When I was an engineer I always find ways to break down a complex problem into several manageable portions in order to find the best solution for that situation. This is common sense and I use the same approach as well when tutoring math. Students need to learn how to approach and manage problems. I am very patient and always insist that student must acquire strong fundamentals. The 'how' comes second after 'why'. I am also in the opinion that learning math is similar to learning any musical instrument. It takes a lot of practice.

Math:
Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Prealgebra, Trigonometry
Homeschool:
Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Prealgebra
