Experience: 3 years
I'm a sophomore at Binghamton University majoring in Mathematics and Economics, both of which I am able to tutor in. I hold a 4.00 GPA. I am comfortable tutoring in Mathematics up to the level of Calculus II (AP Calculus BC), in Macroeconomics up to the level of Intermediary Macroeconomics at the college level (above AP Macroeconomics), and in Microeconomics up to the level of Introductory Microeconomics at the college level (AP Microeconomics).
I tutor based on the philosophy that a strong foundation in conceptual knowledge leads to academic success. I seek to identify conceptual areas where the student is weak and ensure that they leave the session with a better understanding of those areas. In other words, I think that it is more important that the student understand HOW to get the right answer, rather than just knowing what the right answer is. It is important for the student to bring homework, notes, or questions to the session in order to facilitate this process.
