I am a high school math teacher who is looking for opportunities in the tutoring field to help struggling students navigate their way through the rough and choppy world of mathematics. Students who fall behind feel overwhelmed with material too difficult for them to handle. Classrooms can be a difficult and noisy environment to learn in sometimes, and it can be a hard place to concentrate. Standardized testing has proven a disaster for teachers and students alike. Tutoring is sometimes the only way a student can really learn new concepts. For the past eight years, in college and now in the classroom, I have been helping students better understand math with my easy, living room style and approach of explaining math. I'm good; contact me!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Prealgebra

I have found that in many cases, students don't have a strong enough of a base understanding in the fundamentals of pre-algebra in order to tackle algebra. So, in an effort to remedy that with the students I work with, I propose a strong and thorough approach to pre-algebra. Proper attention now pays excellent dividends in the future.

Greetings. This is my first blog post of any kind, so forgive any breach of etiquette that may be attached to such postings. It is thrilling to start my own blog. I've never been much of a blog person (as you may have guessed after reading the first sentence), and I have never really understood the appeal of them. Blogs never come up when I Google something. They aren't on any list of... read more

Very Patient! — Joseph was absolutely great with my daughter. He helped her to understand so much in such a short amount of time. The first lesson was priceless.
