I have earned a BS in Computer Science, with a very strong math minor. It would have been a double major, but third-year theoretical math stopped being fun. However, math up to and including first year calculus was both straightforward and mostly fun. Since graduation, I have worked with computers, systems administration and programming, but I have lost none of the math I learned as high as high school algebra and geometry and basic calculus.
I enjoy teaching and explaining many things to individuals and small groups, although my tutoring experience is somewhat limited. I can communicate in different styles with different people, based on how I see they can learn most effectively.

I have taught small groups of elementary students in various subjects and settings, and I have worked with individuals. I patiently reinforce and remind students about what we've covered, emphasizing being careful when reading (for accuracy and comprehension) and when working arithmetic problems (to avoid careless mistakes).
My math background and knowledge are more than sufficient for that portion of the exam, as evidenced by my scores on the WyzAnt math tests. I have no problem with reading comprehension (literal and inferential), as shown by my performance on the reading/understanding/comprehension tests for the ACT, SAT, PSAT, GRE, and GED exams. I am adequately proficient in writing, although I have no recent quantification of that skill.
