## Frequently asked questions

### What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

There are a lot of really smart people out there, and there are people that are really good at explaining how they thing through problems. As a student, you need to find a teacher that thinks through problems like you do, and someone that you can learn from and retain that knowledge. STEM classes are challenging to many people because in a lot of scenarios, there are many ways to get to the answer, but learning the best way to get to that answer is different for some people.

### What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

When trying to determine what your needs are, you need to know the root issue that you are struggling with. Especially in math, where material builds on top of itself as it gets more and more complicated, you may only be struggling with a handful of concepts, but not understanding them causes you to miss other things.
