My favorite part of tutoring is observing the progression of a student. One of the most satisfying and fascinating things for me, is seeing when a student begins to really understand the simple basics of the subject in a way that makes the material feel less like math and more like common sense. And then watching them learn to apply that to a broad range of problems they can think through on their own. So it's no longer understanding just how to plug numbers into a formula. But understanding why that formula makes sense at a basic level. So when they come to problems that are unfamiliar to them, they are able to just think their way through it.
Learners rarely get there right away. And sometimes for their personal goals and what's required, you don't need that level of understanding. But it's sort of a shoot for the sun and still reach the moon approach. Even if you don't get to that point during our sessions, that's the end goal. And the exercise of trying to get there tends to be valuable in itself. The approach and mechanics you pick up along the way should help do well in your class. At another level, that same approach includes learning how to learn and think through math problems in general. So that in future math or mathoriented courses, you can reflect on the skills you picked prior to work your way through new types of math and problems that are not as familiar to you.
I'm someone who excelled in writing and music in high school, and did as little math as possible then. I went on to get a business undergrad degree, and over the course of a few internships, took an interest in the power and transparency of finance and numbers. That led me to pursue a masters" less...
