About Russell

If given the opportunity to be your tutor my ultimate goal will be to help you see how understandable math really is. I will maximize the use of all technology available to achieve this goal. I will diligently work to ensure that my lessons are easily understood and that you possess an overall confidence in your ability to perform in math.

It is truly a joy to experience a student gaining understanding of a once difficult subject. It is extremely important that our lessons be conducted in a laid back style which I believe allows students to learn without the undue stress caused by a harsh and/or stiff approach to learning.

I have successfully completed college level math courses up to Applied Math which has Calculus 3 as a prerequisite. I have over 20 years of tutoring experience and I have tutored approximately 30 students both children and adults. I have tutored students from kindergarten to college level in subject areas arithmetic to Calculus 2. I have also helped students to prepare for math TCAP and ACT tests.

I worked as a teacher for Memphis City Schools servicing East High School for 4 years (1998-2002) before moving into a position with Shelby County Schools as a Health Technician in 2003. I have a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Psychology with minors in Math and Engineering from Tennessee State University.

I realize that people have various learning styles and I believe It is very important to allow a student to understand or 'get it' in a way that makes sense to the student.

Please contact me. I am sure that we can make math a cinch.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have many years of experience in tutoring and teaching Algebra 1. I was an 'A' student in this subject. I can make math easy to understand. I have never tutored a student that did not improve significantly in math.

Algebra 2

It is ideal to have a good foundation in Algebra 1 in order to succeed in Algebra 2. When this is not the case.

I still can help a student achieve success in Algebra 2. We will us a 'learn it as you encounter it' approach as well as remediation (in regards to Algebra 1). Algebra 2 is a big step as this course sets a student up to succeed in upper level math courses.

Prealgebra

My love for math began with Pre-algebra or Arithmetic. This is obviously the beginning. I give each student a comprehensive inventory test to gauge achievement levels. I will make sure a student is thoroughly understands current classroom topics as well as work to strengthen the areas in which a student is weak as we go along. A student needs to have mastery of Arithmetic (Pre-algebra) in order to be setup for success in Algebra I.
