I helped many kids with their homework in math.
I've helped other students through Wyzant.com in their study skills through tutoring in Math/Reading using practice lessons through work sheets, covering skills on a dry erase board, flash cards, and presenting problems with worksheets I made up. I also work as a substitute teacher grades k through 12, and have helped students' at the elementary/secondary level develop their study skills while preparing for a test such as assigned work sheets, note taking, preparing outlines for a paper, or underlining important concepts in a textbook.
