I am currently a secondary level school teacher and have over 13 years of public teaching experience in mathematics including Math8, Algebra 1, and Algebra 2. I was the division "Teacher of the Year" in 2009 and Lead Mathematics teacher for 3 years. I understand how difficult it can be to grasp the concept of math and can remember sitting in my high school math class so confused about the subject but didn't raise my hand for help because I was too confused to even know what questions to ask. For many students, it takes a lot of effort and practice to become efficient at math, but it also takes a caring and devoted teacher who is able meet the student at his or her academic level. No two students are the same; hence, various instructional styles should be used to help the student become comfortable, successful, and hopefully gain an appreciation for math. A good teacher knows when and how to vary instruction and how to present the material at an understandable level. I teach toward mastery of the content using a step by step approach. I work through explaining the process as I solve the problem and then allow the student to try a similar problem.

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.
