Dear parent/prospective student,

I'm writing to express my interest as a Math (elementary to middle school) and English tutor. You will find me to be a very hardworking and enthusiastic individual with over 3 years of experience helping students improve their academic grades. My approach to teaching is very simple. Before I begin a lesson plan, I always make sure to evaluate the student to find out what his or her level of understanding in the subject is. That way, we would both know what pace we need to start working from. I have mostly done one on one in home tutoring lessons, and have found that my students are more responsive in such settings where there's no immediate pressure to be like everyone else.

I have helped students with their Math problems by making them go to the basics, build a foundation, memorize formula whenever necessary, and learn various methods of solving a problem. In addition to this, my students are always given homework and quizzes at the end of each chapter to ensure that they have fully understood what we've already done. As I'm more interested in making sure that my students have a solid understanding of the basics, you might find that we are going at a slower pace than the class is. However, as I mentioned earlier, this method works best in that it helps the student build his or her confidence, which in turn leads to better overall grades.

In addition to Math, I also tutor English to both native and none native speakers. I have helped students and adults alike improve their conversational English, writing, grammar, comprehension, and essay writing skills. I have worked with students of all age group and various background improve their English, and I am confident that I can do this for your child as well. As with Math, I also give my English students quizzes such as dictation, essay writing, and comprehension exercises to be able to assess their skills. My know-how ability to develop interactive materials for my students enables me to produce excellent results. I possess a positive attitude and a passion to assist struggling learners.

If you would like to obtain my services, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am confident that if given the opportunity, I can help your child reach his or her academic goals.

Thanks
