I am a graduate professional engineer fresh from twenty years of military service and another twenty in industry. Math has always been my favorite subject and I have often been asked to explain it to others.
My tutoring approach begins with finding common ground with my client. We agree on what we both understand about the matter at hand. We take the time necessary to discuss the definitions of the terms we use and the principles of the subject area in which we're working. We work together through as many specific questions and problems as necessary to make the client comfortable enough to work without me. The best tutor is the one who works to make his help unnecessary.
I am patient, engaging and friendly. If a given approach does not result in success, then I will try another and yet another so that understanding is achieved. My job isn't done until the client understands the material. Whatever it takes.
