Math And Arts Tutoring With Bess
I will always try my hardest to listen to my student and explain math concepts in an easy, digestible way. I also strive to explain things in a way that will create a foundation of knowledge for my students that will help them in higher math classes. I have found that math is really just lots of different pieces of a large puzzle, and understanding how the pieces connect makes higher math easier, more enjoyable, and less confusing. An important skill I have developed in math is knowing when to just memorize the equations, and knowing when to dig deeper and understand how it works. This skill makes me a better teacher, because I am aware of how much needs to be explained or left unsaid. I hope you choose me as your tutor! :-)
Hi!!! I love helping out younger kids and teenagers in subjects they need help in, because having access to free tutors at my school pretty much SAVED my life in Precalculus! I think having a tutor can be a really helpful thing, and it gives me a lot of joy to help others in the way that I have been helped.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I start by asking what questions they have and what they need clarified, then work from there. If they don't have any questions or just need to go over everything, I do some review work. Throughout I do practice problems and at the end I check in with what they feel confused on or need more help on.
