Comprehensive Math Assistance

tutoring & advice

 with Tobey Brady

short description:
Basic operations to calculus, Q&A or lesson set-up
long description:
I will provide tutoring to students in the broad range of math, from basic operations through calculus. I can either help with question and answer or set up a lesson on your desired topic. I have tutored many people in many math subjects over the last 10 years. I especially enjoy helping students find fundemental math misunderstandings, which are usually the reason the students seek help in the first place. If you learn using a unique style, I am proficient in many deliver methods.
level of difficulty:
all welcome
minimum class size:
I am available at any time for now. If I find a regular job then I will post altered hours. I travel a fair amount but nearly always have access to the internet.
fee comments:
This is for each session that is pre-planned by request of topic. IF you have tutoring questions that can easily be answered, I will charge less.

description of :
I consider myself the accidental teacher. In college I knew that teaching was an option for me but I resisted getting my education degree since I thought I would lack the patience required. After I graduated, I found I was gravitating toward education-like jobs and truly enjoyed them. Then I went back to school to get my Masters. I began teaching on campus to mainly college freshman in remedial and college algebra. I realized the joy I took away form my job and knew I had made the right choice to teach. After graduation and a move to Illinois, however, I am fighting against job and budget cuts in order to teach students. I hope to teach in a high school someday soon when the schools are once again able to find new talent.
I also enjoy learning about other people, whether it is their culture, their thought process, understanding how they learn, etc. I have completed a study abroad to Japan and would love to return one day. I have a father that is Dyslexic and have some very minor problems relating to that myself. I have a husband that is ADHD, and so have learned to cope with many different ways of thinking and processing information.

's preferred teaching style:
In math, many things can easily be done online. When I am teaching to a room full of high school or college students, I implement technology whenever I can. Therefore, learning online is not that much differnt except that I cannot read the students as easily (ie body language can be hidden, etc.). I know that students learn math in different ways and if I see that a student is misunderstanding or becoming confused then I can easily, quickly and proficiently switch to a different learning style to see if that helps. I am not interested in providing answers or making a student dependent on my help. My goal is for each student to become confident in their own skills and become an independant learner.
