I believe the key to success when studying math and science is not mere memorization but in understanding. Simply memorizing steps will be of little help to a student if a test contains questions in a form that they've never seen before, and will be of even less help when a student takes Algebra II (for example) when he or she didn't fully understand Algebra I.
In working with students, I begin by having them explain to me the areas of a subject with which they are having difficulty and why. From that point, the student and I go step by step addressing the problem, looking at it from as many different angles as necessary.
As for a little information about myself... I have a Bachelor of Arts in Natural Science and Mathematics and an Associates of Applied Science in Medical Laboratory Technology. I have experience tutoring students in algebra, pre-calculus, and basic physical science at the high school and college levels.

Each tutoring session will be for a one hour minimum. Any fraction of an hour will round up to the next whole hour.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Have taken several algebra courses at the college level and have further taken calculus I, II, and III, which require a firm understanding of the algebra upon which those subjects are based. Have tutored a multitude of students in algebra to help them successfully grasp and retain the material of the course.
