I recently received a PhD in bioengineering from Rice University. While in graduate school, I worked as a private tutor to earn extra income. Since graduating, I have continued to tutor several students; I tutored one such student throughout his entire high school career and over the summer since he has gone to college. I also served as a teaching assistant for five semesters during graduate school and my undergraduate education at Duke University.
I believe that students today rely too much on technology to assist them with homework. As a result, many students do not know how to do simple mental math. I never allow my students to use a calculator for basic math and I focus on reinforcing such basics while providing them with a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.
