Tutoring Mathematics will be a first for me. I use to assist my friends in college and family members in grade school, but I never considered it outside of that until now. I suppose I didn't even realize how much I liked it until i moved away from them. I find success comes from development on these parameters: how you attack the problems, the verbiage you use when explaining it to yourself, and the personal discipline it takes to solve it.
I’m open to any questions or concerns you may have. I actually encourage it as talking over the specific situation is going to prove useful when determining how to proceed.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Before moving towards a destination, you must determine where you are. Once that is established, then comes the memorization and tactics. Notice I didn't say "making it fun" anywhere. That is because the tactics is the fun part, trust me. Even for a kid, you just have to use certain words for them to translate it more clearly. On the same note, pride comes from the achievement of what you have memorized and are capable of doing more than what problems you have already solved, typically. I do not do the best "learning style" as no student is limited to one. So I address them all, Visual, Verbal, Writing/drawing, if one of them isn't working in the moment, I refresh the slate, and try a different approach, until it clicks.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I majored in mathematics and I will pursue a graduate once I have saved up enough. I originally intended on being a teacher when I was in college, but I soon learned that teaching an individual rather than a class, was more my style. This is because teachers have to accept that it is not realistic for all of their students to succeed. It is not because they aren’t capable, but because not enough time is available to address each individual’s needs from the teacher. Although teaching will not be my full time job now, this is a solid work around.

As long as gas for distance is accounted for, the rest is negotiable.
