Louisiana Tech University (Secondary Math Educa)
I have been teaching for 32 years and I love math. I have taught my own children (in eighth grade) and love to help students learn. Many students have difficulty in math because they don't "get it"...it hasn't been made personal to them. Many times a student needs the explanation in a different way or more than once. I have lots of patience and don't mind explaining things over and over. I have taught at the same school for the last 22 years and taught many students. Many students are working in jobs around town and see me all the time. They remember me and ask me, "Was I a "bad" student?" I remember their faces, but sometimes not their names, and I know they learned when they were in my class if they just applied themselves. I will help you too!

I was able to explain where I was lacking understanding in the material and she was great at focusing on those areas and explaining in only as much detail as it took for it to click. She is not one of those teachers that just enjoys hearing herself talk. She is very task orientated and was able to get my nerves calm enough for me to grasp the course work. Great tutor!
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.
Many students suffer from math anxiety and simply need a little more confidence and an explanation to which they can relate. Prealgebra is something they already use, they just don't know it yet! Help them understand the math by giving them a different perspective... then they will love it!
