Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I truly believe that math is not complicated nor the things that nightmares are made of. I can help your son or daughter understand Math by breaking down complicated concepts in to basic elements and helping him or her see how all of the pieces of the puzzle fit together. Math is really simple where most problems can be solved in 3-5 steps. Typically, if math is complicated it's because the method of instruction is complicated. As a math teacher/tutor, I help students solve problems by watching them work the problem while discussing problem solving strategies step by step, and correcting any errors in thinking and approaches to solving the problem. Math really is simple and I can show you how.
