Current college senior in the Houston area offering online mathematics, economics, and social studies lessons

Methodology

I am currently a senior at Rice University studying Mathematical Economic Analysis and Political Science. I can teach all math levels (including college calculus), micro and macroeconomics, and U.S. government. The structure of my lessons typically include a brief introduction and outline of the topic followed by student-led input, whether that is through practice problems, questions, or discussion. I believe that the best learning is done when students are able to work with the material in a more hands-on manner.

Experience

I have been a tutor for the past three years in the Houston area. I have worked with over 30 students, ranging from all grades (5th-12th) in a range of subjects including math (all subjects including AP Calculus), U.S. and World History, economics, and test preparation (SAT, ACT, ISEE). I also spent a summer working as a TA at Phillips Andover Academy, where I co-taught two sections of the Topics in Algebra and Pre-Calculus course. In college, I am an Academic Fellow, where I hold weekly office hours and review sessions for other university students in introductory economics and political science courses.
