METHODOLGY & TUTORING GOALS:

Mathematics can be intimidating to students who MUST take the classes but see no practical benefit to their future plans and goals.

Teaching mathematic subjects should be brought to a level that shows the student how it will be an important part of their future career, regardless of career choice. “If you cannot explain it to the student in terms that he/she understands, then you don’t have the knowledge or skills to be tutoring.”

Every student is unique and learns in a different way. Listening to the student, his/her anxieties about the subject and frustration with understanding what they are doing is the key element.

Mathematic subjects are no harder to learn than any other subject. The student needs the information told to him/her in terms that relate to their experiences. Once they see the correlation, the “light” will come on and the learning becomes easier and faster. Sometimes it takes numerous attempts from the tutor to find the appropriate level needed for the student to grasp the concept.









There are no dumb students. Just instructors who cannot relate to the student in a manner that allows the “light” to come on. That is why tutoring, one-on-one is such a great tool. My greatest satisfaction is taking the student to the point of understanding how the subject relates to their experience and future career choices.

Tutor students in mathematic subjects of pre-algebra, algebra, algebra II, trigonometry and geometry. Tutoring computer skills, languages, how to use internet, search engines, general use of email, word processing, blogs and social networking (Twitter, Facebook, etc.).

METHODOLGY & TUTORING GOALS:

Mathematics can be intimidating to students
who MUST take the classes but see no
practical benefit to their future plans and
goals.

Teaching mathematic subjects should be
brought to a level that shows the student
how it will be an important part of their
future career, regardless of career choice.
“If you cannot explain it to the student in
terms that he/she understands, then you
don’t have the knowledge or skills to be
tutoring.”

Every student is unique and learns in a
different way. Listening to the student,
his/her anxieties about the subject and
frustration with understanding what they are
doing is the key element.

Mathematic subjects are no harder to learn
than any other subject. The student needs
the information told to him/her in terms
that relate to their experiences. Once they
see the correlation, the “light” will come
on and the learning becomes easier and
faster. Sometimes it takes numerous
attempts from the tutor to find the
appropriate level needed for the student to
grasp the concept.









There are no dumb students. Just
