James W. of Arcadia CA USA Tutor Profile
Tutor Personal Information
Tutoring Style and/or Experience
I've been a full time tutor since I graduated with a degree in pure mathematics from UCLA in 2008. From 2004 to 2008, I worked at a high powered after school program where I taught high schoolers discrete math and computer science.
As far as my teaching style goes, I like to foster a deep understanding of concepts as opposed to a cursory ability to follow a number of steps. So I encourage critical thinking, sanity checks (does my answer make sense), tricks, mental shortcuts, and accuracy. The main problem that math students have is gaps in understanding. To counter that, I do my best to isolate those gaps and ensure the prerequisites are understood before moving forward. I also like to give challenging problems that push students to really think as opposed to questions that can be solved by rote memorization.
I have a love for math which comes across in my tutoring style as well as a patience that only comes from years of experience. I hope that you will consider me as your tutor either locally (San Gabriel Valley) or online via Skype. All ages are welcome.
