"I have taught one year of high school Algebra and one semester of college Developmental Math. I have tutored students at various ages and levels, including GED students in a program provided at my church. I encourage each student to take responsibility for his/her learning and help me determine areas in which I can help. I try to break down a problem to make it easier to understand while asking for my student’s input in the solution. I want a student to tell me how to solve a problem rather than me tell the student. This helps to build a student’s confidence."
