Since 2001, I have been tutoring all grade levels, from elementary education to upper-level college courses. In May of 2006, I graduated with honors from Boise State University (BSU) with a B.S. in Mathematics. I presented my Honors Thesis at three conferences between 2004 and 2007. In May of 2008, I graduated from BSU with an M.S. in Mathematics and successfully defended my Masters Thesis.

I like to look at recently graded material or let the student describe what he/she is struggling to understand.
Tutoring since 2001, taught 20+ semesters of college math, B.S. in Math (2006), M.S. in Math (2008), J.D. from Notre Dame Law School (2011), currently 5th year Math Ph.D at CU Boulder.
$40/hr if we meet on the CU Boulder campus, $50/hr anywhere else.
All ages and levels. About 40% have been middle school/high school and half have been college.
I tutor two middle school brothers and their friend and the mothers asked if i would play music with them. I play drums, piano, and guitar, so the four of us had an improv jam session. Unique as far as math lessons goes.
Make sure they explain the why, not the how. Tutors get lazy, too, and will give bandaid solutions rather than fix a cracked foundation.
"Can I explain this to others?" Until you can explain material to fellow students, you don't really understand it.
