I have been tutoring math students for over 20 years. Over 95% of my student raise their grade by 2 levels!

I have many references upon request.

I am patient and concerned about the success of my students.

I have tutored students from third grade through college.

MY METHODOLOGY & TUTORING GOALS:

Mathematics can be intimidating to students who MUST take the classes but see no practical benefit to their future plans and goals.

Teaching mathematical subjects should be brought to a level that shows the student how it will be an important part of their future career, regardless of career choice. “If you cannot explain it to the student in terms that he/she understands, then you don’t have the knowledge or skills to be tutoring.”

Every student is unique and learns in a different way. Listening to the student, his/her anxieties about the subject and frustration with understanding what they are doing is the key element.

Mathematical subjects are no harder to learn than any other subject. The student needs the information told to him/her in terms that relate to their experiences. Once they see the correlation, the “light” will come on and the learning becomes easier and faster. Sometimes it takes numerous attempts from the tutor to find the appropriate level needed for the student to grasp the concept.

There are no dumb students. Just instructors who cannot relate to the student in a manner that allows the “light” to come on. That is why tutoring, one-on-one is such a great tool.

My greatest satisfaction is taking the student to the point of understanding how the subject relates to their experience and future career choices.

Tutor students in mathematical subjects of pre-algebra, algebra, algebra II, trigonometry and geometry. Tutoring computer skills, languages, how to use internet, search engines, general use of email word processing, blogs and social networking.

After 20+ years of tutoring in math, I have found the subject that most high school students have trouble with is NOT geometry But Algebra II. It is NOT just more algebra. It requires some reasoning skills that I can provide.

I have just finished tutoring another student for the CBEST and she passed with a very high score.

I have been tutoring CBEST students since 1990.

Study skills is an area that is directly related to discipline and time management. With a Master's degree, I have tutored students in both time management and discipline. For visually impaired, the requirement of reading and testing for understanding are required, which I have done with several students in the past.
