What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to start with map scores to get an idea of student strengths and weaknesses.  This helps me develop a strategy for aiding the student.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a masters in education  and 7 years teaching experience in secondary education.  I have been tutoring since my sophomore year in college.  

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I only work with motivated students who are willing to put the work in.  If I see a lack of motivation I will be impatient and leave the student.  Pricing depends on the situation but for my qualifications and experience I am very reasonable.

How did you get started teaching?

I got started in education sophomore in college.  I worked in the writing center, a place to help students edit papers.  Often there was a line out the door for my services because of my attention to detail and patience.  Several English learners made it a habit to come by and visit me before essays were due.  I have since gone to graduate school and student math education.  The impetus for all of this is the helping people.  I have gifts of patience and creativity which benign affect my teaching.  

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all sorts of students.  Gifted, struggling, ELL, IEP, in my 7 years in the classroom I have encountered all types of learners.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I will work hard and expect you to do the same.  Math is a language, I will be there to translate that language into something you are familiar with.
