My name is Regina Dill and I have been teaching private flute lessons for 30 years and middle school mathematics for 18 years. Through teaching flute lessons I have developed an effective 1 to 1 style of instruction and as a middle school math teacher I am very familiar with all of the math skills needed for success in grades 4-8 and am very comfortable teaching these skills in a variety of ways.
I currently teach at South Providence School in Waxhaw, NC. This is an alternative school where I teach all three grades of middle school mathematics, but I mostly deal with students on a social/emotional level. I enjoy tutoring mathematics because it is refreshing to do some teaching which is all about the math! I also really love being there when a student has a AHA! moment. It is truly one of my favorite parts of teaching!

Depending on the grade, I will go through the state released test questions with a student to see where their deficiencies might be and then go from there building the basic skills needed for mastery.
I am a NC Certified Middle Grades Math teacher with 10+ years of experience with the NC curriculum for middle school mathematics.
$50.00 for an hour. One hour seems to work best for deep learning.
I taught private flute lessons while I was a professional musician with the Air Force. After having children, I needed to make a career change and since I had enjoyed teaching flute so much, I decided to go back to school on the Hope Scholarship in GA to be a middle school math teacher.
I have worked with the entire spectrum of children from students with many mathematical gaps to gifted students in 6th, 7th , and 8th grades. I have worked with students as young as 4th grade for math and flute lessons.
I am currently teaching an 8th grader at South Providence who is very gifted mathematically and it has been wonderful to watch him recognize his talent while I worked with him one on one. When I had taken him as far as I could I found to friend to tutor him and he is doing wonderfully!
Students who want to improve at math should hire a tutor who is very familiar with the vertical alignment of the state's math standards and how they tend to be taught during each year. A math tutor should also be able to create real world solution math problems that are meaningful to the student. A tutor should also be able to think about a student's solutions thoroughly in order to show them how much they were doing correctly to increase math confidence and fight mathphobia
How do you feel about math...does it intimidate you to the point you are paralyzed? What is the last year of school that you felt good about math? Can you organize your thoughts on paper for problem solutions?
