Matthew R. (Ft. Campbell High School)
How did you hear about Tutor.com for U.S. Military Families?
I heard about Tutor.com from my high school ( Fort Campbell High) and was very grateful for the free tutoring program that you offer to military kids.
What classes do you use the service for for?
I use Tutor.com for my math classes in school and love how my tutors EXPLAIN the concepts instead of just spitting out answers.
What would you tell other students about Tutor.com?
I would, and have been, telling my friends to use Tutor.com because it is such a resourceful tool.
What is your favorite subject to tutor?
All the subjects are really similar to me, that’s why I like them all. I sometimes feel working with young children is the best, sometimes I like to work with high grades of Algebra and Trigonometry students which come up with tricky problems.
What was your favorite subject in school?
When I was at school I loved all subjects involving numbers such as Math , Physics, Chemistry.
What is your favorite study/homework tip?
I always recommend the students to read the problem, just write a brief of the given information and then think about simple steps, not staying looking at a whole problem thinking “what do I do with all this?”
What is your favorite thing about tutoring?
I think my favorite thing about tutoring is the way I feel when the students really understand. That moment when I say “Any other problem you need help on? ” and they respond, “No thanks, now I can solve them by my own”.
