Because I have a love of children and teenagers, I have met with great success in teaching and tutoring. I was blessed with patience and kindness, which helps in explaining all phases of Math. I use the approach of mastering one step at a time because Math is a building block. If you do not pass one level as an example, it is not likely you will understand Algebra 1. I also believe in teaching the basic operations in Math, which is a prerequisite for higher Math.
My approach to teaching is a step-by-step method with the student taking notes and an example for each concept. This will serve as a reference if the student forgets. I teach ONE concept at a time with a sense of order. This is different than the approach to MCAS where subject matter is presented in a hurried fashion for the test.
My experience in tutoring Math expands over 25 years. I graduated college, cum laude, with a degree in Education. I taught in Brockton Public School for 3 years, K1, and substituted 2 years in Norwood, teaching all grades, all subjects. Because my husband bought a business, I then was CFO of his corporation for 21 years. During this time, my neighbors'
children and teens were failing Math and a business bloomed. I can provide references of the success that I had from Grades 6-12. As a result, EVERY person that I tutored raised their grades from D or F to B or A. This year was no exception. One student received an A minus and the other a B plus for the year in Grade 6.
All my Geometry and Algebra students, started with me in 8th grade and continued through high school. Each one was accepted to great colleges and are success stories. My record and experience makes me a tutor in demand.
Another success story is my own granddaughter, age 6. I started with the basics before she went to kindergarten this year. As a result, she was reading on a second grade level and her Math skills were above grade level. She certainly had the edge in her first formal year in school.
