Tutoring Style
I have experience teaching high school
mathematics on a one to one teacher to
student ratio at a non-public boarding
school.  I also have taught high school
level math in typical classroom
environments of public schools.  
Subjects I have taught are Algebras 1
and 2, PreCalculus, Calculus, and SAT
Math Preparation.

Prior to teaching, I worked in industry in
a number of roles with the most time
spent coordinating product safety

I have also served the roles of music
director and counselor at a camp for
those with special needs.
My approach to students is to be
non-judgmental in regards to their
difficulties.  However, I also want
students to gain self confidence in the
abilities they have but may not

My typical teaching emphasis, for better
concept retention and application, is for
students to be able to understand and
use concepts, rather than for just
memorization.  I am willing to adjust my
teaching goals and emphasis to what is
wanted or needed by the paying client.

I will communicate with the student to
determine specific obstacles to
understanding that need to be removed;
and I will try to figure out ways to help
a student remember procedures, steps
or relationships.
