My passion is for students to feel good about the material and it be even fun when you know how to handle it. I have an adaptive style to the what the student needs. I am very patient and have the attitude that anyone can learn math with the perfect amount of practice. I have been tutoring for 12 years. I have Bachelors Degrees in Math/Economics and Accounting. I have a Masters in Accounting and Masters in Business Administration. I work with how the student likes to learn so that the process is natural for them. I suggest different options too in case what they have tried has not work already for them for additional learning.
What I enjoy most is that after a session, the student feels so much better about the material. They understand better and are more confident. With additional practice, they can not just do ok, but master it. This reflects in the higher grades, but more importantly, they do not feel like math is a dreaded subject anymore.

What types of students have you worked with?
I have students from various ages. I have worked with ages 7 through 70 years old. I have worked with students who have F grades and needed to improve. I have worked with students who had A grades and dropped to C grades and wanted to get back on track.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I had a student who is working getting his GED. He was getting frustrated with the process of learning 4 years of math for one test. We broke it down, and now he is much more confident with the material and even happy to look at math.
