Over the past 3 years I have tutored both through WyzAnt and in tutoring centers in northern New Jersey. I tutor mainly in mathematics, and I hold a Bachelor's in Mathematics from Rutgers University. I find that the most detrimental thing to a mathematics student is lacking a core foundation. In math, everything you learn builds on top of what you learned in previous years, and without that strong foundation, students can fall behind. When teachers explain something in class they assume that the students have a certain knowledge about math based on what they learned in previous years. If a student is lacking in a certain area of what they are assumed to know, they won't understand the new topic, and it creates a snowball effect where the student falls more and more behind. As a tutor, I feel it is my job to fill in those gaps so the student can learn effectively. I have experience tutoring in a broad subject range, from Algebra through college level Calculus.
