I know learning math requires more then just pencil and paper. My tutoring sessions are fun and creative. I teach math in Texas and I understand what skills you need to become a math expert.

I like to identify the students learning style. I have students take a brief survey to help determine if they are visual, audio, or kinetic learners. Most people use all learning styles interchangeably.
I have a masters degree in Education and Autism. I am a certified Texas teacher for grades Early childhood to 6th grade. I am also certified as a Special Education teacher for grades Early Childhood to 12th.
Private lessons are $15 per hour. Small group ( 2-4 students) $10 per hour per child.
I started teaching while in high school. I tutored my peers in reading and writing. I loved helping students " see" solutions in a different way. 5 years ago I decided to teach in the classroom.
In the last 5 years I haved worked with students age 3 to 13, including students with intellectual disabilities, autism, down syndrome, dyslexia, and ADHD/ADD.
Recently during a session I was in competition with my studenrs to use all strategies and solve a question quickly. Halfway through my problem I heard one student say "Mrs. Young all you had you do was estimate, work smarter not harder." It was beautiful because she was able to be the teacher and remind me to don't over think.
Find out if the teacher is familiar with the standards and expectations of your state and school district. While math is universal, the methods can vary by grade level in different areas.
Students should think about what they do know before talking with teachers. This will help the teacher understand where to start during instruction. A student that understands multiplication but not division does not need instruction on addition but may need help understanding division is repeat subtraction. Analyzing ones own abilities can assist with setting learning goals.
