I have experience tutoring all ages, most recently college level students. I try to practice patience, as I feel that is the #1 key to sucess with math. I try to be as thorough as possible, since math usually is a commulitative subject, meaning you need to take previous knowledge and apply it to new lessons. I strongly believe that I can help any student :) I have loved math all my life, and being able to be a tutor for College students have really sparked my passion for it even more!
The thing I enjoy most is seeing a student succeed. I give it my all when I tutor, so when I see my students doing the same and returning to tell me that they did great on their tests, quizzes, or even homework, I get extremely proud and excited! Seeing others do well is a gift within itself.
She amazing and very helpful.
She is very dedicated and humble when she helps her students!
Great tutor! She makes sure you really understand the content. Very friendly and make you feel comfortable in the learning process.
It's very important to access any underlying problems. Wether it be going back a few chapters and reviewing something, or further breaking down a new lesson!

I realized that I was pretty good at math and that many people weren't. Many people would ask me questions, and I always loved answering their questions. I completely understand that not everyone is a math person, so it would be wrong of me not to share my knowledge. The more I got to explaining math and seeing my friends do better in their exams, the more I loved it. I started tutoring as an official job this past August of 2016, and have loved every minute of it!

I was working at the tutoring floor, and I had a student tap me on my shoulder. Then, they say, "thanks to you I understand college mathematics! I come to tutoring just for your explanations because you're so thorough and patient with me." I have gotten a few of these comments, and they always mean so much to me.
Make sure you hire a tutor who isn't afraid to go back and explain something from earlier chapters.
Make sure you hire a tutor that is patient, and doesn't get frustrated.
Most importantly, make sure to hire a tutor who knows when they are unsure, and can refer to a book or google instead of leading you down the wrong direction!
What SPECFICALLY is it that I'm having trouble with? (Please, do not say everything! Try to find the root to the problem and go from there)
