Zach L.

I am currently a Math Major at Portland State University. My plans after graduation include acquiring a PH.D in the theoretical field of mathematics and teaching at a university level. I enjoy teaching immensely and this has been the only field that I have felt enough attachment to, to pursue in earnest. I am currently the lead instructor at a tutoring facility focused on k-12 mathematics. I have held this position for just over a year and in the mean time maintained both college and high school private clientele in Calculus, College Algebra, Precalculus, and a few other subjects as well. I have enjoyed the positions and am currently seeking more clients in the upper math levels as I transition towards my college teaching career. My style of teaching is geared toward a patient approach. I like to see what my student is comfortable with and any sort of struggles or topics that need more time/attention. Traditionally, I give a basis of concepts that will be covered for a particular session, or set of sessions, and I ask questions along the way to make sure that the student understands the ideas before pursuing the exercises. I have found that many students will try to plunge directly into the exercise, following examples that they have seen and replicating the process onto their piece of paper. I think that learning should be more than punching numbers into a calculator, which is why I am dedicated to the understanding of the process in addition to the completion of the exercises. Fun Facts: I enjoy my life as a student at Portland State University. The Pacific Northwest is my home and I enjoy hiking, running, and exploring through the area. I also enjoy reading and the every day down to Earth things such as biking, vacationing, and going out to movies with friends and family. I am open minded and enjoy hearing new ideas and trying new activities.

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
