I have been teaching basic math through Intermediate Algebra for 30+ years. I have taught these courses in Junior High, High School, College and Sylvan Learning Center. I love to help students understand why a problem requires certain steps, yet allow the student to be creative in their approach to math. Math must make sense in order for a student to remember it as a later time. Students must learn the basics in order to understand the Algebra.
At the same time, I have been involved with tutoring math students. I have tutored students in their homes, in my home, at their school, and at Sylvan Learning Center. I clarify concepts through question and answer and observe student work to identify what they know and what they need to learn. I teach using manipulatives, drawings, and charts. I will use my tutoring time to check homework, correct quizzes and tests, and work on "what if" problems, or anything else that is needed. I have puzzles and worksheets that help students work on their multiplication facts, fractions, and decimals. I will make the session fun and fulfilling.
I believe in Team-Based Learning and am willing to tutor either individuals or small groups of three or less. Let me work with your student(s) and bring their math skills up to grade level.
