## About

My name is Alison Hoffmann and I have been tutoring math since 1990. I really enjoy tutoring. The advantage to one-on-one tutoring is the student can go at their pace of learning. I explain skills and concepts so the student understands the math material. If there is not an understanding of a certain skill I have an opportunity to explain in another way. Repetition and understanding is a good way to become proficient in the area of math. I do what it takes for a student to learn.

## Frequently asked questions

### What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My process is to determine the student's present level of skills and understanding. First, I simply talk to a student to find out their interests, hobbies and how they feel about their own learning. Second, I tell the student I am a coach/cheerleader who will take the time to help him/her to be successful at learning. Third, I am very patient and will explain skills in various ways until the student is successful.

### What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a teaching certificate and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an emphasis in math. I have tutored over 30 years and have taught in the classroom for six years.
