As an Engineer I realize that math is easier to understand if taught with real world applications. As an electronics instructor and math tutor, I've had success in teaching math using that method.

Students sometimes need to review previous learned math in order to understand new math concepts. If necessary, I’ll go back and review math subjects.

It is very rewarding to help a student achieve his/her potential.
