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.
I have 9 years of experience teaching algebra I, as well as 5+ years of tutoring both high school and college students in their algebra courses.
As an eighth grade math teacher for 9 years, I have developed many methods that have helped my students become successful. I will focus on the basic skills whenever necessary to build confidence and accuracy. I will also guide your student to see the "bigger picture"; rather than just memorizing procedures we will strive for understanding, making connections to real-world applications along the way.
