Hello Students and Parents,
Math has long been the source of dread and misery for countless students. Many have often given up by mistakenly buying into the false notion that they "just don't have it" or that math is "too hard" for them. But my firm belief is that anyone can learn anything given enough time, patience and inspiration. Even the most challenging subjects can be mastered by a willing learner and an able teacher.
My primary focus as a tutor is to first help struggling learners overcome the fear of math. Then, I provide the missing tools necessary to help them reach their top potential and achieve their highest academic goals.
I employ both traditional and non-traditional teaching methods that reinforce fundamental skills, explore alternate methods of problem solving and most of all, demystify difficult and abstract concepts. Many times, simply removing the anxiety from math itself has worked wonders: former failing students become top performers who are no longer terrified by tests and quizzes.
This is all accomplished in a relaxed, safe, and trusting environment where the student is not afraid to make mistakes. I encourage them to believe in their ability to conquer any problem with hard work and persistence.
Currently, I enjoy work as a certified teacher in the Vista Unified School District. I also volunteer as a tutor for disadvantaged youth in a local community intervention program in Oceanside, California. I have nearly fifteen years experience in teaching, coaching, and personal development.
I am very motivated and thoroughly committed to seeing young people succeed. I look forward to being of service or answering any questions you may have.
