I have a common sense approach to tutoring that allows me to be able to teach many different age levels. I like to use my in-depth knowledge of math and break it down in a way that makes sense to you. Knowing that every student learns differently, allows me to teach to a student's strengths. For instance, if you are a musical learner, we might find a song that can help you become more fluent with your multiplication facts! If you are a hands on learner, I might set up a pretend store to teach you how to make change! I find that teaching something multiple times and in multiple ways allows my students to really grasp the underlying concepts behind even the most difficult problems before moving on. I also think that along with the creative side of learning, we have to be sure to teach our children how to think! It sounds so simple and you might be saying, "Of course, I know how to think!" Well, when you are given a word problem, do you know what comes to mind? Are you aware of the questions you are asking yourself and how you are planning to solve the problem? I will be sure to strengthen these thinking skills, which are very important in test taking. Lastly, I believe it is important to always have a positive attitude as a teacher and get excited about the subject matter! I am always excited about teaching and the material I teach! I am a lifelong learner and, ultimately, my hope is to spread that love of learning to each and every one of my students!
