I'm a retired Marine officer (helicopter pilot) with a Bachelor's degree in mathematics - who served for 29 years in the Marine Corps. I've tutored many friends, family, colleagues, and children of friends, family, and colleagues.
I've always received identical comments, "...my math teacher never taught us how easy math is - the way you show us." That's because I teach students beyond just learning a particular problem. I show them how to learn/teach themselves mathematics - it's easier than most people think.
I also show them the "why" behind each concept, not just the "how". I give some historical perspective, where concepts come from and why things were developed. But most importantly, why they need to know "this stuff".
The bottom line is math is low stress - and I enjoy seeing students learn just how fun and EASY math really is. I am currently pursuing my graduate degree in mathematics.
