Russell's Bio & Tutoring Experience
I have previously tutored high school geometry and basic college chemistry. Both were 1 or 2 person sessions usually lasting about an hour. I was recommended to the mother of the two girls that I tutored in geometry by one of my professors because I am both intelligent and personable. I try to use my first session to establish how students learn as an individual. For example, does repetition of example after example benefit them the most, or is it better to review the content and make sure that there is a firm understanding of the material. I have a guaranteed knowledge of all high school and lower math and science courses including post-secondary and Advanced Placement (except anatomy). I am willing to assist students in other sections (History, Psychology, etc...), however in this case my guarantee is only to be able to provide them with the tools to learn, such as study techniques, not to actually be able to teach the material itself. Either way, I actively learn with the students, preferring to know future material to be covered in advance so that I can review it myself and make sure they are learning everything that they need to succeed. I prefer to do my tutoring either at my address or on the Akron campus either at Bierce Library or the student union, depending on the preference of the student.
