Teaching Style

I vary my teaching style depending on the student's particular disposition. I normally allow them to dictate the pace at which I tutor without digressing from our objective. Nonetheless, my goal is to be positive impact on the student. I love to help students get to a level they did not expect they could achieve, and in the same token, I am appreciative when I am humbled by challenging problems for which I have no solution. However, when faced with such a situation, I guide the student in an appropriate direction, and let them know that I will use my own resources to discover a solution and then get back to them. Without question, my style is synonymous to what computer users refer to good programs as, "user-friendly." I am patient with my tutees and steady in my demeanor so that I can gain and hold their confidence.

Experience Summary

I have been tutoring since my sophomore year at Rutgers University. I hold the College Reading and Learning Association Level II (CRLA) certification. I tutored Mathematics (Pre-Calculus, Calculus), Chemistry, and Physics to undergraduate students at the university. I have since tutored students in these disciplines at various levels, such as middle school and high school. I have also tutored adults in the area of Information Technology, subjects such as Introduction to Programming, Web Design, and Database Design, while studying for my IT Certification. I have since attained an MS degree in Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and have been working in the IT industry for the past 4 years. I continue to enjoy tutoring and teaching others; be it students, co-workers, or family members. I feel a tremendous sense of satisfaction when I see others succeed and know that I have played a part in their growth.

Teaching Style

From my tutoring experience, I have noticed that students have trouble understanding the meaning of numbers and symbols on paper simply because no one has taught them how to visualize and interpret them in a real world situation. They also don't realize that they have plethora of resources and tools available to them to help them, yet they rarely utilize them. I try to give hints and clues to my students and let them obtain the right answers on their own instead of simply solving the problem for them. I believe this gives them a much better understand of the material.

Experience Summary

Having recently graduated with a Bachelor's degree, I am continuing my education to obtain my Master's degree in mathematics. Number Theory will be my focus, as I intend to get involved in the encryption field. During my senior year as undergraduate, I have worked on campus as a teacher's assistant and at home as an online tutor for UNCG's iSchool program. I have privately tutored undergraduates needing help in pre-calculus and calculus. I enjoyed helping the students and showing them some of my own tricks and ways when it comes to solving the problems.

Teaching Style

I believe that every child is capable of learning and that every child has their own style of learning. As a teacher, I believe in differentiated instruction that allows all students an equal opportunity to learn. I believe in teaching through student exploration. Once a child is able to discover a concept on their own, they are able to better understand and remember it. My approach to teaching is to expose students to practical problems. Once these problems are understood, I introduce a mathematical concept that should allow them to discover a solution to the problem. Throughout this approach, I’m always encouraging and patient. I always stress the importance of making an attempt at solving a problem, as in my favorite quote, “Without struggle, there is no progress.”

Experience Summary

During completion of my undergraduate degree in math, I always strived to achieve excellence in education and to pass on my love for learning. Throughout my college career, I’ve tutored at the undergraduate, the middle and the high school levels. Such exposure allowed me to determine the concepts students have the most difficulty in understanding, and I’m able to prepare accordingly. Upon completion of my degree, I accepted an analyst position with an HR Consulting firm. During these four years, I gained vital experience that allows me to transfer mathematical concepts into real world examples. Such experience has proven to be critical in helping students visualize practical examples of what they learn. I have since left the Consulting firm and entered into teaching. I’m finally doing what I enjoy the most, teaching and passing on a love for learning.

Teaching Style

I love to teach children mathematics. Many students are afraid of mathematics since they were not given the right approach towards the subject. The key is to be strong in the fundamentals and add a little bit of practice.

Experience Summary

I am a double graduate in science subjects. I myself am a student and I always like to learn. I am always in a teaching environment. Recently I was involved in research in physics. This is helping me to develop a more scientific approach. I have been tutoring for 4 years.

Teaching Style

My teaching style has been, for the most part, dictated by student response. I am comfortable teaching in a traditional lecture format, in a format that uses a cooperative learning approach exclusively, or in a hybrid format. The goal is for effective learning to take place, and I believe my strongest quality is to be able to adapt in such a way that best helps students reach their academic goals.

Experience Summary

For eight years, I taught freshman and sophomore-level mathematics courses at Arizona State University. These courses included College Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Finite Mathematics, and Elementary Mathematics Theory. Additionally, I have tutored students in these courses both in the Mathematics Department Tutor Center, and on my own personal time.

Teaching Style

The desire to learn is one of the most important things anyone can learn. Whether it be a child seeing science for their first time, or an college adult ready to tackle the real world. I believe everyone is capable of discovering their true abilities sometimes they just need a bit of a nudge to help them find it. I like to use tutoring to help them determine how they learn. While I may employ a method of how to solve a problem, everyone learns differently. Some people are more audio learners while others require visual aides. My hope is to help them discover how they learn so they can maximize their own potential.

