Experience:I have been tutoring for about 5 years now. I have experience with first graders and teaching them how to read, to helping parents who re-enter college to get their degree, and working with undergrads here at Davis. I mainly meet students on campus, but am flexible every now and then to meet at the Davis library by the high school. I have patience for every student who is willing to learn. I do recognize there are different learning styles and try to cater to them. I honestly believe, education is all about communication. Therefore, in order to learn, we need to know how to communicate with one another. I honestly enjoy helping people understand what is happening in class which is why I have been tutoring for 5 years. Lastly, my goal is to teach the student the tools they need so that they become independent in their own studies and keep going. I think that is the best type of help you can receive from anyone.
Additional:I am more than happy to work with K-12 students as well as community college. Fastest way to reach me is texting or email. If you call please leave a message stating your name, what subject, and if it is for you or your child.

Additional:I'm very enthusiastic about math and I love it, but I know math can be often challenging and hard! Somethings just involve a lot of hard work and math is one of those, and I believe in tutoring students it's my job to guide you through what work will be most helpful to you. I like to tutor students by helping them not only be more confident in their problem solving skills, but also by truly understanding the material and maybe even enjoying math a little (the later part isn't necessary haha)! If this sounds at all interesting to you please send me an email, and we can get started and helping you out ASAP!

Additional:I am a third year Ph.D student in the mathematics department of UC Davis. The GPA is my mathematics GPA from college in 2013 (which is more relevant that my graduate GPA). I believe that a successful tutoring session includes: (1) Evaluating the student to check what exactly s/he understands and his/her gaps, (2) Presenting all relevant information (e.g. relevant definitions, theorems) that the student may be missing (3) Trying to build intuition, usually through geometric/visual means or by example (4) Going through many different types of examples and explicitly showing where relevant information and intuition is used. I'm organized, patient, and friendly. I've tutored since high school (in 2010), so I've helped almost every type of student. I'm willing to tutor junior high and high school students. I prefer to be contacted by Email.

Additional:I love tutoring all sorts of math topics! Tutoring is a great opportunity to unpack the problems and concepts, so we can understand them deeply and identify them on exams. Having struggled myself in past classes, I understand how essential it is to build confidence in a supportive setting, through engaging problem solving with a tutor. I've had students come to me with major math anxiety or feelings of inferiority, and we've worked quickly to build understanding and confidence... math can be easy when you see it clearly. Just because it's tough now doesn't mean it has to be that way!
