Tutor Personal Information

Name: John M.
Gender: Male   Age: 26-30
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

As a math teacher for three years, I always emphasized with students the need to be able to justify and problem solve. While there is certainly benefits to performing repetitious math problems and memorizing formulas, but true learning occurs when students are forced to explain how and why mathematical ideas work or don't work. One of my main teaching goals is for students to develop strategies for breaking down and solving complex problems using diagrams, charts, graphs and mathematic manipulations.
