Greetings, I have been tutoring math at all levels for years since my Undergraduate graduation. I graduated with a degree in Film after majoring in computer programming and Education. I am a visual thinker so I have a way of explaining math and clarifying concepts not just expediently, but so that the student remembers them firmly in time for tests and major exams. I have worked with students of all abilities, and am known for my patience and persistence in providing a student with ownership over their roadblocks in mathematics. Some of my students have been dyslexic, some have had confidence issues, some had mental obstacles that historically kept them from an optimal level of motivation in math, yet being able to turn them around and see A's as the final result always keeps me returning to this line of work.
It is not uncommon to fall behind in a class or just need to brush up on a few sections that tend to cause you errors. The cascade effect of small failures that just seem to keep compiling can be overwhelming. My job is to intercept the problem points, and identify first where you are strong, then work from that outward, building a framework that is well-mapped and gives you an understanding of how to work within your means, and how to excel beyond them. Countless families over the years have expressed satisfaction with my methods, my humor, patience, and panache about handling their world of quantitative skill building. Many of the foundational problems in math derive from a disjunction between the visual narrative of concepts and the developed vocabulary an individual has to speak on that visual. My work aims to build your vocabulary from the simplest to most complex levels, reduce all ambiguities, ensuring that your path to success on tests is akin to drawing an intricate, logical, coherent picture from bottom to top. With this in mind, looking forward to working with you and all challenges ahead!
