I feel that I have a unique perspective when it comes to teaching math. Creative thinking and problem solving, that’s all math is: you get a certain set of clues, and you use those to answer a certain question. Some just need a little help with how to use the clues or even identifying the question. Each person needs different things from a tutor. My technique is to study those I help as they learn, so that I can discover how I can teach them more effectively. I can show you math through a non-math perspective.
- Wage: $20/hr, I take check or cash.
- I travel to a designated meeting spot (ex: your home, the library) where we carry out a tutoring session.
- You are responsible to provide the materials (ex: math textbook, math workbook) you want to go over during the session.
