I love math and love showing others how it works. I tutored students of all ages, elementary, middle and high school while I was in college in subjects as diverse as math, calculus and physics. I taught computer programming at a technical college for two years and now work full-time as a software programmer. I have a undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Electrical Engineering.
Most of the students who came to me for help with Math and other subjects were struggling with the subjects in their classes. The common complaint was that the teacher did not talk to them at "their level" or explained the concepts well enough for them to understand. I helped them with their homework and broke down tough ideas from their classes into simple concepts that they could understand. All of them showed a marked improvement in their subjects and were able to better their grades significantly, in some cases to an A.
My students' parents were very pleased with the progress their children made and some of them expected me to not only be a tutor but also be a mentor or a support person as some were going through rough times because of domestic issues in their parents' lives. I tried my best to talk to the students and provide counsel wherever possible.
