"I also have a strong background in Mathematics and have tutored several students as high as Algebra II. The reason I love tutoring is that I can individualize the learning for each person I tutor based on their needs and strengths. I do this by finding out how the people I am tutoring learn best and use that information to tailor the tutoring sessions to their strengths. At the same time, I will help them overcome their weaknesses in order to make it easier for them to adapt in a classroom setting."
