I have been a math tutor for eleven years, and I love it! I love math, and I get great satisfaction from sharing that love. I have a BS in computer engineering and am a certified math teacher in two states. I have a great talent for diagnosing gaps in understanding and I know how to fill them.
From a young age I would lie awake at night thinking about the math that I was learning in school, deconstructing the algorithms that my teachers were teaching me. As a result I have a very deep understanding and good number sense and I am able to explain concepts in a way that makes sense to your brain! Everyone is a math person if the math is explained your way. I have a lot of hands-on manipulatives to help along the way!
I would love to help you discover how wonderful math is! Contact me for more information!
Math tickles my brain! I love the logic of it! I love the beauty of it! I love sharing this joy with others! I can help you find a love for math!
She does a very good job at gauging what I needed to know and providing tutoring based on that. She is also very kind and is very enjoyable to work with.
I hired Carmel to tutor my son through Algebra II/Trig. She was excellent in helping him excel in working through his own homework. She would review what the teacher had instructed and made sure he completed homework satisfactorily. My son enjoyed this tutor very much and had a successful year in math. I would highly recommend Carmel. She helps the kids enjoy this subject. When she was tutoring my child, a parent at another school heard about her and Carmel ended up being hired by many parents to tutor almost a whole class because the teacher at the school wasn't doing such a good job. I also referred her to a friend of a middle schooler. If you have any concerns about your child and getting math homework done, Carmel was a Godsend to us, and she has my recommendation.
Carmel was accommodating, patient, and highly-skilled. She taught my daughter different methods to solve a problem, and my daughter was able to master concepts which seemed impossible previously. Definitely recommend!
During our first session I am happy to work on anything that you find urgent, but the best benefit will be found after I can do some diagnostic testing. I will listen to the student and parent, if applicable, to understand what your concerns are first. Once we are satisfied that I understand your needs, I will do some diagnostic testing, which will involve a series of questions put to the student.
My biggest request, if you choose to work with me, is for no one to ever say that the student is not a math person! I believe that everyone is a math person, you just need it explained to you in a way that makes sense in your brain. I can do that for you, and the more time I spend discussing math with you, the better I'll know how your brain thinks about math.
