Hello! I am 21 years old and am currently in college, doing online courses to earn a Bachelor's in math education! I feel that tutoring will prepare me for my future career and to earn some money to pay for my classes.

I will work hard to assure that the student achieves their highest potential. I believe that learning should be a fun thing that sparks interest in the student. Students shouldn't be told something just IS; a teacher should explain to the student, or encourage the student to figure out, WHY something is so the student may build the ability to problem solve and figure things out for themselves.

The future of your student starts now!

** I currently am trying to get more students in the Puyallup/Sumner area. If you are unsure if you are out of that range, you are welcome to contact me to ask and I will determine whether you are a good travel distance from me. Thank you for your understanding!**

To solve for b you will want to get it to one side of the equation 6+3b=-18 Let's start by subtracting 6 from both sides. 3b=-18-6 Now you can simplify those number on the right. 3b=-24 Now to get b by itself you will need to divide by the 3 on both sides. So, after...

Happy Granddaughter — Laura and my granddaughter have had just one session but when she was finished and we left, I could tell by my granddaughter's mood that she was relieved and felt really good about the lesson. I'm looking forward to continued lessons through the summer to prepare her for 7th grade knowing she can do math with confidence. From my perspective, it looked as though she and Laura got along quite well. ...
