This way, they can continue to learn at an advanced level long after they no longer require the service of a tutor. ."

I use both analytical as well as graphical methods or a combination of the two as needed to cater to each student. Having both an Engineering and Architecture background, I am able to explain difficult concepts to either a left or right-brained student, verbally or with visual representations." ...

" Part of the fun about tutoring is that it allows me to break down and analyze the mathematical concepts that may otherwise be overlooked. The other part of tutoring I really enjoy; seeing the students I help gain a significantly better understanding of the math and earn much better grades. My approach to tutoring is one of patience. Learning cannot be rushed, and a student who feels stressed will have a more difficult time learning."
