Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (3rd year in progress)
Experience: 4 years
I offer tutoring in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Undergraduate-level Calculus. I am currently a junior engineering student at a reputable university. I have completed three years of calculus, computer science, physics and chemistry courses and maintained a high GPA. I explain mathematics concepts very thoroughly, because I used to be severely math-phobic. I even failed 10th grade algebra; the textbook seemed like it was written in an alien language. Now, my method is 80-90% visual, and I treat the text as a supplemental manual with problem sets. I have studied drafting and visual art since early childhood, so I always use figures and three-dimensional drawings wherever they can be useful. In an instant message session this can be accomplished with online graphing tools and other free services. For both chat and email exchanges I will provide copious hand/mouse-drawn image files to help illuminate the material. I am experienced enough with image software that I can generate these images in real-time during our instant message conversations.
