"Why study mathematics?" and "How will I ever understand this stuff?" are two of the most real and common questions I am asked when students, along with their parents, ask me to help. I use methods and techniques that I've perfected over the years to show the applicability and the beauty behind "the beast" known as mathematics...and my students get it.
I break down and re-assemble the processes of math so that they can be easily applied to corresponding situations, especially "word" problems. My students love the results they get, and their understanding and test scores always go up.
My favorite math areas to tutor include algebra, geometry, trigonometry, elementary statistics and probability, precalculus, and calculus through differential equations.
My diligent efforts earned me the 2007 California League of High Schools Educator of the Year award along with many student submissions of my name to Who's Who Among America's Teachers for four consecutive years.
