My teaching methodology is three fold. The first step is to do a bit of diagnostic testing of the fundamental skills necessary to succeed in the unit/grade level/topic we are studying. IE If you are doing log derivatives but you don't know what a log is, we have to start at an introduction to logs. If you are doing power derivatives and do not know how to multiply x^2 by x^3 or add 2x^2 to 4x^2, it's important to get those fundamental skills down.
Second, we have a strong foundation built, I try to explain the different cases or scenarios. Most units have at most about 5-6 different types of problems. I help students learn how to distinguish between the different types of cases and slowly, clearly explain how to solve each type of case. Stopping after each case to give a few easy problems.
Third, once the student knows the strategies to solve the different types of cases, we focus on building focus, speed and competency. We don't just aim to solve the problem at any pace, we focus on learning to solve the problems quickly. If you are working fast, it's hard to get distracted. If you are working fast, you'll have time to double check your answers on tests and see tiny little simple mistakes. If you are working fast, you'll have an answer for every question.
This is important, as every question you don't answer, is effectively lost marks and you get 0 marks. It's not just about being able to know how to solve the answer, it's about showing you know it well enough you can think thru problems at a reasonable pace and put your answer on paper.
Hello, I am a university student taking manufacturing engineering at UBC-O. Whether you want to give your student a leg-up for the following year and get them a headstart on their math learning or they've fallen behind a bit and are encountering some challenges, I'd love to help yourself or your son/daughter. I've spent the last several years tutoring students in physics, chemistry and calculus with many references to show for it.
I can teach anywhere from 1st grade all the way up to first and second year university courses like Calculus and Linear Algebra.
The only policies I have is if the lesson is outside Vernon, it must be a minimum of 2 hours in order to make the driving time to Kelowna or Lake Country worth the cost of gas, time and effort to travel. In order to qualify for the discounted rates on bulk hours of tutoring, the average sessions have to be 3 hours to 4 hours a time. IE If you book me for most of the day, I will definitely give you a discount.

Learning isn't a problem, physics lessons for all!
Taking trigonometry lessons has never been easier: you're going to learn new skills.
