An EZMath tutor isn't just is not a detached entity. We guarantee and live a set of guidelines as we become your math sherpas. In any EZMath tutoring session, you as a learner will be the focus of the meeting. Your questions will be heard--and answered--together on a journey tailored specifically for you. We will build a safe learning environment together, enabling you to flourish to your fullest potential. We will equip you with the tools to tackle any problem you face in and beyond an EZMath tutoring session. We--tutor and tutee--will make math as EZasAbC.
Back in early 2020, Chadwick's VR Club had to stop meeting--indefinitely--thanks to the pandemic. Instead, we decided to dedicate our time to tutoring others! We all love math and can't wait to spread our knowledge to everyone we can!
As a student, whenever I've tried to find help for math on my own, I've never been able to find what I need: either the articles are too elementary or written for the college level. Why is there no in-between? That's why we, Ethan, Zak, Alex, and Cooper (hence the EZasAbC), took it upon ourselves to make all levels of math as EZasAbC to understand. Have fun and start learning with us!
Not only do we offer online tutoring based in Palos Verdes (via Discord and Zoom), but we also will be posting guides as we go, starting with Algebra and working up! We are so excited to have you all on this journey with us.
If you have any ideas to improve the guides, or if you even have a guide of your own, please reach out to us and we will take a look!
