I usually use the Socratic Method as a means of a deeper analysis of the subject matter and therefore a more complete understanding. Recent students of Galveston College who took advantage of the tutoring center will already know me as the math/science/accounting/English/philosophy and many other subjects tutor. The Socratic Method is a "guided question" methodology that allows students to see how a problem is solved rather then just mindlessly applying a formula without a conceptual understanding of the problem.
A lot of students have difficulties with math and the math found in other subjects such as physics. Math is an interesting subject with a myriad of techniques for finding an answer. Math is progressive, that is one needs to have a firm grasp on previous math instruction in order to progress successfully in later math courses. This is especially true of calculus and its foundation of algebra. For instance, if one has a complicated fraction, it may be nearly impossible to find its integral without the algebraic construct of partial fractions and / or trigonometric substitution.
Remember that a strong foundation makes for a sturdy house. I usually use the Socratic Method as a means of a deeper analysis of the subject matter and therefore a more complete understanding.

Jay is the most patient and knowledgeable Math Tutor ever. I give him 5 STARS for each session. I am also learning Math all over again and we are very Blessed to have Jay as our tutor. My daughter is now more confident in Math as a result of Jay's tutoring sessions.
Jay is highly educated and professional with a great deal of patience. After speaking with Jay and reading his notes, it was clear that my daughter needs a teacher that can start over in physics and teach her the basics versus a tutor who helps her understand the current assignments. He returns emails and text messages promptly!
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 8+ years in bookkeeping experience and oversaw the Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Payroll and general ledger data entry. Being meticulous with numbers is a must for those that wish to embark on a career in accounting and or economics.
I have a wide knowledge of computers and have been a free lance computer repair technician since 1990. Obviously no one can know everything about computers (as evidenced by the esoteric questions that I got wrong on the General Computer test) but I do know where to look up information and make use of the data found. This was not allowed on this particular test.
I recently acquired my A+ certification (8/28/2012) by Comptia (code available upon request).
