My name is Mary and I am currently a student at Texas Tech University. I am getting my degree in education specializing in math and history for grades 4-8. I tutored several peers in high school and work at an after school program where I have gained a lot of experience in helping students with homework and tutoring them in various subjects. I would prefer to tutor in math because I am most confident about my math skills and my knowledge of teaching math. Its not enough to know how to do a math problem, to be a good teacher or tutor you must also be able to break it down and explain it in a way that your student can understand. I feel that if given the opportunity and the correct learning environment any student can do math(or any other subject) even if it doesn't come easily for them. The key is to have patience and to work hard and that is exactly what I will do for you or your child.

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 believe that I am qualified to tutor elementary (K-6) because I have a lot of experience with that age group. I have worked at the YWCA after school program for almost 5 years and have taken many education classes at Texas Tech University. Although these classes specialized in middle school math and history I believe that I not only have the knowledge to assist students with their learning but the experience working with children of this age as well. I have also taken many child development classes at Texas Tech where I have learned about how the child brain learns and develops, which will help me to cater to their current developmental needs.
