"I have worked as a math teacher with tutor vista, Pearson and eage from 1/2007 to 1/2012. At the same time worked as math content developer. Presently (since 3 yrs) I am working as private math tutor. So I earned 8 yrs of tutoring experience. I have students from primary, middle grade and higher grade. At the same time I am tutoring for competitive exams like SAT, ACT. I am familiar with the entire Middle and High School Mathematics curriculum, the state standards and the new Common Core approach. I know what's coming next years when you start higher grade. And because I know higher math, I teach in a way that focuses on building a solid foundation with future classes in mind. As teacher for 8 years and content developer for many educational sites, I am familiar with different learning styles and I have developed different techniques and strategies, so I can individualize lessons. I have a passion for communicating/teaching complex ideas that I have studied to others, and I am particularly great at breaking things down as much as it is required until it makes perfect sense for students. I believe what makes a great teacher is not just how knowledgeable she/he is, but it is how effectively she/he can connect to the student and communicate her/his knowledge. I will work toward building the studentís intuition for the type of material we will work on together. I make great use of effective examples. But at the end, great problem solving skills are only reached by practice. And that is why in most of my sessions, I will focus more on having the student solve numerous different types of problems. I will try to identify where the student is having difficulties and progress from there. In my experience, small misconceptions are usually the reason for having difficulties with more complex problems, thus it is very important to pinpoint those misconceptions and correct them. I am friendly and approachable, and at the same time serious about my job. And my personal goal is to introduce to my students the fun side of mathematics. I would like to offer 1 hr free demo session for every new student." less...
