I am a great tutor because I believe every student can be successful. My philosophy is that of a coach or mentor. I help students become the best they can through encouragement.
I am also a great tutor because of my vast knowledge of mathematics and experience teaching and tutoring math. I have been teaching and tutoring math for all of my life beginning at the Math Lab when I was an undergrad. Since then I have taught at Tidewater Community College and Bayside HS, all levels of math from Algebra I through Calculus and Differential Equations.
My students at Bayside HS passed the SOL's at a rate of 96% and I have high success rates in my courses at Tidewater Community College. I teach using all modalities; in class, hybrid, and online but I prefer teaching online. I also hold online office hours so I am very familiar with tutoring using web conferencing.
