Questions and answers
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
I specialize in K-8 math, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Statistics, and Fundamental Physics. I also have vast experience in helping people of all ages.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
It's a good idea to have a class outline available, as well as the current textbook being used. If someone's grade is in danger, bringing a structured grade sheet with as much information as possible is helpful, as the necessary grades on future assignments can be determined.
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
I am working on my Electrical Engineering degree.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
Two very common misconceptions about tutoring are the rates and the qualifications for being a tutor.
Tutoring prices are all over the place. I have seen some people charge $15 an hour all the way up to $90 an hour. Many people would rather go with the $90/hr tutor because they assume that if a tutor costs more, they must be better. While that may be true in some cases, it's certainly not true all the time. There are plenty of tutors that charge between $20-$30/hr that will still provide excellent results, without breaking the bank.
During the search for a tutor, some people will seek someone with a Masters degree or even a doctorate. Again, having those degrees is a superb quality, but it doesn't necessarily reflect how good of a tutor someone is. And lest someone is seeking help in upper division or higher courses, those higher-level degrees don't always speak for much.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
Generally, the more expensive tutors have Undergraduate degrees or higher. However, the vast majority of subjects that require tutoring are far below the scope of full college degrees. There are several tutors that those who have only have high school diplomas will adequately serve your tutoring needs at a reasonable price.
While I have not finished my Undergraduate degree yet, I am still very knowledgeable in the subjects that I tutor, and my experience in them as well as tutoring them is a great advantage to you.
- What brands or products do you work with?
For my line of work, brands don't mean very much. All I need is a pencil, some blank printer paper, and possibly a textbook and a calculator (for statistics or physics). As long as it works, I'm happy.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
A couple semesters ago, I was tutoring someone in Intermediate Algebra. When he/she (for the sake of anonymity) came to me, his/her scores were somewhere in the 30's. After a few sessions, he/she took another test, and he/she received a score in the high 80's. I don't take sole responsibility for this, as this is my client's achievement, and not mine, but it felt good to have something to do with that.
- What certifications or professional affiliations do you have?
I have a High School Diploma from Moorpark High School, three years of Engineering / Mathematics / Physics classes from Moorpark College, and two years of intensive tutoring at the Learning Center at Moorpark College.
- What types of jobs are the most common?
The three most common subjects are generally Calculus, Algebra, and Statistics.
- How did you get started?
Once I started college, some of my friends were having trouble with Algebra. I started helping them out, and I realized how good it felt to aid in their success. After that, I started tutoring professionally.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
I allow customers to call me with questions outside of tutoring sessions, which is very uncommon. I am very patient and easy-going, so questions over the phone do not bother me.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
Customers should ask about availability, hourly rates, and experience in the subject, as well as experience in actually tutoring the subject.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
I would say somewhere between 20 to 30 clients every year. I do not do this full-time, so I probably have less clients then most full-time tutors.
