on the subject material and it genuinely makes them happier!

    $40/hour k-12 $50/hour college+

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Tutoring, by its very nature is a one-on-one interaction tailored to the student. Typically, a student comes to see me with a problem, section, lesson, topic that is troubling. Perhaps they failed the last test, etc. For example, a student may announce that (s)he doesn't know what's going on in class, or homework is too difficult, or there is an upcoming test ... it depends. I typically start by asking the student to try a problem while I am watching, so I can see where the breakdown is occurring. This forms the springboard for the lesson. Often the issue isn't what is presented - say, an inability to do the homework on rational expressions, may instead become a lesson on how to handle fractions. Sometimes, I have students open the book and together I walk the students through learning how to read a math book (not the same as reading a non-math text) - so that the students can use all available resources. Before the end of the lesson, I always make sure that the student can independently solve the problems. I want the student to know where (s)he can find additional information/examples/problems. I feel that my value-added is my ability to translate the concepts into something that the student truly understands. The key component is to make sure that the student learns to work independently.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a BS in Engineering and a PhD in Rehabilitation Science. I have taught math and science in the classroom - and have over 20 years experience tutoring.
