Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have been a math teacher for six years. During this time I taught middle school math, algebra, geometry, and some trigonometry exclusively or in conjunction with other subjects. In the past, I have tutored students in the summer who needed additional help, or worked with students referred to me for enrichment. In tutoring, I like to explain large topics to my students, in small bite-sized bits so the students can conquer skills step-by-step, with time to practice along the way. Once students are ready to apply those skills, then we move on to new topics or challenge problems to deepen those skills. I use timed drills, puzzles, and word problems to keep things interesting and expose students to a variety of problems. I love helping students when they are stuck and then witnessing them succeed. That's the whole point!
