Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A 6th grader who I'd been tutoring Algebra 1 had been struggling with understanding the lessons taught in class and was afraid of the subject. We had been reading the lessons together and I'd been explaining the core factors of the subjects, then guiding her through example problems. Two weeks later, when the past lessons were being used in more advanced problems, she stopped halfway through solving a problem and realized she had been solving the problems she was previously afraid of. She was very proud of her accomplishment and I was proud of her recognizing her ability once she's not afraid of her challenge.


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

If you don't understand what is being explained to you, do not pretend you do. It is much better to admit you don't understand than to continue to struggle. Looking for help is not weakness!
