I taught high school math in a private Christian school for 10 years.

I see math as a 'game' to be played and won. IMO, that mindset helps struggling students succeed.

Math is based upon patterns. A tutor's job is to help the student recognize which patterns to use.

Bringing in real life uses of a math concept, as a teaching tool, helps the student understand how to view problems.

My philosophy is that I've never met a student that can't succeed in math if shown properly.

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.
