Experienced Mathematics Tutor (4th Year Mathematics Student at UBC) for Grades 4-12 in North and West Vancouver

Methodology

My classes are primarily focused on helping students with school material they are already struggling with, thus, there is no exact fixed format. I try to gage precisely what every student's thinking style in order to ensure a more intuitive and comprehensive approach to material that otherwise looks convoluted at first glance -- some students are fine with traditional methods, but others understand better when concepts are broken down into more basic building blocks (e.g., to subtract 17 from 36, first subtract 20, and then add 3 back to obtain 19). My goal is to find out what cognitive process is at play and work in sync with it to optimize understanding.

Background

I am a 4th year undergraduate at the University of British Columbia with a specialization in Mathematics/Psychology, and have aided students in secondary and primary school with Math, English, French, and Science for the last 7 years, accommodated teaching styles according to the student’s learning method, and determined the most effective way to illustrate concepts difficult to comprehend to contribute to the achievement of high exam scores. I also worked at the Kumon Learning Center for a year, and volunteered as a math tutor at the Squamish Nation Trades Center for a semester.
