Frederick Douglass Tutoring LLC
I am a graduate of Alabama State University and have a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics. I have years of experience helping students in the ASU mathematics lab and have tutored at community colleges in the Dallas, Texas area. I also hold free small group classes every summer. Topics that I have tutored include K-8 Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus.
During the first few sessions, I get to know each person and some things about the course that they are taking such as the syllabus content, the type of grade wanted in the course, the number of points each assignment is worth, and the date of the next major test. I then try to hold tutoring sessions in accordance with this information.
During a session, I go over homework, explain concepts that may be misunderstood, go over topics that I think are especially important, and sometimes give practice problems. Periodically, I would ask about the grade that was made on a recent test and modify my tutoring style as necessary. My goal is to help everyone that I tutor strengthen their mathematical skills.
I normally tutor by appointment and each session usually lasts for about 1 hour. In order to reschedule or cancel an appointment, I request a 10-hour notice. Missed sessions may be charged for the first 15 minutes. I am willing to meet in a public place or online.
To help better prepare for the sessions, I request that the problems or concepts that we will work on be sent a few hours in advance.
If we are not able to meet live, I am willing to compose a written lesson covering the requested topics.
If you would like for me to purchase a textbook as well, please let me know.
If a student is currently enrolled in a course, I look forward to getting to know their instructor and formulating a plan to better assist the student.
Feel free to send me a message and we can get started! Thank you. :)