Experience Summary

I am simulation programmer with a passion for mathematics and physics. My desire educate myself further has driven me to explore the cutting edge of simulation technology through the physics of game design. My immense expertise in higher level math has given me a deeper appreciation for continued education. As a tutor I have helped others to share this appreciation since I was 16. In the past I have tutored a variety of subjects which include Calculus, Discrete Mathematics, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Mechanical Physics, Electromagnetics. Additionally I have assisted students with programming courses related to C++, C# and Java, Algorithms and Data Structures, and Artificial Intelligence.

Teaching Style

Much of my job includes mentoring new employees. Although I enjoy working with adults, I find it much more interesting to work with younger people. I would like the opportunity to tutor another student who is struggling with math. I have found that most students I have helped just needed some individual attention, and a safe place to ask questions that they would not ask in the classroom setting.

Experience Summary

I have worked in the Computer Science field since 1985 when I first started working for the US Space Program. During that time, I earned my BS and MS degrees, and am currently working on the Doctorate in Business with Applied Computer Science. During the last four years, I have tutored a student in mathematics, ranging from basic Algebra to College Calculus. During that time, the student received all A's. Since this student is moving on to a University out of the area, I will no longer be working with him; therefore I am looking forward to helping other students.

Calculus Tutors

Calculus Tutors

Does just the mention of Calculus make you start to shake? Do differential equations, multiple integrals, exponentials and logarithms make your eyes go crossed? No worries! Contact us to place an expert calculus tutor with you or your student today. Don’t wait to see grades drop to get help in one of the toughest math classes there is. Hiring a calculus tutor can save your grade, your GPA, and your sanity. We can provide a tutor to help in any of the following areas of calculus:

Calculus I - You can expect to learn about: limits, continuity, derivatives of algebraic and transcendental functions, including applications, basic properties of integration as well as techniques of integration and applications.

Calculus II - You can expect to learn about: review of differentiation, techniques of integration, and applications of the definite integral, parametric equations and polar coordinates, Taylor's theorem, sequences, series, power series, complex arithmetic, and an introduction to multivariable calculus.

Calculus III - You can expect to learn about: Vector algebra and geometry, linear maps and matrices, calculus of vector valued functions, derivatives of functions of several variables, multiple integrals, and vector fields and line integrals.

Calculus for Science and Engineering I - You can expect to learn about: Functions, analytic geometry of lines and polynomials, limits, derivatives of algebraic and trigonometric functions; definite integral, anti-derivatives, fundamental theorem of calculus, and change of variables.

Calculus for Science and Engineering II - You can expect to learn about: Exponentials and logarithms, growth and decay, inverse trigonometric functions, related rates, basic techniques of integration, area and volume, polar coordinates, parametric equations, as well as Taylor polynomials and Taylor's theorem.

Business Calculus I - You can expect to learn about: one-variable calculus and some multivariable calculus, its applications in business and economics, and is intended to give business students the appropriate conceptual and computational mathematical background for future study in business.

Peers and study groups are great if the student simply needs to review or study for a calculus test. However, if the student is struggling and needs the expertise of a professional then hiring a qualified and educated tutor specifically in calculus is what the student needs. Continuing to struggle without professional assistance will only put the student farther and farther behind. It is our job to provide the help the student needs when they need it. When you need a tutor for calculus that’s exactly what you get…a tutor that know calculus, not a study buddy.

High School Tutors

Is your high school student college bound? Does every grade count towards a scholarship or a college application? High school students are inundated with grades, sports, work, volunteering, activities, and sometimes a little old fashioned teenage fun.

My daughter worked with Chad Bemis on Calculus and it was a complete success. We think she ended up with an A in the class and we are awaiting the AP scores however she feels she got a minimum of a 3 on the AP test. This is amazing considering that when we started with Chad she had an F in the class due to so many assignments that had not been completed. Chad is a wonderful tutor! I simply cannot say enough good things about him. His style of teaching and his personality along with his technical ability make him a superior tutor. Our entire family loved Chad and looked forward to the days that he would come to the house. Thank you Advanced Learners for such great service and providing us with such a top notch tutor. I would recommend your services to anyone in need of additional help for their students. I of course would also recommend Chad as a tutor for any subject that he teaches."

We are very happy with Ronda and we would highly recommend her to anyone. Ronda has had prior teaching experience where Clay attends, and this has been helpful in that she understands how some of his teachers approach classroom objectives. Language arts is one of Clay’s toughest subjects and he’s currently carrying an ‘A’. I know it’s a long year, but it’s a great start."
