Tutoring Style and/or Experience

The best way to learn is by example. Most of the time I start out with a general way to think about it, then move into examples based off that until they can answer it on their own multiple times. That also depends on the level of the student, if its at a low enough level you can start with random questions and move into the general form after that. I've tutored everything from elementary math to differential equations.

I'm a math and physics tutor who has been working for 8 years. I have a degree in mathematics and physics and enjoy teaching. Prices are negotiable and depends on travel time and class.

I can teach at nearly all levels; Kids age 5+ all the way to advanced classes in college.

Some examples would be

Grade School:
Basic Arithmetic (add, subtract, multiply, divide)
Pre-Algebra (powers, fractions, order of operations)
Algebra (solving for variables, and graphical intuition)
