About Neil

I tutor/taught Basic Arithmetic through Algebra 1. My student's progress is most important to me. Toward this end, I have earned NJ Teacher of Mathematics
certification, as well as NJ Elementary School Teacher certification.

My students have learned addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, of fractions-decimals-percents. These three are usually grouped together. Each can be changed to the others, when it's helpful to do so.

Knowing the concept of ratio-and-proportion has been useful in finding the measurements in geometric figures.

I've shown the logic in setting up and solving word 'problems'. The student uses her or his (5) senses to transfer knowledge to these "new" situations.

I've taught a 3-credit course, "Basic Mathematics"; and a 4-credit course, "Arithmetic and Algebra".

I'm patient, giving the respect that each student deserves. He or she is encouraged to stop me, at any point, if clarification is desired. Sessions are paced to the student's comfort level, while still presenting a challenge. Each new topic is related to the previous lesson(s).

During the sessions, I ask the student to explain each new concept to me, using her or his own words.
This use of the student's own resources solidifies learning. Additional motivation is instilled by the recognition of progress, and (shared) enthusiasm !

Approved subjects

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.

Kind and Patient

My son found Neil to be very nice and kind and really took his time to explain things through - I could see my son seem to "get it" but the end of the lesson. We are happy with our choice of tutor.
