...I am very laid-back and patient, especially during tutoring since I am aware of how stressful school can be. I love tutoring because it does not feel like work to me. I enjoy seeing a student finally understand something that they have been struggling with, and seeing them use the methods I teach in their approach to new material.

...In high school I helped classmates when they did not understand certain concepts in our math classes. I also tutored a friend's younger brother for about a year and a half, in Geometry and Algebra 2. His parents asked if I could help him because he was struggling in geometry and we succeeded in raising his grade from a D on his progress report to a B on his first report card.

...I have also tutored a student once as well. Preferred method of teaching:I really like to make use of pen and paper or chalk and chalk board. In other words, I am a strong believer in either writing it down or drawing a picture to help illustrate what is said.

...I was also the DEAN for grades 6-12 at a Christian international school. If math doesn't make sense and isn't useful, then it's pointless. I enjoy providing students with practical application to the rigor of math.

As a CPA and manager, I found that I loved passing on my knowledge to my staff and they mostly flourished in their careers. I recently retired and find that I miss sharing what I know. Accounting seems scary at first.
