About Charles

Math is a subject that is based on rules. These rules never change, and as soon as you learn these rules, you master math! Also, when you learn a new aspect of math, you practice application over and over again. This repetition is a teaching method that you impose on yourself, and it works. Personally, I think my passion for math began with my high school teacher, whose name was Mr. Little. He showed me that math was just a way of thinking, a "game" as you might say.

Once I developed this passion for math, I took every math course in Junior College, and at FSU. That is up to Calculus III. To me, being a tutor is more than just the fee, its helping someone understand math and seeing their confidence bloom. I've decided to put my skills of teaching into the Pre-Algebra and Algebra levels for now. These are the subjects I taught in high school.

In my teaching method, I listen to what the student is asking and try to meet their needs. Not all students are the same. I find that solving the problem together at first builds confidence, and soon the student is solving the problems themselves with out any help. I've been a Tallahassee resident since 1962. I have a Bachelor's degree in mathematics from Florida State University. My first job after college was teaching math at North Florida Christian School. This is when and where I learned to develop my skills in teaching.

While I pursued other studies after college, and was a Teacher's Aide in math at Tallahassee Community College. So, if you need help in Pre-Algebra or Algebra, please consider me as you tutor. I have tutored math since college whether it was for a fee or helping my buds.

It takes a commitment from the student also!
