Most tutors lack the personal experience of struggling with math in school, and therefore fail to learn how to teach someone who needs a different approach.
I am a Garfield High School graduate, currently studying as an applied mathematics student at UVIC, but math didn't always come easily to me. I know how hard math can be to understand.
That is why I want to help students like you become confident in their classes by taking an alternative approach to learning. In my lessons I use visuals, practical applications of concepts, step-by-step guided work, and practice work to find how you learn best.
Excellent explanations made difficult concepts a breeze. Concepts that my teachers made confusing turned out to be much easier to understand with the help of Math Made Simple. He always knew when to slow down when I was not understanding something.
I like the instructor a lot he gets his points his points across very clearly. He really makes math simple! He’s also very patient.
Very knowledgeable and personable tutor who understands how to simplify seemingly complex concepts. He was very helpful with both math and computer science, and as someone who has never considered STEM a strength, it was a breath of fresh air compared to my teaching in school.
I like to start off by introducing myself and then asking a few things about them: interests, hobbies, best subject, learning style.
Next we go over what areas/concepts they need help with, and establish what they want to get out of tutoring. In the end, how we spend our time is completely up to the student.
I am currently studying applied mathematics at the University of Victoria. Some of my relevant classes there have been: Calculus 100, and MATH 151 precalculus.
In high school I took Algebra II, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus, and MATH 141 and 142 at Seattle Central community college.
Taking several years of calculus has really strengthened my basic math skills (arithmetic -> algebra II) to the point where I am confident teaching them to others.

Tutors.com is the first official tutoring business that I have used, however I have been tutoring friends and my siblings throughout high school and University.
I have worked with high school students in Algebra II, Precalculus, Calculus, AP Computer Science, and University students in Calculus 100, MATH 110 (economics applied calculus).
Every teacher should have a solid understanding of the topic at hand. Make sure you find one who can convey that information to you in a way that is effective for YOU.
Which concepts do you want to spend time focusing on?
How have you learned best in the past? In other words, think back to your favorite class where you learned A LOT. What was it about that class that helped you learn?
