Monmouth University (Mathematics)
Tutoring students in math in the past was very rewarding. I love seeing students become more excited about math when I watch them learn it and see their improvement. Math can be challenging to some I know. I have a love for math and have been through all types. In college I majored in mathematics and received a Bachelors degree. Do not get me wrong, it was a tough journey but now I look back and can say it was an great experience. I know pre-algebra, algebra I & II , trigonometry, geometry, and others. Working in math keeps me thinking and expands my knowledge of all aspects of math. I have also been involved in substitute teaching. Students that I have met in school have been somewhat reluctant in extending their math skills for some reason. If you really put your mind to it, it is not so bad. There is a lot to learn and it can be a nice way to understand the learning process. Anyone can be good at math if they know just a few basic points and theorems. The more you put in it, the more you get out.
The best way to be a good tutor is to understand the importance of it. You must be aware of what stage the student is at and build on that. Some students are slower than others but overall the knowledge level will be attained by all. Take each student as if they are ready for the challenge. Math is the best subject to learn. It is involved and has answers that are fun to learn. There are laws and theorems and equations that will assist you and guide you through it all. Take one step at a time and always remember the conclusion is there. Nobody will master math in a day, be careful for it is a good thing to be able to put time and energy into it. Step by step is the best way. There are some tricks that can help. Most of math has more than one way of tackling it. There are short cuts and simple rules that can show you an easier way. In all math is fun if you really can get over the initial shock.
My best attribute is that I have a very extensive college knowledge. I took many college courses, not just math, I have been through different majors on my way to mathematics. I have studied engineering, architecture, drafting and of course mathematics. I have been enrolled in college non-stop and part time for many years. It is good to keep learning every day. Never stop learning. The more you know the better you understand the world around you. I have had some teachers that were excellent and I have learned from them. The more a teacher enjoys their subject the more the student can enjoy the class. I recommend that any student that want to achieve great things, realize that it is up to you. Give it a chance and always see it as your time to succeed. Tutoring students in math in the past was very rewarding.

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.
