Rick M.

I am an Aerospace Engineering student at San Jose State University planning to graduate in spring of 2015. Currently I am a support officer for the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) at San Jose State University. My dream is to become a project manager for space systems developed at the NASA Ames Research Center. I am also an Eagle Scout. Although I do not have any official tutoring experience, I do have a little brother that I teach. If my brother needs help with a homework question I do my best to sit down and help him work it out. If I have learned anything from tutoring my brother it's that I need to be patient with him. I'm going to take a page out of the Boy Scout hand book to answer this question. The back bone of my teaching method is something called the Teaching EDGE. EDGE stands for Explain, Demonstrate, Guide, and Enable. First, I explain to give the student an idea of what to do. Then I demonstrate to give the student an example. After, I guide the student so they can come to an answer easily. Lastly, I enable the student allowing them to do a problem one their own. The Teaching EDGE is the outline I follow, but I feel it is just as important to keep the experience fun. Like with my brother, I think it is important to be patient and encouraging, never knocking a student down.Fun Facts: I am definitely the type of person that does not like to sit around all day. I'm extremely active and I love being outdoors. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my dose of video games. However, I also love camping, hiking, and cycling. Recently I have been trying to take up guitar as well. One of my biggest muses is music, specifically Rock n' Roll.

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
