"As a student, I was gifted in math. I went through school rarely scoring anything lower than a 95 in math courses. I routinely tested in the 99 percentile on standardized test, and as a 6th grader test showed I was already beyond the 11th grade level. I finished several college math courses with a 105 average.

"As a student, I was gifted in math. I went through school rarely scoring anything lower than a 95 in math courses. I routinely tested in the 99 percentile on standardized test, and as a 6th grader test showed I was already beyond the 11th grade level. I finished several college math courses with a 105 average. I started tutoring math in January of 2001. I have math tutoring experience from k-12 and college students in courses that include basic math, pre-algebra, algebra, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, and SAT math. I have remained involved in math after finishing my degree in 2001 because I love mathematics. It has always been my passion, and I enjoy helping others achieve success in their math courses.

First I write down the rules for students to use as a guide to solve problems. I believe the old saying "repetition is the father of learning" is very true. As a student in college, I had a professor who would walk into the classroom, and begin writing example after example. I have adopted that approach because it helps students become familiar and establish a routine to problem solving. Then I solve some more similar problems while explaining the rules in each step. Finally after solving many problems of my own, the students solve problems from the textbook. I also provide references to material that can help advance the student’s knowledge.

I have been tutoring math for 17+ years in courses that include basic math, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Physics, Statistics, Economics, SAT/ACT/ASVAB/GED/CRCT Prep. In that time, I have worked with students ranging from elementary to college; and thus, truly understand what students require to understand math concepts and curriculum that they might initially struggle with. I have a degree in Mathematics from Savannah State University, and a love for what I do. I have much patience, great communication skills, and know how to reach out to people of all ages. I also scored the highes" less...
