As a graduate assistant for the mathematics department at California State University at Northridge (CSUN), I successfully tutored CSUN students and also high school students through referrals from CSUN. Between 1991 and 2018, I taught mathematics (mostly Beginning Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, and Prealgebra) for various community colleges in Southern California including Santa Monica College. As part of my teaching assignments. I held office hours and would tutor students who needed help. I consistently received high ratings from my students in student surveys. In 2019 and 2020, I tutored some high school students in Algebra. One of my students received a grade of "D" in Algebra the semester before I started tutoring him. The first semester in which I tutored him, I was able to help him earn a "B". The following semester he was able, with my help, to bring his grade up to an "A". My other Algebra student also improved his grades when I worked with him.
I enjoy tutoring especially in helping students overcome their fear and anxiety about math and seeing them smile as they succeed.
The qualities and skills that help make me an outstanding tutor are: 1) I relate well to students, explaining the concepts
in a way that is easy to understand 2) I give the students a lot of encouragement and positive feedback 3) I give students opportunities to ask questions 4) I maintain a reasonable pace for tutoring sessions 5) I give helpful advice on test-taking strategies
I encourage you to contact me to learn more about me and schedule lessons. I am very confident I can help you. Thank you.
