My name is Justin Collins and I am an experienced tutor. If I’ve learned anything in my last five years of tutoring, it’s that every student is different. Some students just want to get the homework done and need help facing psychological barriers with math. Other students are very curious and want to really get to the bottom of why certain formulas work the way they do.
I am a chef. A good cook always thinks about their type of customer and what they would enjoy eating the most. They will offer thoughtful suggestions for those new to the menu but will never shove the meal down the customer’s throat. A master chef will always take everything the customer says as a valuable gem that can guide the chef into offering the best meal possible for the customer.
My job as a tutor (I lied about the chef part, I just love to use analogies) is to understand my students in every way I can, and with lots of background knowledge and experience, I can serve them an experience that will be the best fit to their individual needs.
