When tutoring mathematics or physics, the best approach is an individual approach. The students often already have a basic foundation of knowledge to work with. If this is the case, the best way to facilitate their learning is to go through exercises that take that knowledge and expand on it; slowly incorporating new ideas or techniques as the student becomes more familiar with their base of knowledge. In the case of a student lacking that foundation of knowledge, I work on establishing that first with simpler problems before moving on to the harder material at hand.
I am a recently graduated Mathematics and Physics major from UFV. I have worked with students of all ages from university mathematics and physics students to elementary students. I have most recently worked as a full time summer school teacher/leader with WACSS, the West Abbotsford Community School Society in a classroom with 3 other leaders to improve the young students' literacy skills through various reading and writing activities.
Bachelor's Degree from UFV with majors in Mathematics and Physics (certification pending)
Skilled in many wide ranging problem-solving areas:
Mathematics: Linear algebra, calculus, numerical analysis, differential equations, number theory, modern algebra, metric spaces
Physics: classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, special and general relativity, computer algebra physics, particle physics
