I have always enjoyed math and solving problems. Many students get lost in the language of math. They often see formulas but not what is needed to make them work. I have had extensive experience during my college days at the tutoring center and beyond in tutoring students in different areas of math.
My approach is interactive since it is important for the student to see what he or she knows and how one can build on that knowledge. I ask my students questions to help them recall useful concepts and and other information to solving problems. I also guide my students through the important steps of problem solving - since the journey of problem solving is every bit as important as the destination or solution. I always try to help students see what they know and use it to connect to concepts that they need to solve problems. Through the process, the students are more confident working through problems and gaining mastery. It is my goal to help my students to understand the concepts and gain the skills to answer math problems effectively.
