Lyndia I am a graduate student of International Affairs, who loves Math and French and helping students understand their coursework. I am a great tutor because if a student does not understand something, I take the time and go over the subject again and try to explain it in a way that he/she will understand. I do not try to rush through the subject. ... During a typical first session with a student, I would get to know the student and understand how she/he learns and their problem areas, so that we might overcome them during our sessions.
