I have taught in the school system and have tutored for the past 16 years. I have experienced first hand the frustration students have felt as they struggled with math
. However, working in the school system I was limited in what I could do about this, so I decided that my talent was better served providing one-on-one tutoring. I tutor K-12 math and English
Math is my absolute favorite subject to tutor. I love watching a student go from struggling with math to achieving high marks. Many children struggle with math from the very beginning. Math is a progressive study based on early fundamentals. Once a child learns one concept, the next concept builds upon the one he or she just learned. Every math concept builds upon the previous one, so if a child does not have a solid understanding of one particular concept, he or she will struggle with what follows after. For this reason math gets harder for these kids every school year.
To help these children, I go back to the basics to see where a student got lost. I help students grasp basic concepts of math that will apply to life skills such as paying bills, managing a budget and other necessary math-related skills. I use my expertise in math to help them improve their grades significantly, conquer their fear of math and boost their confidence.
I have been told by many students I have tutored that I explain things differently than their teachers and they understand the material better. I strive to explain concepts in a way that students will understand and remember. I strive to help students have a better experience with math.
I taught math and English at the Allen School of Health Sciences, a training school for medical assistants, and I taught GED
math and English reading
at LaGuardia Community College.
