Tutoring Style and/or Experience

My style in math is for students to come to understand the very fundamental reasons why things are as they are.

I believe that the reason why is often left behind in our modern school strategy of preparing students for exams. What happens then is a pyramid of lack of reasons upon lack of reasons is built up from 5th grade to 12th grade and mathematics becomes, for many students, nearly identical to history.

Mathematics should not be a long list of facts to be memorized. My goal is to ensure it is not.

Over time most aspects of math become more clear and more obvious - and more enjoyable.
