I have tutored students from elementary to college age. And I focus on preparation and working with an educator.
I enjoy getting students either prepared or back on track. Really, fundementals and reminders are important. I like to see students improve their grades and understanding of the material. And if they learn to like Math more.
He brought my son up to speed with the class very quickly an my son was really behind he was very thorough with my son an his work and helping him
We have seen him twice so far in the last two weeks and plan to continue. My son finds it extremely helpful in preparing for his quizzes and Mark is very flexible about meeting times and proactive in telling the students to really ask questions in class and have a dialogue with their teacher. He is helpful in bringing extra items to the tutoring sessions and also makes himself available for questions outside of the tutoring sessions which is very helpful as well.
Mark is very friendly and good in teaching, we will definitely consider him for the future tutoring.
He was very patient and thorough explaining things to my son. Encourages students to practice skills and also to talk to their teachers. Prompt response time and availability.
I try to find where a student is at in the school year. Find out where they think they need the most improvement. Students give good feedback. Then I make general suggestions and go over detailed examples of what problems need work. I encourage preparation and strengthen basic math skills if needed. And communicating with an educator is important. Having a tutor can build confidence to speak up in class and after.
I started tutoring independently whilst a student at Bowling Green State University. I was on the list of tutors in their math department. After helping out multiple students I was referred to their athletic department to work but did not work for them as my schedule while taking classes required me to work independently at that time. I was very pleased and thankful to have received that referral though.
I have worked with students from elementary school to college and some who were looking to obtain their GED who were older or going back to college.
