I began tutoring in undergrad (Furman - full academic scholarship + book allowance; best school in home state) and have since worked in academic community support as a tutor, adviser, and behavioral specialist. Experienced with clients of all ages, elementary to adult, I have found great success in an ever growing range of subjects and ages (including adults). Most often I tutor middle/high school math
skills (this includes homework help/study skills
, essays, Hunter Exam, & much more).
I am a great communicator with both parents and students. People find my personality charismatic and amicable. I emphasize positive reinforcement and build "horizontal" rapport with students while yet providing honest diagnoses about needs for improvement and obstacles to success. I work with advanced students trying to raise a 'B' to an 'A' as well as those merely struggling to pass, and also those facing obstacles such as ADHD
I am available for that one- or two-session bump you need, or for long-term tutoring where I make myself a ready and available resource for clients, always there, a call or text away. I am also willing to tutor at unusual hours, such as early morning before an exam. I enjoy meeting new people and building relationships with those I help learn to love learning. I am somewhat new to WyzAnt, but tutoring is my schtick!

Note that when he is "subtracting the first equation from the second equation" it is like he multiplies the first equation by negative-one, then...
Before I realized I had a gift in tutoring as a professional activity in and of itself, I used to do a little bit of it as part of my job as a 1-on-1 and Family Community Support and Intensive In-Home behaviorist. While I performed many functions which
straddled the fence between mental health and social work, a large part of my job involved coordinating between my clients (usually teens...
