In addition to I tutoring several students in mathematics through WyzAnt, I use algebra 1 and 2 a good deal in my teaching and during the course of my work as a research chemist.

...As one of my parents noted, I love using praise as a motivation. There's nothing quite so motivating as to hear someone say "You did a GREAT job! I'm so proud of you!" My background includes leading web-based seminars, on-site workshops, and on the job training.

...I try to explain concepts using down-to-earth terms and examples with visual aids whenever possible. My goal is to make the individual topics not only easy to understand but also intuitive to the point that my students can do more complex problems without much more effort. My specialty is in math, but I tutor science and economics as well and provide standardized test preparation.

...In a classroom, I cannot easily spot a student's struggles. However, in a one-one one situation, a student and I can better work together to identify what it is that impedes learning. I strongly believe in helping children learn how to turn overwhelming tasks into underwhelming chunks.
