I have been tutoring mathematics since I was in high school. Over almost two decades of experience in education, I've refined my methods of demonstrating mathematical concepts and connections to real life experiences. In alignment with the new common core standards, I've tutored mathematics to students in elementary, junior, and high school. What makes me a great tutor is my background in mathematics coupled with a welcoming and very patient personality. I work hard to make sure my students feel comfortable to ask questions, let me know when they are not understanding, and to make it clear that even I don't know all the answers so they I invite them to find my mistakes and witness how I think through problems and arrive at answers. My goal for my students is to help them develop the skills they will need to become stronger learners, especially perseverance and patience in the process of working through tasks.
