Hello and welcome!
I am a graduate student with a bachelor's in Cognitive Science, a mesh of biology, mathematics, computer science and psychology. I have learnt about how people learn and, over the past two years, put that knowledge into practice as a tutor. Helping students to understand the fundamental concepts of reading, writing, and problem solving, with elementary mathematics through to algebra 2, I enjoy seeing students really get into the material and succeed.
Recently, I have been a tutor in the Lindamood-Bell writing and reading comprehension program, a program that has a proven record of success teaching students, who struggle with reading comprehension, to read above grade level. I have experience teaching winning strategies at the elementary and middle school level in math, writing and reading to students with disabilities.
Lastly, people are often discouraged by math, and topics like algebra can be scary for students. I understand when they think "I'm no good at math" its not because they can't do it, but because they haven't been given the individual attention they need to learn. I can teach those students rules and strategies for solving real life problems and make math, if not fun, then at least a breeze by comparison.
