About Neils

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.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

Number Properties, solving one-step and multi-step equations, integers, inequalities, Pythagorean theorem, word problems, geometric applications, percent problems, literal equations.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra encompasses all the areas of math that are needed to learn algebra: fractions, decimals, integers, number types and properties, percent problems, measurement, some metric applications, some geometry, and word problems. Solving multi-step problems is one of the most important areas that leads directly into algebra.
