I believe that Math is one of the easier subjects and if taught correctly and the student and the parent understand that the work has to be put in, great things can be achieved.
As a tutor I focus on making math problems fun, for the simple reason that you want to keep the student interested and at the same time focus. I also like to relate math problems to everyday situations (miles driven, taxes, eating, drinking water or juice, etc). Also, I communicate to students the importance of a strong math foundation and how it is beneficial in their career and finally assure and reassured the students how proud I am of every accomplishment in the subject matter.
Before I went into the private sector, I was a math teacher for 10 years and I also taught computer science. I still tutor students today and enjoy making math simple and easy to understand.
I have a BS degree in computer science and a minor in mathematics from Alabama State University. My minor in Mathematics came about when I needed a challenge, so I changed my major from Mathematics to Computer Science.
