I have been tutoring almost all of my life, beginning in 5th grade when I tutored a special needs student in spelling. In junior high school, I began regularly tutoring mathematics to other students and have continued doing so to this day. While in college, I was employed as a tutor for my college as well as several community high schools. As a tutor in college, I worked with a student who was blind and 95% deaf to teach her algebra 1 and 2. She successfully completed both subjects with an A! Upon graduation, I have worked as an independent contractor for 12 years tutoring all levels of math to students in the Richmond, VA community. After working with students, their grades have improved dramatically. I have found that some students just need the information relayed to them in a different way than the teacher taught and need the one-on-one attention to improve confidence.
