I was not the person who didnt study, didn't do homework, and still got an A on the test. I had to struggle, work, and put in the time to be successful in mathematics. That being said, once I master a topic, I am really good at explaining that topic in a variety of ways. This is what makes Howe's Math Help stand out. I understand what it is like to struggle in math class. I like to think I can speak the language of the struggling math student.
I taught high school math for three years at a charter school in St. Louis city. I recently left that position, which was a wonderful experience, to travel with my wife who is a traveling therapist. I have a math degree with a master's in teaching.
It is my goal to provide a patient and encouraging environment where the student will be able to grow, confidently, in their abilities!
The best part of teaching/tutoring is seeing students excel in areas they didn't think they could excel. I enjoy the subject matter, but mostly I enjoy the challenge and the struggle of trying to solve a problem. When a student goes from a strong belief that they are "just not good at math" to just as strong of a belief that they can learn and figure out anything, this is the highlight of teaching.

I have always had a passion for seeing others overcome challenges. My parents are both in a teaching role, so I have seen the wonderful impact they have had on their students and their students have had on them.
