I believe in a logical but fun approach to tutoring. I try to design plans that reinforce subjects in multiple ways, to encourage memorization and ensure that students don't get bored. This approach befits both the teacher and the student.
I have extensive experience tutoring students in mathematics, and I have tutored in science as well. I have also tutored unofficially on test-prep with students in my area.
