I am a math major from Eastern Michigan. I received my degree in 2009. I have worked many very difficult math problems over the years and should be able to help any high school student from algebra I through calculus. When I started in college, I was nervous about getting through calculus and algebra. I found some of the material hard to understand, but I overcame my difficulties and I like to pass along some methods for solving problems to save my student's time.
I believe every student has to learn at the level they are at. There is no need in "making it easy" or taking shortcuts to learn superficially. The key is to break the problems into smaller pieces and then make it easy for the student, so that they can learn in a more comprehensive way. The student has to be made comfortable and not talked down to. Every student can learn math or computers to some level, the tutor just has to figure out what level that is and work with the student. There are some subjects that some students will learn more easily, but that isn't that important. Eighty percent of students should be able to do most math through algebra II.
