Certified Algebra Tutor in Suffolk, VA

I am always learning, so I like to encourage others to keep learning too.... Helping students identify with what they are learning is very important to me. Helping them see that, "Yes, this does apply to me," makes all the difference.... Get to know them and their likes in school. What are they finding most difficult? How can I be help them get to the heart of the lesson?... First, I like setting a foundation for the previous lessons. Did the student understand this lesson before the next? Let's see how much they can do on their own and then step in before the lesson gets too hard.

I heard someone say that everyone starts out liking math. But they meet that one math teacher or class or even a problem that intimidates them, possibly embarrasses them. And they build a wall and find it hard to continue liking math. I want to show them an easier way to understand the concepts; I want people to like math.
