Award-Winning Elementary Math Tutors in Houston, TX
Alex "... Before this I attended the University of Texas at Austin where I received my Bachelor's degrees in Geography and Humanities. Having been exposed to an eclectic background of liberal arts and hard science I am comfortable tutoring across a broad range of subjects and encourage students to see the inherent connections between their work and real-world applications. Despite my technical background, I am a person who would much rather contemplate the words in a good book rather than the letters of a differential equation. However, my interest in studying the natural world has caused me to suffer through more math classes than I care to count. As a result, I am well-equipped to help 'math-shy' students understand, appreciate, and flourish in a subject that they may have previously disliked. I believe in forging a relationship between the student and the subject matter with the idea being able to answer the question "when will I ever need to know this?" is the first step to understanding. Currently, I live in Houston with my bride, Nathalie, and our great big black lab, affectionately know as "The Bear"..."

Kate "... I have tutored in standardized test preparation, time management, history, geography, English, writing, and all elementary school subjects. Since eleventh grade, when I taught some neighborhood kids how to write essays and craft short stories, I have loved the one-on-one element of tutoring because I have the chance to really get to know a student, and then based on the student's learning style, teach them how to succeed. It's so much fun to build relationships with students and walk with them through the process until they realize: I can do this! I have always love facilitating learning experiences..."
