"I have tutored students in a variety of subjects but have most frequently tutored in math. In my spare time in college, I was also known to help out my peers in various subjects, including math, accounting and essay composition. I love breaking down topics for the students and helping them understand concepts on a basic level and building up from that.

"My tutoring philosophy is not only to help students solve a problem, but also to help them understand the thought process of how a certain method is chosen to solve a problem. Higher levels of math and science are built based on their fundamental concepts.

"I learned more of the same from my year as an SAT instructor for a major test prep company, my semester as an aide to an 8th grade algebra teacher, and my six months as a volunteer literacy tutor for READ San Diego. I have had two years of training in tutoring and presenting material effectively. It is a common mistake of tutors to simply lecture rather than explain and interact. That is something you need not fear from me. I am a big fan of individual one-on-one tutoring, since a student's individual needs can often be overlooked in a classroom setting." ...

It's therefore always important to have a solid grasp of the basics - to understand the previous steps - before learning each new topic."
