Lamar ...I have experience working with students in math ranging from learning to count all the way to Calculus. I enjoy helping a student gain confidence and find concept easy after previously finding it difficult. In my tutoring style I incorporate a lot of examples to help correlate the math concepts to everyday life.... I like to make teaching fun, and I try to use examples based on interests. I enjoy when a student comes to me when they don't understand, and they leave confident.

Brittany ...evaluating student's needs as well as teacher expectations and testing styles to ensure that the student not only learns the information but can reproduce it successfully in the format necessary for the class. Above all, I am creative and great at listening and communicating, so I can adapt my style to your needs.... My teaching philosophy begins with listening. It is important to me to understand what my students need, even if they can't tell me explicitly. While I have plenty of lesson plans from years of experience, education is best when it is adaptable. Each time I use an example or edit an assignment, I take note of which things work (or don't) for my student, so our time becomes more productive, and my tutoring more tailored to the student with each session. I spend time coming up with examples and exercises that are creative, interesting, and relevant to my student's lives. If you ask me, I can teach you tricks to help you memorize a ton of facts for a test, but I'd rather help you process and learn the material so you can retain it and use it for years to come.

Kim I am able to determine what obstacles are preventing a student from grasping a concept, and create different means of overcoming those obstacles. Creating a partnership with the student and understanding what he or she needs to overcome is what makes me a great tutor. ... I would talk with the student and/or his or her parents to learn what each hopes to achieve from the tutoring sessions. I would ask what they've tried, what they liked, and what they didn't about their previous efforts. Then I would work hard to provide a good deal of value in that first lesson so that we can continue to work together.
