Welcome to my tutoring service!
For those of you that don’t know who I am just yet, my name is Jayel Taylor. As of the May 18, 2016, I will have graduated from high school. In addition to this, I took the AP Calculus BC exam my junior year, and got a 5. I also have a 35 on the ACT.
I’m here to serve a purpose on this planet, and I’m a firm believer in that as well. Currently, I believe that one of my major purposes is that I have to provide quality tutoring to those who need it most, which is why this page exists. I love to tutor people. Math has always been my favorite subject in school, so performing excellently has never been a huge problem for me. But I do know that not everyone can do it with the same ease that I can, which is why I started this tutoring service. I realized that I have a true gift in mathematics and in teaching, and I would really like to put that ability to use. This also applies to the “New Math” that students are learning in school that seems to confuse everyone.
There are three pillars upon which true understanding is formed:
- Knowledge: Actually knowing what you are learning is very important. Involves literally no beyond thinking but it does require an ability to grasp math concepts
- Learning: Once you know what you are learning, the next step to actually learn the topic. Learning doesn’t just mean how to solve the problem, but what it is good for, and when you would apply similar methods elsewhere
- Intuition: After learning, there is always more to do with that knowledge. This is the intuition phase of learning, and it is indefinite. It involves understanding the topic so well that you can link it to other things besides its designated usage.
The price for my tutoring is $15/hour. On the form below, please input your Skype Username into the comments section.
