About Neils


Bio

I am a former full time middle school math teacher with Prince William County Public Schools, and have also taught in Montgomery County, Maryland. I have taught all subjects, mainly math, for over 15 years. I am well-versed in all areas of mathematics up to high school algebra. I am also very well-versed in writing and grammar. I am a writer and have published a book. I also play the saxophone and flute and have performed at some local venues, which enables me to teach these instruments...

I am a former full time middle school math teacher with Prince William County Public Schools, and have also taught in Montgomery County, Maryland. I have taught all subjects, mainly math, for over 15 years. I am well-versed in all areas of mathematics up to high school algebra. I am also very well-versed in writing and grammar. I am a writer and have published a book. I also play the saxophone and flute and have performed at some local venues, which enables me to teach these instruments as well.

My goal is to provide my students with the skills they need to succeed in their various academic areas using proven and research-based 'best practices' to ensure student success. My tutoring sessions usually span 5-10 sessions because I am able to provide my students with effective approaches, strategies and techniques, which they will remember and can easily apply, which makes any content area obstacle easier to overcome. I also am successful at developing a positive working rapport with my students with a sensitive, caring, non-condescending approach and attitude toward their academic development.

I employ modeling, manipulatives, real-life problems with some drill and practice to ensure full comprehension and skill attainment. I also assess through observation, quizzes and discussion. I utilize county approved websites in math to help provide students with videos and further practice/application.
