PhD in mathematics, University of Pennsylvania.
Helped numerous kids in math over my time.
Have a clearer take on math than just solving equations or doing word problems. Most people just try to get students to acclimate to the standard math pedagogy. Personally, I think the standard math pedagogy is outdated and useless. There is a simpler and clearer way to view mathematics, at least as it pertains to what is being taught at the high school and college level.
I also try to introduce more real-life examples, even though I understand there is a need to "solve the problems" to get the good grades to get into colleges. (That route to getting into college is also outdated, by the way.)

Step 1: Have an in-depth, but brief chat to understand the needs of the student.
Step 2: Perform a simple diagnostic exam to understand the level of math comprehension.
Step 3: Decide whether I can or cannot help
