Lesson Details

Basic Math

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
I am a chemical engineer and as an engineer, you can never ignore maths because Mathematics is the language of physical science and engineering, Mathematics is more than tool for solving problems; mathematics courses can develop intellectual maturity. Mathematics is a part of everyone's life. Every student should experience the thrill of mathematical discovery. Every teacher can appreciate the elegance of a great mathematical insight.I also offer tutoring services in Prealgebra, Algebra 1;2, Pre calculus, Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry.My experience in tutoring Maths have led me to compile my own practice sheets in each topic that has helped the students in so many years. My teaching philosophy is straightforward: teach your students as you would want to be taught - with enthusiasm, and with a passion for the subject combined with respect and understanding for the students. When teaching maths I make sure that the basics are grasped well because this is the only subject that needs a strong basic foundation and as you know "
You can't build a great building on a weak foundation"!

I have been tutoring for over 8 years now, My teaching philosophy is straightforward: teach your students as you would want to be taught - with enthusiasm, and with a passion for the subject combined with respect and understanding for the student. Chemistry and maths is a subject that I have studied, practiced, taught and enjoyed over the last 8 years Effective teaching involves time, dedication, patience, understanding, firmness, and a sense of humor. True learning incorporates active participation by the student, inside as well as outside the classroom.

Guiding students through the maze of chemical symbols, equations and concepts can only be accomplished by giving the students the means and opportunity to take charge of their own learning reinforced by an appropriate reward system. My main focus is to teach in a way that will reach all my students. I enjoy the challenge of working not only with different learning styles, but very different backgrounds, from honors students to students who have taken the course unsuccessfully before. Chemistry is difficult for most students, therefore they must be able to make mistakes, learn from them, and in the end be rewarded for their efforts and the chemical knowledge they acquired.
For a truly successful learning community, the importance of open two-way communication is emphasized in my class.This only happens if there is mutual respect.

My philosophy inextricably entwines my enthusiasm and passion for the subject of chemistry and maths with my respect and high regard for all students irrespective of their grades. It is particularly rewarding when students become majors or minors because of my class, which happens on occasion, or go on into professional school.

Alisha is extremely well-informed and an expert in Organic Chemistry. She knows exactly what she is talking about and, more importantly, *understands* it and can articulate the concepts in a way that is easy to comprehend. She is patient with me and is willing to go slowly on practice problems so I can fully grasp the concepts and theory. I would hire Alisha again in a heartbeat.
