I like math. I have attended graduate school at UMass Boston, and completed by master's degree in mathematics education. I offer a very Socratic approach to teaching, that requires the student to demonstrate any prior knowledge of the subject, so I can zero in on what he or she needs most help with. I always ask how and why questions when tutoring, as these are the ones that truly matter in mathematics. It is not only important for students to "know" math, but also to understand why a particular problem can be more easily solved in a particular way.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
