Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Tutoring is more than just teaching a subject, it's teaching people. I want to help my students not only learn the subject matter, but to become better students overall. My goal is to create an environment where not only is there a dialogue about a particular school topic, but also inspires the student to develop a desire to learn more. Once this is accomplished, real learning takes place.

I like to encourage students to ask any and all questions and to be fully engaged in the learning. I do find that students that are most successful identify the concepts the struggle with at the beginning of a particular sessions and we attack that first. So it is important to me that the student can show/develop a degree of leadership during the tutoring sessions.
In terms of style, it is very flexible to the student. For the more hyper student, I try to be energetic while more stern about staying on the right topics. The students that show interest in a topic, I'll always look for something extra (like a real world example) to incorporate into the classes.

I've tutored with MT Education Consulting Group for three years in:physics, calculus, pre-calculus, geometry algebra, SAT 1: Math, SAT 2: Physics, Math level 2, Math level 2. I've tutored middle school to college age students.
I've also tutored with America Math Counts Program for two years focussing on just middle school math.
