"Over the past twenty years, both before and since obtaining my math PhD, I have tutored hundreds of students in all levels and courses, all the way from beginning middle school courses, to advanced college math courses that only math majors take. I have about fifteen years experience teaching at the college level, but tutoring is more fun in several ways. In front of a large classroom, you are forced to say what is somewhat helpful to a number of people, yet it was not EXACTLY what ANYONE needed to hear. The classroom setting often makes it impossible to address any one student's specific need, since a group average "composite character" must be taught to instead. This can be frustrating.
It is much more fun to see an individual student's exact need, in real time, and respond exactly to that need, not to some average. I have very often, if not most often, found that students who thought they could not understand course material, only could not understand the explanation that was given to this phantom composite character. Their specific need did not happen to coincide with the group average need. The explanation addressed to the average did nothing for them, because the group average question was not THEIR question. In my experience, by far most students CAN understand course material, even if previously struggling, if they simply have their specific individual questions and needs addressed. It is much more rewarding, on a personal level, to be able to provide that.
I have a mathematics PhD, so I am comfortable teaching all math courses and levels. The list of specific courses would be very long, so it is easier to simply say, "All courses and levels." Not all courses I tutor are listed yet, since I am new to Wyzant and have not yet had a chance to take tests for each individual course. But yes, to get the PhD, I assure you that they made me know that. :)
