I have taught Algebra 2B and Geometry A during summer school in LAUSD high schools, and hold a BA in Mathematics and a BA in Communications from Rowan College of New Jersey, as well as an MFA in Theatre from Sarah Lawrence College.
My students have often stated I break down the subject matter for them so easily, whereas before they just didn't understand. I'm a fun teacher as well as clear and patient, so most students of all academic levels feel extremely comfortable in my presence, which is important, especially those in need of extra help.
I sometimes feel it's a good idea to record the student explaining the subject of interest on video tape, which may be fun for them, and simultaneously instill a sense of confidence with regards to their understanding of the material. We could upload the videos to your computer if you have one accessible.
