Math Help & Studying Strategies: learn to love math with an experienced tutor
I've been tutoring students since I began my Bachelor's degree, having graduated high school with an Associate's degree already under my belt. As a professional tutor, I was required to participate in professional development, and as someone who genuinely loves to teach, I still look into resources and conferences I can attend to better myself as a teacher. I've mainly tutored math courses, from middle school math to college-level courses for math majors. However, I've also tutored computer science, physics, chemistry, earth science, ACT/SAT prep, and general test-taking strategies. I enjoy tutoring in all these subjects, and always keep up to date with what my students need to know. I've tutored from 12 years old to college students, including gifted children, disabled students, and working students. I've also held many job titles, such as Teaching Assistant, Grader, Supplemental Instruction Leader, and more!
About Kiera G.

Hi, I'm Kiera! I'm currently finishing up my Master's in Applied Mathematics at Stony Brook University in New York State. In undergrad, I studied Computational Mathematics, which for me meant a lot of math courses and quite a few computer science courses. I also minored in "Language Science" (also known as Linguistics) as I had a budding interest in Natural Language Programming. Currently, I'm working with faculty in the computer science department on some NLP research. I love teaching about pure math classes, such as Discrete Math, Combinatorics, Game Theory, and more! I enjoyed taking those classes and am even more excited to pass that knowledge to other students. Most of my experience is in tutoring the "typical" math sequence -- Algebra, Precalculus, Calculus (I, II, & III), Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra. I've also taken time in my professional roles to study pedagogy, problem-solving skills, and test-taking strategies for different types of students. Here's a tip for free: most test problems don't have to be done in order, and most shouldn't! By skipping questions you don't have an immediate answer to, your brain gets to work on it in the background, and can often come up with something easier than staring at a blank page for minutes. I've tutored for math-related sections of the SAT and ACT, giving specific testing advice for those, and helping students find tricks to solving these problems quickly. I've even helped students advocate for themselves in situations where the instructor was being unfair/not compliant with college-specific accommodations. I believe math is a beautiful subject with a wide variety of topics that people usually don't see. Let me help you learn to love math, or at least allow you to feel neutral about it.
