Tutor profile: Garrett N.
How many years have you been speaking Spanish and how do you think you can better help me understand the language?
I have taken 4 years of Spanish and am currently in Spanish 4 AP. Unlike a native Spanish-speaker, I have learned the language through the school system. Therefore, I feel as if I have a stronger connection to the student and can help teach them in a more simple way.
How are you able to teach math in a way for me to understand it and eventually be able to solve problems on my own?
Math has always been my favorite class, so I have a very strong understanding of the subject. I realize how frustrating it is when a tutor/ teacher can solve a problem for you, but not exactly teach and help you understand how it's done. I believe knowledge is only gained when a student can successfully solve multiple problems on his or her own, using the skills and techniques granted to them.
What specific field do you feel you specialize in and why?
I believe that I excel in writing and have a very firm grasp of the concept. Growing up, I had many tutors myself, and with the knowledge and skills they gave me I have been able to succeed and prosper in ways I would have never thought would be possible.
