I have experience tutoring math for a wide range of ages, including grades 1-12 as well as college level students. I am a great tutor because I can understand which areas a person is having difficulties with, and focus on those.

The math subjects I am able to tutor include Elementary Math, Geometry, Algebra, Trigonometry, all levels of Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, and Statistics.

I worked as an Instructional Aide for 3 semesters at Arizona State University in Calculus courses for Engineers. In addition to tutoring, I gave weekly quizzes on the material and kept grade records for approximately 250 students per semester.

Currently I work at a math tutoring center for grades 1-12. I really enjoy the variety of subjects and ages that I am able to tutor. It has also helped me gain experience with younger students. The center includes many different types of students; those who are behind in math, those wanting to get ahead, those needing to focus on a specific area, homework help, and test preparation.
