I can do elementary math, middle school math, Pre-Algebra and Algebra I.

My name is Frank, and I have been working at learning centers doing math for almost 5 years now. I have worked at both Mathnasium and Huntington Learning Center. I can do elementary math, middle school math, Pre-Algebra and Algebra I. The material taught in those courses is 2nd nature to me, and I feel I can be of great value to those that are in need of help in those subjects/grade levels. After Algebra I, my memory starts to fade from my own schooling, and I would have to retake the Geometry and higher level courses to remember all of the material. It was never too hard, I just don't remember all of it. I always got A's in all of my math courses; Math has always been the one subject that I excelled at and just came naturally to me.

When working with students, I feel it is best to help them out initially with some instruction and some problems, and lay things out step by step. Then I think it's effective to have them work on their own, and try to problem solve and critically think on their own. When they think things through without my help, that's usually when the grasp concepts and focus the most. A major road block for most of the kids that I've worked with is their confidence, and it can be boosted when they realize that they really can do the work. Generally speaking, the steps just need to be slowed down for students who struggle, and they get it just as well as anyone else. It's such a common thing to struggle in math; In my experience, I would say 75% of students need some form of help in math, even if they're getting decent grades. All of math builds on itself, and some skills don't develop in elementary math that hurts kids down the road and potentially for the rest of their life. This requires patience and the desire to help, and I feel I have both of those qualities.

I am a tutor, and a future goal of mine is to be a teacher. I have an Accountancy degree from Northern Illinois, and I worked in the business world for a handful of years. It took me a while to realize that it was never my true calling, and that I always loved the subject of math more than anything else. I am still working part-time in the business world, and I tutor math during after-school hours and some on the weekends as well.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I have been working at a math learning center called Mathnasium, with 1st grade through 6th grade students. I have 3 years of experience there. Elementary math is second nature for me. I can do all of the basic functions of math. I can help kids get away from finger counting, and teach them more visual methods of understanding addition and subtraction. I can work with fractions, decimals, and percents. I can work with ratios, rates, and proportions.
