...some students, the actual problem is not the subject/curriculum, but that they need help with time management and study skills. I try to teach students how to learn better and faster by managing their time efficiently and by organizing how they study. Since math is very cumulative, I always like to spend some time to review the prior and old material to fill in the gaps and then teach the new material. Since July 1992,...

I've spent lots of time in academia, either as a student, teacher, or staffer, and would love to help you achieve your goals through tutoring. In each meeting with students, my goal is to try to undercover and describe the general ideas lurking underneath test questions. Once students learn to recognize these ideas and understand them, it's like a key that undoes the lock for future test questions, no matter how trickily they're written.

As long as she felt grounded enough to access her innate understanding of the world around us, she progressed. Later on, my extensive experience in the classroom as a Jumpstart Corps Member taught me to adapt my teaching style to each childs needs. While...
