Short-Term: First, we'll focus on the immediate needs of the student - current material/topics, homework, study habits, upcoming exams, etc. The first priority is to improve grades. Medium-Term: After a few sessions, I'll be able to determine what specific aspects are giving the student the most trouble (relating concepts/real-life applications to equations, recalling information learned in previous years, test anxiety, etc.). As I learn more about the student's strengths and weaknesses, I'll be able to determine which techniques are most effective for them specifically. The goal here is to guide the student and improve their overall learning and studying habits. Long-Term: As we continue to recognize and adjust studying and mental habits, I then focus on teaching the student how they can identify which specific issues they're having, why they're having them, and how they can train themselves to overcome them on their own. My ultimate goal is to help the student learn how to teach themselves.

I start with focusing on the immediate need of the student (current lessons, homework, studying for tests, etc.) As I learn more about the student's strengths and weaknesses, I find what practices work best in helping the student learn. Once we "fine tune" studying and mental habits, I then focus on teaching the student how they can identify what specific issues they have, WHY, and how they can train themselves to overcome them.

I started tutoring when I was in high school. Because I had done very well on the recent tests, I was given the opportunity to help other students after-school for extra credit. After seeing how much I had helped my fellow students, my teacher had suggested I start doing it privately. Ever since, I have constantly been challenging myself to teach more and more. I'm very proud to say that over the years, I haven't done much advertising. An overwhelming majority of the students I tutor come from "word-of-mouth" referrals. Because of my approach, students see results almost immediately. Over time, as their grades continue to rise, they learn how to consistently improve on their own mentalities and study habits.
I have been tutoring math for over 10 years now. I have experience teaching ALL ages and grade levels. I have worked with students with a wide variety of struggles, including those with learning disabilities. I also have experience tutoring adults who are continuing education who haven't looked at a textbook in years.
