As a former math teacher at St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire, I've continued my interest in math throughout my career. I've tutored math at various levels and have worked with students who had various problems.
My math background includes real world experience having been a mathematician for a major defense contractor. My work was primarily in the intelligence gathering area. It was so exciting to see "math in action."
I believe it is key to make students feel comfortable with studying math and to make the tutoring sessions enjoyable. I try to make math relevant and have students use math in everyday problems.
Do you know how many careers require good math skills? You'll be surprised!
