Like most students, I have gone through challenges with mathematics starting from basic education that got harder and harder (or harsher and harsher, if you may) up until graduate school. Even with my current work that uses some math, sometimes, I still struggle with difficult math problems that confront me. But with diligence, I eventually surpass them. I honestly declare myself to be an average student and learner of mathematics. Hence, I assure you that I can relate with your (or your child's) difficulties in learning math.
When I was teaching secondary and basic college mathematics, I encountered a different level of challenge. Besides confronting math itself, I had to motivate students who were used to the thought that math is difficult and not so useful and, hence just needs to be passed for compliance's sake. I am sure this is true in most cases, unless, of course, you come from those countries where they "eat, drink and breath math" (which means you don't need me). I later took on a non-teaching job in the last decade and I can assure you that a good mathematics foundation and mindset is always handy in any profession. It is this mindset that I hope to help develop in you (or your child), because once you gain this, seeking to learn becomes second-nature and you may need a tutor no more.
I look forward to imparting my best to you.
