Tutor profile: Rae C.
What writing help do you offer?
I will not write your assignments for you. However, I can help guide your thought process and also help you find academic sources, if that is what you're struggling with. If you're struggling, I can offer general approaches and suggest alternatives. Additionally, I can proofread drafts for grammar, sentence structure, readability, etc.
How will you help me actually understand algebra, rather than just telling me what to do?
There are many different approaches that can be taken to a particular concept in math. But first, I will evaluate where you're at with the foundational concepts and see if we need to start with those. If you're just struggling with the current concept, I will help you figure out which part you're not quite getting, and then I'll find a different way to explain the concept so that it actually makes sense to you. This may take several tries as I figure out your typical learning style. In the end, my goal will always be to help you understand, especially so you don't get stuck on a different problem later.
What does it mean to be a communication tutor?
It can mean many different things! I graduated with a B.S. in Communications, so I have the foundational knowledge in communication theory, particularly different types of communication. But more than likely, I can help you prepare for presentations, interviews, public speaking, etc.
needs and Rae will reply soon.
