I have graduated from 3 levels with honors (high school, undergraduate, and grad school). I work in accounting in my career, so I am around numbers all day. I never received less than an A- in college math all the way through Calculus. Tutoring is something I enjoy, as I did in high school for a year via Homework Hotline (a phone service meant to assist students with their homework after school). I also tutored for 2 years with Varsity tutors, primarily specializing in helping elementary-high school students with math, and also helped with ACT prep.

My methodology is to break things to the most basic level to where we can meet on common ground, and then build from there. I feel that since Math is an accumulation of understanding concepts, it's extremely important to ensure that the basics are covered first, to ensure that as we are building the skill set, that the foundation is solid. I also have taught investing, which has helped to further build the skill set of being able to effectively convey information.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My goal is to help students with a thorough and patient process; to not only instill knowledge, but also confidence.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Get to know them and see what their strengths and weaknesses are, as well as what teaching style would work best with them.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By making sure they can apply concepts from the book to real life.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

By reminding them of what they are working towards (more money).

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Taking the time out to see what part of the concept gives them the most trouble.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Have them read 3 times before they attempt to answer any questions. After they read three times, they need to be able to summarize the reading.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

To get to know them to form a bond, thereby establishing trust.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

Make them feel pumped about getting over the hump; nothing is more exciting than conquering something you thought was impossible.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

To do random practice problems outside of the ones the book offers.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

By having them do things they understand first; that way they know they are capable of doing them.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

By seeing what their strengths and weaknesses are, and what concepts they are most and least comfortable with.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

I see what type of learner the student is, and adapt the tutoring to where they can understand and utilize it.

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

Practice problems and real-world examples.
