METHODOLOGY:

I've tutored math students since 1993, and have had the pleasure of seeing these students demonstrate marked improvement in their performances. I'm patient in explaining concepts to students, and work hard to get them to show me that they both understand the concepts, and can solve the problems themselves. While adhering to a timetable is important, often it's not necessary to make certain that we get through a certain amount of material in a given session. Rather, it's important that the student thoroughly understands each of the concepts we're able to address in the time allotted.

I also have experience in tutoring students in English, primarily in the area of TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language). Patience in working with the student, and a varied approach that includes plenty of opportunities to speak, write, read and listen to English, are what's important here. You want to push the student to the edges of her or his "comfort zone" without overwhelming her or him, and a great way to do this is to get the student to speak to you, in English, about things that interest her or him.

AVAILABILITY:

So far as availability is concerned, I am available to help most late afternoons and early evenings. I am also available, on a limited basis, on weekends. As noted above, I cannot usually accommodate same-day requests for help. Thank you for your understanding.
