My inspiration into teaching math started when I realized that I could elaborate material in a different way than my professors. As a college student, I know that time put into learning is rewarding. As a Fishhawk area private math tutor of 2 years I have personally seen the improvement in each and every one of my students in their classes. Students have told me that they understood more material in one session than several days of lecture. This feedback from my students is the reason that I tutor. I have worked in the Hillsborough Community College Math Lab and have an Academic Success Center tutoring certification.
I specialize in tutoring pre-algebra and algebra from middle school all the way to college. My objective in every session I attend to is to explain in as much detail as necessary with any single problem that the student is having trouble with. Each student is given a notebook that they will use in each of our sessions to take notes. I will guide them through a good note taking procedure and write side notes in their notebooks that help them remember the problem solving process. This notebook is useful for when the student is doing his/her homework and comes across a problem that he/she does not remember how to do. The student can resource to the notebook and figure out the problem. This exercises note taking/reading skills, which are very much needed when taking an exam.
Feedback from each sessions is a must because the opinion of each person is important. I encourage the students to be honest. I strive to be flexible with time and have a 4 hour cancellation policy, but I also offer makeup sessions.
For the convenience of my students, I give them the option of tutoring at the students home, meeting at a public location or online.
I am ready to inspire each student into learning mathematics effectively.
