Math Center Tutors

Compiled by Lisa Gerardy, Writing Center Specialist

 

The Math Center is the second oldest center in the Academic Support Center.  It was started by Dr. John Eads in 2006.  Since then, the Math Center has added many resources and services.  In addition to meeting students in Adobe Connect for live tutoring sessions, math tutors also review projects, hold workshops, give video examples of math problems, and create resources. Here are a few of our wonderful math tutors.

Four years

Why do you tutor, or what is your favorite thing about tutoring?

I enjoy tutoring to help students in their study of math. Sometimes we get the “aha” moment while at other times we just get them through an assignment or project. I also tutor to keep my teaching/tutoring skills sharp.

Why do you tutor, or what is your favorite thing about tutoring?

Sometimes, math textbooks are not fun to read. Sometimes, videos do not cover everything. Sometimes, PowerPoint presentations miss several steps on how the answers are obtained. So, a student may need to talk to someone who can explain this “foreign” language. That is where Tutor Samuel steps in.

Why do you tutor, or what is your favorite thing about tutoring?

The most rewarding experience of being a tutor is that we get to explore the issues from the bottom up. This is how the student processed the information and is now putting it into practice. Think of it like bouncing a ball. Our job is to make sure after the ball hits the pavement; it goes right back to hand!

Why do you tutor, or what is your favorite thing about tutoring?

I tutor because it gives me a great opportunity to teach, which I love to do. In particular, I enjoy tutoring because it allows me to target individual student needs, while it keeps me on my toes.

Why do you tutor, or what is your favorite thing about tutoring?

I  enjoy the challenge.  I never know what math topic will be asked next.
It’s always great to hear students say, “Oh, of course that was my error” after pointing out a mistake; or, “Wow, now I understand” after explaining a topic.
