Clark R. – Tutor in Ann Arbor, MI (48104)
My approach to tutoring is to first determine where weaknesses in understanding exist, then to find ways to strengthen the student in those areas. Learning styles vary among students, so whenever possible, I try to match my tutoring methods to each student’s strongest learning style. For example, one student may learn best by rote memorization and repetition drills. Another may thrive with analogies and mnemonics. A third student may need derivations from first principles or real life applica…
Caroline T. from Ann Arbor, MI Clark has worked with our son for several weeks now and it's been a very rewarding experience. He makes sure that our son not only can sound out and read the words, but that he understands the meaning and brings different and interesting materials to work with each week. Our son likes him and we have been quite pleased!
Aimee B. from Brighton, MI We are so happy we contacted Clark as a Chemistry tutor for our son. He is AMAZING. He has a Master's Degree in Chemical Engineering and is patient, thorough and a wonderful teacher. My son has told me that Clark is much "smarter" than his own teacher. Clark sits with him, goes over the problems with him and teaches him how to solve the equations for himself - For example "The first thing I did was to derive a set of equations from these two formulas to find any quantity from any other. This was done by solving each formula for ?, then equating them. I left this set of equations with him. When asked to solve this type of problem in the future, all he needs to do is look up on the list of equations to find which formula has the desired quantity by itself in terms of the given quantities." Isn't he amazing? We are so happy with Clark, our tutor, and we know that our son's grades will improve dramatically due to his help. Thank you WyzAnt for having such an outstanding, patient tutor on your staff.
Heather M. from Canton, MI Clark succeeded in making what was becoming an impossible subject for my son something that could be learned and understood. He took as much time as was needed to explain to Josh the lessons that had given in school and helped him to come to the right answers. Thank you very much.
