I have eleven years experience teaching high school mathematics and I have had numerous tutoring jobs over the years. I have a great deal of experience teaching students of varying math abilities and when explaining concepts/skills/ideas to a student I work hard to make the problem relevant and understandable for the individual student.

"SHE's AWESOME!!!" (She really connected with our kid and met his needs)

Our 11-year-old nephew was not that enthusiastic about starting math tutoring sessions. I interviewed a few Wyzant tutors -- all of whom were well qualified, professional, and intelligent -- but I just thought Laurie's personality would be a good fit with our unique, funny nephew. At the interview, Laurie seemed very likable and easy going, and she had a good sense of humor. My hope was to find a tutor who would "get" my nephew and help him find math interesting. I wanted a tutor who was approachable that could make math approachable, too, for this young man with a math disability who gets anxious about his math abilities. So after the first session, I called and asked my nephew what he thought of Mrs. T., and he exclaimed "SHE'S AWESOME!!!" (I would embolden and italicize that if I could) He reports that Mrs T.'s kind of math is "fun" and yet "she made it relevant to what we are doing in school." Laurie was also willing to work with me, beyond the usual tasks of a tutor, to arrange place and time with my nephew's school, and she even offered to provide a snack, even though I offered to get them for her. (He definitely needs to eat a snack to be tutor-able.) And I love that she spent the last few minutes of the lesson listening to his current obsession: Einstein and physics. Encouraging his interests and finding out what intrigues him will help her find more ways to make math "fun" and "relevant" to him. In short, she is everything we hoped she would be.
