Experiences Middle School And High School Math Tutor
Hi I'm Sidney! I graduated with honors from Eckerd College with a Bachelor's degree in marine science with minors in chemistry and mathematics. While biology has always been the field I wanted to eventually work in, math has always been my favorite subject in school. I appreciate the orderliness and logical flow of the subject. What made it even more enjoyable were several fantastic math teachers I was fortunate enough to learn from. They were consistently patient with questions, flexible with their teaching styles, and most of all, encouraging when the problems got tough. By becoming a tutor, I hope to emulate my teachers by supporting and motivating students' to improve their mathematical abilities.
I worked as a teaching and lab assistant in chemistry and biology classes throughout my time in college and worked during my senior year as a college level math tutor. Doing this gave me great insight as to the different ways people think about math, where and why students get stuck, and how I can help as their tutor. I can base my instruction off of lesson plans, books, or homework in whatever way is best for the student and welcome any suggestions from students or parents so that the tutoring can be as effective as possible.
My goal is to assist those that I tutor so that they are able to comprehend their material correctly and confidently, and also in a way that makes sense for them as an individual. I can be reached easily any day of the week and will respond as soon as possible. Please message me if you have any questions at all or to set up a lesson!
