I try to teach the student in a way that helps them understand the subject themselves. I will try different explanations to help the student understand the subject they are working on. I try to bring in aspects that they understand and help apply it into their studies.
I have recently been working with a tutoring agency. With them, I receive a wide range of motivation in students which gives me more experience in reaching more personality types.
I have been a tutor for the schools I attend for three years, one year at a college. I have also spent some time as a math grader so I am familiar with some of the places that students tend to get lost in the work.
I am working on a mathematics endorsement, making me qualified to teach math in public school. I have recently completed Linear Algebra. I feel qualified to teach junior high, and high school math, as well as some of the earlier college classes. I have worked not only as a tutor for schools, but also as a private tutor.
I work with the students, but I refuse to do the homework for the students. I want the student to be able to know the material so he/she is able to perform well on a test, and have better understanding so they can hopefully do the work without a tutor in the future. My goal is to help the students so they will no longer need my help.
