Hello! I TA'ed a few computer science classes at MIT, and I've also been teaching math for 1+ years—mostly competitive math (AMC, MATHCOUNTS, etc.) but some high school math too. Excited to tutor at Schoolhouse! 😀

Thank you for the explanation! :) I really liked how you simplified the problem to something that can be easily solved without using fancy trig ratios!

Learner · 7 mo. ago

Yes, there is evidence of this through the tutor answering questions. For example, when the learner asked about velocity, you did an amazing job of drawing a rough sketch and explaining it the best you could.

Thank you so much! The session ran very smoothly and I learned a lot about geometric sequences. Looking forward to the next session!!

Learner · 9 mo. ago

I liked how you gave examples to the learner in order to discuss velocity, while providing different ways that they might see a problem. You were also clear about where you could help out or what you know relevant to the learner's doubts.
