Warm and engaging Graduate Mathematics (A average) student offering Mathematics tuition up to University Level and Physics tuition up to NCEA Level 3

Methodology

I like to find a teaching style that works best for the student I am working with. Below are two of my skills which I always employ.

Explaining: I have great tactics when it comes to breaking down a Mathematics/Physics problem into a way that makes the student feel more engaged with the language. For example, many high school students get the notation of a function pushed onto them while they are learning Calculus, but they often are unsure what the notation “y=f (x)” actually means, often confusing it to mean multiplication of some variable f by some variable x. I can break this idea down by saying “y is something you want to produce, and f() is what you do to x in order to produce y. For example, f(x)=x squared is a way of saying I have a machine f() which turns 1 into 1, 2 into 4, 3 into 9 etc.”

Reading between the lines: When checking a student’s understanding of a concept, I often find that what is making it hard for them to understand the concept is that they don’t intuitively understand something that they’ve learnt previously. For example, when I am working with a student on simplifying exponential expressions, I often pick up that the reason they don’t understand exponent rules is that they don’t grasp that exponents are something with a much deeper meaning than repeated multiplication. I then help them understand that exponents are a mathematical way of describing something that grows in nature in a continuous multiplicative way (e.g the more bacteria there are in a dish, the faster the population will grow). Then I will show how we can describe that using a mathematical formula, and show how all the exponent rules should naturally follow from the idea of exponents representing something that grows continuously.
