I have 28 years of teaching experience. I have been a math coach for elementary teachers. I have been a tutor for many students.
I love math and love teaching what I know. I like to make learning fun. I enjoy the challenge of the student who is having difficulty with the material assigned to them.
I think it is all about the approach a teacher is using. Most of the time a different approach is what a student needs and in a classroom the teacher is limited by time and the fact that some students already understand the concept. You have to have many ways of teaching the same concepts. I do have many different strategies that I use to help students understand and learn. I have 28 years of teaching experience.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
