Tutor since 1999. Most recently my clients were a boy and a girl, both sophomores, at a private school. Each had very different needs, strengths, and goals. My goal is to take the fear, panic, and chaos out of math. I do not tutor for statistics. However, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trig, even Calculus I'm well versed in. My students are usually 10 and up, including adults. My style is patient. I'm willing to do the tedious stuff. I've found that often kindness and confidence are 85% of what a struggling math student needs. In the past I have been extremely ready to lend a hand. There have been occasions when I was asked to pick a client up and drive them to/from the tutoring lesson. I don't mind feeding them a snack or waiting a bit for an adult to arrive.
