Qualifications & Experience

Does your math instructor not explain things in enough detail for you to understand? Do you have difficulty comprehending math concepts? I am a professional mathematics instructor and have been trained in the most effective techniques for teaching math. I tailor my instruction specifically to your needs and making the most difficult math topics easy to grasp. My focus is giving you the knowledge you need to do the homework problems yourself. I can teach you the necessary skill set to help you pass your math courses. I am also experienced in preparing students for various tests, such as the PSAT/NMSQT, SAT, ACT, etc.

I have found that most students are perfectly capable of learning math. A big problem that I see is a lack of self confidence in math. My tutoring sessions are designed to enhance the students self confidence in a calm, non-threatening environment. Student progress is rewarded with gentle encouragement. Students are never criticized or reprimanded for asking questions or showing a lack of understanding. In fact, questions are encouraged, and I view mistakes as a learning opportunity. Nothing pleases me more than watching the light bulb switch on when a student finally grasps a concept they thought was incomprehensible.

I am offering professional tutoring services in mathematics, in all topics including basic arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus to students of any age. I am a college instructor in mathematics and have a master's degree in math. I have been teaching and tutoring students in a wide variety of math classes at the college level for more than 25 years. I have consistently gotten excellent ratings from both students and peers on my teaching style.

I have been trained in strategic tutoring technique. Traditional tutoring styles only provide assistance on specific assignments assigned by their teacher as homework. Strategic tutoring teaches the student how to master the learning strategies necessary for the particular subject, thus, in time, eliminating the need for a tutor.

I can travel to your home to help with homework, studying for exams, etc.

Thanks!
