Science and Psychology graduate with 5 years of math and science tutoring experience

Methodology

My teaching methods are taking the time to understand the core issues my student is having, beginning with the basics, and dedicating time to practice problems. A typical class involves the student updating me on their week, I will look at all the graded work that has been returned since our last session, we review the work together, then spend the remainder of the class focusing on new material and assignments. I always end the class with outlining the goals that should be achieved before our next session together.

Background

I am a Psychology graduate pursuing a career in medicine. I have a passion for teaching math and science, and have been doing one-on-one tutoring since October, 2015. I have experience with International Baccalaureate, public school, private school, remedial and gifted curriculums.
