I am an excellent math tutor and work tremendously well with younger children. I have a passion for teaching. My students are very successful. I am a very patient and caring tutor. I believe learning math and reading at an early age is the KEY to their success in Jr. High and High School math classes. I have worked for many years with students and their families through the summers and school years, and have seen my students at the TOP of their class - and they usually remain at the TOP with continued, weekly reinforcement in math/reading learning. I am typically fully engaged in a student's learning environment, as I stay current with what they are working on and need to know. I believe in preparing ahead of time and challenging the student. This reinforces the learning in class and helps the student understand their homework on the days I am not tutoring them. I have a huge amount of resources and materials available to me and bring them to the tutoring sessions as needed. I believe in your student and every student - that they can learn the material and be successful and thereby gain confidence in their ability to do the work. I believe in positive reinforcement and positive encouragement. I want your student to be successful and gain a positive attitude toward learning. I have been tutoring for over 8 years, full-time, and have logged over 9,410 hours tutoring. I know how to properly tutor for my students to achieve success.
