Hello! I am Mr. B and I warmly invite you to give me the opportunity of improving your greatest treasure.

For the past five years I have been tutoring students in a wide range of math and science subjects. These include Grades 3-8 Math and Science, Integrated Algebra, Geometry, Chemistry, Living Environment, SAT and GED. I enjoy tutoring because it is a means of empowering students to achieve their full potential. My BSc degree (physics) gives me a strong foundation for the subjects I teach.

I maximize student achievement and group satisfaction by forming partnerships with parents, guardians and students in which adults provide not only funds but encouragement and motivation.

Many weaknesses in Math spring from a failure in the mastery of basic concepts. I quickly discover major topics that need attention by giving short, efficient, non-threatening pretests. Each lesson improves the student's ability to answer practice questions and broadens and reinforces basic and general math concepts.

I emphasize the technical nature of mathematical language so that students understand rules and principles and the conditions under which they hold. This eliminates the confusion and frustration of applying rules to situations in which they are not applicable. Can you imagine the confusion of applying the Pythagorean Theorem to triangles other than right-triangles? Keen awareness of the nature of math language produce students that can be self taught. I strive to make my students independent learners.

I structure my lessons to meet the needs of the individual student. Lessons are carefully sequenced to provide small increments of knowledge and application that lessens the stress of learning. I equip students to transfer math and thinking skills to other disciplines and to life in general. It is my philosophy that successful learning must be a life changing experience.

I regard tutoring as an exercise in which both student and tutor learn and are improved. I highly regard the criticism of my students and am always willing to explain my approach or to make adjustments to my methods or attitudes. I genuinely believe in a pleasant learning environment. My engagements are happy and more often than not we just become family and stay in touch. We will all learn and be empowered together!
